It remind us of the relevancy of the Haggadah which says that In every generation there are those who try to destroy us but G-d saves us from their hands.

Arab-Israeli Peace Card

Picture of a Jewish star on top of a Christmass tree is courtesy of "w.wabbit" who published it on Flickr. It is a Blessing of Peace in Hebrew and in Arabic. The green tree looks like a Christmass tree so in fact the blessing is about peace between Arabs, Israelis and Christians. The six-pointed star is used by Christians Muslims and Jews, and it is the fittest symbol of their future coexistence.

Ulstar Flag

Hexagram appers on the Northern Ireland Ulster Flag, which is based upon the St. George’s Cross. St. George is the Patron Saint of England, and his cross is on the national English flag. The Ulster Flag of Northern Ireland is considered Loyalist because of the Crown.
There is a dispute as to the meaning of the star, with some maintaining it is the Star of David, and others say it represents the six counties that make up Northern Ireland.
