Obama Effigy to Get the Shoe

Obama Effigy to Get the Shoe at Monday's Demo at US Embassy

by Gil Ronen

Jewish protests against the the United States are usually polite affairs while Muslim protests often involve effigy-burning, shoe-stomping and other forms of acting out. However, a protest planned for 7:00 p.m. Monday outside the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv could be a sign that Jews have begun taking some pages from the Muslim protesters' book. The event's organizers say they have prepared a large effigy of U.S. President Barack Obama, which protesters will hurl shoes at to protest the way Obama is “stepping all over us.”

“The current American government’s feeble Middle Eastern policy has ultimately caused a substantial amount of damage to the State of Israel,” the organizers stated. “The policies, which are based on appeasing the Islamic states, have unsurprisingly increased hostility and tension in the region.”

The activists accuse the US of “blackmailing” Israel's leaders, "violating agreements" and lacking even “an ounce of regard towards the safety of Israeli citizens.”..
