Menorahs Vandalized in South Bay

The Mercury News Reports (hat tip Jewschool):
Two Silicon Valley menorahs were vandalized over Hanukkah, the latest crime coming Thursday night when a rabbi arrived at his Sunnyvale center to find the 5-foot candelabra high dragged away from its place, its candles snuffed and stolen and its steel body bent in half.

A Mountain View menorah placed in front of the city's civic center was also damaged Dec. 15, the first night of the Jewish observance. Late that night a rabbi discovered the menorah's lights had been smashed and the wires yanked out.

Police in Sunnyvale and Mountain View separately confirmed they were investigating the cases. But the departments had not connected the incidents and reported no suspects had been identified.

What do you guys think? Was it a war on Chanuka?
