I learned about this from a comment by an Assad supporter in some forum. It seems President Assad of Syria and his wife removed their shoes when visiting the families of wounded soldiers. He might be a brutal dictator who uses chemical weapons to kill his own people, but he at least shows some basic courtesies when visiting people on his own side. Make of that what you will. Far be it for me to make propaganda for nasty regimes.
