Did you know that before the Nazi era the star on the Moroccan flag was the David Star? Probably not!
Moroccan Jews (Arabic: اليهود المغاربة, Hebrew : יהדות מרוקו) are the Jews who live or lived in the area of North Africa known as Morocco. The first Jews migrated to this area after the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem and settled among the Berbers. They were later met by a second wave of migration from the Iberian peninsula in the period immediately preceding and following the 1492 Alhambra Decree, when the Jews were expelled from kingdoms of Spain and Portugal. This second immigration wave deeply modified Moroccan jewry, who largely embraced the Andalusian Sephardic liturgy, making the Moroccan Jews switch to a mostly Sephardic identity.
At its peak in the 1940s, Morocco’s Jewish population exceeded 250,000. Today, there is a vibrant community in Morocco which counts approximately 2,000-2,500 Jews, while in Israel they constitute the second-largest Jewish community (approximately 1 million), but they constitute only the third largest Moroccan diaspora after France and Spain. Moroccan Jews and their descendants can now be found primarily in France, Spain, Israel, Canada, the United States and Venezuela.
The Nazi’s burned many books and with the help of all Western Nations have worked very hard in the last century in-order to turn the Muslims against the Jews.
But some proof still remains:
Here is a Larousse French Dictionary/Encyclopedia from 1934, have a look at the flag of Palestine too:
See also the flag chart from Nouveau Petit Larousse Illustré, 1924

This is an equivalent representation of the flag chart found in Nouveau Petit Larousse Illustré, 1924. Unlike the flags depicted here, the original chart shows them all at a 2:3 proportion and uses only 8 uniform shades (white, black, red, yellow, blue, green, orange and indigo). Some of the flags were obsolete in 1924; however they also appear in the 1935 edition of the dictionary.
But on in the 1939 Nazi era Larousse edition as shown in the previous article about the Palestine Flag in 1939 does not feature the Star of David but the current 5 pointed star.
On the Arabic Wikipedia Page of the Football Club Atletico Tetouan, Morocco. You can find this:
“Morocco flag in the seventeenth century, which symbolizes the top of the state were some of the slogans club formerly containing the Star of David , and see to it that the former flag of Morocco it contains a hexagonal star before it is replaced by an asterisk in the current five-year science early twentieth century.”
And a cover of a famous Magazine (football history in Spain) Historia del futbol Espanol that shows that the emblem of Club Atletico Tetouan contains Star of David.

More examples can be given but the question that remains is, what happened, why do Muslims today think Allah tells them to kill Jews?
Jews and Arabs were supposed to build a union in the Middle East 1 Jewish state and 1 Arab Caliphate, but Europe opposed!
“People less informed and less responsible than our leaders and yours, ignoring the need for cooperation of the Arabs and Zionists, have been trying to exploit the local difficulties that must necessarily arise in Palestine in the early stages of our movements. Some of them have, I am afraid, misrepresented your aims to the Arab peasantry, and our aims to the Jewish peasantry, with the result that interested parties have been able to make capital out of what they call our differences. ” – Faisal bin Hussein bin Ali al-Hashimi Son of the Sharif of Mecca
“For both the Arab and the Jewish peoples there are difficulties ahead — difficulties that challenge the united statesmanship of Arab and Jewish leaders. For it is no easy task to rebuild two great civilisations that have been suffering oppression and misrule for centuries. We each have our difficulties we shall work out as friends, friends who are animated by similar purposes, seeking a free and full development for the two neighbouring peoples. The Arabs and Jews are neighbours in territory; we cannot but live side by side as friends.” – Felix Frankfurter Zionist leader
Excerpt from the Faisal-Frankfurter correspondence of 1919
Current Islam is a different religion than Islam was until 100 years ago. The reason is that the western anti-Semites have changed the leaders of Islam. Modern anti-Semitism started with the destruction of Judea and the deportation of the Judeans (Jews) by the Roman Empire in the first century. Today’s anti-Semitism is still the same it does not come from the Arabs but from the West (Roman Empire). The anti-Semitism that comes from the Arabs is recent and has been created by the colonial powers (ex-Roman Empire). When people attacking Islam, when true Islam is not the problem, people are not attacking the issue but actually are willing or not fuelling the anti-Semitic propaganda in the Muslim world, because by telling Muslims that they are bad because their Quran says “to kill the Jews where you find them”, you are helping Muslims believe the big-lie.
