aileencb7 -> Inappropriate Image? (12/31/2010 10:09:07 PM)

Is anyone else offended by the swastika above the doorway in this week's PAP #00290100372? It's the mirror image version, but it's still a swastika.

The reversed swastika is actually the original version (the Nazis were the one who reversed it) & is an asian symbol used to represent prosperity aand good fortune. So no, it would not be inappropriate.

In Japanese culture, the symbol is named Manji (the symbol of good),and it is used in several computer games.

Conceptis Puzzles Ltd. is an Israeli company, and I am sure it would never publish an image that promoted Nazism or anti-Semitism. As others pointed out, the symbol (also called the "gammadion" or "hooked cross") dates to Classical times, originally in the region of Pakistan and India, and did not have a meaning associated with hatred until the 20th century.

I just looked at the puzzle in question, and that is one of mine! It was never supposed to look like a swastika or even any symbol—just a piece of striped candy!

To me it looked like a fan.

I don't know what all the fuss is about.
