Anti Israeli Cartoons From The Summer Of 2006

Tom Gross published on his website Anti-Israeli cartoons from the summer of 2006. Stars of David appear on some of these cartoons:

Hou Xiao Qiang, China (July 18, 2006):
Shows a white dove of peace being crucified on the Star of David.

Morhaf Youssef Syria (August 16, 2006):
Draws a grotesque parallel between the Jewish holy sign the Star of David, and the Nazi swastika, the symbol under which Jewish adults, children and babies were, in living memory, tortured and gassed.

The Guardian, Martin Rowson (July 19, 2006):
Stars of David are being used as knuckle dusters on a bloody fist to both punch a young boy and to crush George Bush, the American president.

Jaroslaw Wojtasinski, Poland (August 5, 2006):
Suggests that Israelis are the enemies of peace and that the Star of David is the symbol of trigger-happy military oppression.

Non-Indian Star in India

Non-Indian hexagram in IndiaPhoto of a wooden Christian six-pointed star surrounding a cross is courtesy of "monhsi" from Flickr who shot it at Chennai, India, Tamil Nadu, St. Mary's Church.
St. Mary's Church is located inside the Fort St. George. It was built in 1680 and is the oldest Anglican church outside England. Chennai (Madras) is the largest city in south India.
I found this splendid photo while I was looking for the keywords Star of David in India, but it seems that not all six-pointed stars in India are Indian.

Jewish Environmentalists

The Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life (COEJL) created fluorescent light bulbs with a green Magen David, called "A Light Among Nations."
