It appears the Government of Iran might be reading this site. Flash back to almost four years ago, when I wrote about the logo for the 2012 Londonistan Olympic Games. I noted that Rumor Mill News–a site run by a couple who claim to have been CIA operatives on whom the government plays mind control games–claimed the logo looks like the word, “Zion.” Well, now, Iran is claiming the same thing.

Nearly four years later, the Iranian government (in addition to announcing it won’t allow Iranians to compete against Israeli athletes) has lodged a complaint with the International Olympic Committee and the committee in charge of hosting the London Games, claiming the same thing–the the logo is a secret Zionist plot to push the word “Zion” into our subconscious . . . or something like that. Iran is threatening to boycott the games if the stupid, “Zionist” logo isn’t changed.

But, since–as I’ve repeatedly noted on this site–the Olympic games are notoriously anti-Semitic and ANTI-Zionist a/k/a anti-Israel, the complaint is baloney. In fact, I asked artist David Lunde to create this far more accurate Olympic logo, which I designed and which is infinitely more appropriate to all those involved with the Olympic games . . .

Iran objects to the logo for the 2012 London Olympics, contending it is racist [DS: Pot. Kettle. Black.] because it resembles the word “Zion” and warning of a possible boycott of the Games.
The secretary general of Iran’s National Olympic Committee said Iran sent a letter to International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge. The letter claims the 2012 logo spells out “Zion,” a biblical term widely recognized to refer to the city of Jerusalem.
In comments carried by the official IRNA news agency Monday, secretary general Bahram Afsharzadeh said the letter urges other Muslim states to oppose the “racist logo.”
“There is no doubt that negligence of the issue from your side may affect the presence of some countries in the Games, especially Iran which abides by commitment to the values and principles,” the letter said.
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel’s destruction and questioned historical accounts of the Holocaust.
So, what, if Iran is threatening a boycott. How many Iranian Olympic champions do you remember?
