During his surprise visit to Iraq, Mr. Bush was addressing a press conference when Mr. Zaidi lost his temper. He suddenly stood up on his seat and the only thing he could do was to hit Mr. Bush with his footwear. He threw his first shoe towards Mr. Bush saying:
"This is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog!".
Mr. Bush cleverly managed to save himself from the attack so Mr. Zaidi put off his other shoe and threw it towards him saying:
"This is for the widows and orphans and all those killed in Iraq."
Mr. Bush is responsible for thousands of murders and violations of human right laws made through out the world daily. Being a journalist it is the duty of a person to speak the truth but when hundreds of sacred mothers and sisters are raped, dozens of children are killed, respectable old people, innocent citizens are murdered mercilessly in a community then the act like Mr. Zaidi is very much obvious. All the Iraqis have the same sentiments but they are unable to do something.
He was quickly caught by the authorities and nobody knows where he is at the moment.
"I am trying to reach Muntadar since the incident, but in vain," said Fityan Mohammed bureau chief of Al-Baghdadya TV. "His phone is switched off." Mr. Zaidi knew the after-effects of his deed but he dared to protest.
When we look at the scenario around the globe, we come to know that a movement of awareness is making its way in the minds of Muslims and one day the Muslims will bring the cruel to the court to ask for the blood shed!
Hats off! We are proud of you Mr. Zaidi!
