Tramping Upon the Israeli Flag

How many people tramping upon the Israeli flag and consequently on the Star of David would know that it is a symbol revered not only by the Jews but by the Muslims as well? Both King Solomon and King David have been given the status of Prophets in Islam from whom this symbol derives its origin. See this and this. In any case this is a pretty ridiculous form of protest but then what else is Ahmed Bukhari known for?
Note: Ahmed Bukhari is the Muslim cleric of New Delhi's main mosque.

I've also seen Yemeni Korans at 300+ years old that have the same six-pointed star to separate the verses.

The Magic Door
