Ah, I see now.

Easy, the Slavs are supposed to be the true Aryans, and all the rest (Germanic peoples included) not, with the Jews of course being the least Aryan and thus, well, you know what thus. Thus the swastika is considered a dumbed-down version of the 'true Slavic swastika', the 12-spiked sun wheel (dunno how much basis in actual archaeology this one has). Also they tend to mention Sanskrit words similar to Russian ones with great aplomb (my question 'so what?', characteristucally, tends to go unanswered) Pavel -- Pavel Iosad Nid byd, byd heb wybodaeth --Welsh saying
