How to Worship God in truth and in spirit?


This Jesus told the Pious Samaritan woman at well, John 4, who had overpowered all the Five Temptations that originate from the heart and these are well-known in India as 1. KAAM – Immorality in ego, 2. KARODHH – Anger that is displayed by the once-born people who think they are wiser than the rest; Ego related, 3. LOBHH – Greed displayed by the twice-born people of the evil spirit who misuse holy spirit, “common sense” to cheat the simpletons, which is “evil spirit”; mind related, 4. MOH – worldly attraction, the third temptation of Satan to Jesus; forget about God, I will give you all the secular kingdoms if you serve me, which the Pope did; it is of the twice-born people who are deeply attached to the secular affairs not willing to spend time serving God as Matthew did by disposing his wealth to the poor and the fifth and the last of all 5. HANKAAR – Haughtiness – ego - of the spiritual knowledge in the dead letters as the Professors at Jerusalem University and the present men of letters display and they would not listen to people of holy spirit, who learn spiritual knowledge through logical reasoning as the Samaritan woman had and she was capable of vetting Jesus in holy spirit, which the Jerusalem theologian felt insulting to them. This was the last husband living with her but no more dominating. She was St. Photina and her whole village became Apostles or Jesus Harvested a very heavy Crop from this village, the Labour of the local Rabbi who was enlightened.


Thus, it is not easy to worship God and for this, you need to be truthful or whatever you see with your two naked eyes, you describe it and your third eye of logical reasoning should not twist the logic of our Father for his own praises but glorify our Father in honour of our Bridegroom Christ Jesus. Such a person is cleansed of the physical body as Jesus told Peter that your head and hands do not need washing; they are already clean to enter the Bridal Chamber. The mind of Judas Iscariot wasnt clean as he was stealing money from the Purse as these hireling Dog-Collared Priests of dead letters do in the Churches as their salaries; they are working for Mammon and get paid in Mammon and not the Gospel Treasures.


Now, Law and Prophets were till John, the Baptist – Luke 16v16. Transgression against the moral laws, the Letters is a “Sin” if done in ignorance but if you are twice-born and do commit sins knowingly, then it is the transgression against the Holy Spirit that rests in your heart and not in the holy books, the dead letters. In short, the Rabbis taught the once-born natural Disciples the Moral Laws of Moses for the Kingdom of heaven that is seen in the law and order but as the Rabbis became hypocrite Blasphemers going against the moral laws, then Christ Jesus appeared to expose those hypocrites, which the once-born people dare not speak against their Ruling Rabbis.


Thus, those who enter the Narrow Gate leading to the Royal Vineyard of our Father where the True Vine Christ Jesus is planted being truthful and what is inside is outside like the little children who speak the truth and nothing else but truth, they are capable of entering the One Fold, Church of God that is headed by Christ Jesus whose flesh is our daily bread of life for the sons of God. On the contrary, those who are blasphemers and cheat people with full knowledge of heart as displayed by the two Ananias and Sapphira that St. Peter killed for being the blasphemers, they belong to the fold of Satan and as they have left their Supernatural Father of our souls to take over the colour of Satan, they are Super Bastard Fanatic Devils as described by Jesus in John 8v44 against the natural bastard that the woman caught in adultery would have produced; John 8v41 You are doing the works of your own father, the head of hypocrites, the Satan.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me as the Samaritans did honour me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you as it were to the sensible Tax collectors and Samaritans who listened to me attentively? Because you belong to the Fold of Satan and, therefore, you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your fathers desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why dont you believe me? 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God but to the Super Bastard Satan.”


In a Nutshell, the Royal Kingdom of God is for the sons of God and not for the super bastard sons of Satan, who are blasphemers telling lies from the cores of their hearts. These Dog-Collared Priests and the politicians head this list of Blasphemers.




