The head of the Arab Tawheed Party, former Minister Wiam Wahhab, walked off the set of a TV talk show Friday, angered by the comments of a Muslim Scholars Committee member accusing him of defamation.Wahhab was being interviewed on Al-Jadeed's "Al-Hadath" talk show, when Sheikh Amin Raad, a member of the Muslim Scholars Committee involved in negotiating the cease-fire in Arsal, called to respond to one of the guest's comments. Raad condemned Wahhab for allegedly accusing the Muslim Scholars Committee of being terrorists and pro-ISIS, despite the scholars' efforts in ending the bloodshed in the recent Arsal clashes. However, after the incident, Wahhab accused the Muslim Scholars Committee of having links to Hassan Qatorji, whose deputy, Abou Omeir al-Homsi, he said was in prison on terrorism charges.
