Israel Hits Iran where it hurts...with a Star of David

YNET translates from Iranian reports:

Iranian authorities once again 'hit' by past friendly relations with Israel: Images published Saturday by Iranian media outlets show a Star of David on the roof of the main national airline's building at the Tehran airport.

The satellite image was taken from the Google Earth service. According to the Iranian report, the Iran Air building was "built by Israeli engineers," who operated in the countries before the 1979 Islamic Revolution during the days of Shaa 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," a local 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.

According to the reports, since 1960 El Al planes used to regularly take off from the Tehran airport to Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. In addition, Israel sold weapons to the Shaa's army in exchange for oil, and Israeli experts trained their Iranian colleagues in the fields of agriculture and trade. More on ynet

Personally, I'm still waiting for the IDF Armored Engineering Corps to engrave a Star of David into the Tehran runways, like we did in Gaza.

I was on Google maps awhile back, when whatever yahoo it was at the time was making noise about a "flying flotilla," and we were trying to figure out where it could land in Gaza.

I found the airstrip, and immediately noticed the Magen David on the runway. I've been wondering about it since then. I found another one, too, fairly recently, but I don't remember where now.

Our forces are so cool ;)