On December 14, 2008, Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi threw both of his shoes at United States President George W. Bush during an Iraqi press conference. Bush quickly ducked, avoiding being hit by either of the shoes. The second shoe hit the US flag, and Al-Zaidi was subsequently grabbed, kicked, and hurried out of the room by guards. Effigies of many United States Presidents had long appeared with shoes on them all over the Middle East,[1] but it was not until this event that shoeing had received widespread notability. Since then, there have been many other shoeing incidents on an international scale. Al-Zaidi received a three-year prison sentence, which was reduced to two years. On September 15, 2009, after nine months of incarceration, he was released early because he had no prior criminal record.

American hypocrite President Bush and the British P.M. Tony Blair, they destroyed Iraq, Libya, etc. at the instructions of the real rulers of America holding Mammon and Media. How could you print In God we trust on the face of Mammon dollar? Here, in you say defunct prayer that used to be the demiurge Potter Yahweh whose last Prophet was John, the Baptist. After that we have Christ Jesus for the taste of the missing Oral Torah for Salvation.


Shoe throwing at Bush by the Soldier of God Elohim, Allah, Parbrahm, etc., a HERO.,Event,Bush.


During a December 14, 2008 press conference at the prime ministers palace in Baghdad, Iraq, Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi threw both of his shoes at United States President George W. Bush. Bush was scheduled to leave office roughly five weeks later, following the inauguration of his successor Barack Obama.[3] "This is a farewell kiss from the Iraqi people, dog", he yelled in Arabic as he threw his first shoe.[4] "This is for the widows and orphans and all those killed in Iraq," he shouted as he threw his second shoe.[4] President Bush ducked twice to avoid being hit by the shoes, and Prime Minister Maliki attempted to catch one of the shoes to protect him. Al-Zaidi was pulled to the floor[5] before being grabbed by Prime Minister Malikis guards, kicked, and rushed out of the room. White House Press Secretary Dana Perino was hit in the face by a microphone boom knocked over by a presidential bodyguard, resulting in a black eye.[6]

Video of the incident

President Bush said that some Iraqi reporters had apologized to him. "Thanks for apologizing on behalf of the Iraqi people. It doesnt bother me," he said. "If you want the facts, its a size 10 shoe that he threw." When asked about the incident by another reporter, President Bush said, "Its a way for people to draw attention. I dont know what the guys cause was. I didnt feel the least bit threatened by it."[7] When later asked to reflect on the incident, President Bush said, "I didnt have much time to reflect on anything, I was ducking and dodging. Im not angry with the system. I believe that a free society is emerging, and a free society is necessary for our own security and peace."[8] Perino said: "I dont think that you can take one guy throwing his shoe as representative of the people of Iraq."[9]

"Bush-Maliki News Conference. Baghdad, December 2008" 2009 by Dmitry Borshch

Al-Zaidi was initially held by the prime ministers guards and was later turned over to the Iraqi armys Baghdad command. The command handed him over to the Iraqi judiciary. Hundreds took to the streets to demand his release.[11] Al-Zaidi could have faced charges of insulting a foreign leader and the Iraqi prime minister. A conviction of these charges could have carried a sentence of up to two years in prison or a small fine, although it would have been unlikely to face the maximum penalty given his newfound "cult status" in the Arab world, according to a Middle-East observer.[12] An Iraqi lawyer stated that al-Zaidi was likely to get at least two years in prison if he was prosecuted.[13] Al-Zaidi went before a judge on December 17, 2008. He declined to be represented by Khalil al-Duleimi, who defended the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein before his execution, and also said that he wanted to be represented by an Iraqi lawyer.[14] "I will introduce myself as his lawyer and demand the case be closed and Muntader be released because he did not commit a crime," said Dheyaa al-Saadi, al-Zaidis lawyer and head of the Iraqi Bar Association. "He only freely expressed himself to the occupier, and he has such a right according to international law."[15] On December 17, 2008, al-Zaidi appeared privately before a judge from within the Green Zone.




