From one of the worldwide protests in support of Gaza:

"To their royal highnesses, tfoo!"

Whilst throwing shoes at someone is particularly offensive in the Arab world, Western intellectuals and experts have yet to realise just how offensive spitting on someone can be as well. I think somebody should write a book about this bizarre cultural phenomenon...

hehehehe... some Muntadhar Zaidi should spit at one of their war criminals for them to learn more about our weird culture.

I remember this picture. I think it's from an Egyptian protest during the Israeli invasion of the West Bank in 2002.

I agree. Someone should endeavor to study this cultural phenomenon of offenses and insults in the arab world.
