Free Muntazir Az Zaydi sign now

George Bush's farewell speech in Iraq was interrupted by Iraq Journalist Muntazir Az Zaydi brought the proceedings to a momentary standstill when he threw both of his shoes at the President, saying in Arabic "This is the Farewell Kiss from the Iraqis, O Dog.", and dedicating his act to the "widows, the orphans and those killed in Iraq". There has been a lot of buzz on the net over the incident, and many around the world, who have long opposed the war against Iraq have enjoyed Mr. Az Zaydi's act of defiance. Throwing shoes is an Arabic expression of contempt. Shoes are not WMD. In fact, they are not stones, not arrows, not knives or swords or guns or IEDs. They are just shoes.
It was a symbolic act similar to acts by American activists. The difference is, that according to Mr. Az Zaydi's family and friends, he has disappeared. I fear to think that while we enjoy passing around his message, Mr. Muntazir is being tortured in a prison in Iraq. This is unacceptable. If George Bush wants to pat himself on the back for bringing 'Democracy' to Iraq, then now is the time to prove it. Protect Iraqi rights to free speech. We demand that George Bush immediately have Muntazir Az Zaydi released from prison.

    Bush's action to pardon and free Muntazir Az-Zaydi will perhaps be the singular deed of decency during the last eight years of his Presidency; and it might just enhance his stature a bit.

    Under the circumstances, not reacting to the presence and words of the man responsible for such widespread death and devestation would be something of a tacit approval. Under the circumstances Muntazir emotional expression would seem appropriate and pardo

    We here in the USA profess to believe in the right of free speech. Please exhibit the understanding of this right and demand he be freed.

    George should sit down and talk to Muntazir and listen his complaints. It would be good PR for George in the eyes of the Muslim world.

    It's only a shame that he missed - Zaydi has thousands of supporters around the world, including the UK, where there are many who are ashamed to be associated with the criminal acts of Bush and Blair.
