US Marines Pose with Nazi Symbol: To Them All Afghans are “Sand N*****s”

To these Marines all Afghans are probably “Sand N*****s” and so they have no issue with posing with a Nazi symbol.

The story below highlights that many Jewish organizations and others are outraged by the photo and are demanding an investigation. My question is how are the above soldiers going to be investigated or held accountable when you have soldiers who have clearly committed war crimes and perpetrated massacres getting off for free or a slap of the wrist?

Groups outraged by Marines posing with logo resembling Nazi SS want new probe, troops punished

(Washinton Post)

SAN DIEGO — A leading Jewish organization and others outraged by a photo showing Marine snipers in Afghanistan posing with a logo resembling a notorious Nazi symbol are demanding President Barack Obama order an investigation and hold the troops accountable. 

The Marine Corps has said it does not plan any discipline because there was no malicious intent. The Marines mistakenly believed the “SS” in the shape of white lightning bolts on the blue flag were a nod to sniper scouts — not members of Adolf Hitler’s special unit that murdered millions of Jews, gypsies and others, said Maj. Gabrielle Chapin, a spokeswoman at Camp Pendleton, Calif.

The Marines are no longer with Charlie Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, out of the base north of San Diego, and Chapin said she did not know if they had left the Corps. 

Military officials learned of the photograph in November and investigated immediately. It later surfaced on a blog of a military weapons company.

In the September 2010 photo taken in the Sangin district of Helmand province, 10 Marines pose with sniper rifles in front of an American flag above a dark blue flag with the “SS” letters.

Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder of Los Angeles’ Simon Wiesenthal Center, said he does not believe it was an innocent mistake and insisted the American public has a right to know what happened.

His organization — one of the largest international Jewish human rights groups with more than 400,000 members — is demanding Obama and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta launch another investigation and discipline those involved.

“That 70 years after the United States Armed Forces helped liberate Europe from Nazi Germany, to learn that a unit of the United States Marine Corps serving in Afghanistan adopted the SS insignia alongside the Stars and Stripes, desecrates the memory of some 200,000 Americans who gave up their lives to defend freedom against that infamous symbol,” he said in a statement.

The Corps has used the incident as a training tool to talk to troops about what symbols are acceptable, Chapin said.

“I don’t believe that the Marines involved would have ever used any type of symbol associated with the Nazi Germany military criminal organization that committed mass atrocities in WWII,” Chapin said. “It’s not within who we are as Marines.”

Hier said it clearly shows more training about the Holocaust and the SS unit is needed.

It was the second time this year that images have surfaced showing Marines acting improperly and forcing the Corps to deal with the fallout. Last month, the Pentagon scrambled to contain the damage after an Internet video purportedly showed Marines urinating on Taliban corpses — an act that appears to violate international laws of warfare and further strains U.S.-Afghan relations. Panetta called Afghan President Hamid Karzai to offer assurances of an investigation, and the top Marine general promised an internal probe as well as a criminal one.

Those Marines, like the ones in front of the flag, fought in former Taliban strongholds in Helmand province. They are based at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

  1. I’m no expert, but that symbol really looks photoshopped to me.

  2. I apologize to the bottom of my soul for these insulting, xenophobic individuals and the military that lets them act like this…..

  3. I used tio respect the Marines, but they have lost their honor completely in the last few weeks.

  4. aha.. they are just doing what they are told.. FUCK THE WAR AND THOSE WHO WAGE IT ON OTHERS.. FUCK THIS SHIT.. pisses me off.. why cant the troops just come back home..

  5. @ Dana House-Elf: The Pentagon admitted this photo is genuine.

  6. SMDH !!!!!!

  7. oh, that’s so, so sad.

  8. Do not like this, to me the Nazi symbol is all about hideous cruelty, genocide and is not to be used in any way.

  9. I’m part of Proud of Our Military for this shit?!

  10. Where do you get the title of this story with the content?

  11. as the article said, there was no malicious intent. It was probably a mistake. Like pokemon printing a swastika on one of their cards

  12. This is horrid. SHAME ON THEM. I hope they’re all knocked down a rank and forced to clean out the latrines (while taking MASSIVE cultural & ethnic sensitivity classes) for a very long time.

