The Ministry of National Defense (MND) yesterday apologized for posting a photograph showing students wearing Nazi uniforms.
The Nazi uniforms were used during a MND-organized summer camp on its official website, a move that angered local Israelis.
In an emergency press conference held in the ministry yesterday afternoon, military spokesman Lo Shao-ho made an official apology over the incident to the public.
Lo said he had contacted the three students in question, and they all expressed regret for wearing the Nazi uniforms while attending the summer camp held on Monday at Army Armor School in Hsinchu County.
“They said they wore the uniforms for fun as they are all military fans,” said Lo, adding that they didn’t mean to offend anyone and that they are sorry for causing the stir.
He also added that the ministry will ask its press officers to be more careful in the future when choosing photographs.
To put on a Nazi uniform, is not like wearing a Batman t-shirt.
But some careless people do not see the difference.
One of them is prince Harry of England.
If is not the lack of education, that has made this royal do such a foolish thing.
It is rather spiritual blindness.
