According to, as the debate heated up, Mohammed Shawabka threw his shoe at rival Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad. But things got much, much worse.

Shawabka pulled a gun on Sayf al-Din Murad, claiming he had insulted his mother. Shawabka could face serious charges as a result.  Makes the old west look pretty tame, huh?
