Protesters threw their shoes at leaders, or used the heels to smash images of them, during the wave of Arab spring revolutions over the past two years.

I wonder if they keep old shoes for the purpose of throwing those shoes at protests. It would be pretty stupid to throw your new Air Jordans into a crowd every time you get enraged about something.

The action goes against the custom of some Muslim countries, which considers shoes unclean because they are 'closer to the ground, closer to the devil and farther away from God'.

I never understood this, seeing as those same countries drop to the ground 6 times a day, putting their face right on the ground, to pray.

whidbey: BigNumber12: whidbey: I don't see any ideas worth refuting.

Since your reading comprehension seems to be lacking, I'll repeat myself.

1) This guy is their chief diplomat. Why is it unreasonable to expect him to realize that the particular superstition that has upset him is held by a minority of the world's population, and the person he's speaking to is probably unaware of breaching it? Should we be thrilled that their chief diplomat is playing "insult swap" with someone who's completely unaware that they're even playing?

2) Give me an example of our Head of State doing the equivalent of this.


That's it. If you're so obviously justified, responding without namecalling should be simple for you.

Sorry, just don't care for your attitude. So you don't care for this particular insult.

Stop being a jackass about it. You sound like some Republican threatening to bomb Iran into being a democratic nation we can control.

I'm annoyed as the next person when it comes to nitpicking about trivial things, but this is a huge cultural faux-pas, one of the worst possible things you can do in a Muslim country. And the fact that it was a diplomat who did it is really inexcusable.

CheekyMonkey: In some cultures, burping after a meal is a sign of respect for the chef, in others, it's considered vulgar. Is either interpretation empirically correct? No.


Where does cropdusting fit in with this? Is there a culture where that is considered a stellar endorsement? Or is that too subtle and stealthy? Any cultures where a three alarm paint peeler is considered to say "My compliments to the chef!"?

This.

We didn't build the nation, we reconstructed it. HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE difference.

No, if anybody had read the link, they would be aware we didn't merely reconstuct Japan. We replaced the government and placed a multitude of military (and other) sanctions ensuring our safety and producing a more cohesive, united population in the aftermath of a terrible war. The very definition of nation building. why... do... I... continue... arguing...

And this coming from a culture whose people blow their noses onto the ground before going into a mosque to pray to Allah. No wonder Ahmadinejad was offended. The bottom of the diplomat's shoes were probably covered in snot rockets from the locals spewing their nostril semen all over the place.

bobbette: Cultural customs are cultural customs, people. It would be rude if someone came to America and picked their nose or scratched their ass while meeting with Obama.


Yes it would, but you wouldn't expect the prsident to furiously pick their nose back, do you?

bobbette: The Swedish ambassador did insult his hosts in the meeting. Given that he is a professional diplomat, he farked up


Nobody is doubting that, but it is still fair to point out this is a stupid insult that makes sitting in a circle comfotably (as well as many other interactions in any modern city) impossible, and that the presidents response was very childish.

We're no better. As a matter of fact, we can get much, much more immature over the pettiest of things.

Someone calls someone else a bad name and we go all apeshiat. A nipple shows up and we lament the horrors of sex. My precious snowflake hurt herself on the playground, let's ban playground equipment!

I have better reasons to not like certain cultures...this is a funnier one.

stoning girls, lack of education, inequality, boys as sex toys (but it's not homosexual; it's the way it is), etc., etc.