  13. People are confused about the meaning of symbols all the time. I’m pretty knowledgeable about WWII history and the Holocaust (I helped teach it for a few years), am Jewish, and had never seen that symbol before.

    Immediately jumping to conclusions and stereotyping all these Marines is disgusting, especially given the sacrifices they’re making for this country.

  14. They were part of the Marine Corps Scout Snipers.
    SS= Scout Snipers.
    Their fault that they used the type of font that was highly reminiscent of the Waffen SS double lightning bolts.

  15. Disgusting…

  16. hm.. as much as i support AAI, I have to call into question the spin on this article. It seems as though the author came up with the phrase “To these Marines all Afghans are probably “Sand N*****s” completely on his/own and then made it the title of the piece. There was no mention of that phrase anywhere else in the article. What gives?

  17. just remember 99.9% of our soldiers are not this way I have members in my family in the military and would find this outrageous!

  18. Nice try.

  19. That’s not a nazi symbol.

  20. To you folks in the photo and any likeminded individuas; Semper Fooey.

  21. @ zachary taylor.. are u kidding me? what sacrifices? killing civilians? killing a group of ppl who are one of the poorest on earth and didnt even know about 9/11 or the ALQAEDA?? AKA AFGHANS.. killing those ppl is not a sacrifice my friend.. its a crime.. its a crime and it needs to stop because the marines and all the army serving in afghanistan right now dont wanna be there.. BECAUSE ITS AN ILLEGAL UNDECLARED WAR!! i hope u understand.. peace

  22. Okay, the fact that this is a Nazi flag is a bad thing, obviously. They may or may not have known, but that’s a very different thing from saying they called Afghanis ‘sand n^&%s’ and what they probably think. This is a great site. Let’s keep it that way by sticking to the facts and not making assumptions. Lord knows there’s enough ugliness out there without making up more.

  23. There was an investigation and they were found to be just ignorant of the nazi connotation in that symbol, they were trying to depict that they were scout snipers, this was just a regrettable misunderstanding.

  24. I am beginning to hate what the military does to turn regular people into insensitive gun toting pricks and i am a vet!

  25. How could they NOT know we taught this HISTORY we have skin heads we have neo nazis dont we have enough problems in OUR army without THIS !

  26. Ugh!

  27. Not a nazi sign. Jeez I have respect for this page but it was Scout SNIPERs, S.S….so because two letters are next to each other and are the same as a bad symbol in the past, means that its the same thing?

  28. I agree with Michele. We can’t battle hate and ignorance with more hate and ignorance.

  29. Not a nazi symbol. Dakota is right ^^^^^^^^^^

  30. It is no coincidence that the symbol looks so much luke the “ss” symbol universally associated with hatred and “ethnic cleansing.” My father was a marine and would have been so ashamed!

  31. Dakota, are you really that ignorant of the history of that symbol? Perhaps if they’d used a swastica you could pretend that it was just the letter ‘X’ with flags attached?

  32. DIsgusting!

  33. 99.9% of soldiers aren’t like this? What about pissing on dead bodies? What about cutting figer nails offs? Whatt about tthe rapes we don’t hear of in the news? What about the drug abuse thatt goes on by these retarded teens? Open your eyes. These morons deserve to burn in hell.

  34. Cmon people read the whole story…Those are Marine Scout Snipers. Marine S.S. They are obviously holding sniper rifles, so what’s the big deal? If it mildly resembles a 70 year old nazi symbol it’s coincidental.

  35. @Michelle ..I know..the title is a poor attempt at spinning unfounded information …..To these marines..all afghans are probably sand****** anyway….hmmmmm…uhmmm no…I love all races..God created everyone.What a huge. unjustified,assumption…hate unfounded…or at least a divide.And why? I am american. All americans are immigrants except native groups. Mostly we are immigrants. No matter how much reason, a good debate,a peace treaty…..This is a Holy War..these are tactics..Your article does not define the marines..who are still individuals & warriors!!!!Our country was founded on Gods word & the Holy Bible..That will not be debated. Because it is true. God Bless America & Our leaders to protect & pteserve all the freedoms our forefathers fought for.And God bless the opressesed, hungry, poor orphaned & widows….God bless Israel and Our King who will reign eternally on Her throne and David shall sit at Jesus Christ, right hand side as Prince on Mt. Zion in the Tabernacle of the Saints…Thank you for your Mercy Abba..

