It's being reported that Israelis are in a tizzy over the photo on the left of Pres. Hopey-Changey talking to Israeli PM Netanyahu.
"It is considered an insult in the Arab world to show the sole of your shoe to someone. It is not a Jewish custom necessarily, but Israel feels enough a part of the Middle East after 60 years to be insulted too"
Ok, I get it, but to me, it's a little petty.
Here is what has me a little pissed.
That desk that Hopey Changey happens to have his feet on is the Resolute Desk, one of the, if not the most historic piece of furniture in the United States. Why would anyone put their feet up on that piece of history?
What's next? Light your cigarette at the John Kennedy grave torch?
