The swastika is a symbol that was used in the 20 th century by of one of the most hated men ever to have lived, a symbol that now represents the slaughter of millions of people and one of the most destructive wars on Earth. But Adolf Hitler was not the first to use this symbol. In fact, it was used as a positive and powerful symbol thousands of years before him, across many cultures and continents.

Spiritual Beginning for the Swastika

For the Hindus and Buddhists in India and other Asian countries, the swastika was an important symbol for many thousands of years and, to this day, the symbol can still be seen in abundance - on temples, buses, taxis, and on the cover of books. It was also used in Ancient Greece and Rome, and can be found in the remains of the ancient city of Troy, which existed 4,000 years ago. The ancient Druids and the Celts also used the symbol, reflected in many artifacts that have been discovered. It was used by Nordic tribes, and even early Christians used the Swastika as one of their symbols, including the Teutonic Knights , a German medieval military order, which became a purely religious Catholic Order. But why is this symbol so important and why did Adolf Hitler decide to use it?

 

Positive Days of the Swastika

The word ‘swastika’ is a Sanskrit word (‘svasktika’) meaning ‘It is’, ‘Well Being’, ‘Good Existence, and ‘Good Luck’. However, it is also known by different names in different countries - like ‘Wan’ in China, ‘Manji’ in Japan, ‘Fylfot’ in England, ‘Hakenkreuz’ in Germany and ‘Tetraskelion’ or ‘Tetragammadion’ in Greece.

 

In 1979, a Sanskrit scholar P. R. Sarkar said that the deeper meaning of the word is ‘Permanent Victory’. He also said that like any symbol it can have positive and negative meaning depending on how it is drawn. So in Hinduism, the right-hand swastika illustrated below is a symbol of the God Vishnu and the Sun, while the left-hand swastika is a symbol of Kali and Magic.

 

The double meaning of symbols is common in ancient traditions , like for example the symbol of the pentagram (five pointed star), which is viewed as negative when pointing downwards, and positive when pointing upwards.

 

12,000 Years of Symbolism

The earliest swastika ever found was uncovered in Mezine, Ukraine, carved on an ivory figurine which dates back an incredible 12,000 years. One of the earliest cultures that are known to have used the Swastika was a Neolithic culture in Southern Europe, in the area that is now Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, known as the Vinca Culture, which dates back around 8,000 years.

 

In Buddhism, the swastika is a symbol of good fortune, prosperity, abundance and eternity. It is directly related to Buddha and can be found carved on statues on the soles of his feet and on his heart.  It is said that it contains Buddha’s mind.

 

On the walls of the Christian catacombs in Rome, the symbol of the Swastika appears next to the words “ZOTIKO ZOTIKO” which means “Life of Life”. It can also be found on the window openings of the mysterious Lalibela Rock churches of Ethiopia, and in various other churches around the world.

I would also like to hear any different views on Hitler. Did things happen the way it did as said in Western media or does somebody have a different version of what went down in Nazi Germany?

Holocaust denial, explained https://www.youtube....h?v=BtfR31PGZVA  

Jews were slaughtered in Russia as well not just by the Nazis. 

 

Goering was good at controlling publicity around Hitler. Thats probably how they got into power and then they simply controlled the mob, any descenters were whipped of to the concentration camps.

 

During the WW2 landings, where it is popularly portrayed that troups pushed forward across the very heavily fortified German lines. It doesnt mention a destroyer that broke orders and came into shallow water of one of the beaches and opened fire at almost point blank range at the german positions, allowing the troups to get of the beaches. Forgot the name of the beach, but it was one where they landed by mistake, I think. A bit of a **** up. I saw this a US war museum, cant remember which one either.

 The honorable Adolf Hitler fought the evil allies for the power of sacred Germany and the Aryan race to conquer the world. The corrupt governments of the west eventually defeated Adolf Hitler with the help of the communist Russia which were bribed by the Jewish people in their countries to defeat Nazi Germany. The Jewish race could not be exterminated fast enough before they bribed the leaders of other countries to attack Hitler ultimately like in Germany before the war, the Jewish scourge had dug its claws into such places as Washington and Moscow, Heil Adolf Hitler, Germany will rise again to conquer the world.

