Well, it's too late now but if the only concern was the trees grew in a swastika-like shape, why not just plant more larches around to obliterate the shape. Everyone was so concerned with being PC they jumped in and destroyed these valuable trees. I believe this is comparable to "cutting off your nose to spite your face".

Oh well, they were only following orders.

I say just let the trees stay. You can only see them at 1000 ft anyway.

Besides, I thought neo-Nazi organisations were considered illegal in Germany, so if there are pilgrims....

So the PC finally cut the trees down? :(

What next, will they blow up a mountain range because it was shaped like a swastika from the sky?

Psycho Mike wrote:Here in Chicago we have a fascist statue by the lake near the Shedd Aquarium- a gift to the people of Chicago from Mussolini! There is also a statue in front of the Field Museum that clearly has Mussolini in the collage!

Every now and then some groups tries to remove them but the city says it would cost too much to do so! No nazi's or Klansmen have ever rallied by these, presumably because going to museums is a low priority for them!
Simply because those statues were left there in honour of Italo Balbo who crossed the Atlantic in a close air formation risking his own life. A pioneer of flight and an hero of aviation like Juri Gagarin was. But nobody thinks to remove the red stars dedicated to him in any eastern village of Europe. :roll: Al Capone was not the only remarkable italian in Chicago, fortunately for you. God save the Windy City!

swastika is sacred for me

Post by gotham » 26 Mar 2004 07:10

hi Guys,
Ill tell u some things about swastika u didnt know as it originated here in my country India. Believe me its sacred as sacred can b.
Thereligious symbol which is also revered by Hindu and ranks second only to OM is the Swastika. Today, the Swastika is know the world over not as a religious symbolism of the Hindus but as the Nazi emblem. Hitler's use of the Swastika on the flag of National-socialist Germany has besmirched the Swastika. But the Swastika continues to hold a religious significance for the Hindus. Like OM, the origins of Swastika are lost in the misty realms of the past and they can only be guessed by piecing together of the surviving clues.


The word Swastika is normally believed to be an amalgam of the words Su and Asati. Su means 'good' and Asati meant 'to exist'.

As per Sanskrit grammer the words Su and Asati when amalgamated into one word become Swasti (as in the case of Su and Aaatam becoming Swagatam meaning welcome). If this derivation of the word Swastika is true, then the literal meaning of the term Swastika would be 'let good-prevail'.

So the seeing the symbol of swastika is not inauspicious nor does it have to b taken out.It might b symbolizing good

Cheers
Gautam
