No, these shoes do not have 'Allah' and 'Mohammed' written on them

A photo posted on Facebook and shared more than 200,000 times purports to show shoes made by an Israeli company with “Allah” and “Mohammed” inscribed on them. The same photo has been used repeatedly for a decade on many social media platforms and blog pages in multiple languages to make similar claims about the words on the soles, but saying that the shoes were made by Nike or Puma. None of the claims are true; the photo is a manipulated image based on an original published by Getty Images in 2008 from a protest by Palestinians against then-US president George W. Bush.
