Chuck your shoe at a politician

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.
