How did the “Star of David” become the state of Israel’s symbol?
When I was a young boy, I would doodle the “Star of David” (or the Magen David; meaning literally the “Shield of David” as if??!), on just about everything I could. I had the ignorance of a young child indeed, believing that this symbol was something that perhaps King David himself donned somewhere within his domain, perhaps on the city gate walls, etc. etc.
Ignorance is the correct word for my past understanding. For the Star of “David” was definetly not used by David the slayer of Goliath!;
The Shield of David is not mentioned in ancient rabbinic literature. Notably, not a single archaeological proof exists concerning the use of this symbol in the Land of Israel during BCE. Scientists say that it probably was not a widely recognized symbol in the Israel of the Second Temple era.
I believe the hexagram symbol has its origins far back (ancient babylon & further), some historians believe Solomon allowed for use of this "sorcerer's symbol", during his reign as king of Israel:
Again William F. Dankenbring informs us in regards to this theory;
The so-called "Star of David" is essentially a "hexagram," nothing more, nothing less. There is no Biblical or Jewish evidence that traces this ancient occult symbol with king David of Israel. However, there is evidence that it was used by king Solomon, after he turned to pagan gods and the occult, late in his life, causing God to become very angry with him .
So we can see it does not take Sherlock Holmes to deduce that King David did NOT use the modern symbol called the “Star of David”.
The question still remains,... how did this symbol become Israel’s prime mark?
The adoptation of the "Star of David", by the State of Israel has its most immediate influence coming from that old viper; Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
The Rothschild family crest was a red shield and a hexagram on the shield;
ROTHSCHILD FAMILY CREST: HEXAGRAM
The Bauer name still lives on today. However, one of them, Mayer Amschel Bauer, changed his branch of the family to match the Rothschild family crest (Red Shield).
Mayer Amschel Bauer was a well-off coin trader in Frankfurt. A red hexagram was hung in front of the family house.
This offers us a view into the Rothschild occultist tendencies. The hexagram is also known as the Seal of Solomon, the Magen David, or the Star of David. It was a symbol of Moloch and Astoreth and was used in the ancient Mystery Religions. Saturn, which has been known to represent Satan was also represented by the hexagram.
ROTHSCHILD FAMILY CREST: RE-NAMING THE BAUER’S
Because the six-pointed star was so important to Mayer Amschel Bauer, he decided to change his name to Rothschild (Rot – shild means Red Shield in German). His focus was to actually associate his family with occultism and Saturn (Astoreth worship). The Astor family is another influential Illuminati family.
I hope this peaks some of the curious among you to investigate the roots of the “Star of David” or the “Magen David”, uncovering the truth behind its’ history.
