Dr. Bassem Youssef, the heart-surgeon turned satirist who hosts popular Egyptian TV show “ElBernameg” (“The Program”) has been issued an arrest warrant by Egypt’s state prosecutor, for insulting both President Mohammed Morsi and Islam. Youssef, often referred to as Egypt’s Jon Stewart (he visited The Daily Show last year, about which he is clearly proud — the above photo is his Twitter avatar), has been the target of numerous legal challenges to his public mockeries and criticisms of Egypt’s ruling powers, specifically Morsi and his party, the Muslim Brotherhood. Challenges to free speech and dissent which, frankly, validate his criticisms. Youssef tweeted that he’d be turning himself in on Sunday, “unless they kindly send a police van today and save me the transportation hassle.” source
