A Jordanian member of parliament has pulled a gun on one of his critics during a heated debate on live television.
Mohammed Shawabka was discussing Jordan’s policies toward Syria on a television show on Friday with political activist Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad, the Times of Israel reports.
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.
