A Lebanese communist party activist takes part in a protest in front of the Iraqi Embassy in Beirut December 18, 2008 demanding the release of Iraqi TV reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi. Zaidi shot to fame when he called Bush a "dog" in Arabic at a joint news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in Baghdad last Sunday and threw both his shoes at Bush, a gesture that is a deep insult in the Arab world REUTERS/Jamal Saidi
