Muntadhar al-Zeidi hurled both his shoes at President Bush and shouted in Arabic, "This is a farewell kiss, you dog. This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."
Apparently al-Zeidi did not feel the same way about Saddam Hussein who had chemical weapons used on his own people, and had people tortured and murdered on a daily basis. There is no record of him or anyone else ever throwing shoes at Saddam, not that one could blame him considering if he had pulled this stunt on Saddam Hussein, al-Zeidi would have never been heard from again.
Mr. al-Zeidi and the Arab world also seem to believe that Arabs flying planes into buildings killing 3,000 innocent people, most of them, Americans, and many women and children, was okay. They also conveniently forget that many Arabs (Al-Qaeda and insurgents) were responsible for most civilian deaths in Iraq via suicide bombings and other attacks on innocent Iraqis.
Mr. al-Zeidi has President Bush and the US Military to thank for having the opportunity to express himself by throwing shoes at the President and actually being able to live to tell about it.