Following the incident, The New York Times reported that Al-Zaidi was embraced around the Arab world.[16] Al-Zaidi found support from his employer, Awn Hussain Al Khashlok,[17] thousands of protesters in Iraq,[16][18] some Iraqi politicians,[19][20] people in Syria,[16] a charity in Libya,[21] and from "around 200 lawyers" including some U.S. citizens.[13] Al-Zaidis action was criticised by the government of Nouri al-Maliki.[22] After the incident the office of Nouri al-Maliki criticised al-Zaidis action and "demanded" an on-air apology from Al-Baghdadia TV.[22] Al-Baghdadia TV issued a statement demanding al-Zaidis release:[17]


Al-Baghdadia television demands that the Iraqi authorities immediately release their stringer Muntadhar al-Zaidi, in line with the democracy and freedom of expression that the American authorities promised the Iraqi people on the ousting of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.... Any measures against Muntadar will be considered the acts of a dictatorial regime.[13][18]


In Tikrit a copper statue of three meters height was dedicated to his action as a monument. It had his shoes shape and an honouring poem as an inscription. It was designed by Laith al-Amari.[23] The statue was taken down according to police order shortly after erection.[24] Al Zaidi has been named as the worlds third most powerful Arab, in the Arabian Business Power 100 list 2009.[25]


A joke that was made amongst Iraqis stated that then Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, should be "called up" to the national football team as a goalkeeper as his attempt of blocking the shoe was made "masterfully".[26]


In September 2009, London-based artist Pawel Waniewski created Proud Shoes in tribute to Muntazer al-Zaidis shoe flying incident. Waniewskis tribute to Mr. al-Zaidis was a 21kg bronze piece of art depicting the thrown shoes, completely gilded in 24 carat gold.[27]


On 3 March 2010, Blancox, a Colombian detergent manufacturer made an advertisement out of the shoe-throwing incident, by replacing the shoes with beautiful bouquets of flowers to signify fabric freshness and softness treasured in it.[28]


Malcolm Smart of Amnesty International said "the Iraqi authorities have a duty to investigate all allegations of torture or other ill-treatment of Muntadhar al-Zaidi and to prosecute any persons alleged to be responsible for such abuses. The Iraqi authorities should also disclose his whereabouts, ensure that he is permitted prompt and regular access to legal counsel, his family and to any medical attention he requires, and safeguard him from torture or other ill-treatment," he added.[29]


Reporters Without Borders expressed its "regret that [al-Zaidi] used this method of protest against the politics of the American president". It said that "[al-Zaidi] was clearly injured during his arrest" and called for him to be released from custody. It referred to Bushs "relaxed way" of speaking about the incident as a reason for "leniency".[30]


The International Federation of Journalists has said al-Zaidi should be released for humanitarian reasons. "Given the controversy surrounding this incident, we urge the Iraqi security services to guarantee the physical well-being of this journalist, who was clearly injured during his arrest," the statement said. The IFJ said the incident "reflected deep anger at the treatment of Iraqi civilians during US occupation over the past four years of which journalists have been major victims" and that "the journalist might be under threat while in detention "given the record of mistreatment of journalists in custody by US forces."[31]


The Arab Lawyers Union has called for a fair trial for the journalist, with the support of both the Arab League and the Egyptian government. "We urge all human rights organizations and the international society to help save the life of the Iraqi journalist and prevent any physical assault that may target him," union head Sameh Ashour said.[32] Ashour said the union would protect al-Zaidis life, "which at the moment is under threat."[33]


The Lebanese television channel NTV offered a job to al-Zaidi. NTV said that if al-Zaidi accepted the job offer, that he would be paid "from the moment the first shoe was thrown".[34]


Al-Zaidis family turned down an invitation by the Venezuelan President to come and live in the Latin American country. "We are grateful to President Hugo Chávez. However we are Iraqis, we live in Iraq," Oudai al-Zaidi said speaking on the behalf of his family.[14]


Former candidate for the President of Pakistan and President of the Pakistan Jurists Association Mian Muhibullah Kakakhel Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of Pakistan said that the action showed how much the international community hates George W. Bush.[35]


On December 15, 2008, al-Zaidi was given a bravery award by Libyan charity group Wa Attassimou. The group urged for al-Zaidis release.[16][21]


