How did the Jews steal the Hexagram; “Star of Ishtar”?

The Hexagram, The six-pointed star, known among archaeologists as the Star of Ishtar, was used first as a symbol of worship for the Sumerians and then the Babylonians and was found in most of the civilizations that followed…

It existed in the Ugarit civilization of the Canaanites and Phoenicians,who had it as a symbol of “the morning star or Venus”, and also in the Aramean and the Egyptian civilizations…

The Hexagram was also present in many ancient civilizations for thousands of years before the Jews of the middle Ages made it the star of the legendary mythical Jewish hero called King David (Star of David)!!

For our history, it is one of the most famous philosophical and spiritual symbols of the Syrian heritage. The hexagram is composed of two crossed triangles.The triangle with its base at the top and its peak or (head) downward represents the divine quest to manifest itself inhuman beings. The triangle with its base at the bottom and its peak upwards represents the human quest for the annihilation in the divine, and their intersection represents the Savior!

This hexagram appears in many houses, churches and mosques in Old Damascus,because it has an elegant artistic and philosophical presence in the Syrian civilization before Arab and Islam and then in the Arabic and Islamic inscriptions, and it was called (the star of wisdom) for its profound philosophical and spiritual implications.

In the Ugarit civilization, the triangle whose head is downward symbolizes femininity and the triangle whose head is upward symbolizes masculinity and the intertwining of the triangles gives birth to life…

When the Jews left Babylon, they were very influenced by the Babylonian civilization and worship and they adopted a lot of them, this hexagram of Ishtar the symbol of fertility, life and wisdom is the greatest example of this… In the current era, the Zionists stole everything from us… Even falafel is sold in Europe today as a “Jewish heritage” and they attributed the Syrian Arak to themselves and made itIsrael’s national alcoholicbeverage and call it “Araq”…

Therefore, today we have to fight the heresies and the Zionist movement and what it advocates and practices. however, we must not fight this sacred symbol, because if we did, we would destroy our entire heritage and would be unfair to our beautiful city Damascus, in which we can find this symbolon all its folkloric inscriptions, glass, wood, and copper crafts, and its historical and religious buildings everywhere we go.
