The man who threw his shoe at George Bush during a press conference has become a idol for young Iraqi women and is worshipped as a celebrity.
Muntader al-Zaidi the Iraqi journalist, who infamously threw his shoes at George Bush during a press conference in Iraq in December, has become the object of idol worship and adulation by young Iraqi women.
Even though he is now serving three years in prison, that has not squashed his fans.
It seems that he recieved a lot of respect from the Iraqi people when he threw his shoes, which is considered the ultimate insult.
One 19 year old medical student said:
"No one dared to face Bush in the whole world, only Muntader al-Zaidi. I love Zaidi. I saw him in my dreams twice. I was so excited in that sweet dream,” she said. “I wish to have that dream again.”
