Good Day folks, talking about latest news, what came on your mind right away?
Zaidi throws his shoes towards Bush!!
I assume that you did read/heard about this news yesterday, but if you don’t know what actually happened. Please kindly check your yesterday’s newspaper (16th Dec) or click here for BBC News about Bush Brushes off shoe attack. Or read below…
During a press conference at the Prime Minister’s Palace in Baghdad, Iraq, al-Zaidi threw his shoes at President George W. Bush. Throwing shoes is an act of extreme disrespect in both the Arab and Islamic cultures.
“This is a farewell kiss from the Iraqi people, you are a dog,” yelled al-Zaidi in Arabic as he threw his first shoe towards the U.S. president.
“This is for the widows and orphans and all those killed in Iraq,” he shouted as he threw his second shoe.
President Bush ducked twice, avoiding being hit by the shoes. Al-Zaidi was then pulled to the floor by another journalist,before being grabbed by Prime Minister Maliki’s guards, kicked, and rushed out of the room. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino was hit in the face by a microphone boom sent flying by a presidential bodyguard resulting in a clearly visible black eye.
Some Iraqi reporters present at the scene offered apologies to President Bush. “Thanks for apologizing on behalf of the Iraqi people. It doesn’t bother me,” Mr. Bush joked: “If you want the facts, it’s a size 10 shoe that he threw.” When asked about the incident by another reporter, Bush said “It’s a way for people to draw attention. I don’t know what the guy’s cause was. I didn’t feel the least bit threatened by it.” When later asked to reflect on the incident, Bush said “I didn’t have much time to reflect on anything, I was ducking and dodging.” “I’m not angry with the system. I believe that a free society is emerging, and a free society is necessary for our own security and peace,” he added. “I don’t think that you can take one guy throwing his shoe as representative of the people of Iraq,” argued White House Press Secretary Dana Perino.
In today’s newspaper, al-Zaidi has became Iraqi’s hero, everyone knows about him. But I’m not going to discuss why Bush is being thrown shoes by an Iraqi journalist, neither al-Zaidi’s action.
