Something off with Malaysian airlines

Wasting time before getting on an international flight. What can you really do? Not much except check out the book store in the departure lounge really.

So there I was at KLIA and I found, the International Jew by Henry Ford – in both condensed and full versions. This is a collection of anti-Jewish propaganda published in Henry’s hey day of the Model T Ford, that I’ve never really seen. Apparently Hitler did though. Apparently he took some inspiration from these little memoirs of the man from Michigan.

While I wasn’t at all surprised to find such a publication in Malaysia (you should see the books about Malaysia in Singapore’s Changi airport), I kinda freaked out when I thought I subliminally saw a swastika during my in-flight movie on Malaysian airlines. So I stared at the seat in front of me ’till I saw something in the pattern. Lo and behold, there were loads of them (pic above is tilted right to it’s easier to see them). Very bizarre.

Look I am not suggesting Malaysian Airlines are Jew haters or anything, but this really weirded me out. Especially on a long haul international flight. So if you’re an airline interior decorator, just remember to check for swastikas in your patterns before deploying them throughout your fleet! Luckily, they ain’t exactly partnered with El Al Airlines.

    ‘It remains widely used in Indian religions, specifically in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, primarily as a tantric symbol to evoke ‘shakti’ or the sacred symbol of auspiciousness. The swastika is also a Chinese character used in East Asia representing eternity and Buddhism.’

    Educate yourself 🙂
