Jeff Zolitor wrote that lately he found Stars of David in two unexpected places: at a bazaar in Tijuana, Mexico, and at Agra Fort in India. In both cases locals told him they were just ornaments. Moreover, what about the four swastikas that surround it- are they too just ornaments?

With Lions

i shot it because my girlfriend and i were celebrating a little hanukkah in our little apartment and i added photography to the nightly ritual. this built up into something of a time lapse animation

What I (zeevveez) see in this photo is two lions holding a Star of David. Today the lion is the symbol of Jerusalem municipality, but it was the symbol of Judea tribe, whose name is the source of the name Jew.