In Syria, al-Zaidi was "hailed as a hero".[16] The Malaysian Foreign Minister Rais Yatim, praised the incident, calling it the "best show of retaliation so far".[36] A commentary in the North Korean newspaper Minju Chosun said Bush "deserved" the shoe throwing incident as a result of "failed policy in Iraq".[37]


Al-Zaidi has also been offered a six-door Mercedes,[38] had a song written about him,[39] had his incident reconstructed in an Afghan comedy sketch,[40] and been offered the hand of a mans 20-year-old daughter in marriage.[41] The young woman Amal Saad Gumaa said she likes the idea of being attached to a man she finds so honourable.[42]


On December 29, 2008, activists at the Iraqi consulate in Washington, D.C. delivered a petition calling for the release of al-Zaidi. "If he had wanted to hurt George Bush, he would have chosen a different weapon," a member of Code Pink said. "We want the Iraqi government and the world to know that there is a very good sentiment for him to be set free," said Nick Mottern, director of Consumers for Peace.[43]


The incident has inspired several online shoe-throwing games.[44]


The Late Show with David Letterman "Great Moments in Presidential Speeches" segment included flying shoes aimed at other presidents (via digitally-altered stock footage).[citation needed]


The Turkish company believed to have made the shoes thrown at Bush, Ramazan Baydan, experienced a surge in sales. Orders for 300,000 pairs were received in one week.[45] A Saudi businessman offered US$10 million to buy the shoes thrown by al-Zaidi.[46] There were also calls from throughout the Middle East to place the shoes in an Iraqi museum.[47][48] The shoe, Ducati Model 271, first renamed "The Bush Shoe" and later "The Bye-Bye Bush Shoe", is manufactured by the Baydan Shoe Company in Istanbul.[49] However, a producer in Lebanon suggested that it might have made them instead. Many shoes in Iraq are also made in China. Even so, al-Zaidis brother insisted that the shoes were made in Baghdad by a highly-reputable firm named Alaa Haddad.[50] On December 18, 2008, Iraqi and American security agents looking for explosives examined and then destroyed the shoes.[10]


A book was written on the event called "The Last Salute to President Bush".[51]


Mahesh Bhatt produced a play entitled "The Last Salute", directed by Indian director Arvind Gaur and starring Imran Zahid. It was written by Rajesh Kumar and based on Muntadhar al-Zaidis book. Pooja Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt announced the making of a film based on the play. "Bush-Maliki News Conference. Baghdad, December 2008", a drawing by Dmitry Borshch, has been exhibited at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, DePaul University, Brecht Forum and is included in the Catalog of American Portraits, maintained by the Smithsonians National Portrait Gallery (United States).[52][53][54]




According to witnesses, al-Zaidi was "severely beaten" by security officers after he had been dragged out of the room following the shoe-throwing incident.[16] As the mans screaming could be heard outside, Bush said "Thats what people do in a free society, draw attention to themselves."[3] A "large blood trail" could be seen on the carpet where al-Zaidi had been dragged by security agents.[22][55] Dawa-owned Afaq TV reported that security forces kicked al-Zaidi and beat him.[3] His family reports that it has received many threatening phone calls.[56] The United States Secret Service and the Iraqi Police took custody of al-Zaidi.[57] Al-Zaidi was tested for alcohol and drugs, and his shoes were confiscated as evidence.[18] Al-Zaidi was interrogated by Iraqi and U.S. agents to ascertain whether anyone paid him to throw his shoes at Bush.[58] In an interview with BBC News, al-Zaidis brother, Durgham al-Zaidi, reported that Muntadhar al-Zaidi suffered a broken hand, broken ribs, internal bleeding, and an eye injury.[59] Durgham al-Zaidi told Al Jazeera that his brother was tortured.[60] Al-Baghdadia TV said that al-Zaidi was "seriously injured" during his detention.[60] Al Sharqiya also points to signs of injury on his thighs and an immobile right arm. However, a different brother, Maitham al-Zaidi, spoke with Muntadhar on the phone and was told: "Thank God I am in good health."[58] On Friday 19 December Dhia al-Kinani, the judge investigating the case, said there were signs al-Zaidi had been beaten; al-Zaidi had bruises on his face and around his eyes.[61] The judge also said al-Zaidi had not yet raised a formal charge relating to his injuries.[61] His lawyer, Dhiyaa al-Saadi, has also confirmed that al-Zaidi had been beaten, stating that "there are visible signs of torture on his body".[62]



On December 14, 2008, the shoe-throwing incident took place, culminating in al-Zaidis arrest.

