Shoe weapon getting popular, latest attack on israel ambassador
Demonstrators have invented weapon of showing anger and distrust.And it shoe.Well the use of it cannot be taken as violent, or better would be to tell it as non-violent attack.But the purpose of this kind of attack on world leaders, from Bush to Wen Jiabo, and now the Israeli diplomat, has a commonality , all such incident attracts immediate attention and force the think tank to think what and where they went wrong.
Hope in coming days we will see the international conference for banning shoes in such gathering or passing some qualitative and quantitative restriction on the use of shoes.The possibility of an international treaty also cannot be overruled.
At least it will protect the, so called world leaders from the shoe attack,and related sleepless night.
Israel's ambassador to Sweden was hit when a shoe and books were thrown at him as he was giving a lecture at Stockholm University,
radio reports said on Thursday.
Benny Dagan was talking about upcoming elections in his country on Wednesday night when the objects were hurled at him from the audience of 50 people. Police at the event took two people into custody.
The motive was believed to be a protest against Israel's policy toward the Palestinians.
A tossed shoe is considered a grave insult in the Arab world, and the incident involving Dagan followed another in December in which an Iraqi journalist threw shoe at US president George W Bush. The incident occurred at a press conference during Bush's farewell visit to Iraq before he left office last month. Bush ducked and was not hit.
A protestor shouting "Dictator" also tossed a shoe on Monday at Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao while he was visiting Cambridge University in Britain. The shoe missed the premier.
