A heated debate between two guests on a political program aired by Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV stations ended with one throwing water in the other's face. The topic which got them so agitated was the escalating crisis in Syria.
What started as a discussion between Salem Zahrani, who heads a Lebanese media center and is known for his supportive stances for President Bashar Assad, and Asaad Bshara, who opposes the government in Damascus, tuned into a shouting match within seconds.

Zahrani accused Arab television stations of receiving foreign funding and airing biased reports against the Syrian regime; while Bshara accused him of "buying into" the pro-Assad media's lies.
According to the Lebanon Daily Star, Zahrani then accused Bshara of collaborating with Israel, and called him "an idiot."
According to the report, Bshara responded with a string of expletives; to which Zahrani responded by throwing throw two glasses of water that were on the table at him.
The show resumed several moments later, with both men apologizing to the audience.
