The 2012 Olympic Games Logo is Racist

This is according to the completely racially tolerably country of Iran, who are threatening to boycott the 2012 Olympic Games in London not because the logo is ugly and causes epileptic seizures, but because the logo is to Jewish.
The secretary general of Iran's National Olympic Committee said Iran sent a letter to International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge. The letter claims the 2012 logo spells out "Zion," a biblical term widely recognized to refer to the city of Jerusalem. In comments carried by the official IRNA news agency Monday, secretary general Bahram Afsharzadeh said the letter urges other Muslim states to oppose the "racist 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," the letter said. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel's destruction and questioned historical accounts of the Holocaust. Iranian athletes have refused to compete against Israelis.
Iran -- who's won a total of 48 medals (mostly in wrestling and weightlifting) since the Games began in 1904 -- will be sorely missed. Boycott away.