On December 15, 2008, hundreds of Iraqis marched in Baghdad to demand his release. Crowds gathered in Sadr City district of Baghdad and called for "hero" Muntadhar al-Zaidi to be freed from custody. There were similar scenes in Najaf.[16][18] The demonstrators in Sadr City and Najaf alluded to the shoes. Participants in Sadr City "waved shoes attached to long poles," and those in Najaf threw their shoes at a passing United States military convoy.[16][18] The "vast majority" of viewers of al-Baghdadia who telephoned to the station in order to express their opinions said that they approved al-Zaidis actions.[16]

On December 17, 2008, a group of Iraqi lawmakers demanded that the legislature take up the issue of the detained journalist. Aqeel Abdul Hussain, head of the Sadrist bloc, said that lawmakers had a duty to stand up for the detained journalist.[19] "Some of the members support the government, but we have to admit that there was a mistake in the procedures under which he was arrested," said a spokesman for Parliament Speaker Mashhadani. "And we also must condemn the fact that he was beaten," he added. The session of Parliament ended without a consensus on what action to take regarding the reporter.[20]

On December 18, 2008, a spokesman for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said that al-Zaidi wrote a letter to Maliki expressing regret for his actions and asking for a pardon. Dhargham al-Zaidi claims that his brother was severely beaten after being taken into Iraqi custody.[63] On December 17, Amnesty International called on Iraqi authorities to disclose the whereabouts of al-Zaidi and investigate all allegations of torture or other ill-treatment.[29] Judge Dhia al-Kinani, the magistrate investigating the incident, said the court has opened a probe into al-Zaidis alleged beating.[64] Dhiaa al-Saadi, head of the Iraqi Bar Association, said that, according to court documents, the reporters face and body were bruised.[65] "The investigation process is now under way in mysterious circumstances," al-Zaidis brother Uday said.[64]

On December 19, 2008, thirty of al-Zaidis family members staged a rally outside the "Green Zone," which houses the Iraqi government and the prison where al-Zaidi was being held. In response to an apology letter that al-Zaidi was said to have written, al-Zaidis brother Uday stated that the apology was "not a real one. If they [the government] want an apology, they must first release him so he can do it freely and not under pressure." Um Saad, al-Zaidis sister, said that al-Zaidi "would never apologize for insulting the man who occupied our country".[66] She also said that "nothing is known about... his condition, but he did nothing wrong. On the contrary, he pleased everyone. Bush is an occupier and he is the source of all the orphans and all the widows in Iraq."[67] Bahaa al-Araji, a Sadrist MP, said journalist Muntathir al-Zaidi plans to press charges against the people who he says beat him. "We know that the judges themselves feel for him... tomorrow we will submit a formal request that Zaidi should be allowed visits by his family," he also said. "We should call him Muntathar al Iraqi — not Muntathar al-Zaidi; all of Iraq is his tribe now," a leader in the Sons of Iraq movement said of al-Zaidi.[66]

On December 20, 2008, it was reported that the letter that al-Zaidi is said to have written to Nouri al-Maliki apologizes only to Maliki and not to George W. Bush. Al-Zaidi said he had no remorse for throwing his shoes at Bush and "added that he would repeat his actions if he sees him again, because Bushs forces have killed many of Iraqs children". In a written statement to the judge, al-Zaidi said that he expected to be killed by Bushs body guards after hurling his first shoe. "It seemed that his bodyguards were not on full alert at the time, that was how I managed to throw the second shoe," al-Zaidi explained.[68] Also, hundreds of protesters gathered in a park opposite the Green Zone to protest the treatment of al-Zaidi. Heavily armed Iraqi soldiers surrounded the small park and Iraqi Army helicopters circled overhead as the demonstrators were demanded to leave. "I have told them I wont move anywhere unless it is to my grave," said al-Zaidis brother, Uday. Sunnis and Shiites held signs describing al-Zaidi as "the son of Iraq" and "the humiliator of the occupiers". A few Iraqi soldiers ate food offered to them.[69]

