We are on opposite sides of this debate, But I respect you and your service to this country.
But this Boggles me, Your undying Love for Israel, from the angle of a Military Man.
"No man left behind" "Once a Marine, always a Marine"
Explain this slaughter, then explain how you can believe the Motto's of the Marines?

the point is that this salut does not mean they are nazis - this is just ridiculous...
its just a military salut....
Iran's president has shot to the forefront of Holocaust denial in recent days, but it may seem more like self-denial: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad need only look to his country's Hitler-era past to discover that Iran and Iranians were connected to the Holocaust and the Nazi regime, as was the larger Arab and Islamic world under the leadership of the mufti of Jerusalem.
Iran's links to the Third Reich began during the pre-World War II years when it welcomed Gestapo agents and other operatives to Tehran, allowing them to use it as a Middle East base for agitation against the British and the region's Jews.
Key among these Gestapo men was Fritz Grobba, Berlin's envoy to the Middle East, and often called "the German Lawrence" because he promised a Pan-Arab state stretching from Casablanca to Tehran.
Don’t focus just on the swastika (or the Marine’s use of SS runes), please address the other connections I made. Justify the attack of US troops while Iran gets a free pass. I’ll wait….

You haven't disproved anything.
Are you trying to say that the connection between US troops and Nazis is stronger than Iran's connection with Nazis?

Dont you read your history.
Or are you just Ignorant to the fact that your post WW2 America is built by the Nazi's and their way of life.
You Americans stole all the Nazi's you wanted from germany at the end of WW2 to build the modern America.
Nazism held a genuine appeal for the Arab populace, who were attracted to its messages of rejection of democracy, recovery of past military glory and Jew-hating. In 1935, Reza Shah, the ruler of Persia, changed the country's name from Persia to Iran to reflect that they, like the Nazis, were Aryans. A popular Arab song during the war went, "Allah in heaven, Hitler on earth."
The historic Nazi connection to today's Islamic terrorism is Haj Amin al-Husseini, the grand Mufti of Jerusalem. He became a Nazi agent after meeting Adolf Eichmann, an architect of the Holocaust, in Palestine in 1937, and with Nazi funds organized the Arab Revolt of 1936-39 which led to the British closing Palestine to Jewish immigration. This facilitated the "Final Solution" by closing off the avenue of refuge. In 1941, the mufti orchestrated a short-lived, Nazi-backed generals' coup in Iraq. One of the participants in that coup, Gen. Khayrallah Tulfah, was Saddam Hussein's uncle and mentor.

I agree with the OPer!
Think about it, how many times have you heard "passive vrauchen"? None? Are you sure, "passive smoke" is a good translation.
Still no? How about "secondhand smoke"? Oh yeah, you know that one!
So I agree with the OPer, everyone is up-in-arms over this little flag. Then right after they get done hating on Nazis, they goosestep outside to spread some Nazi propeganda.
So yeah, kinda silly getting mad at a flag. Especially when most of us decided we were Nazis long ago.
