You don’t have to be a geopolitical wonk to know that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is no fan of Israel. So you can imagine he wasn’t too happy to find a Jewish star hiding in plain sight. Yep, that one in the photo from Google Earth, which reminds me of this.

From the JPost:

Did Israeli prankster architects sneak a Star of David onto the roof of the Teheran airport, or is the controversy in Iran over a Google Earth revelation much ado about nothing?

The six-pointed star was discovered by an eagle-eyed Google Earth user recently, over three decades after the building that houses the national airline of the Islamic Republic was constructed by Israeli engineers.

Israel and the Shah’s Iran maintained good ties until the Islamic Revolution of 1979 ended the relationship. Before 1979, Israel brokered arms deals with Iran, and there were regular flights between Teheran and Tel Aviv.

Once the existence of the Star of David was reported in Iranian media, government officials called for the immediate removal of the apparently offensive Jewish symbol.

Obviously, the Elders of Zion had their hand in this one.
