Jordanian MP Pulls a Gun on Political Critic on Live TV

Mohammed Shawabka a Jordanian member of parliament in a heated political discussion on live TV, threw a shoe and subsequently pulled a gun on his opponent, political activist Mansour Sayf al-Din Mura.  The duo were in the middle of a  debate discussing Jordan’s policies toward Syria on a television show on Friday.

When the discussion became heated, both men began hurling insults, including working for the Israeli Mossad Intelligence Agency.

“You’re a Mossad agent,” one of the men said.

“You’re a big crook,” said the other.

The show’s host Mohammed Habashneh, who was seated between the two men, desperately told them to “calm down”.

But the MP pulled off his shoe and aimed it at his critic, who ducked underneath the desk and knocked it over.

Mr Shawabka then pulled out a silver gun before pointing it at the critic who was walking towards him.

The host tried to break up the fight by stepping between the two men, but the brawl reportedly continued for some time before the show’s producer started to roll the credits.
