Gaza TV Debate Ends With Journalist Throwing Chair

Posted: Updated:

The attack on Gaza is a globally divisive issue, most acutely felt in the region. This was evident in a recent debate on Jordanian TV, which touched not only the Israeli offensive but also the similarly discordant topic of Syria.

This proved too much for journalist Shaker al-Johari, who decided the best way to solve the dispute, was to throw first water and then a chair at his opponent, lawyer and activist Samih Khrais. The host did his utmost to separate the stocky aggressor from his slighter nemesis. To conclude the brawl, al-Johari tossed a pen and then adjusted his trousers.

So… that’s peace in the Middle East sorted.
