Quote of the Day...

From iran.org (Foundation For Democracy In Iran):

"Remember that an Iraqi journalist, angry with George. W. Bush for having overthrown Saddam Hussein, received international attention and was considered a "hero" by al Jazeera and other Islamist news outlets when he threw his shoes at President Bush during a news conference in Baghdad with prime minister al-Malaki?
Remember also the official White House photograph of President Barack Obama, speaking with newly elected Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu?
Obama was photographed with his feet up on his desk, showing his shoes to Netayanhu, a position of supreme disrespect.
That White House photograph was reproduced all across the Middle East and

taken as a sign of a new U.S. policy of disapproval toward Israel."
