The Moroccan Flag, Before the Nazi’s Rewrote History


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:

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.
