Iran Angry Over Star of David on Airline Building
03-Dec-2010 (3 comments)

Iranian media reports say officials are calling for the removal of a Star of David painted on the roof of the headquarters of the country's national airline, after the Jewish symbol was revealed in a satellite image.

The reports say Internet media giant Google took the image of the building, which was reportedly "built by Israeli engineers" who worked in Iran before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Describing the star as a "Zionist" symbol, an Iranian website said it is "interesting" that more than 30 years after the revolution, the depiction has yet to be removed.

Israel and Iran traded arms and oil before the revolution, but their relationship has deteriorated. Iran frequently expresses a desire to destroy the Jewish state.

Israeli news site says this is not the first time a symbol associated with Judaism has sparked outrage in Iran. The site says hundreds of Stars of David spotted in August on a building in a main square in Tehran prompted an uproar in Iranian media.

It's not unheard of here in the US for this kind of thing taking place, only in the American cases it is the swastika symbol associated with the nazis, where in Iran it is the star of david associated with zionism.

Back in '76 during the time of the Shah, a newly designed 200 rial note (I think it was) was issued with an emblem that looked like a star of david. It was on the note's reverse side. When it was realized (I saw it right away) the notes were recalled and an altered design was used. I still have in my collection one of the original designs with the offending symbol. 


yea, of course it'd take the Jewish Guy at Google

To tell these half brain islamist dumb phucks that the star of David had been sitting on top of the building of their Islamist Airline for the past 31 years without them even knowing about it...

These morons can't even detect this.  Google's image (an American company) has to show them that.  OK folks lets have it, the apologists run to save the day.  These leeches dont even know things happenign under their own noses. How can they prevent the world powers from removing them from power.  This regime can be removed in under a week, GUARANTEE!
