In some Asian iconography, this auspicious symbol denotes "noble." (TBS)

Swastikas are also found in ancient Greek culture, roots of the West (Minghui.org).
Maybe vandals were saying "all's well"?
In Buddhism, the swastika (Sanskrit svastika, "all is well") is a cross with four arms of equal length, with the ends of each arm bent at a right angle. Sometimes dots are added between each arm.
Common in India, the swastika is an ancient symbol that is in fact found worldwide. It can be seen in the art of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Celts, Native Americans, and Persians as well as Buddhists, Hindus (based on Vedic Brahminism), and Jains.
The swastika's Indian name comes the Sanskrit word svasti, which means "good fortune, luck, and well being."
In ancient Vedic Brahmanism and modern Hinduism, the right-hand (clockwise) swastika is a symbol of the sun and the god Vishnu, while the left-hand (counterclockwise) swastika represents Kali and magic.

The Buddhist swastika is almost always clockwise, while the swastika adopted by the Nazis (many of whom had occult interests) is counterclockwise. In Buddhism, the swastika signifies... More

German Propaganda Minister Goebbels and other Nazis went to the mysterious East in search of occult artifacts, lore, and powers, including the legend of the "world ruler" (chakravartin), the thousand-spoke Wheel of Dharma that assists in ruling (possibly symbolic of a flying machine or vimana), and the arya ("noble") supermen or women or devas. So when a swastika is seen on an Asian statue, it is often to symbolize that the figure is spiritually enlightened/awakened. NOTE: The real world ruler likely resides in Agartha (Inner Earth, Aztlan, Shambhala, Shangri-La).

Goebbels brought back a whole cloth legend of an all-powerful leader, like the figure of Maitreya ("Messiah"?), and Adolf Hitler was told to not be seen eating in public, it was said he was a vegetarian and in touch with higher spiritual powers and entities, and so on. That Nazism shares these superficial features with Buddhism is no accident; they were purposely misappropriated by Goebbels, Goering, and other top Nazis. The Theosophical Society led by Russian mystic Madame Blavatsky shared a lot of Eastern mysticism with the West.
Hey, you can't compare the State of Israel to Nazis visiting a holocaust on modern Palestinians in Palestine. It's verboten! Swastikas denounced at rally (cija.ca).
