Iran threaten to boycott games in the name of anti-Semitism

Aug 11, 2008
So the 2012 looks like Zion. And the Jews are running the whole show as normal.

Very good analysis in Robin Shepherd's blog:

In an anti-Semitic slur that would not have looked out of place in Germany in 1935, Iran has launched an official complaint over the logo for the London Olympics in 2012 saying it is racist because it spells the word “Zion”.

Mohammad Aliabadi (read Joseph Goebbels), who is head of the Iranian National Olympic Committee, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying: “The use of the word Zion by the designer of Olympics logo ….in the emblem of the Olympic Games 2012 is a very revolting act.”

The logo says nothing of the sort, of course, but in the deranged minds of Holocaust deniers and conspiracy theorists the image of the dreaded Jew is everywhere that power and the symbols thereof reside. Of course, for the BBC, which is soft on anti-Semitism (and Holocaust denial) when it emanates from the Muslim world, this was all quite amusing.
