Shane Mage:
As I learned in Morocco 50 years ago, in an Islamic culture to put  
one's shoe in one's hand is a severely threatening gesture and to  
throw it is a gesture expressing unmitigated contempt...
 
To chuck your shoes at someone's head, full tilt, is too speak in language that transends cultural distinctions.
