Monial, the "Battle of Britain" was an extended bombing campaign against Great Britain by the Luftwaffe. The fighter pilots who defended Great Britain were drawn from the RAF, and the United States AAF. The few Polish pilots who participated flew CAP against Bomber formations picked up by radar and engaged them WELL off the British coast.

Yes, many Britons died during the Battle of Britain, however, now it seems that you`re implying that your grandfather was either amongst the support personnel (which isn`t true... no Polish nationals were used for ground defense on the British Isles... the Home Office verifies this if you`d care to look it up.) or he was a pilot, which is doubtful, since you would have mentioned that in your original post in which you claimed he died "fighting in Britain"

Regardless... there was NO GROUND CAMPAIGN in the British Isles during WWII.

You can stop trying to rewrite history any time you`d like.

Osirisascent you like to use word poo and others a lot, .... Maybe you know "your" history but you know nothing , obviously about the rest. Apart from pilots there were houndreds of support service officers, mechanics, inteligence officers and common soldiers, as it normally be in any military unit. How about Navy ?I gave link to Wiki because you are to undereducated to know that there was loads of soldiers dying in Great Britain in WW2. I made a link to Wiki as you faild to observe a single fact of war reaching G.B. Tell me then where the ruins in London, bombed airfield in Northolt, bombed port of Bristoland others come from ? I guess they killed them self.

@ Monial: I know my history. Better than you obviously. Posting a link to a Wikipedia article doesn`t prove your point about your grandfather. I did you the courtesy of reading the entire article, and see nothing that indicates any Polish military action in Great Britain during the war.

In the event that your grandfather was a fighter pilot (Many Polish pilots escaped the invasion with their aircraft and fought under RAF command), I think you would have mentioned that was a pilot, NOT just said "he was killed fighting in Britain).

Monial, I am neither angry, nor ignorant, but I DO take issue with people that post bullsh*t, or completely make sh*t up and quote unsubstantiated figures and statistics thinking that no one will call them on it.

Getting back on topic, the only reason I took issue with you to begin with, was your claim that the swastika was NOT offensive to most of the world`s population.

Reminds me when my friend (who`s black) drew the swastika on his notebook as a joke in high school. The teacher saw him and sent him out. He told her its just a joke but she got so mad and sent him to security. He got up and started walking like a nazi out of the class. I was the only one laughing. She was crying (she`s jewish and we found out the next day). I feel really bad now.

@ Monial: With every comment you leave here, you say things that are more outlandish, and completely off point.

First, you stated that your grandfather died during WWII fighting in Great Britain.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but no one ever invaded Great Britain during WWII, so I can`t accept your claim that your grandfather died "fighting" there.

Second, (and I`ll really try to leave this alone after this post) All you`re doing at this point is trying to justify your original statement that the majority of the world`s population does not find the swastika offensive. You`re doing so with long rambling posts that have absolutely NOTHING to do with your original comment.

No one here has claimed the Holocaust happened in that classroom.

Your comments become more outrageous and outlandish as this goes on, so perhaps it`s best to just drop it altogether, since you`re making no sense whatsoever.

Osirisascent. As for your reference to me claiming that this countries are not in Asia. I did not stated that I said Other part of the globe, as the whole THE WHOLE GLOBE. Now I can bet any money that apart from Russia , you wan`t find many people in some of that countries, knowing about WWII , let alone nazis, sfastikas and Hitler. Travel trough them first and ask what peoples memories and problems are before you say that they know about it. Get out from your country and try to learn more about others.

Osirisascent.I do not disrespect people of the WWII generation. Infact my granddad died in WWII fighting in Great Britain. I am not here to discuss with your point of view, as you far to angry . Answer now this: What is wrong here? The shape of the tables in class or people who made that picture? Or people who jump in to conclusion that it must be some Nazi Hitler Training Ground? It might be nothing in it, like it use to be in my class. Its just people who can`t understand a diference between real life and internet, jumping on the outraged bandwagon, claiming the atrocity happened in that class and failing to see others point of view. Problem is we don`t know what it really is. Another thing Not being buddist in China or Vietnam doesn`t make you not to see and know symbols. Regards Monial.
SuperSmash I do agree with you. Thats not what I tried to explain in my first post. We all do not know witchother close enough to discuss anything, let alone socio-politics. Regards Monial

@ Monial: So NOW you`re implying that the countries I listed are NOT in Asia?

