Man throws his shoes at Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
For Muslims and Arabs, throwing shoes at someone (or something) is a sign of great disrespect in Arab countries. You probably remember back in 2008 when a Muslim tossed his shoes at then President George W. Bush, and the media had a field day with it. In Iran, according to CNN a 45-year-old textile worker who’s been out of work for over a year tossed his shoes at Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Unfortunately, he missed and hit a banner behind AchmedDinnerJacket instead.
Knowing the mullahs and Ahmadinejad, the man who tossed his shoes at him has probably been beheaded by now.
