Speaking of Dictators (Sane and Insane)

It seems the Logo for the London Olympics

in 2012 is offensive to The Mad Mullahs of Iran.

The London logo shows the numbers “2012” in four jagged figures and until now has only been criticised for its design.

Now we are being told that, looked at in a certain light, at a certain angle, and with certain eye defects, it is the word “Zion”.

Zion is a term that can refer to the city of Jerusalem or Israel as the national home of the Jewish people. Iran does not recognise Israel.

Iran does not even recognise that the Holocaust is an historical event.

“Certainly other countries, including Islamic nations, will react to this racist logo and this would jeopardise the goals of the Olympic games in the world,” said Bahram Afsharzadeh, the general secretary of Iran National Olympic Committee.

He warned the International Olympic Committee that “negligence of the issue from your side might affect the presence of some countries, especially Iran.”

Obviously some members of the ruling class in Iran have been forgetting to wear their Tinfoil Hats.
