Mohammed Shawabka, Jordanian Parliament Member, Pulls Gun on Critic During TV Debate

by at . Comments

If you thought the floor of the U.S. Congress was a dysfunctional war zone, this may restore your faith in our government somewhat: Mohammed Shawabka, a member of Jordan's parliament, recently threw a shoe and pulled a gun in a LIVE TV debate.

Shawabka heaved his shoe and then pointed his piece at Mansour Seif-Eddine Murad, an activist-turned-politician, during a TV debate about the violence in Syria. 

You gotta see this:

Reports say heated words were exchanged, with Murad eventually accusing Shawabka of being an Israeli Mossad agent and a thief. That was the last straw.

Shawabka threw his shoe at Murad, who dodged with aplomb, and then pulled a gun. Furniture started flying and the terrified host tried to separate them.

And... end credits!

The AP reports that Shawabka is being investigated for his role in the altercation, which fortunately ended with no one injured or killed. Shocking.
