Shoe-Throwing Iraqi Journalist Gets Job Offer, $10M Bid For Shoe Thrown At Bush
Baghdad, Iraq (AHN) -- The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at U.S. President Bush during a press conference in Baghdad has received offers of a job and $10 million for one of the shoes.
The Lebanese television channel NTV aired a bulletin on Monday saying that if Muntadhar al-Zeidi, 29, of the Al-Baghdadia TV channel takes its job offer, his salary will be retroactive to the day he threw his shoes at Bush. The incident happened on Sunday.
A manager of NTV also told Agence France-Press the TV station is willing to post bail for Zeidi should he decide to accept the job offer. Zeidi is currently under Iraqi police custody and is facing a two-year imprisonment for insulting a visiting head of state
Meanwhile, a 60-year-old Saudi entrepreneur was reported by Saudi media as offering $10 million for one of Zeidi's pair of shoes thrown at Bush.
An Iraqi businessman is also offering any price for the shoes while the technical director of the Iraqi football team Adnan Hamad offered $100,000 for the footwear that has become a symbol of the Iraqi people's disgust over what they see as Bush oppressive policies against them.
