Hate is Trending on Twitter

Trending swastikas on Twitter have Jewish communities in the U.S. and Israel, and decent human beings everywhere, outraged. According to The Times of Israel, the hashtag “#卐卐卐” yielded more than 63,500 tweets on Sunday alone.

Most the tweets are stupid wordplay, many copy and pasted repeats, but nonetheless horribly offensive.

Jewish groups told The Times of Israel they were outraged by the phenomenon, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center said it would seek to have the symbol barred from Twitter.

See some of the tactless tweets below, and read more here.

What do you think of the “trend”? Is it harmless or hateful? Let us know in the comments below.

    The nazi and Hitler was a lesson for the jews but the all missed it. Hitler used the jews’ own creed of chosen people sent to conquer the world and kill or enslave all other races. Why the jewish faith, which was punished for following this false God’s creed by it’s own creed used against it, doesn’t see this is beyond me and beyond intelligence. shalom

    Accoring to Deuteronomy 20 11 and so on, how could any true person of God, not jewish, be anything but Anti-semitic? I mean deuteronomy is about deceit and conquest enslaving the heathens the jews once were under pharoah? Did the jews exodus the pyramid scheme to become the new pharoahs? It would appear so according to deuteronomy. Have you read it? Don’t you see that’s exactly what the Muslims took from the old testament too? that’s why these groups fight so, because they are exactly alike. True? shalom

    The sign might be trending a lot because it has been applied to radical Islam and is being posted everywhere concerning the anti-Islamic sites.Additionally,there is probably robo-tweeting

      There are many of us who see the American Tea-Party as the US Taliban and the sign is being applied to them also.But mostly it is being applied to identifying the evil within Islam.

    There are and always will be small minded people in this world. Everybody, of any nationality, no matter what their politics are, knows, that the holocaust transpired, also when and where. There have been ignorant, small minded, hate mongers, trying to glorify this horiffic act ever since it transpired. These people are led and inspired by satan and will be active until the messiah puts his feet on the Mount of Olives. God has a place for them, right along with the devil and his angels and no matter what you think, or agree with or disagree with. Hell is very real, very much in existence and very permanent. If one studies the word of God, it is very dangerous to play games like this with God’s people, because he has clearly stated that he will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. I can find no place where he has ever changed his mind, because he has never been wrong in the first place, so this being the case, I would have to feel that making sick jokes like this, is too close to cursing his people and since he makes the rain to fall on the righteous and the wicked, I am sure that by the same token, that they will be well rewarded for their efforts.

    That symbol of hatred and unrestricted violence sends a chill down my spine every time I see it. I’ve made a particular study of Nazi Germany, World War II, etc., most of my life. Now I know why….

    These warmongers are not too smart. They truly do not remember what the nazi’s did to any and all who crossed them. If they continue in this path, what they sew they will reap !!!

    In the last days the Lord says that evil will grow, people will trade evil for good and good for evil. When we have people so filled with hatred, anger and rage this is what you get. Pure EVIL !!!

      I agree, but of course evil can never be ‘pure’! It seems the only word in English which serves to indicate the unadulterated state of the evil in question, but there’s got to be another way!

Rabbi's Commentary
Rejoicing in God’s Word

The festive Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah ends and begins the annual cycle of Torah readings in synagogue. It is God’s Word that offers comfort and hope to Jews and Christians alike, reminding us of His permanent presence in our constantly changing world.
