Dr. Israel Shahak And The Jesuits in Vienna

Famous Jewish Anti-Zionist Dr. Israel Shahak (1933 - 2001) wrote an “original” article titled Where Does the Star of David Come from? It’s a pity he didn’t specify his resources, but I suspect he fabricated them, as well as other original “facts”, in order to win his cases. Dr. Israel Shahak claiimed that  the Catholic Order of the Jesuits selected the Star of David as a Jewish symbol in the year 1648 after Prague was rescued from the Swedish army. German Emperor Ferdinand III decided to give honor flags and other decorations to all the defenders, included the Jewsish unit, but no one in Vienna knew what kind of symbol to put on the flag, until the scholarly Jesuits in Vienna suggested that King David must have had a shield in the shape of the six-pointed star.
