The Daily Mail studies the sexual assault charges in Sweden which have landed Julian Assange in a worldwide hunt after his startling revelations against the American hegemony. The story is of two women who met up with Julian in August had mutual sex and two days later turn on him charging him with sexual assault. The story is shrouded in a mystery, quite possibly a sex trap laid out to nab Julian as at that time, the Americans were already feeling the heat of his upcoming release on WikiLeaks. He was arrested without bail in UK with a possibility of being extradited to Sweden (US and Sweden have some extraordinary extradition treaties so there is a definite possibility that American government might seek extradition beyond Sweden).

Video – Israel Ambassador to Sweden – Shoe’d
This video appears to be taken just after the shoe went flying out of control, as the students are irate, but very soon later two books are hurled at the podium and some hot words exchanged.

Shoe hurled at Israeli ambassador in Sweden
A woman in Sweden has thrown a shoe at the Israeli ambassador Benny Degan and it him in the chest as he was giving a lecture on Israel’s forthcoming elections. While another person hurled two books but unfortunately missed the dignitary.
Ylva Kornheffer, a board member of the Stockholm Association of Foreign Affairs, the student association which organised the seminar, said she was “sitting in the front row and suddenly a shoe was flying over my head”. “The girl who threw the shoe asked the policemen to give it back to her. It was a red Nike shoe,” The motive was believed to be a protest against Israel’s policy toward the Palestinians.
The two protesters, who were shouting insults, were then escorted out of the room by police. They were taken to a local police station but were released after being questioned. – It seems the new lethal weapon of choice is the ‘SHOE’
