|The Nazi Betel Nut Stand – He Ping W. Road
living in Taipei for ten years, I have been faced with ignorance regarding
Nazi slogans, students doing Third Reich salutes, as well as Nazi swastikas
being worn as decorations on clothing items. As a Jewish American, I have
found this to be very upsetting and unnerving.
Everyday, for many years, I walk by a shop in my neighbor hood with two very
large Nazi flags hanging up as so called “decorations.” The owner of the
shop didn’t seem to want to discuss his reasons for hanging up such a symbol
of past hate.
The Nazi Betel Nut Stand – He Ping W. Road Sec. 3, No.179

I hope that someone local Taiwanese could stop by and request that the owner
remove these flags. They really do embarrass Taiwan as a whole.
I have plans to call the Israeli trade office in Taipei to discuss this
issue. If anyone else would care to do so, here is the contact info:
