Why Iraqi's Beat Images of Saddam With Shoes

| Comments

I just heard on the TV why we’ve been seeing images of Iraqi’s hitting pictures/statues/etc. of saddam with their shoes. Apparently, it is improper etiquette to show the soles of your shoes. Therefore, taking your shoes off and hitting those items with the soles is one of the most effective ways they can show their complete disdain for saddam. Very interesting.
