Iraqi shoe thrower is world’s 3rd most powerful Arab
The Iraqi journalist who hurled a shoe at President George W Bush has been named as the world’s third most powerful Arab, in a list to be published by Arabian Business.
The annual Power 100 guide to the world’s most influential Arabs places Muntadar Al Zaidi as the highest new entry in this year’s list.
Al Zaidi is currently serving a three year jail term in Iraq following the shoe throwing incident last December.
The Power 100 list says Al Zaidi has “inspired, influenced and angered millions around the world”.
