Met allows Islamic protesters to throw shoes
The Sunday Times - April 11, 2010
SCOTLAND YARD has bowed to Islamic sensitivities and accepted that
Muslims are entitled to throw shoes in ritual protest which could have
the unintended consequence of politicians or the police being hit.
News of the concession by the Metropolitan police has come to light amid
a series of trials of more than 70 mostly Muslim demonstrators who were
charged with violent disorder after last year’s Gaza protests outside the
Israeli embassy in London.
