Jordanian MP Pulls A Gun On Political Activist During Live Talk Show

In what may just be the most heated television discussion we’ve ever seen, an activist had a shoe thrown and him and then a gun pointed at him by a Jordanian MP.

The Times of Israel has some details about the confrontation between MP Mohammed Shawabka and a political activist and former MP named Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad, which allegedly began when talking about the violence in Syria and they called each other a “big crook” and a “Mossad agent”.

Egyptian news agency Ahram seems to say that Shawabka became enraged when Murad insulted his family.
