Iran has threatened to boycott the 2012 Summer Olympics in London because the logo of the games resembles the world “Zion”. Iran has now complained to the International Olympic Committee – 4 years after the logo was launched.
But see for yourself:
To me, the logo looks more like Lisa Simpson giving head. (An interpretation which the Islamic Republic of Iran probably finds only slightly less evil than anything that smacks of Zionism.)
Might Iran simply be looking for an excuse to avoid any athletic competition after its recent showings in chess and weightlifting, where Iranians were outplayed by Israelis respectively?

It has to be something in the water. Especially after hearing Khaddafi verbally meandering around, commenting that he has no money overseas and that the only rebels are drugged-up Al-Qaeda flunkies. Could it be that the Soviets lied, and that most of Chernobyl’s fallout went south, not west? Or are some of those poison gas stockpiles from Iraq starting to leak after a decade of neglect? :)

It looks like a lego man to me… has nothing to do with “zionists”
They just want to cause problems….
Btw, i am sorry you wasted 6 days in prison in Iran. Hope they didnt do anything to you..
To me it appears to show China taking over as the world super-power, and America reducing to a mere little squire in the middle of the world.
