The sign on new N100 is not a Jewish sign - LIB reader

Just got this email from someone who doesn't agree that the sign on the new N100 note is a Jewish sign. The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), think it is. (read here). The mail below...
"Picture attached shows that Star of David has 6 points (pictured left) like someone noted here, while that symbol on the Naira which I dont know its meaning is 8 points.
MURIC should be asking the meaning of that symbol with 8 points not showing their ignorance by quickly concluding it is the Jewish Star of David.
The arewa sign has 8 points...that makes more sense. Thank God for information technology, we cannot be fooled. Just Google it."