Thanks for your input. I will have to take a look at that video when I get a chance. I have not heard of Jews being slaughtered in Russia and it does make me wonder if all these Jews were slaughtered as they say what was the cause of it? What caused these entities to hate the Jewish religion and culture? For it is a religion and a culture not a race. Do they maybe have some kind of karma to fulfill with according to the Old Testament their god Yahweh murdering all those entities in the past? I know some hate is caused because some people believe Jews killed Jesus. It is all very interesting and trying to find the truth in it can be difficult. There are a few versions of the history.

 

And I know anybody can become Jewish:

For example, a few years ago a Korean American woman, Angela Buchdahl, was named Senior Rabbi of Manhattan’s Central Synagogue. She is the first Asian-American senior rabbi of one of the North America's largest (2,400 families) Reform synagogues.

Born in South Korea in 1972, Rabbi Buchdahl, and Chinese American Reform Rabbi Jacqueline Mates-Muchin, rabbi of Temple Sinai in Oakland, California. exemplify the new, ethnically and racially diverse face of the worldwide Jewish community, which now includes between 300-500,000 non-Jews who have become Jewish - formally by conversion or informally by acculturation into the Jewish people and its culture.

Thank you for your alternative version. It is nice to get a different perspective with things. Though I don't agree with it totally and I think their is more to it such as the Rothschild and bankers funding all sides and wanting to develop an empire in Israel. Also it came to my attention a few years ago that Prescott Bush of the US the father and grandfather of the 2 Bush presidents actually funded Hitler when he was coming to power.

 

Also I don't think Jewish is actually a race according to many researchers and:

Although Jewish people usually, but not always, share a common gene pool, they are not a race because any non-Jew who converts to Judaism will be recognized as being Jewish by all those rabbis who share a commitment to the same denomination of Judaism as the rabbi who did the conversion. 

 

When it comes to Jews who are non-religious or even anti-religious, they are considered secular or cultural Jews, unless they are converts to another religion. Orthodox Jewish law still considers even apostates to be Jewish because for over fifteen centuries Jews were frequently subjected to persecutions and forced conversions, which meant that thousands of Jews who were baptized still believed in the One God of Israel. 

Some Jews today who have converted to a Protestant Fundamentalist denomination call themselves “Jews for Jesus” or Messianic Jews; but almost all non-Orthodox Jews think they are simply mixed up.

 

New genetic studies show how over the centuries many non-Jews have entered the Jewish community and many Jews have, voluntarily or not, left the Jewish community. Today we can answer the complex question: are all present day Jews really the biological descendants of the Jews who inhabited the Land of Israel 3,000 years ago?

 

The answer is: Yes and No.

It is I think common knowledge during WW2 that lose lips sank ships. A large number of Germans emigrated to America before the war, and had children, who had at the very least patriotic simpathy's towards Gemany. Many of these children went to fight for the Germany, some on submarines. Some were even found dead with american cinema tickets, whereby they had clearly been ashore had a night on the town, and pumped local girl friends or sailors for information, ref convoy departures etc. 

 

WW2 started in 1949 America didnt join until later, for the first 2 years America sold and leased weapons preferring to stay neutral https://en.wikipedia...ng_World_War_II They did not officially join until 1941 after pearl harbour. (I thought it is 1940, perhaps im mistaken)

Qoute you might want to check out the Russians who may have had an agreement with Hitler in 1939 to divide the terroritory. Russia and Germany never officially went to war until 1941 also. The Russians were just as guilty of killing the Jews as the Germans were, perhaps they never got around to gas chambers,

 

https://en.wikipedia...in_World_War_II Just in case you cant read the link heres the first couple of paragraphs. 

"The Soviet Union signed a non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany on 23 August 1939. In addition to stipulations of non-aggression, the treaty included a secret protocol that divided territories of Romania, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland into German and Soviet Union "spheres of influence", anticipating potential "territorial and political rearrangements" of these countries.[2] In October and November 1940, German-Soviet talks about the potential of joining the Axis took place in Berlin, nothing came from the talks since Hitler's Ideological goal was Lebensraum in the East.

Germany invaded Poland on 1 September 1939 starting World War II, Stalin waited until September 17th before launching his own invasion of Poland.[3] Part of the Karelia and Salla regions of Finland were annexed by the Soviet Union after the Winter War. This was followed by Soviet annexations of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and parts of Romania (Bessarabia, northern Bukovina and the Hertza region). It was known at the Nuremberg trials the existence of the secret protocol of the German–Soviet pact regarding the planned divisions of these territories.[2] The invasion of Bukovina violated the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, as it went beyond the Soviet sphere of influence agreed with the Axis.[4]

On 22 June 1941, Hitler launched an invasion of the Soviet Union. Stalin was confident that the total Allied war machine would eventually stop Germany,[5] and with Lend Lease from the West, the Soviets stopped the Wehrmacht some 30 kilometers (or 18.6 miles) from Moscow. Over the next four years, the Soviet Union repulsed Axis offensives, such as at the Battle of Stalingrad and the Battle of Kursk, and pressed forward to victory in large Soviet offensives, such as the Vistula–Oder Offensive."

The Russians dont have a natural border/defendable mountain range like the Himalayas or the Alps, or even a river or sea to stop invaders.. The Geography of war is an interesting read.

Thanks for that. So it looks like the Soviets wanted a piece of the action in the world take over also. We should feel fortunate Hitler got greedy and invaded the Soviet Union. I think if Germany and the Soviets got to together we would live in a whole different world now. There is no doubt in my mind that nobody could have defeated the Soviets and Germany together.

That is a fact, luckily their ideologies were none compatible. If they had got along the world would be a different place. There would be no Israel for starters, We might have a slightly right wing europe, with most of the power and wealth centred on Berlin or Moscow. We might even be speaking in German or Russian goose stepping to labor camps. The Arian race might have decided to wipe out or enslave all other races around the world etc. Cultural diversity might no longer exist.

That is for sure. I guess it can be hard for psychopaths to get along. :lol: Well I can't say I wouldn't be to heart broken over no Israel.lol! My guess would be that they would have killed most of the darker races off and kept a few for slaves. Although I do remember I have read that Hitler had some contact with some Aliens. I am not sure how true that is and apparently they didn't help him win. Or maybe they tricked him. It definitely is a sad but interesting part of history.

Maybe the aliens wanted to wipe out a particular race, they perhaps modified in the past :shocked: and told hitler to do it, so that he could speak to the gods first hand  :innocent:

But if the Jews aren't a race then that wouldn't make sense. They are mixed with pretty much everything. Unless they were some kind of Aryan type of alien species something like the Nordics that wanted the whole world white. I am not sure what that would do them any good though. From what I heard he was connected to the Grey aliens. I think he made some kind of deal with them to get better weaponry. I am not sure what is part of the bargain was.

There is this though, not exactly to do with aliens. I do think Hitler was pretty confused.

 

Why did Germany accept Hitler and Arianism, the doctrine according to which the Herrenvolk, the Aryan master race, had the “natural right” (given by God, as stated in ‘ Mein Kampf’ ) to subdue and eliminate other races? 

https://www.ancient-...cialism-0012706

 

The Real Aryans

To quickly put any Nazi suppositions to rest, the earliest known Aryans lived in prehistoric Iran. These people migrated to northern India sometime around 1,500 BC. Previous inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent called these newcomers ārya. The English ‘Aryan’ comes from this Sanskrit word. Interestingly, the term has a cognate in the Persian language, ērān. This word is the source of the modern country name, Iran.

 

The Indus Valley Civilization was highly developed before the Aryans arrived. Some evidence “suggests that the Indus Valley Civilization had social conditions comparable to Sumeria and even superior to the contemporary Babylonians and Egyptians” (Violatti, 2013).  Religions had arisen around 5500 BC, farming communities around 4000 BC, and urban living around 2500 BC. The area reached its peak in 2000 BC.
