    Yeah it's a big insult. Remember when President Bush had the shoe thrown at him by an Iraqi Reporter?

    Here's the link:

    Shoe Thrown at President Bush

    And the ITN reporters words:

    "His final farewell to the country he sent his troops to five years ago, George W. Bush under attack, not from militant bombs, not even from friendly fire, but from this, a sweaty shoe from an Iraqi reporter. He's been called worse in the past but this journalist likened him to a dog. W not frightened though. Who would be with tens of muscle men bodyguards to save your bacon. The biggest insult in the Arab world, to slap your shoe against somebody."
