LAS VEGAS, NV, June 20, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Raelians have invited
Buddhists, Hindus and the numerous spiritual groups who use the
swastika as their spiritual symbol to stand up and show their support
for the third annual Swastika Rehabilitation Day, to be held June 23 in
cities around the world.
The swastika has been a symbol of peace and good luck in many Eastern
religions and can be found on religious monuments and scriptures on
every continent. It is also part of the spiritual symbol of the Raelian
Rael, the Movement's spiritual leader, has explained the recurrent
presence of the swastika as the symbol of the advanced scientists who
created all forms of life on Earth and guided humanity with the
teachings of peace and love that are at the origin of all religions.
"The swastika is one of the best traces left by those who created us,
and the attempt to bury it as a symbol of violence and hatred only
gives credit to the horrible Nazi ideology," said Thomas Kaenzig,
coordinator of World Swastika Rehabilitation Day. "Demystifying the
original meaning of this beautiful symbol is the only solution," he
explained. "We can't accept the fact that the swastika is still being
hijacked, just as Christians wouldn't accept that the Christian cross
was used to represent the ideology of the Ku Klux Klan. Images of
swastikas within synagogues and various other ancient sites in Israel
have also helped people of Jewish origin to recognize the importance of
this rehabilitation day."
Kaenzig said it's time to educate the public and rehabilitate what
Raelians consider to be the most important symbol for humanity. He
added that this year's world demonstration will include flying large
swastika banners in the skies of several U.S. cities and presenting
street swastika animations in Karlsruhe, Germany, and in Tel Aviv,
The Vancouver Raelians will be informing the public on June 23th at the
South side of the Vancouver Art Gallery between Howe St and Hornby
St from 12:00 (noon) to 3:00 pm.