Wow... you`re just an amazing example of an individual who will go to any length, including claiming that countries in Asia are not part of Asia to prove a point that cannot be proved.

You`ve made up statistics that cannot be verified, and used population estimates in a futile attempt to prove that in YOUR eyes, the swastika is NOT an offensive symbol to the majority of the world.

I`m not trying to change your mind... you`re far too hard headed to admit that you`re wrong.

As for your being Polish... I`m going to hazard a guess that any living member of your family, or ancestors that were in Poland on September 1, 1939 do not share your views of the swastika being a symbol of peace.

By the way, not all Chinese and Vietnamese are Buddhists, so it is incorrect to claim that 3/4 of the world`s population shares your views.

monial, hate to just jump in here, but you have to consider the audience. If this were done in Asia, which it might have been, you`d be right. If it were done in Europe or the United States then it`s s swastika with all the connotations that come with.

If you see a white guy with a shaved head wearing a shirt with this symbol, would you think, "Hey, that`s a symbol for peace in Asia."
No, you wouldn`t. If you saw a monk in Asia wearing this symbol, then maybe you could say that.

osirisscent I do not try to convert your thinking. You will not change my mind and I will not change yours. You telling me about puting whole Asia in to one basket,but you are doing the same with several nations from diferent part of our globe. I spent 15 years in China, 5 in India and 2 in Vietnam. Thats about 3/4 of Earth population. Thay do NOT see this sign as a bad thing and thats all I am saing. Maybe you will understand if I tel you that I am Polish and in my class we had tables set up like that sometimes. No one seen it as Sfastika, it was just the shape. Overreacting and oversensitivity of some people is enormous, There is always someone jumping to be first to comment on something on the internet just to say something believing everyone is thinking the same way.
You do not have to bring out typos of mine, thats just sad practice. Now Peace.

@ Monial: Your ignorance knows no bounds... What you`re doing here is lumping everyone on that continent together.

No one, least of all me is disagreeing with the fact that a swastika has a benevolent purpose among certain Asian cultures.

However, you continue to try to group ALL Asians together in what has become a pathetic attempt to prove your point.

Your "pirledge" of living is Asia for 22 years is irrelevant, and shows you know little about the continent you allegedly lived on.

You`re saying that people in Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikstan, The Phillipines, Burma, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, East Timor, Armenia, Bahrain, Azerbaijan, Brunei, Cyprus, Georgia, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Maldives, Qatar, Oman, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Yemen and ISRAEL don`t see it as a Nazi symbol.

Stop talking sh*t.

Try buying a clue... and maybe a map before you make such foolish generalizations.

[quote]@Almightybob1, it`s not pretending. It`s history. The only reason the swastika is considered a violent and hateful symbol is because most people have only seen it that way. IGNORANCE is why it is considered racist. So you tell me, are Buddhists crazed racist killers too? Hitler took a symbol that had positive meanings and defaced it. It`s not my stupidity, my friend, it is your ignorance.[/quote]

And which do you think is the more historically significant event? Buddhists hugging each other, or one of the worst genocides in human existence? Yes, Hitler defaced it. He did so permanently. We all know what it used to represent, but to pretend that the swastika will ever be free of the taint of Nazism IS stupidity.

@ Clayboy: You said "patchouly, as a 30-39 year old man, have you ever asked yourself why seeing a swastika is so repulsive to you? Do you have personal grievances with nazis? Are there any nazis left anyways?"

Are you delusional???

Every western society has active Nazi and Neo-Nazi groups among their population. It`s ignorant for you to imply otherwise.

You also said: "Let history be part of the past. Its not exactly a big deal."

