-Iran: London Olympics Logo is ‘Racist’ May Boycott

Iran has issued an official protest of the logo for the 2012 London Olympics. The Iranian authorities claim it is ‘racist’ and contains the word ‘Zion’. They are threatening to boycott the  2012 Olympics if it is not changed.

According to the secretary general of Iran’s National Olympic Committee Bahram Afsharzadeh said that his country sent a letter of complaint to International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge concerning the 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."

Meanwhile, Olympic officials are dumbfounded by the issue since the logo was originally introduced and publicized in 2007. The IOC quickly responded to the letter in question and rejected the Iranian complaint:

"Our response is as follows: The London 2012 logo represents the figure 2012, nothing else."

The IRNA news agency said today that Iranian officials were urging other Muslim states to complain and oppose the "racist logo."

Response: Wow! The entire Middle East is in turmoil and the Iranians somehow see “Zion’ where there is nothing but a harmless 2012 and makes an issue out of this?

Take a look, what do you see?

I don’t know, looks kinda like a Swastika to me! Maybe it is ‘racist’ after all—anti-Semitic. Oh well go figure. Bring on the Rorschach test. Maybe this says more about the observer than the object.           *Top
