    Google Earth reveals Star of David on roof of Iran Air HQ

    Building was constructed by Israeli engineers prior to Islamic Revolution; Iranian officials incensed, call for Jewish symbol's removal.

    Talkbacks (17)
    Iranian government officials were angered by the revelation that a Star of David can be seen on the roof of the headquarters of Iran Air, the Islamic Republic's national airline, Al Arabiyya reported on Monday. The Star of David was discovered in a satellite image of Teheran airport taken by Google Earth.

    Upon learning of the existence of the Jewish symbol through local media reports, the government officials called for its immediate removal.

    The Iran Air building upon which the Star of David was found was constructed by Israeli engineers prior to the 1979 Islamic Revolution which ended diplomatic relations between the two countries.

    Israel enjoyed good relations with the Iranians during the pre-revolution reign of Shah Mohamed Reza Pahlavi. Local media in Iran mentioned that there were regular flights between Teheran and Tel Aviv and Israel even sold weapons to the Shah's army.

    In August, Iranians were outraged to find a Star of David on the roof of a building in Teheran's Revolution Square.

    It's possible there's no low-level flights allowed above the building, so you'd never see it. And if you're on the ground on the roof, it's probably too big for anyone to realize what it is. This reminds me of this story:

    I think they probably knew but didn't give a damn, until some religious big politician saw it.

    Yeah. As long as the general Iranian public didn't know about it, no big deal.
