HERE IS A SUMMARY OF information on the HEXAGRAM, or six-pointed star and elements which bear relationship to our subject…
The star was mentioned and condemned by the God of Israel in Amos 5:26 and it was called by Him, `the star of your god, Moloch’ or otherwise called `Chiun’. Reference to Amos 5:26 and the Israelites having it in the wilderness was also made in Acts 7:43. Here it was called the Star of Remphan. All these names refer to the `god’ Saturn.
The foregoing verifies that it was therefore in existence long before the time of Solomon. He took this symbol upon himself when he went into idolatry, and it became known as the `Seal of Solomon’ in Arabic magic and witchcraft.
There was no usage of it in Jewish circles until the 17th century when the cabalist, Isaac Luria, introduced it in Germany.
Mayer Amschel Bauer then used it in Germany to identify his address, consequently changing his family name to Rothschild, meaning `Red Shield’, and depicting the red hexagram hanging on his door. He later incorporated it into his family coat of arms.
The six-pointed star or hexagram became the insignia of Zionism.
Hitler rose to power, using it as a badge of shame, forcing all Jews to wear it during the Nazi regime.
It arrived at the Knesset of the newly formed State of Israel.
It became the logo of the Jewish `Red Cross’ called the Magen David Adom.
It became the centerpiece on the flag of Israel.
Surreptitiously, it has become the international symbol of the Jewish people and saturates the world as the Jewish Star.
