Several dozen Palestinian journalists took off their shoes on Thursday in a protest in Bethlehem's Manger Square. The demonstration was a show of support for Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi journalist who hurled his shoes at US President George W. Bush earlier this week. His Palestinian colleagues waved Palestinian and Iraqi flags. They also held signs in English, reading "Bush deserved it." The shoe toss triggered an outpouring of support for al-Zeidi.