  36. I still support AAI, but that is defiantly not the SS flag. Let’s be more realistic.

  37. This is a DISGRACE to all of AMERICA!!! They should be dishonorably discharged………….

  38. Wjen I said Her, I was referring to Jerusalem..It is Jesus throne, after New Jerusalem is built…….,.

  39. The leading language in the headline needs to go. I support your organization, but no one actually said that.

  40. Really, Zach? You’d never seen this symbol before? Turn on the Nazi Channel (commonly known as History Channel) and you’ll see it in the first 5 minutes. I find it very hard to believe you.

  41. A lot of us have loved ones who died fighting that filth flag our boys are standing in front of they should be ashamed and their commanding officer should be demoted!

  42. Lynda: Israel’s an apartheid state that oppresses Christians and Muslims and the Founding Fathers were mostly Deists, not Christian. Might wanna do some reading before you post in the future.

  43. The military using symbols that are pernicious? Not a surprise to Native American Indians! What is ridiculous us that many if those who object will support race based mascots. The weapons used hubris the military have race based logos and names. Has anyone other than Natives American Indians objected to that. This is SILLY. Review all symbols, names, and logos and dump all raced based names/logos first. Then get rid of what MIGHT BE questionable symbols. If they are just symbols why do the Washington Redskins get hailed?

  44. Have you seen the latest Newsweek? Check out cover article on Christophia. Around the world people are being killed, beheaded, their churches burned, the clerics tortured and killed for no other reason than that they are Christian. Doesn’t make it right to do harm or ridicule to Muslims but it would seem racism knows no religious boundry.

  45. I’m about to un-like this page due to the spin on it. It’s almost as bad as msnbc and fox

  46. This title upset me too. There is enough bad stuff out there without stirring it up yourselves.

  47. Yeah, I don’t think it was some innocent mistake either. However, Loonwatch does some inexcusable speculation themselves. There’s no evidence that these Marines said anything about Afghans being that horrible word. I will say this, however. These Marines dishonor this country.

  48. Are you kidding me? How ignorant and stupid do you have to be? The commanders and NCO’s need to be held responsible. Well, as an Army vet, we used to say that Marines were just cannon fodder anyway.

  49. How can anyone be denying that this is a Nazi symbol? It’s the symbol of the SS. Go to Wikipedia for Christ’s sake, you’ll see it right there.

  50. Shameful and embarrassing

  51. did we learn nothing from history ?

  52. These military guys just think they can do and say anything. Bunch of ignorant bullies. I hate when people use that term of Arabic people.

  53. They must have the same issues as the afghani’s, well back in world war 2 there was a recorded group of MUSLIM. Gestapo officers in bosnia during that time , i am not saying that was a good thing but if they are posing with SS thunder bolts , and i draw to the conclusion the group of marines in the picture have much more a f**cked up philosophy problen problem.

  54. Krista: There is no evidence that these people DID use that term. None. It was completely made up by whoever decided to jump to conclusions and assume these people are Nazis and racists. I’d never seen that symbol before and I know at least as much about the Nazis as most Americans. Unless these people intentionally used a Nazi logo then they don’t deserve anything more than to become more aware of historical symbolism. I liked this page because I want to stop hate and violence, not because I want to read a bunch of people calling for those very things. The completely fabricated title of this story is exactly the opposite of what I thought this page would support.

  55. How sad

  56. What a horrible thing to say. You claim to promote diversity, but you’ve already judged these marines guilty. Shame on you!

