Swastikas a Symbol of White Supremacy?

We read:

SAFI stands with Jewish students and all those affected by the Swastikas drawn on the Fine Arts Center today. We are deeply hurt and disgusted by these anti-Semitic symbols being represented on our campus. This is an act of White Supremacy which is unacceptable and we must condemn it. Hate Has No Home at UMass:

I commented

Wow. This "an act of White Supremacy" shows how much you students still need to learn. The Mufti linked himself to Nazism from 1933 and served Hitler. We see swastikas all the time here in Judea and Samaria. The Gazan protestors wave it on flags and banners.

In case they remove it, here's a screensnap:

If you Google, you can find photos of swastikas held aloft in pro-Palestine demonstrations all over Europe as well, not only here on our borders

Who will teach these students?


Been sent this, part (I hope) of their solution to the swatikas:

"Students, we are here for you! For those who want to talk and be in community, here are a few opportunities:
"Our staff will be outside Peet's Coffee in the ILC today from 1:00-5:00 p.m. with bagels."We will hold open office hours in the Hillel House this evening from 4:00-8:00 p.m."Tomorrow, following Shabbat dinner, we will be holding space at Hillel for conversation, reflection, and processing. All are welcome to come by to be in community."

Nothing like bagels to ward off swastikas.
