People watching the Jordanian television network, 7 Stars, were treated to an all out war between journalists Shaker Al-Johari and Mohammed Al-Jayousi. The two men were debating over the ongoing Syrian crisis, when words turned to kicking and punching.
In the video, Mohammed Al-Jayousi (on the right) appeared to have provoked Al-Johari by calling a him ‘deviant’ for supporting the Syrian revolution.
Al-Johari responded by accusing Al-Jayousi of supporting the Syrian regime in exchange for money, to which Al-Jayousi responded, “Shut up”. That was about all Al-Johari could take. He then jumped up out of his chair and started to push the table toward Al-Jayousi, who pushed the table back. You can see the moderator trying, desperately, to break the two men apart.
Eventually the table rips in half and Al-Jayousi runs over to kick Al-Johari in the knee, just before the brawl is broken up.
The sixty second video brought me (and everybody in my office) to tears.
