Iranian government officials have been outraged to discover that a Star of David, the symbol of Judaism, is on the roof of the Iran Air headquarters building. Upon discovering the image on Google Earth, Iranian officials demanded its immediate removal. Ynet News broke the story:
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.
Google Maps was also recently at the center of a diplomatic dispute between Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
