What do you do if you see someone wearing a swastika?
Do you confront the offender? Inquire why the person is displaying the hated sign of the regime that perpetrated the Holocaust? Educate? Walk away?
The decision is harder if the person in question obviously means no harm and is apparently oblivious to the Swastika’s emotional impact on Jews, if not on anyone who grew up in the era of World War II or has some historical consciousness.
A swastika on the banner of an airplane startled beach-goers in New York and surrounding states.
The banner included the word swastika and a swastika intertwined with a Star of David, the symbol of the Raelian movement. On Saturday it flew over New York, Long Island and New Jersey, while another flew over Los Angeles, according to reports.
