Google earth reveals Star of David emblazoned on Iran airport roof, Iranians outraged

Outrage After Google Image Reveals Star of David on Roof of Iran Airport
"Iranian officials reportedly are outraged after learning that a Google Earth satellite image revealed a star of David emblazoned atop the roof of the Tehran airport. According to Arabic language news outlet Al Arabiya, national leaders called for the immediate removal of the Zionist symbol after it was discovered on top of the main building of Iran Air. Although Israel and Iran broke ties more than 30 years ago, Al Arabiya reported that the Iran Air building was built by Israeli engineers before the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Citing local reports, it also said that not only did the Iranian government hire Israeli engineers to build the airliner's headquarters, it also scheduled regular flights between the two countries."

O, the horra.

I think it's funnier that it took the Iranians 30 years to notice...


  1. I have just began to read your blogs and enjoy the truth you bring. I am sure that each one of us would want the courage to say what you write. Thank you for your courage. I do know that you would take no credit but give all glory to Jesus who saved your soul and because of your relationship with him you every day have learned to trust him. Keep on believing and trust because the truth needs to be told. Thank you

  2. It is a pentagram. It is also an image that some would say represents David? I would be interested to see, from the scriptures where it is any different than any other image of rebellion that Israel has come up with.

    1. 'Image of rebellion'? I am no sure I'm with you there, Jeff. Every nation has a symbol. The Jewish VIrtual Library explains, "The Magen David (shield of David, or as it is more commonly known, the Star of David) is the symbol most commonly associated with Judaism today, but it is actually a relatively new Jewish symbol. It is supposed to represent the shape of King David's shield (or perhaps the emblem on it), but there is really no support for that claim in any early rabbinic literature." I read elsewhere that Israel wanted a menorah on the flag when the nation declared independence but was pressured into using the Star of David.

      You won't find the Star of David in scriptures, but then again, you wont' find the Stars and Stripes there either. it is a secular symbol for a nation not a religious symbol for a faith.

    2. 1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

      Israel has been in a state of rebellion for quite some time, is it not ironic that they have chosen the same symbol as that is also a pentagram?

      I have an idea that when Israel (those 12,000 of each tribe) finally comes to embrace the savior, they will lose the star.

      Deuteronomy 27:15 Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen.

  3. You know, that was a very interesting comment Jeff made. I am a believer in Bible prophecy and have studied the Bible for over 25 years and love the Jew and the nation of Israel so I want to say that upfront but Jeff might be right. Israel is a nation gathered in unbelief for the most part sooo.... he could be right. I think I will investigate why they chose that symbol and why it is the Star of David. The symbol certainly is satanic ie: pentagram. If so, it may be more at home atop that building than we know.,
    They certainly are in rebellion and will be until the Second Coming.
    Something to think about.
    Elizabeth, do you have any info.?

    1. I agree Israel is in rebellion, Jeff made a great statement there. The Star of David as I mentioned is a newish symbol. Originally they wanted a menorah on their flag which stemmed from the flag the Jews had adopted since the lat 1800s at the World Zionist Organization, but were pressured to drop the religious symbol for this somewhat benign one. I do not know if the star has any specific ties to the pentagram nor if that has anything to do with their rebellion. I think that is a stretch, but that is my opinion. It is to be sure, a secular symbol, or at least, a lot less religious than the menorah.

      You can read about the history of the Israeli flag here at this Israeli government website, and they do address the Star of David.
      Here is a historical take on the star of David from GotQuestions

      There is no reference to the Star (or shield) of David in the Bible. There are several rabbinical tales as to the origin of the Star of David. These range from the star being the shape of King David's shield, to being the symbol on King Solomon's signet (seal) ring, to being an invention of Bar Kokhba, the Jewish leader who led what is known as the Bar Kokhba revolt against the Roman Empire in A.D. 132. Mekubbalim (followers of Kabbala) claim that the symbol has magical powers. There is no explicit historical or archaeological support for any of those claims.

      The star consists of two intertwined triangles: one pointing up to God and the other pointing down to man, symbolizing the relationship between the two—"the interpenetration of two realms" (source: Franz Rosenzweig, Star of Redemption, 1912). The six points are said by Rosenzweig to represent two triads: creation, revelation, and redemption, along with God, Israel, and the Gentile world. These are alternatively characterized by Eder as representing the six aspects of the Divine Spirit as per Isaiah 11:2 (Eder, The Star of David, p. 73). Kabbala teaches that the six points indicate the extent of God’s sovereignty (north, south, east, west, up, and down). The star has 12 lines about its perimeter, possibly representing the 12 Tribes of Israel.

      The earliest archaeological finds bearing the sign are a Jew's tombstone in Tarentum, Italy, dating to the 3rd century and its appearance on the wall of a 6th-century synagogue within the borders of ancient Israel. It was used quite infrequently until its official adoption by Jews in Prague in the 17th century and later by the Zionist movement in 1897. Nazi Germany used the symbol to mark Jews within their borders, and after much debate, it came to be used on the national flag of reconstituted Israel in 1948. As a result, the Star of David is now universally recognized as a representation of Judaism, Israel, and Zionism.

  4. Thanks, that is a great help!

    Hi Jeff, I didn't publish the link accompanying your comment because the Web of Trust add-on scorecard indicated red. The site apparently has a low rating for child safety and a low score on trustworthiness (usually meaning spam and malware). Sorry...

    I agree completely with your comment. Absolutely.

    1. David, Jewish starMarch 27, 2013 at 11:36 AM

      I thought that the Jewish star of David was taken from King David's battle shield.
      Thanks for the clear and short explanation. Very beautiful.
