Insulting the president?
Dr Bassem Youssef is an Egyptian satirist who, with his tv-program 'Al-Birnamig' copied more or less the concept of "The Daily Show" of the American Jon Stewart. On Sunday he was summoned to the public prosecutor's office after complaints that he insulted the Egyptian president, Mohammed Morsi, and religion. This is the program in which he allegedly did so. Judge for yourself. (Youssef was released on bail. He had to pay LE 15.000, about $ 2000).
