Without the Star of David the whole point could have been lost. The designer of this sticker says: we (Israelis, represented by our national emblem) shall overcome!

Yelena Potkov - American Influence

magen-david-AmericanSuggestions to change Israel’s emblem that were designed in 2001 by first and second year students in Wizo Design Academy in Haifa guided by Hayim Shtayer and Terry Schreuer; courtesy of Hayim Shtayer.

It seems that Yelena Potkov is troubled because American influence is so dominant in Israel that it is hard to find what is originally Israeli. The proportions are more or less as shown on this suggestion: four parts American ONE part (represented by the Star of David) Israeli.
