War in Syria debate erupts as Jordanian journalists topple table

With all their political differences, I don’t remember if liberal Michael Kinsley and conservative Pat Buchanan ever flipped over tables during the heyday of CNN’s “Crossfire” in the 1980’s, but I expect not.

However, on a recent airing of the satellite program, “Seven Stars”, Jordanian journalists,  Shaker al-Johari and Mohammad al-Jayousi  were discussing the war in Syria between the rebels and the Asaad government when the exchange got heated.

Accusations started to fly at first– al-Jayousi accused al-Johari of supporting the Syrian rebels. Al-Johari then accused al-Jayousi of taking money for supporting Assad.

That’s when all hell broke loose in the studio. The studio table the men were sitting seemed to get in the way as they went after each other’s hides.

Over the course of the bruhaha, the top of the table broke off and the rest of it toppled as the moderator and studio workers tried to stop the fight and finally separated the two journalists.
