Lebanese TV presenter Rima Karaki fired back at a Muslim Cleric after he told her to “shut up” during an interview this week.

The argument started when the TV host asked the cleric to cut his answer due to time restrictions as he spoke about the historical consequences of Christian involvement in the Middle East instead of the recent wave of Christians joining ISIS.


“Please don’t get all worked up,” Karaki, who was presenting a talk show on al Jadid channel, said. “We respect you and know you want to give a complete answer.”

But Al Seba’i did not accept Karaki’s comment.

“Are you done?” he asked. “Shut up so I can talk.”

Karaki carried on by saying: “Just a second. Either there is mutual respect or the conversation is over.”

Shortly after Karaki asked producers to cut off Al Seba’i's microphone and move on with the program.
