1. It is a great photo!

Isn't it an insult to put your foot, or shoe, on the photo of someone's face? I seem to remember this.

3. Anything to cover that sphincter under his nose.

He is the only person I have ever seen whose mouth looks like an asshole. Except his children, of course.

4. Yes, see here.

Shoe Tossing

Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoe_tossing#Insult

Insult

In many Arab cultures, throwing a shoe at someone is considered extremely insulting. It is also considered rude to display the sole of one's foot to someone. In 2008, Iraqi cameraman Muntadar al-Zaidi was arrested and incarcerated for throwing two shoes at United States President George W. Bush while the president was visiting Baghdad. President Bush ducked and was not struck by the shoes. Shoe throwing as an insult is not limited to the Arab world; other notable incidents have involved other celebrities and world leaders, including Steve McCarthy, David Beckham, Harry Styles, Lily Allen, Hillary Clinton, and Wen Jiabao.

5. The bottom of the shoe is considered vile

and when shoes are used to step on peopleís likenesses it is a profound insult indeed. Itís also an insult if a shoe is thrown at someone as it was at George Bush in Iraq.

22. Showing the sole of the shoe is quite the insult in Arab cultures.

You're considered lower than low. This Palestinian's got it right.

23. That's why we'll never see him in a room full of Arabs other than Saudi royalty.

Especially after this recent sham "peace deal", they would shoe bomb and spit on him mercilessly.

I'm reading we just alienated millions of people in Jordon, creating further unrest just to please Bibi.....
