I don’t know whether this belongs under Jew Cooties or Israel Derangement Syndrome, but it is the most awesomely awesome paranoid Jew thing out of Iran since the Star of David on the roof of whatever the hell that building was.
Iran says it’s going to boycott the London Olympics because the symbol looks like it spells the word “Zion.”
Judge for yourself, and laugh. And laugh. And laugh.
In a formal complaint to the International Olympic Committee, Tehran has called for the graphic to be replaced and its designers “confronted”, warning that Iranian athletes might otherwise be ordered to stay away from the London Games.
According to the state-backed Iranian Students News Agency, which is frequently used to convey official pronouncements, the letter says: “As internet documents have proved, using the word Zion in the logo of the 2012 Olympic Games is a disgracing action and against the Olympics’ valuable mottos.
Yes, us wily Jews. We live in your minds, rent-free … all the time.
