Iran has threatened to boycott the London Olympics unless the organisers replace the official logo, which Tehran claims spells out the word "Zion".

Incoherent post from me, sorry.
Keep the logo, lose the Iranians.
oh boy...first the logo was a dirty Lisa Simpson and now, this....
Looks like it was made out of glass and someone threw a rock through it. I think it spells ZIZO. But then I’ve not had my morning coffee.
The goat-effer gold would be up for grabs.
The bigger question is.... like Christian and pro-American holidays, will GOOGLE refuse to use the Olympics logo?
As ugly as it is, this is a reason to keep it.
Iran’s wrestlers are very good and are considered national heroes.
Actually, the Brits organizing the 2012 Olympics have been most accommodating to Islamics:
London 2012: Olympic toilets will not face Mecca
Public conveniences are being specially designed at London’s Olympic Park so Muslims will not have to face Mecca while sitting on the loo.
That is one ugly logo.
And the Iranians are loony-tunes.
It looks like crap.
The line between the liberal socialists and the fundamental Islamists gets more blurry as each day passes. Getting so riled up and aggrieved about the most mundane and irrelevant BS is such a lib thing to do.
I recall riots somewhere, a few years ago, ofer some fast-food franchise moving into the middle east. Seems that when you tipped the bag of frozen fries upside down into the fryolator, the picture of the fries looked like the Arabic word for “allah”, and riots naturally ensued.
This shows why the left and Islam are so closely tied. They use the same tactics to control conversation, thought, and discourse by aggressively taking over pieces of language as their own.
Bet the Olympics changes the logo AND apologizes to Muslims everywhere for trying to sneak such a coded message into the logo.
Yet the Flight 93 memorial site does NOT have a star-crescent design facing Mecca, nope no way.
they probably don’t realise that it’s supposed to be a year.
i just looked it up and it looks like it’ll be the 1433 olympics for them.
They would probably have more luck complaining about the color.
There is something (from the deep recesses of my mind) about the color blue and Islam.
For the first time in my life, I agree with the Iranians. . .not because it looks like Zion. . but because it looks like CRAPI agree. This is as stupid-looking as the DNC logo. Leftist 20-somethings shouldn't be allowed near design software. They should concentrate on making their low-flow toilets work.
Hold it up to a mirror and it spells out “Paul is dead.”
70 to 30 they WILL change the logo.
“My guess is its psy-ops.”
Agree. Thought control through language control.
