Baghdad, Iraq - A journalist has thrown a pair of shoes at George W. Bush, as the President arrived in Baghdad on an unannounced farewell visit to Iraq.

The Iraqi journalist threw the shoes, when the US president was shaking hands with the Iraqi prime minister Nuri al-Maliki in his office in Baghdad on Sunday, AFP reported.

The Iraqi who was sitting in the third row ‘jumped up’ shouting “It is the farewell kiss, you dog,” the report says.

He then threw his shoes one after the other towards Bush. The president was reportedly not hurt, as the shoes did not hit him. Iraqi security staff ‘frogmarched’ the journalist out.

In Arab culture, throwing shoes is a sign of contempt. Even showing someone the bottom of your shoe is a sign of contempt, and it's about the rudest thing you can do. So this guy wasn't necessarily trying to hurt the President, but to insult him. That goes along with calling him a dog, which is a terrible insult in Arabic, even worse than in Yiddish.

Did I hear that right? "The rudest thing" these muslim fanatics do is to throw shoes?? Really?
How about cutting your throat with an old rusty kitchen knife??
How about shooting you in cold blood just for being an infidal??
How about slaughtering a father and mother in front of their 2 year old?
And the list goes on.....

Interestingly, I think this incident says more about what Iraq has become than what Bush did to Iraq. A place where you can actually insult leaders and live to see another day. Ironically, an act of protest reassures the goals of the person he is protesting.

Where the hell was the secert service????????? The president of the United States is attacked and there was no one there to protect him! Despite how you might feel about him, he is the president of the most powerful country in the world. After the first shoe was tossed that guy should have had a bullet in the head and the president should have been wisked away and out of harms way. What would have been the outcome if he tossed two grenades???????????? Everyone on that detail should be fired and we should get some real heros like there were when Reagan got shot.

Actually, this person is a hero to most of the world. Just that most in the world would not dare and have the courage and deal with the consequences; and they rather it be two stones, which should at least have him get stitches, or even worse, and most Americans will agree with it.

I remember when in the pre Iraq war days, when Powell was in the UN presenting the FACTS. Whoever dared say otherwise was booted at a fool and stupid American. The French and Arab leaders who tried to advise us otherwise, were shouted down and their wine boycotted. Myself and one other person in my shul were probably the only STUPID lefties in shul who dared warn that....... the French Chirac might know better then us after all... But we yidden are very right always..

Yes; we should have thrown shoes at him back then.

Arab world was a safer place before YOUR intervention. You are not just racist, but sadly ignorant and uninformed. YOUR oil-lustre-driven war has killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and did not even save YOUR economy or YOUR world reputation. It serves YOU right.

2) Chirac "lost" big time!! For a reason!! Bush (in '04) did not!!
3) The fact that the lefty Powell thought they are a real threat, just proves to me that everyone was on the same boat back then.
4) Look at Iraq today, It's a SUCCESS!! And you & your lefty media have no other choice but to agree!!
So go back to your SHUL and tell your other left buddy that for a change you can be proud of your country! Not bash it!

We should have great respect for President Bush. He has been a true friend of Israel. Recently, Bush had to chastise Olmert for wanting to give the Golan to Syria. When Obama and his team of anti-semites gets in, then you will long for President Bush.

Far from modernising and improving the country Bush has set up huge grieviences which won't be solved for generations to come. Call that Leadership. I call it stupid bloodymindedness.

Funny you mention the high heels. In the Arab world, the ONE thing they allow their women to wear "western style", is heels. Expensive ones! With their full face coverings (Saris) they flash their shiny high heels in the public domain.

Well, if you speak on behalf of the Arab population, why don't you get your U.N. rep's to say so. America would love to hear from you. One lone voice on a jewish blog site won't affect any policy changes. Nor will Obama's decision to pull out change America's perception. America thinks it helped you rid yourselves of Saddam for killing many of your relatives and neighbors for simply saying you want to throw a shoe at a government official. Whatever punishment this journalist gets for this stupid act is nothing compared to the public hanging he would have been subjected to as well as his entire family etc.
This does not mean I disagree that the war may have been really for "Oil" but 9/11 was a damn good excuse if America needed one, so thanks for opening the door for the invasion.
America will leave when they're damn ready!

Pakistan and India are not Arab countries. Pakistan tribal borders (hit every day by USA and NATO war planes and killing innocent people) and what happens in Kashmeer and Afganistan made them upset. It is clear that USA upsets all nations, not just Iraqies or Arabs.

That's funny, and here I thought all of this time that it was the Muslims that were killing each other. Hmm, so it wasn't a civil war between Sunnis and Shiites all of these years but Bush killing people! The media has been lying to us all this time!!!

Muslims did not kill each other in Iraq when there was a strong government that held the ideologically fragmented country together. I agree, Saddam was a dictator and did very ill to those who opposed (or betrayed) him when he was on war against Iran and later USA, but there has never been such a blood shed in the country. America has destroyed peace (however undemocratic) in Iraq and replaced it with a chaos wherein people are suffering from poverty, insecurity and sorrows. Let us all be objective humans and forget where we come from, it is the want to know and tell the truth that make us leave our piled up work and log on to such a web-site. The media is working for money, we are not.
