MP pulls gun during live TV debate
An MP threw his shoe at an opponent during a live television debate in Jordan and then pulled a pistol on him.
The show became heated when Jordanian MP Mohammed Shawabka accused former deputy Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad of working as a spy for the Syrian regime.
It led to an exchange of insults and counter accusations before Shawabka stood up and hurled his shoe at Murad.
In an extraordinary turn of events, he then pulled a pistol from his jacket and threatened his opposite number on the show.
Fortunately, show host Mohammed Hasbashneh stepped in and managed to briefly separate the two.
Unsurprisingly, the debate was abruptly stopped and taken off air by Jordanian satellite channel Gosat as the scuffle continued.

have you never had a scuffle with anyone?
dear orange - thanks for the censorship. No swearwords, no insults, just the truth about islam. and you delete me. Cowards!
I'd say it was hardly the truth but a mere opinion. If you want to discover the truth visit your local mosque and witness the tranquility. For everyone who p'd henry VII off he chopped off their head islam doesn't promote violence infact it condemns it!
