The star of David was equated to the swastikas.

In October 2014 anti-Semitic graffiti equating Jews and Nazis was found scrawled on the Temple Mount, leading to an outpouring of anger by Jewish and Zionist organizations.

The graffiti, showing a Star of David and a swastika joined by an equal sign, was found during a time of tension between Muslims and Jews at the holy site, with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas recently calling for Jewish pilgrims to be barred “by any means.”
