Christian and or Jewish White Lily

One more proof that Uri Ofir's Theory about the Jewish origin of the Star of David is not famous as it should be is that the WHITE LILY (that was used, according to his theory, as a model for the Star of David shaped candle holder in the Menorah in the Tabernacle right after the Exodus, and which is the symbol of Israel) isn't regarded by the Jewish world as sacred as it is regarded by the Christian world.
That's why Dr. Michelle Zakai of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beersheba is working with her team on speeding up the flowering of the Lilium Candidum, naturally flowering in May, so that it could be sold to Christians before Easter, at the end of March.

Vans Shoes

The ADL issued a statement on Monday, May 08, 2006 that they checked out the e-mails-rumor that the makers of the Vans Shoes are anti-Jewish (because the star of David pattern is “stepped upon”) and found out that the rumor was not true; The whole thing started because Vans skateboarding shoes come with a pattern resembling a Star of David on their bottom part.

Jesus' Grave in Shingo Japan

There is a Star of David on a grave in Japan in which according to Japanese local legend, Jesus had been buried.
Jesus, thus tells the legend, came to Japan when he was 21 years old, during the reign of the 11th emperor, Suinin; he studied the Japanese language and stayed for 11 years. Then he returned to Judea and was condemned to death. Jesus succeeded to escape but his brother Isukiri was nailed to the cross and died instead of him. Jesus returned to Japan, married Miyuko, had three daughters, died 106 years old and was buried in Shingo village.
Sajiro Sawaguchi, whose family owns the cemetery, claims to be a direct descendant of Jesus. Sawaguchi's family crest is taken from the Star of David. Ancient kimonos made in the area have a Star of David on them.
