1. Edward Bradbrooke: Only a Few Were Masons
Only a few of those who signed the Declaration of Independence, 1776 were Freemasons. I should know, because I am a Mason.

It's true that Ben Franklin, Geo. Washington, Paul Revere were Freemasons. As for the rest?? Very questionable. I hope this guy can get his facts straight.

Also, there is no real Masonic Symbolism on the American One Dollar Bill, except for the All Seeing Eye. This design is not the exact  type that is used in Masonic Symbolism.

2. Charles Bassett : Admires Golda
Subject: Re: Jerusalem News-401

Yair: I read the quotation from Golda Meir, and was thinking of her, I had great admiration for her when she was head of Israel's government. She is one of two women that I would have voted to be president of the United States, along with Margaret Thacher of Great Britain. I think they should have been named the two greatest women of the 20th Century. We need some more like them.

3. The Star of David Spells "David"?

"All evidence suggests that the early use of the hexagram was limited to "practical Kabbalah," that is, Jewish magic, probably dating back to the 6th century C.E. Legends connect this symbol with the "Seal of Solomon," the magical signet signet *ring used by King Solomon to control demons and spirits."


The site you quote from  is a Messianic Jewish site.
The article is not bad but it relies on Gershon Scholem
as a source.
Gershon Scholem, "The Star of David; History of a Symbol,"
in "The Messianic Idea in Judaism".
 Scholem is useful but he lacked the insight of a believer and he tended to focus
on the outlandish and to apply exceptional maverick instances as the general rule.
In the Middle Ages Jews were superstitious (by our standards)
just as everybody else was at that time.
Just because we find something used in Medieval symbolism
we should not assume it originated there.
If we start making assumptions of that nature we are liable to become as bad as they were then.

In Ancient Hebrew Script (also referred to as "Canaanite" and "Phoenician")
a triangle represented the letter "Dalet".
This triangle normally faced leftwards but it could be switched around.
The Hexagram (Star of David) is in fact two of these letters superimposed on each other,
i.e. "DD" and the vowels were not necessarily crucial so we have a linguistic sign
meaning DaviD.
