More Arab Springs! More Arab Springs!

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's state prosecutors issued an arrest warrant Saturday for a popular television satirist for allegedly insulting Islam and the country's president, in the latest legal action to take aim at a critic of the nation's Islamist leader.
Opposition figures have expressed concerns about freedom of expression and assembly for what they call a crackdown on dissent at a time of deep polarization in Egypt's politics.
The opposition charges that Morsi and the Brotherhood have failed to tackle any of the nation's most pressing problems and are trying to monopolize power, and breaking promises of inclusiveness. <snipped>
re: the bolded - If the AP had any balls in this country they would say the same thing about 0bama. How is he any different than Morsi.
The best part of the article is when they mention that it's women and the Christians that are in opposition and trying to bring Democracy to Egypt. No kidding. Link
Wait a second...let me reconsider my position. :biggrin-new:
The warrant against Bassem Youssef is also the latest in a series of legal actions against the comedian, who has come to be known as Egypt's Jon Stewart.
