Can you say Irony! It is a well known fact how bad Iran hates Israel. In fact their hatred extends to all Jews in our out of Israel. But this is one time the Jews get the last laugh.
Please take a close look at the top of the building at almost dead center and you will see the huge Star of David. This emblem is atop a building at the headquarters of the Iranian National Airport. For 32 years, masses of Jewish hating Iranians, including many of their leaders, have taken off and landed under this Jewish Star. How it must have ticked off their esteemed leader to find out that the hated Jews had left behind their symbol and he had never know it. Needless to say, they are moving fast to have this symbol removed as they have enough egg on their face and do not need more.
On a side note, it is interesting to know how much the Iranians fear their Jewish neighbors. In August of this year, a Star of David was spotted on a building in a main square in Tehran, prompting some to claim that the “Zionist regime is conquering the Revolution Square.”
A satellite image of the headquarters of Iran’s national airline reveals a Star of David, and government officials in the Islamic Republic are calling for its immediate removal, according to reports.
The satellite image of the Airline of the Islamic Republic of Iran, also known as Iran Air, was taken by Google Earth, according to Ynetnews.com. Local reports say the building was “built by Israeli engineers” who worked in the country before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
“It’s interesting that even 32 years after the victory of the revolution, this Zionist star symbol has yet to be removed from the building,” a local Iranian website wrote, according to Ynetnews.com.
The calls to remove the symbol were accompanied by local media reports on Iran’s close relations with Israel prior to the revolution.
According to the local reports, El Al planes regularly took off from Tehran’s Mehrabad International Airport airport to Ben-Guron Airport in Tel Aviv between 1960 and 1979. In addition, Israel sold weapons to the army of Iran’s king, Shah Mohamed Reza Pahlavi, in exchange for oil.