On December 21, 2008, al-Zaidi claimed he was physically coerced and that he would never apologize to President Bush no matter what the consequences. "Muntadhar said that he was forced to apologize to Al-Maliki and he will never, never apologize to Bush, even if they cut him into small pieces," al-Zaidis brother Uday told the Los Angeles Times. Al-Zaidis brother claimed his journalist brother had lost a tooth and his nose had required stitches because of the beatings he had suffered while in custody. "There were multiple bruises all over his body," he said. "There were cigarette burns behind his ears. He was beaten with metal rods. His eyes were swollen. They have assigned two medical doctors ... to provide him with treatment in order to hide the evidence of torture."[70] Al-Zaidis brother said his jailers periodically demanded he "confess" that he had been ordered to commit the act by enemies of the prime minister, but that a letter to the prime minister written by him from jail expressing regret for the attack was not said to have been ordered.[71] Maliki reiterated that Zaidis television station should renounce the act of al-Zaidi,[72] and also suggested, without providing any names, that "a person urged him to commit this act, and this person is known to us as a person who beheads people".[71] U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice argued that Iraq is a democracy and that "history always shows these things differently than todays news."[73] An Iranian deputy minister called for al-Zaidis release.[74]

On December 22, 2008, al-Zaidis lawyer Dhiyaa al-Saadi also confirmed that al-Zaidi had been beaten and that al-Zaidi said he would never apologize to President Bush.[75] Abdulsattar al-Berikdar, a spokesman of the Iraqi Supreme Judicial Council, said the court was not investigating allegations of torture because al-Zaidi did not ask to be "submitted to a medical committee and did not tell the judge that he was tortured or register a complaint against anyone."[76] Hajar Smouni, a spokesperson for Doha Center for Media Freedom in Qatar, argued that al-Zaidi should be given access to medical care and a fair trial. Smouni said it was positive he met a lawyer, but said it is worrying "that he is to be tried at the Central Criminal Court of Iraq, because that is a court used to try terrorism suspects".[75]

On December 23, 2008, the Iraqi Parliament accepted the resignation of its speaker, Mahmoud al-Mashhadani. Part of the controversy for his resignation began with his refusing to allow discussion of the fate of Muntadhar al-Zaidi. The speaker described al-Zaidi as "the pride" of Iraq and said that his "best friends" were currently being detained by the United States military for ties to the insurgency. "I weep for the state of Iraq," he told the Iraqi Parliament in his resignation.[77]

On January 16, 2009, al-Zaidis brother visited him for 2 hours and Iraqi prison guards threw him a surprise birthday party.[78]

On January 19, 2009, the Swiss newspaper Tribune de Geneve reported that al-Zaidi was seeking political asylum in Switzerland, where his lawyer said he might work as a journalist at the United Nations.[79]

On January 28, 2009, Muntadhar al-Zaidi cast his vote from prison.[80]

On January 29, 2009, A monument of a shoe was erected in honour of Muntadhar al-Zaidi in an orphanage in Tikrit.[81] The orphans helped to build the structure.[82]

On January 30, 2009, the monument that was erected in honour of Muntadhar al-Zaidi was taken down after requests from the central government.[83] Iraqi police visited the location to make sure that the shoe monument was removed. "We will not allow anyone to use the government facilities and buildings for political motives," Abdullah Jabara, deputy governor of Salaheddin argued. Faten Abdulqader al-Naseri, the orphanage director, said "Those orphans who helped the sculptor in building this monument were the victims of Bushs war. The shoe monument is a gift to the next generation to remember the heroic action by the journalist."[84]

