The Daily Mail website reports today (June 25, 2012) that beachgoers were stunned Saturday (June 23) when a plane flew over Long Beach Island and along the New Jersey Shore, towing a Nazi flag.
On the sign was written the word "Swastika," showing the anti-Semitic symbol intertwined with the Hebrew Star of David.
It was spotted as far north as Manhattan and prompted several calls from concerned viewers to the Long Beach Township Police Department.
The plane was sponsored by the Raelian Movement, which preaches that earth life was scientifically created by the Elohim -- a species of extraterrestrial beings. The movement's official symbol features a swastika intertwined with the Hebrew Star of David, as seen by the people on the beach.
