American website started selling Teespring t-shirts and t-shirts decorated with colorful and monochrome swastikas, which the manufacturer of the products, company KA Designs, aims to make «a symbol of love and peace.»
About it writes on Sunday, August 6, the website of the newspaper the Jerusalem Post.
On one of the shirts with a swastika painted in the colors of the rainbow and labeled Peace, other color words Zen and Love. The cost of these products varies in the range from 20 to 35 dollars.
We will remind that earlier the Nazi symbol was used by Buddhists and Hindus believed that it brings to people’s lives the harmony and luck. KA Designs is trying to deprive the token negative associations, and restore him to the original meaning.
Unfortunately for his company philanthropic goal, Arsen Ostrovsky, Executive Director of the Israeli Jewish Congress, called the idea «disgusting and offensive».
«It is extremely naive and deeply offensive. What, then, is to use symbols IG to promote gender equality?» – ironically asks Ostrowski, who expressed the hope that the creators of this production will come to their senses and correct his mistake.