On February 19, 2009, al-Zaidi told the Baghdad Central Criminal Court that he acted spontaneously after listening to Bush praise the "achievements" made in Iraq: "While he was talking I was looking at all his achievements in my mind. More than a million killed, the destruction and humiliation of mosques, violations against Iraqi women, attacking Iraqis every day and every hour. A whole people are saddened because of his policy, and he was talking with a smile on his face – and he was joking with the prime minister and saying he was going to have dinner with him after the press conference. Believe me, I didnt see anything around me except Bush. I was blind to anything else. I felt the blood of the innocent people bleeding from beneath his feet and he was smiling in that way. And then he was going to have a dinner, after he destroyed one million martyrs, after he destroyed the country. So I reacted to this feeling by throwing my shoes. I couldnt stop the reaction inside me. It was spontaneous."[85]

On February 20, 2009, al-Zaidi received a 90-minute trial by the Central Criminal Court of Iraq.[86]

On March 12, 2009, he was sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting a foreign head of state during an official visit.

On April 7, the sentence was reduced to one year from three years.[87]

On September 15, 2009, he was released for good behavior, after serving nine months of the sentence.[88][89]

In 2018, Muntadhar al-Zaidi announced he was running for the Iraqi council of representatives. He did not gain a significant number of votes on the May 12th election.


Al-Zaidi appeared before a judge (not in court but in jail over fears that his injuries could cause anger amongst the public if he were to appear in court)[citation needed] on December 16, 2008, and admitted "aggression against a president." The court decided to keep him in custody. A spokesman for the Iraqi court said that al-Zaidi would face charges of attacking a head of state.[90] Dheyaa al-Saadi, the head of the Iraqi Bar Association and one of its most high-profile attorneys, said that he had volunteered to defend al-Zaidi.[91] Judge Dhiya al-Kenani said the court had refused the journalists request for bail "for the sake of the investigation and for his own security".[92] According to Abdul Satar Birqadr, spokesman for Iraqs High Judicial Council, al-Zaidi is charged with "assaulting a foreign head of state visiting Iraq."[93]


On December 30, 2008, an Iraqi court said al-Zaidis trial had been postponed pending an appeal over whether the incident amounted to assault or only insulting a foreign leader. A charge of assault would carry a maximum sentence of 15 years, while charges of insulting a foreign leader carry a maximum sentence of only 3 years. One of al-Zaidis lawyers said he expected a lengthy trial and a sentence of no less than three years if al-Zaidi is convicted. Dhargham al-Zaidi, said his family would turn to an international court if they found the Iraqi jurisdiction system "biased and unfair."[94] In January 2009, al-Zaidis lawyers petitioned Swiss authorities for political asylum, arguing that his life is at risk in Iraq.[95]


The trial began before the Central Criminal Court of Iraq on February 20, 2009, which only lasted 90 minutes[86] before being recessed.[96] In testimony before the court, al-Zaidi described his growing frustration as Bush spoke about his victories and achievement at the press conference where the shoe was thrown. As Bush listed the gains made in Iraq during the mid-December news conference, al-Zaidi said he was thinking about the sanctity of mosques being violated, the rape of women, and daily humiliations.[97] Al-Zaidi said Bushs "bloodless and soulless smile" and his joking banter provoked him. "I dont know what accomplishments he was talking about. The accomplishments I could see were the more than 1 million martyrs and a sea of blood. There are more than 5 million Iraqi orphans because of the occupation.... More than a million widows and more than 3 million displaced because of the occupation." al-Zaidi said.[97] "I wanted to restore the pride of the Iraqis in any way possible, apart from using weapons." al-Zaidi said he was tortured, beaten and given electric shocks during his interrogation. Supporters who rallied in front of the court said al-Zaidi should be praised for standing up to Bush rather than punished for his actions.[98] The trial resumed[96] briefly[99] on March 12, 2009, after which sentence was imposed.



