Iraq court jails Bush shoe-thrower for three years

3 hours ago

BAGHDAD (AFP) — The Iraqi journalist who shot to fame for hurling his shoes at former US president George W. Bush was jailed for three years on Thursday, stirring outrage from his family and supporters.

Television reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi, 30, had pleaded not guilty at the Iraq Central Criminal Court to assaulting Bush during his farewell visit to Iraq last December.

"He was sentenced to three years in jail," defence lawyer Yahia Attabi said outside the Baghdad court.

This noble and brave hero has been imprisoned. What a sad day.

Considering the Arab world, he's lucky he didn't have any body parts cut off.

Whenever I saw that, to even now, I can't help but thinking of Eddie Murphy - Delirious. When he's impersonating his stepdad and his mom throws the shoe and he ducks and goes "You missed me *****!"

I can only hope that's what Bush actually did. Maybe even called dude's wife a Bigfoot.

Sware all of Iraq should get together and all donate 1 hour of their time to take place of his jail time. If enough people gave up 1 hour to go sit in a jail cell, they should free this man.


HE IS A FRIGGIN HERO! :)

Funny that it was someone from Iraq that did it and nobody ever from America ever did it.

Iraq > America

such a harsh penalty. i think the guy saw an assassin behind bush and he was just trying to defend him the best way he knew how to.

Really? I would've thought that considering the Arab world, he would've been treated like a hero.

^^ What, you mean the guy next to Bush at the time?