  57. Those people here who are confidently stating that is not an SS symbol are either being disingenuous or just plain stupid. No one with a modicum of knowledge of the history of WW 2 would make such an idiotic statement. If you don’t know much about that war then just be honest and admit it and keep your trap shut. If those letters were meant to symbolise Sniper Scout then why were they written in runes? Hardly a coincidence. That being said, I don’t think the men in that pic are necessarily Nazis or racist. The Waffen SS of the Second World War were among the toughest, most dedicated, disciplined and ruthless warriors in Hitler’s army, and their opponents testified to that. For that reason I think a lot of military men to this day have a fetish (for lack of a better word) for their symbols and paraphernalia. I don’t think we should necessarily take it beyond that.

  58. I do want to add that the sniper team needs to be disciplined orat at least reprimanded. That picture is an insult to every brave American G.I. that lost his life fighting the S.S. in WW2.

  59. @Lynda Bell fuck israel they are a bunch of ignorant assholes and our forefathers werent christians their wives were thats why they went to church and btw john adams wanted to get holy texts from all over the world translated.into englisj

  60. English

  61. Israel are ignorant? Lmao. They aren’t savages who live by archaic rantings of a pedophile, murderer and thief.

  62. Krista the marines didn’t use the term. The person who wrote the article did.

  63. I’m against Islamaphobia, or racism of any kind, but, when you slag off the U.S. Marines, that pisses me off. These men are dieing every day for your freedoms. They deserve to be given leeway. OORAH!

  64. Dawood, pissing on dead savages like the taliban? Who cares. They do much worse to ppl alive.

  65. @Himat: They’re not out there shooting random people. They’re protecting civilians and government reconstruction projects so people can actually have basic services for the first time in decades. And Congress authorized the war; it’s not illegal under US law and it’s not illegal under international law because it was self-defense.

  66. Zach, thank you.

  67. Military training consists of tearing an individual down and reconstructing the individual to be an order-following part of a group/team. Training a person to fight a war (to kill) has always including dehumanizing the enemy. This is training gone awry – not well controlled. Don’t buy that they were ignorant of Germany’s Schutzstaffel (SS) – just beyond boundaries of political correctness.

  68. Oh grow up! Half the people barking about this have never served a day of their lives in the military nor know any one who has. Get a life, find something relevant to stand up for and leave the Marines alone. A simple ‘thank you’ will suffice…then move on and enjoy your freedom (you’re welcome).

  69. Traitors to my country and all it stands for.

    If the Taliban should kill these sub-humans. In fact I hope it happens. Not that I sympathize with the Taliban either, but for these “soldiers” to proudly align themselves with the greatest atrocity in world history is a betrayal to all mankind. Not just America.

    I hold no sympathy for terrorists. Just because they are Marines doesn’t mean they are not terrorists the same as the Taliban. All terrorists, including these traitors, deserve nothing more than a slow, terrifying, and painful demise.

    Fate will deal with them soon enough. I might not be religious, but I do believe in retribution, and I believe their well deserved tragedy will come naturally.

  70. Pretty weak. Also admin, why did you take down the Peter King article? Calling him out on the same day a devout Muslim pled guilty to planning to assassinate the President seem like bad timing?

  71. Gary – I don’t mind honoring ALL who defend their countries, but I do have a problem when politically charged symbols are used and cause unnecessary divisions. Just dump the stupid symbol. No brainer!

  72. if there was no meaning behind it then no harm done they were just uneducated and to put words in there mouths is just stupid

  73. I’m not so sure if there’s malicious intent here. Yes, those are the runes employed as a symbolic device by the Nazi “Schutzstaffel”, the so-called “defense corps”. However, the official flag or banner had a black background, not a blue one.

    That having been said, these guys should be disciplined for, at the very least, sheer ignorance of what that symbols do relate to. They damned well should have known better.

  74. Idiots
    Rachel: what your thinking off is the Swastiska, the one with the four arms right. That wasnt the only sign of the Nazis.
    And aisha was 20, not 9. While there are hadith quoting she was young theres historical evidence. Muhammad made the hijra (pilgrimage to medina) and Aisha was only 10, he still wasnt married. Go through three years of feud between the pagans and muslims. Still not married. Go to when muhammad opens mekka and lets the muslims and pagans and christians and jews live together in peace cuz the pagans hated the monotheists. Still not married. And, how could Aisha be older than Fatima, who was 10 when her mother Khadija died. F is the daughter of Muhammad and his late first wife K. She was older than Fatima.
    Murderer, huh. Are you referring to the verses of the Quran that talk about cutting off the fingers of the disbelievers or fighting them till religion for God is left? 1. You aint that special. It wasnt talking about westerners. The west we have today didnt even exIst 1400 years ago. 2. Christians and Jews? Nope. In the Qura theyre called the people of the book, massehi, yahood, but not kufar. Those are pagans, the name was given to the arab pagans of mekka
    3. Thief? So in war if an army wins they dont take abandoned wealths with them? Those were the rules of battle back then. Annd speaking of rules of battle, would you like to hear Islam’s rule on war?

