"Allahu Ackbar" on second paragraphEdit

Does anyone else see the "Allahu Ackbar" right at the start of the article or am I going crazy? I tried to go to edit but it's not where it is in the article.

It was edited out already - apparent vandalism. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 15:09, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

wrong claimEdit

"The first attested use of the word swastika in a European text is found in 1871 with the publications of Heinrich Schliemann" (with citations that I haven't examined). As commonly with such claims, a quick visit to Google Books uncovers several much earlier examples. I think this reference to Schliemann should be simply removed.

If you have legitimate counter-examples, I agree that you should remove it. Beyond My Ken (talk) 20:15, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
