For thousands of years accross many cultures,...
... the swastika conveyed and still conveys...
... only positive sentiments.
To many people's surprise...
... the swastika can be found worldwide...
... also integrated in ancient buildings in Israel.
It can also be found...
... in some of the oldest churches on earth;...
... in the rock church of Lalibella, Ethopia.
The Buddhists, Jains and Hindus...
... have used the swastika...
... as a spiritual symbol thoughout Asia.
Today, it is shunned in the west ...
... due to a lack of understanding...
... of the swastika's true origins and meaning...
... but mainly...
... because it was hijacked by the Nazis...
... which gave the swastika...
... a tarnished reputation...
... which it does not deserve.
Most people are unaware of the...
... integrated use of the swastika...
... entwined with the US and ...
... North America's past...
... mainly with good luck and...
... well being in the late 1800...
... and early 1900.
As you can see, ...
... the US accepted this symbol...
... long before...
... the Nazis befouled it.
Extensively used in the US...
... as a sign of protection...
... stated on this emblem.
''May this emblem...
... protect you well...
... from every bullet, ...
... every shell.''
Also, on the early French...
... and US air force planes.
The Finland air force...
... and military medals.
And even on the Finland...
... Presidential flag...
... and the US flag...
... referred to here as...
... a lucky star.
In the US, ...
... the swastika was also used...
... on a corporate level...
... on Coca-Cola bottles, ...
... American Boy Scouts, ...
... and even in...
... minting the early 1800 coins...
... and poker chips.
Not only was the swastika used...
... used by the US military...
... and corporations, but also...
... by Canadian male and female...
...hockey leagues.
Before Americans embraced the swastika...
... the Native peoples such as...
... the Navajo, used the swastika...
... as their spiritual symbols...
... seen here on early rugs, ...
... carpets and quilts.
Even Jackie Bouvier Kennedy...
... can be seen here...
... in native dress attire.
It was even used in landmarks...
... highway markers...
... and on the Laguna Dam...
...in Arizona, ...
... built in the early 1900s.
Also, ...
... there is a Swastika town...
... in Ontario Canada...
... and one in the US...
... Clinton County, New York.
The swastika is the symbol...
... of the scientists who created us...
... which is why we find it...
... on every continent...
... usually associated with...
... spiritual and peaceful groups.
The swastika has been the symbol...
... of peace and well-being...
.... for millions of Buddhists, ...
... Hindus and for Raelians as well, ...
... as it is their symbol of infinity, ...
... time...
... and a symbol of eternity.
Discrimination is not only found...
... in Europe and all parts of the US...
... it is also found down under...
... in Australia.
Having a peaceful exhibit...
... informing the public of...
... the true meaning of the swastika...
... surprisingly, the police showed up, ...
... harassing the peaceful exhibit, ...
... threatening and arresting...
... the leader of the Australian movement,...
... Jarel, ...
... who was taken to jail...
... with no explanation of charges, ...
... just pure discrimination.
''Yes, they didn't do nothing wrong!...
... Only to show the peace and love.''
Banning cannot solve anything, ...
... education is the only way.
Children should be taught at school...
... about the beauty of this ancien symbol...
... of peace and harmony...
... instead of always being referred to...
... as used by the Nazis.
This is why Rael, ...
... founder and leader of the...
... International Raelian Movement...
... initiated the idea of a...
... 'World Swastika Rehabilitation Day', ...
... which takes place every year...
... in cities around the world.
''Buono swastika day!''
