Google Earth uncovers second 'Star of David' in Tehran

By anita nair

London, Dec 1 (ANI): A satellite image taken from Google Earth service has uncovered a 'Star of David,' a symbol associated with Judaism, on the roof of the Iran's national airline's building at the Tehran airport.

According to an Iranian media report, the Iran Air building was "built by Israeli engineers," who operated in the countries before the 1979 Islamic Revolution during the days of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

"It's interesting that even 32 years after the victory of the revolution, this Zionist star symbol has yet to be removed from this building," an Iranian news website wrote.

The calls to remove the Star of David, which the Iranian authorities view as a symbol associated with Israel, were accompanied by local media reports on the close relations with Israel in the past, which were completely severed after the revolution, Ynetnews said.

This is not the first time a Star of David sparked a media row in Iran. In August, it was spotted on one of the buildings in a main square in Tehran, which were accompanied by claims that "the Zionist regime is conquering the Revolution Square."

The square, which was redesigned as a dome, was covered with hundreds of Stars of David defined by Iranian media as "a symbol of evil standing in the center of strategic heart" of the Islamic Republic's capital. (ANI)