I fail to see how the genocide of 6,000,000 Jews, 3,000,000 Soviet POWS, 2,000,000 Ethnic Poles, 1,500,000 Romani, and nearly 500,000 Disabled Persons, Homosexuals, and other religious minorities is "not exactly a big deal".

You`re a sick, sick, person for even implying that.

@ Monial: I most certainly did NOT say "the whole world see it as nazi sfastica" (no, I will not correct your misspelling).

I said the MAJORITY of the world now sees it as a representation of something horrible.

YOUR statement "most of population of Asia see it as positive symbol" has absolutely no basis in fact. Quoting estimated population figures to try to prove your point is ludicrous.

While it does indeed represent certain positive aspects of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, the Chinese didn`t adopt it as a symbol to represent the sun until the Tang Dynasty.

Yes, it is a symbol that has been used for various reasons by many societies all over the world.

Because of its use by Hitler and the Nazis and, in modern times, by neo-Nazis and other hate groups, the swastika is largely associated with Nazism and white supremacy in most Western countries.

Actually, the swastika stands for good luck, this is a reverse swastika and should only be perceived as offensive if your mom died of bad luck.

A swastika, after the Nazis used it as their symbol, will forever be associated with them. To pretend otherwise is stupid.

Yes its fairly fresh history, but like other tragic events which have come and gone.. chances are you don`t get all defensive when you read about them in a history book or see the signs associated with them. I mean, if this was the case.. we would see the Christian cross pretty negatively still for all the atrocities associated with it. But we don`t.

Look, to boil it down, the only reason those desks are made into a swastika is because whoever made it knows that someone will react to it.

Let history be part of the past. Its not exactly a big deal.

It`s not really an argument patchouly, I`m just saying that it hasn`t changed forever everywhere, and that we have to be respectful of other peoples` beliefs and religions. In Europe and the States (oh yeah, and Canada) it`s changed, but in many other places it remains the same. In this case, change only happens if you allow it.

Aside from the fact that it`s backwards...

Really?!? Why are there folks arguing that the swastika is OK?

You used to be able to walk up to someone and say they were "looking mighty gay today". Now, unless you are speaking to a homosexual, you are apt to get a fist in the nose.

Meanings are changed and altered with time. The Swastika`s meaning has been forever altered and all the "but it used to mean this..." crap will never make it not hold the new meaning.

What happened happened. You can`t take it back...

You know, I didn`t grow up during WW2, so as far as I`m concerned, it can be whatever anyone wants it to be. For myself, when its backwards.. I see it as a peace sign as it was originally intended.

Based on the abundance of chairs, the single desk off to the right, and the person in the upper right, I would say they just decided to put the desks together like this for "fun", and that the class is not actually organized like this.

Also, I feel for both sides of the argument. Yes, it started out as a good thing. Yes, it was stolen by evil, and that`s how the world views it. My question is this: Is it too early to try and erase its association with evil and bring back the good part? I just don`t know. Will our understanding of what happened be different because we choose to "give back" the symbol? What if we only associate the symbol in a white circle on a red background with Nazism? Why give it back at all?

More than my mind can handle.

Someone just didn`t think this through.

@ Everyone babbling on about it being "an ancient symbol, blah, blah, blah..." put a sock in it.

Regardless of the symbol`s original meaning, the majority of the world now sees it as a representation of something horrible, and that is something that quite possibly will NEVER change.

It seriously pisses me off that EVERY time a representation of a swastika shows up in a link here, the same people keep trying to say there`s nothing wrong with it.

We KNOW it was appropriated by the Nazi Party, NOT created by them.

That doesn`t change what the majority of the world`s population now associates it with.

I have that setting of the tables in my school sometimes and it has nothing to do with sfastika.
1. Its a good seting to work in groups
2. No one is making it in to fasist sfastika, because not everyone in the world have to think " lets do it in Hitlers way"
3. Sfastika is adopted by Nazis, has nothing to do with their sick ideals. Is actually older than any western civilization and its banned in Germany. On Indian subcontinent you can us it as you want.

So why not ?
