Dr Pipes

I wanted to bring to your attention that the Morsi's government have ordered the arrest of the most famous satirist in the Middle East and his name is Bassem Youssef (his idol is Jon Stewart of the Daily Show) and for the readers if you check his show on youtube he has millions of watchers and his twitter account is followed by more than 1 million. He is very funny and he very interesting and here is the link from al-Ahram

http://www.ahram.org.eg/ and here is the headline

قرار بضبط واحضار الإعلامي باسم يوسف لاتهامه بإهانة الرئيس وازدراء الدين الإسلامي

أصدرت النيابة العامة اليوم السبت، قرارا بضبط وإحضار الإعلامي الدكتور باسم يوسف مقدم برنامج (البرنامج) الترفيهي بقناة (سي بي سي)، على خلفية البلاغات المقدمة ضده.

And the above head line says that he was arrested because of insulting Morsi and izdira' al-deen al-islami which means insulting Islam

The most intersting thing here there are now signs in Cairo that say: ممنوع دخول الكلاب والاخوان or no dogs and no members of el-ikhwan allowed in! There is for sure two Egypts now the liberal and very enlightened Egypt and Egyptians and the ikhwangiyya and Muhammad's fan club aka the salafists and the two shall never meet

Have we seen the end of Morsi? I hope so but I doubt it very much