  75. Quran

  76. Sara Jean, you’re a bumbling idiot.

  77. @ Gary Ristaino: Sorry to hear your shipment of butthurt has come in, but that’s not our problem. So piss off.

  78. Given the educational levels in the US these days, chances are good that those soldiers didn’t recognize that symbol.

  79. Dear AAI, can you please ban this dim-witted cunt Rachel OKelley? We’re tired of listening to the kaka spewing from her poor excuse for a mind.

  80. Veterans have told me that some soldiers become morally confused in combat just because they are doing things that would be forbidden in peacetime.

    Some of these men may have said – hey, we’re out here killing people and you’re griping about pissing and logos?

    The taliban are bursting into houses and gunning down Afg. gov. officials and any innocents who happen to be present. I think the reason that most muslims here may gripe about the US army, but they don’t go join the Taliban, etc. because 1. they might get killed 2. they know that such groups are atrocious on a regular basis, not just incidentally.

    Hurrah for the chicken muslims of the West!

  81. @vitor, look again the peter king article is still there.

  82. Anon
    Oh so your a mind reader now?

    Lol you forgot about the thousands of Muslims who’ve joined the CIA FBI the US army and police force. Plus the Taliban is centered in Afghanistan right? 1. not all muslims are afghans 2. Muslims fled them cuz they know theyre wrong 3. Muslims are chickens? How?! Here lots of us fight for your safety, muslim medics and firefighters and police officers died on 9/11 saving people. You obviously havent seen what they do to people who fight back the Taliban. They get scared. Its psychological. They oppress people into thinking this gross excuse for authority is the right way to go, or God will punish them.

    And shut the fuck up, man. You really dont know anything. Just because you havent seens a muslim fighting a member of Taliban does not mean we dont oppose them. I come here like everyday ranting about how i hate Saudi Arabia and the Taliban and Iran but of course i must not matter since im just a muslim girl to you whos too busy fixing her head scarf instead of actually educating myself right? I doubt you went to a private college prep school for 9 years with the best education an American should get, along with religious education. I actually know what im doing. I actually met non muslims before, made friends with them. I doubt youve ever met a muslim let alone befriended one.

    Btw we dont even know if those dead afghans were a part of Taliban. Pammy said they were, but isnt she a dumbass and a liar?

  83. What I don’t like is that the theocrats are so horribly violent nobody can get up an opposition. It is a nihilistic violence.

    To make matters worse, some people are supporting them simply because they are muslim and presume to stand for “pure” religion.

    Afghan society is not strong enough to fight off these horribles. What a bloodbath when US leaves.

  84. Anon
    Look how i treated him and he just changes the subject so it makes me look like the psychotic one.

    I agree, Afghanistan isn’t strong enough. Why? Shiite and Sunnis fighting. The Hazaras (seperate, racial group of afghans much like the Tutsis of Rwanda) are being somewhat oppressed, oh yeah, and the years of war the US waged on them. Indeed, quite a bloodbath. The US also helped bring iraq to ruins. They should come to Palestine and finish us off for good to. The US didnt necessarily help. It just got in the way. Libya, Yemen, Egypt and Tunisia were able to liberate themselves without America’s help, though the US deluded itself into thinking it killed Gaddafi. No buddy, Libyan rebels did.
    They brought ruin. Thats why i dont want them touching Saudi Arabia. While i HATE the government, i know the army would only demolish everything in its path. Burn down Masjid Al Haram and the Kabaa, piss in the Zamzam (holy water) well, desecrate Muhammad’s grave, and basically murder and imprison thousands of innocent people. Islam has rules when it comes to war.
    1. Be not dishonest
    2. Do not decieve
    3. Do not kill women, children and elderly
    4. Do not set fire to datepalms (the palm trees)
    5. Do not slaughter animals except for food
    6. If you find monks praying in temples and monasteries, leave them be
    7. Do not deny your men their pay.
    8. Do not burn homes and schools….

