For those who are deeply depressed by the constant state of sinat chinam (baseless hatred) amongst the Jewish people, here’s a reminder from the wonderful folks at MEMRI that there are actually worst behaved public officials than Jews.
The MEMRI clip is from a Jordanian interview show in which two Jordanians, the political analyst Muhammad Sharif Al-Jayousi and the lawyer Musa Al-Abdallat, are the guests.
As the clip begins, Al-Abdallat is saying that Jordanian Arabs and Muslims must not be treated as fools. He then says, “The criminal in the region is the butcher Bashar Al-Assad.”
Al-Jayousi immediately interrupts, yelling at Al-Abdallat to stop the name-calling. He starts pointing his finger at Al-Abdallat, who responds in kind. Al-Jayousi then jumps up and lunges towards his opponent, yelling and threatening.
The host, whose name is not mentioned, begins flailing his arms, yelling, “No! No! No!”
All three go off-screen, still yelling, and the clip ends.
