Since the arab world seems really keen on becoming Shoe people, I am going to start a Shoe Activism watch. The First item comes from the egyptian parliament. During a "debate" over who is the bigger agent to Israel/Iran, a MB MP raised his shoe against an NDP MP that's very far from him, but didn't throw it. Hmm, I see a problem, which begets a question: if a shoe gets held in the hand, but doesn't get thrown, does it count as a sign of arab protest? Anybody knows the rules here?
Ponder on that until you have something better to do with your time, will ya?