    Armies of modern times have done all of the above. Who are the barbarians here?

  85. **too

  86. Your 8 rules there have been well shredded by the Taliban etc. Schoolgirls were a prime target during the Algerian horrors as well. Taliban holds children for ransom and kills them when parents can’t fork up the money.

    This is typical. At mention of horrors or problems going on, a muslim will bring up that such things are forbidden in Islam. Please handle the frightful reality, don’t retreat into muttering scripture.

    I’m not sure what the US should have done after 9/11. Before 9/11, Iraqis in the West were writing articles and appearing on TV cursing the atrocities done by Saddam. To hang about for 10 yrs is simply crazy, I assume it is making money for somebody.

    I’m still amazed that back in the 50s US replaced a democracy with a monarch, the shah. i suppose the shah’s reps were offering a good deal to US gov.

    Bush countermanded his generals, they told him to pop in, whack Saddam and sons, then get out.
    Something in the US law or constitution should be changed.

  87. Vitor bc there’s no such thing as moderate Muslims. There’s no Islam but radical Islam. The purpose of this page is to whitewash Islamofascist crimes while making themselves appear as victims.

  88. Imad, truth hurts, eh?

  89. Laura that ‘symbol” means scout snipers. The rock band KISS logo looks the very same way. Nobody says KISS has a Nazi logo

  90. @ Rachel OKelly: No, your stupidity hurts.

  91. @Vitor, i don’t why ur asking me about the choice of the admin. posting of articles. but the moderate muslims did help in catching this loon. and i quote US Attorney Joyce White Vance, who worked on the case, expressed “appreciation to the Muslim community of Birmingham, which was instrumental in helping law enforcement shut down this threat.”
    and just to let u know this problem is not specific to islam. i guess u didn’t know about this guy.
    http://articles.cnn.com/2011-11-18/us/us_white-house-shooting-profile_1_idaho-man-video-shot-video-pitch?_s=PM:US

  92. Imad, what makes me stupid? Stating facts that you dont like about PISSlam?

  93. About the fascist idealogy that persecutes females as well as any Non Muslim allover the globe?

  94. Innara, its called mental illness. The score is still thousands of terrorits acts attributed to Islam, vs a few attributed to other religions. Try harder, hon.

  95. oh is that what u have? i knew by reading ur comments u weren’t normal Rachel. and if u turn off faux news u will know whats going on in ur backyard.

  96. rachel please gtfo this page. if we want to be tortured by rightwing invective being spewed from corn-fed idiots such as yourself, we’d just turn on the tv.

  97. Innara who cares what goes on? It doesn’t come close to the crap going on in the middle east. Nice dodge, though.

  98. Muslim mass genocide of non Muslims occur daily, and all you have is some nut who thinks he’s Jesus? I’m lmfao. Try harder sweetie.

  99. Becuase rachel knows eerything, shes god. No there are moderate muslims. Denying that would be denying my existence, innaras, imads, lupe fiascos, rami nashashibi, remy kanaze, carol danielson, ahmed rehab, amr khaleds existence. Those arent the only ones either.

    I read about the formation of the Taliban. At first, it was a group of afghans (nonmuslim and muslim) who fought back the soviets taking control of afghanistan. So the afghans thougt they were good, started calling them warriors of god blah blah blah. Then the problems came. The power and money wentto their heads. Delusion. They became much like the Nazis, but instead of hurting Jews they hurt Hazaras, nonmuslims and muslims, basically everything.

