Farewell kiss

Posted By on Sun, Dec 14, 2008 at 7:19 PM

You too, can throw a shoe.

from the Washington Post :

"This is a farewell kiss!" the man, identified as Muntadar al-Zaidi, a reporter with the Cairo-based network Al Baghdadia Television, yelled as he threw the shoes... Zaidi started to yell "Dog, dog!" as he was surrounded by security agents, who tackled him to the floor and began to beat him... Zaidi, colleagues said, was kidnapped by Shiite militiamen last year and was later released. Throwing a shoe at someone is considered the worst possible insult in Iraq , and is meant to show extreme disrespect and hatred towards someone."
