The Smith and Wesson Debate School: Jordanian Member of Parliament Pulls Gun On Debate Opponents

Jordanian MP Mohammed Shawabka has a more direct method of debate that most politicians. During a television debate with an activist, Shawabka first throws a shoe at his opponent and than pulls a gun on him — pointing it at him on live television.

The activist Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad was arguing with Shawabka over attitudes surrounding the uprising in Syria. The debate quickly turns into name calling and recriminations, with one saying “You’re a Mossad agent” and the other saying “You’re a big crook.”

When the MP pulled the silver pistol, the activist did not back down and walked toward him leading to a struggle and fight on the set.

  1. LOL Mike A, or the Arkansas courtroom where the cops shot the Fire marshall:

    In this Sept. 1, 2009 photo, Crittenden County Sheriff’s Department Chief Investigator Thomas Martin discusses a Jericho, Ark., officer involved shooting in West Memphis, Ark. It was just too much, having to return to court twice on the same day to contest yet another traffic ticket, and Fire Chief Don Payne didn’t hesitate to tell the judge what he thought of the police and their speed traps. The response from cops? They shot him. Right there in court.

    (Huffington Post). Yes, the police shot him in open court because he was complaining about a speed trap.

  2. For a brief moment I thought the Arizona legislature was back in session.

  3. Hothead is MP what comes to mind. The moderator sure had his hands full and he didn’t step down. Good for him.

  4. He had a First Amendment right to throw the shoe on the show and a Second Amendment right to pull the gun just for fun.

  5. This nonsense seems bizarre and unprecedented until you recall the people in the USA who decided to ‘open carry’ guns outside of some Presidential events of Barack Obama or candidates advocating “second amendment remedies” for American political issues. Sadly, the extreme is now commonplace. Ask Ms. Giffords.

  6. Man, I bet Eric Cantor is looking for a guy with this sort of zeal to help him “rebuild” America!
