An excellent point, however, the origins do not point to "equilateral" as the defining characteristic in antiquity. Rather, just an up and down triangle when used together. It would not matter if it was placed on top of the other, or sitting side by side, at least not in alchemy.

I did some in depth research into the Israeli flag a few years ago, and came up with the general meaning of "earth and sky," as the ultimate root origin of the symbolism. Again, this is the oldest use. The Great Pyramid is an example of this older meaning. It was believed a magical tool for transporting the Pharaoh to the constellation Orion.

Here's the Seal of Solomon, which has a more direct relationship to the flag. When designing signet rings and seals, an "equilateral" triangle is all about saving space, but for someone living before geometry, the triangle, pointing either up or down, would have been what conveyed the real message.

Symbolism matters when designing architecture. It matters a lot.

My simple question is, why design a building, which Islamic extremists have twice attacked, to look even remotely like an Israeli Zionist symbol?  It's as if the designer didn't care to consider this.
My simple answer: Because there is no connection.

Edit: I see what you're saying and I'm glad you explained yourself a little further, but it's a little too far fetched.

The OP's point is a point, or three in fact.

One thing it is not, is 'beyond reasonable doubt'.

Look at all of the reasonable people doubting it. If this were a legal case against the architect, do you think he would be found guilty of deliberately trying to antagonise anyone?

Would you like to elaborate acidhead?

What... the Moorcockish conceptualisation of Chaos or the Warhammerean Chaos Unidivided?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Unexplained Mysteries or UM. U = 21st letter of the alphabet. M = 13th letter of the alphabet. 13 + 21 = 34. And there are two letters in UM, U and M. 34 + 2 = 36. 36 is 3 and 6. 3 and 6 is also 3 and 3 and 3. There's 3 3's, or if you think of a triangle as having 3 sides, 3 triangles! There! The Zionists have taken over UM! :whistle: :P ^_^ :hmm:

The Shard in London has connections to the flag aswell. I don't understand, if it's in a different country noone mentions it. But in the US it has to be taken notice

Seems a little odd that the colours do not reflect Old Glory though...Just IMO.

Would have been a nice touch
Well the US flag does have stars on it and stars are just triangle points, right?

And those floors on the building are like the stripes on the US flag, one on top of another.

This has got to be the very WORST conspiricy I have ever read. Worse then Bigfoot is an alien. Worse then Godzilla really exists. Worse then Astroboy killed Kennedy. Worse then Gumby was a real creature. Very, very bad.
