THE Iraqi journalist who hurled his shoes at former US president George W. Bush in Baghdad has voted in secret from his prison cell in the country's provincial election.
"Muntazer al-Zaidi voted on January 28,'' an official with the Central Criminal Court of Iraq said.
"Nobody was allowed to ask him whom he would vote for so it would not be considered as a way of trying to influence his choice.''
Police, soldiers, hospital patients and prisoners cast advance votes on Wednesday to avoid the security, logistical and electoral fraud problems which plagued the 2005 parliamentary elections.
Mr Zaidi, 29, gained instant international fame when he threw his shoes at Bush during the US president's farewell visit to Iraq on December 14, an action considered a grave insult in the Arab world.
The journalist for the Al-Baghdadia television faces charges of ``aggression against a foreign head of state during an official visit''.
If convicted he faces up to 15 years in jail.
Up to 15 million people will be voting today to choose provincial councils in 14 of the country's 18 provinces in the first election since 2005.
I hope this piece of shit spends 15 years in jail, he obviously prefers the Saddam era, sounds harsh? no, under the Saddam regime he would have had his brain " liberated" from the prison of his skull within 10 seconds of him throwing his shoe at Saddam or any of his arsehole sons or upper management,via a baseball bat or a bullet to the temple.
Of course the liberals and their Islamic terror apologists in the west, would have been saying things like "who are we to judge" " Islamic culture is not like other cultures and whilst their social customs are at times, to the uneducated westerners, are confronting we in the west should ask what was it, the shoe thrower did to deserve to have his brains blown out" and the old stand by of "Islam means peace" and an announcement of a "Multi Faith Outreach" conference some where or other in NY or LA,code for, hey how you too can justify the beheading, enslavement and torture of "infidels" by Islams finest the world over, in the name of "peace"
I am glad this ungrateful spineless sack of Islamic shit has been afforded the right to vote, I am outraged that one DROP of " Infidel" blood has been spilt for that to become a realty for this arse clown
Garbage IN Garbage OUT