On March 12, 2009, al-Zaidi was sentenced to three years of prison for assaulting a foreign leader; under the law he was charged under, he could have faced up to 15 years in prison for assaulting a visiting head of state during an official visit.[100] His lawyers indicated they expect to appeal the sentence.[100] Dhia Al Saadi, the head of Zaidis defense team and the Iraqi Lawyers Syndicate, argued that "the court sessions should be made public according to the Iraqi penalties law.[101] "This sentence is harsh and is not in harmony with the law, and eventually the defense team will contest this in the appeals court," Dhia Al Saadi further said.[102] Court spokesman Abdul-Sattar Bayrkdar said al-Zaidi received the minimum prison sentence possible under the Saddam Hussein-era law he was charged under and that al-Zaidi could appeal the courts decision.[100]


Upon reading of the sentence, al-Zaidi shouted "long live Iraq."[100] "This judiciary is not just,"[100] al-Zaidis brother Dargham said. Zaidis sister shouted "Down with Maliki, the agent of the Americans."[102] Zaidis brother Uday said he scorns "those who say Iraqi justice is independent" and that the "court was set up according to Paul Bremer decisions."[103] Several family members screamed: "Its an American court... sons of dogs."[104] The family said they would not only appeal but also press ahead with plans to bring torture charges against Bush, Maliki and his bodyguards at a human rights court abroad.[104]


A poll of Iraqis suggested 62 percent of Iraqis regarded al-Zaidi as a "hero".[100] Maha al-Dori, an Iraqi parliament member, said he felt the ruling showed the judges may have been motivated by political concerns.[105] Iraqs Journalistic Freedoms Observatory said "it is now left to wait for a presidential or prime ministerial pardon, because we cannot accept an Iraqi journalist behind bars."[106]


On April 7, 2009, the sentence was reduced to one year from three years.[87] Judge Abdul Sattar al-Beeraqdar, spokesman for Iraqs Higher Judicial Council, said the court reduced al-Zaidis sentence because he is young and had no previous criminal record.[107] Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki argued al-Zaidi could have faced 15 years in jail or even execution for insulting a visiting head of state.[108]



Defense attorney Karim al-Shujairi said al-Zaidi would be released on September 14, 2009, after spending nine months in jail, he would be freed early for good behavior.[109] He was released on September 15, 2009, claiming that he had been systematically tortured during his time in jail and one of his front teeth was seen missing. Al-Zaidi said that he had been beaten with electric cables and iron bars and immersed in cold water. On 19 October 2009, while in Switzerland where he expected to have medical treatment for his injuries, he stated, "I suffered a great deal. I still have problems with my teeth, back and other parts of my body where I was tortured."[110] Al-Zaidi also declared, "I am free again, but my homeland is still a prison."[111] On September 15, 2009, al-Zaidi stated "I am not a hero, and I admit that ... I am a person with a stance. I saw my country burning."[112]


Statements following his release

In an interview which aired on Egypts Dream 2 TV on June 12, 2010, Al-Zaidi stated that it was because of "Bushs bloodthirsty nature" that the former president visited Haiti following a massive earthquake. Al-Zaidi claimed that "Bush did not go there for the sake of human rights or for the victims. He went there because he missed the smell of blood, and the stench of destruction that he wreaked on Iraq. So he went there to get a whiff of that smell, because he is a sick man."


Regarding the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, Al-Zaidi stated in the same interview that:


We have a saying in Iraqi Arabic – and Im sure the Egyptian brothers living in Iraq know it. "Away goes a white dog, and along comes a black dog." They are the same, except for the color. Away goes a white US president, and along comes a black president. They are no different.[113]


Following his release, al-Zaidi went to Geneva and announced that he had started creating a humanitarian agency/foundation. The aim of the agency would be to "build orphanages, a childrens hospital, and medical and orthopaedic centres offering free treatment and manned by Iraqi doctors and medical staff."[110] His lawyer said that al-Zaidi "hopes to surf on the wave of support he has gained to do some good."[110]



After the attacks, the incident was parodied numerous times on the internet. These included online games such as "Sock and Awe" and "Flying Babush", as well as gifs. Videos of the event went viral on YouTube.[114][115]
