Wow, you can hardly tell the two apart. I can't figure out why a Muslim country would use so many Stars of David on their flag, must be at least 50 of them.

Looks fine to me, but I'm dyslexic. :P

The only similarity I see with the flags is the color and the placement of the moon.

only the top half looks remotely similar to the isreali flag. i think it would look better if the star was a dark blue or green, the strips should be green, black, light blue to symbolize prosperity, a time of hard ship, and a new era. but i dont know what the arab reactions to the flag would be like.