    I agree. American needs to stop being a nosy bitch. Its responsible for deaths of American and Iraqis, Afghans, and of course, Palestinians. The tax dollars have to go somewhere you know. Not to our childrens futures, or fighting breast cancer, or cleaning up the deadly oils and pollutants in our water. Were strictly gonna give itto a bunch of zionists whose ass we kiss all thetime. And ok i know suddam wasnt great. He sucked big time. Everyone, including Iraqis were calling for his blood. But now that the Armies are finally comig home, maybe we can grow positively and work for peace. Someone just needs to tell king abdulla and the irani government to go die already.

    Yes. America needs to change it up.

  100. i think muslim societies have an interior spiral similar to communism. Communism starts a paranoid spiral – we must kill all spies and traitors, everyone who isn’t thinking according to our program.

    Muslims set up a theocratic spiral – a muslim inquisition, like the old Spanish one. We must kill all non conformists, kill the other…

    Both systems cannabilize themselves in the search for orthodoxy.

  101. turn off the faux news and take off ur blindfolds. and u might see the other side of things. oh and drop the hypocrisy.

  102. turn off the faux news and take off ur blindfolds. and u might see the other side of things. oh and drop the hypocrisy.

  103. Paul, dont expect any sympathy. See how, when you mention the mass genocide of Christians it gets ignored? Nobody responded to your post.

  106. paul? i guess ur mental illness is coming through rachel. and since we are talking about mass genocide, want to talk about the 8000 dead Bosnians?

  107. paul? i guess ur mental illness is coming through rachel. and since we are talking about mass genocide, want to talk about the 8000 dead Bosnians?

  108. paul? i guess ur mental illness is coming through rachel. and since we are talking about mass genocide, want to talk about the 8000 dead Bosnians?

  109. Innara, it is the muslims who have the rep of ethnic cleansers in this world.

  110. Anon
    So the hutus were ignored, the Nazis were until finally years laterthey were brought to justice, the europeans who exterminated the native americans. Sure, lol, we have the rep. I know its bad overseas, but my religion is SUPPOSED to teach it. If people cant learn, is it the rest of the muslims faults? We set up worsshops, we hold interfaith dinners, etc dont you ger it we arent going to act likethem and blow up stuff and go crazy. You want us to stop? Stop the bad people? Sure just stop blaming us for what they do. Stop waging war on us, stop throwing us into places like gitmo.

    Can you not call them muslims? Mashan rabek(for the love of God) man you know they arent good muslims and their crazy bastards. Stop blaming us for it like its enough we have to here our teachers, co workers, students and neighbors call us out for it. We watch the news. We get it. What else do you want? Theres not some kinda switch or secret word thing anon. Violence? Were not gonna succumb to that. Wed rather be good muslims not barbarians, were trying to fight them with words and peace. Hm. Oh i get it. You just want us all dead. We can kill each other and you burn the remains or something. Get lost. Like please

  111. Btw
    * supposed to teach peace

  112. Too many typos: workshop get it blah blah you know what i mean

  113. Rachel is a neanderthal. What do you expect from a loser that worships a dead jew from 2000 years ago whos mother was a whore according to the talmud lol.

  114. Rachel is a retarded cross worshipper. Shes pissed off that most americans wipe their asses with the bible and could care less about some dead jew. She actually wants america to become like the taliban in afghanistan she wants to go back to a premitive way of life like all jesus freaks do.

    You know thats not the way to speak about Christians and Jesus. We also believve in the “dead jew” remember? Oh yea, and he also was brought up to heaven to come back for the good people. Is Rachel being stupid and bigoted? Yes. Is she misinformed? Duh. But is it Islamic to diss Jesus and the beliefs of Christians? No. Muhammad tried to find similarities between us and them. Have you ever taken a look at the Quran?

    Who were Isa and Mariam? Jesus and Mary. We believe like them. It’s sad that you would go as far as dissing one of our own messengers just to make a point.

  116. 19.(The angel) said: “I am only a Messenger from your Lord, (to announce) to you the gift of a righteous son.”

    20.She said: “How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste?”

    21.He said: “So (it will be), your Lord said: ‘That is easy for Me (Allâh): And (We wish) to appoint him as a sign to mankind and a mercy from Us (Allâh), and it is a matter (already) decreed, (by Allâh).’ ”

    22.So she conceived him[], and she withdrew with him to a far place (i.e. Bethlehem valley about 4-6 miles from Jerusalem).

