Following is an excerpt from a debate on Syria between two Lebanese politicians, which aired on Murr TV on November 14, 2011.
Mustafa Allouch, March 14 Alliance: Dr. Fayez, we will not reach any conclusion...
TV host: Just a moment... Listen to him too.
Fayez Shakr: I wish you would listen. But you're not listening. I wish you would listen to the interview given by President Al-Assad.
Mustafa Allouch: I heard it.
Fayez Shakr: You did? What did you hear?
Mustafa Allouch: I heard it, but I don't believe him.
Fayez Shakr: Who?
Mustafa Allouch: Bashar Al-Assad.
Fayez Shakr: You don't believe him?
Mustafa Allouch: No, I don't.
Fayez Shakr: Who are you to not believe President Al-Assad?
Mustafa Allouch: Speak with respect. Keep your calm.
Fayez Shakr: I'm calm, but it's a disgrace that you don't believe him.
Mustafa Allouch: Shame on you for calling it a disgrace. Shame on you...
Fayez Shakr: No, shame on you for not believing him...
Mustafa Allouch: I don't believe him because he is a liar.
Fayez Shakr: You are a liar, and your boss is a liar too.
Mustafa Allouch: Speak with respect. Look, son...
Fayez Shakr: Don't call me "son"...
TV host: Dr. Fayez... Dr. Mustafa...
Mustafa Allouch: I won't let someone who works for the secret service talk to me that way.
Fayez Shakr: I work for the secret service?! My shoe commands more respect than you.
Fayez Shakr throws a glass of water at Mustafa Allouch, which lands on the TV host
Mustafa Allouch jumps up and grabs a chair, about to throw it at Fayez Shakr
TV host: No, no... Guys, guys...
