Star of David found engraved on ancient Egyptian temple causes ‘bustle’ in Egypt

911[1]

The Roman Ptolemaic Temple, which dates back to the 3rd century B.C, is located in the Elephantine Island in Aswan.

(Head of the Egyptian Antiquities branch in the Antiquities Ministry Dr. Mahmoud) Afifi accused the delegation of German archaeologists that has been working on the site’s reconstruction of engraving the Stars of David into the Shrine’s stone.

Afifi ordered the archaeologists to immediately remove the stone with the Star of David’s engraving from the temple, threatening to take all legal measures against them if they would ever repeat such a move.

An Egyptian news site, Suezbalady, went even further, claiming that the two Star of David engravings that were found were drawn by a Jewish member of the German delegation, who wanted to vandalize Egyptian culture and provoke Egyptians.