The reason they started to believe in lies from anti-Semites and the result is described in the Quran itself:Ongoing hostilities against Israel may lead to the War of Gog and Magog, of which the Qur’an says:
“There is a ban upon a city (Jerusalem) that We have destroyed; they (the Jews) shall not return till when Gog and Magog are unloosed, and they slide down out of every slope, and nigh has drawn the true promise, and behold, the eyes of the unbelievers staring: ‘Alas for us! We were heedless of this; nay, we were evildoers’”.Qur’an, Sura Anbiyaa (“The Prophets”), 21:96-98 (Arberry translation, page 331) (standard numbering: 21:95-97)
Who or what prompts you to enlist in the hordes of Gog and Magog?In this context the Qur’an warns:
“Upon the day when their faces are turned about in the Fire they shall say, ‘Ah, would we had obeyed God and the Messenger!’ They shall say, ‘Our Lord, we obeyed our chiefs and great ones, and they led us astray from the way. Our Lord, give them chastisement twofold, and curse them with a mighty curse”.Qur’an, Sura Ahzab (“The Confederates”), 33:66 (Arberry translation, page 435) (standard numbering: 33:66-68)
The next verse admonishes:
“O believers, be not as those who hurt Moses, but God declared him quit of what they said, and he was high honored with God”. Qur’an, Sura Ahzab (“The Confederates”), 33:67 (Arberry translation, page 435) (standard numbering: 33:69)
A Hadith now often quoted in anti-Jewish context, has stones and trees saying: “O Muslim, there is a Jew behind me, come and slay him” [Proceedings from the Fourth Conference, page 122]. This is a sad prediction of what is happening now. Are Muslims supposed to take the words of stones and trees for commandments instead of the Word of Allah? Transforming their own hearts into stones?
The Qur’an says Muslims must not harm Jews:
“Dispute not with the People of the Book, save in a fairer manner, except for those of them that go wrong; and say: ‘We believe in what has been sent down to us, and what has been sent down to you, our God and your God are One, and to Him we have surrendered” [Qur’an, “The Spider”, chapter 29:45].
“Have you considered? If it be from God, and you disbelieve in it, and a witness from among the Children of Israel bears witness to its like, and believes, and you wax proud — God guides not the people of the evildoers” [Qur’an, “Sand Dunes”, chapter 46:8,9].
After Britain and France back stabbed the Arabs in WW1 the man they helped take control of Islam, by removing the authentic Islamic/Arab authority, joined Hitler during WW2 against the British French and Jews, and the nazi propaganda impacts Islam until this day. (while watching it please remember that with the Muslim Authorithy before him we had an agreement for a Homeland refuge for the Jews)
The Big Lie
By the time Nazism arose in Germany in the 1930s, anti-Semitism was nothing new — not by a long shot. The Jewish people had suffered a long history of prejudice and persecution. And although Nazis perpetuated centuries-old lies, this time those lies would have their most devastating effects. Like never before, anti-Semitism was manifested in a sweeping national policy known as “the Final Solution,” which sought to eliminate Jews from the face of the Earth.To accomplish this, Adolf Hitler and his minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, launched a massive campaign to convince the German people that the Jews were their enemies. Having taken over the press, they spread lies blaming Jews for all of Germany’s problems, including the loss of World War I. One outrageous lie dating back to the Middle Ages claimed that Jews engaged in the ritual killings of Christian children and used their blood in the unleavened bread eaten at Passover.Using Jews as the scapegoat, Hitler and his cronies orchestrated what they called “the big lie.” This theory states that no matter how big the lie is (or more precisely, because it’s so big), people will believe it if you repeat it enough. Everyone tells small lies, Hitler reasoned, but few have the guts to tell colossal lies. Because a big lie is so unlikely, people will come to accept it.This theory helps us understand so many of the lies throughout history. Although we’ve barely scratched the surface of all those lies.
The Nazi Arabic-language broadcasts were the result of a collaboration between officials in the German foreign ministry and pro-Nazi Arab exiles who found refuge from the British in Berlin, most notably Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the most important Palestinian religious and political figure of the era, and Rashid Ali al-Kilani, leader of a pro-Axis coup in Iraq in 1941, which was quickly reversed by the British military. Husseini’s and Kilani’s arrival in Berlin in 1941 provided the Axis with a rare asset: Arabs who could communicate Nazi ideas in colloquial, fluent, and passionate Arabic. Previously, the Arabic broadcasts drew on the expertise of German Orientalists and the local knowledge of German diplomats who had served in the Middle East.Those early broadcasts tended to present the Third Reich as an ally of both Arab nationalists and Muslim fundamentalists. Speeches by Hitler or Joseph Goebbels, his propaganda minister, were generally omitted. Instead, the programs combined commentary on political events in the Middle East with a selective appropriation and interpretation of the Koran. The broadcasts began with an incantation—”Oh Muslims”—and a call for listeners to return to the words of the Koran. During the winter of 1940-41, several broadcasts described Muslims as “backward” because they had “not shown God the proper piety and do not fear him.” A return to traditional Islam, the broadcasts suggested, would lead to victory over Islam’s enemies.This appeal is indicative of the reactionary modernist character of Nazi propaganda, which combined modern technology with calls to reject modern liberal democratic values and institutions. The early Arabic-language broadcasts created the perception of affinity between Nazi ideology and the Koran.
