Taken from the BBC website:
Iranians "would not be missed" if they decided to boycott the London Olympics, David Cameron is reported as saying.
Last week, Iran threatened to stay away over claims the 2012 logo was racist as it resembled the word "Zion", a biblical term for Israel.
The prime minister told London-based paper Jewish News: "It's completely paranoid. If the Iranians don't want to come, don't come - we won't miss you.
"It would be a crazy reason for not coming," he said.
The London logo shows the numbers "2012" in four jagged figures and until now has only been criticised for its design.
'Embrace the spirit'
Iranian Olympic officals sent a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) highlighting the perceived link.
But IOC president Jacques Rogge dismissed the claims and said he would "quietly" reply saying the logo "has nothing to do with racism or any political connotation".
This is I believe the same Iran OC who refused a wrestling bout in the last games because the opponent was an Isreali.
Attitudes like that do not belong in thy Olympic movement.
They're abit late, the zion comparisons were all over the net pretty much the minute the logo was released to the public.
I know Iran don't like the West but have they really been looking the other way all this time?!
You really couldn't make this stuff up.
I only posted it as I am agasp they find the word zion so offensive....
I wonder if the 8008 olympics logo will be boycotted against by ubberwomen of the future?
It's ridiculous isn't it! 2016 has a big danger of spelling Zoig. I've just google Zoig and it's porn, I am boycotting the 2016 Olympics on account of this.
2020 could look like SOSO and I don't want a so-so Olympics so I'm boycotting that too.