    23. And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a date-palm. She said: “Would that I had died before this, and had been fogotten and out of sight

    24.Then [the babe 'Isa (Jesus) or Jibreel (Gabriel)] cried unto her from below her, saying: “Grieve not! Your Lord has provided a water stream under you

    25.”And shake the trunk of date-palm towards you, it will let fall fresh ripe-dates upon you.”

    26.”So eat and drink and be glad, and if you see any human being, say: ‘Verily! I have vowed a fast unto the Most Beneficent (Allâh) so I shall not speak to any human being this day.’”

    27.Then she brought him (the baby) to her people, carrying him. They said: “O Mary! Indeed you have brought a thing Fariya (an unheard mighty thing).

    28.”O sister (i.e. the like) of Hârûn (Aaron) [not the brother of Mûsa (Moses), but he was another pious man at the time of Maryam (Mary)]! Your father was not a man who used to commit adultery, nor your mother was an unchaste woman.”

    30.”He ['Isa (Jesus)] said: Verily! I am a slave of Allâh, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet;[]“

  117. Surat Mariam (mother of Jesus! )

  118. It shows that even some muslims dont know their religion. Very very sad

  119. SS stands for Scout Sniper, it is the same font used by the Rock Band KISS, are they Nazi’s too?

    I had the pleasure to work with scout snipers over my 20 years as a Marine, they are the finest group of elite warriors in the world. Two thirds of the ones I worked with were not even Caucasian! They have a right to be proud of that title and the distinction they have earned. Unfortunately, the connection will always be made to the Nazi SS symbology. Too bad, but not the end of the world.

    The good news is, these young men will keep doing their job better than anyone in the world, stacking bodies like firewood, whether you like or respect them or not.

    Semper Fi Devil Dogs!

  120. Hello
    Right, that photo remember us to the Nazi eagle. but you should attend a point : it’s very hard to imagine that soldiers located in a country like Afghanistan where there is the lowest facilities and moods conditions occurs that we don`t know. thing at there is very complicated. another point is a question:
    If you have 12 soldiers and a flag of their country. what is the best pose for photography?!
    i`m From Iran and i fight for freedom. i respect these soldiers , Afghanistan is a real hell . and they choose this way for their country. they Are legend.

  121. The Marines are there to rain pain and death upon America’s enemies. They mistakenly showed a flag that has a historically negative connotation and they will be disciplined. But make no mistake: there was no “SS” flag, and most of these poor kids don’t happen to know the symbols of WW II. They are too busy risking their lives every day to destroy the most evil group of terrorists on earth ….and you guys get your panties in a know about this? When the Marines appear in your county, it is because you are an evil shithead and it’s time for the good guys to kill you. If they happen to fly a flag that you object to, fuck you.

  122. Its for scout snipers, get it SS not everything is racist. It could stand for shit storm and you idiots would be bitching. There’s no color in the corps there is only light green and dark green. They do however make pink mist of their enemies.

  123. [...] White recom Marines pose with "nazi symbol" Jewish organizations are outraged and what punishment US Marines Pose with Nazi Symbol: To Them All Afghans are [...]

  124. And what if thats what they say, go read the quran its far more racsist than these patriots.

  125. Yeah. SIEG HEIL brothers, SIEG HEIL

  126. You lib-tards are some of the most superficial people on this planet. All of you too lazy to defend anything, much less this sorry country of ours.

  127. The symbol is for Scout Snipers. Rabbi Marvin is insulting the USMC for his association of that group with Nazis.

    Rabbi Marvin Heir should be ashamed of himself. Everything he sees is Nazi.

    Please shut-up Rabbi!

  128. I think these fine Marines need to occupy their spare time reading (when not out killing) and two suggestions are listed below. Both are just the kind of action-packed novels a US Marine can enjoy, spiced with a little thoughtful ideas.

    Sincerely,

  129. That has no relation to the Nazi’s… It’s meant to be scout snipers. As you can see, these Marines are scout snipers. SS. Clearly everyone believes the media. A double lighting bolt isn’t always “OMG NAZI US MARINES GUIS GUIS SO EVIL”
