“The market situation is really good and there is a huge turn out to buy things, and the prices are reasonable and obtainable by everybody except for the Syrian "Amr aldin" (a type of sweets made of apricot), which is a bit expensive.

Egyptian Satirist Bassem Youssef Ends...
Cairo, Egypt

03 Jun 2014

The Egyptian television satirist Bassem Youssef is ending his hugely popular show because he says he feels it is no longer safe to satirize politics in Egypt. At a press conference Youssef said "the present climate in Egypt is not suitable for a political satire program." "I am tired of struggling and worrying about my safety and that of my family".

Youssef, a former surgeon, was often called the 'Jon Stewart' of Egypt after the host of the American political satire TV program 'The Daily Show'.
MBC-Misr, the TV network that carried Youssef's show, had suspended the show during Egypt's presidential election. The decision was seen by some as an effort to stop him from making fun of the incoming president, former army field marshal Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

Interviewer: Dr Bassem, Nobody saw the episode before it was played?

Bassem Youssef:
“No, the episode was just written on paper, nobody saw it”.

Interviewer: But some websites had mentioned what the episode was going to be about.

Bassem Youssef: “These are the websites, and we are the one's who wrote the episode not the websites. Do not believe what is mentioned on the website. You can check what is written on the website and compare it with what we wrote and you will see that there is no similarity”.

Bassem Youssef: “you cannot keep anybody from expressing his opinion. A part of open media is about each person saying whatever he wants. You cannot stop people from saying what they want. I am the only one responsible for what I say in this press conference”.

Bassem Youssef: “We are living in one of the brightest eras of democracy, and we should cut out the tongue of whoever says otherwise” (said sarcastically)
