This is absurd. Apart from anything else, I can't see it, but also even if I could, do they really think that this is some kind of subliminal pro-Israeli propoganda attempt? Do they really think that the Israeli lobby in London somehow pushed for this design? This is aimed to be some kind of principled stand, but in reality it just looks like their spoiling for a fight about nothing. Also, it's really sad most of all for the Iranian athletes. I think most of them are probably quite sensable people with good eyesight and just want the oppotunity to compete fairly.
Really, you can't see it? I mean, I wouldn't have been able to if I wasn't looking for it but yeah, I can see it. It looks like a lot of things actually, it's kind of amusing.
I can see the Z, sort of. The top piece is too diganoal for it really to be a Z. If the 1 is meant to be an I, then it has a very odd kink in it. The O is clearly enough the zero, but how exactly is the second 2 an N? Or am I just looking at it wrong
I want to say Iran is just doing some stupid bullshit, but if they were American I would believe that they were sincere but just really really stupid and whiny so I don't know.
They're most likly being sincere, but it just seems so bizare. I don't know, I'm not sure what to make of it at all.
Oh yeah, it is... I see that now ;P
Anyway, if that douchebag wants his country out of the olympics due to this silly reason, the only thing he's going to achieve is to become even more unpopular amoung his people. So maybe the commity should consider making it look more like zion, by switching the logo's numbers around it's diagonal axes, but then it would make even less sense for us normal people ;)
Well, that's pretty ridiculous. If they want to boycott, fine. They've got to know it's an absurd claim. I mean, really.
It certainly isn't a very aesthetically appealing logo, but nobody should be changing it because a government claims to see a subliminal message in it.
