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.
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.
