FILE - In this Sunday, March 31, 2013 file photo, a bodyguard secures popular Egyptian television satirist Bassem Youssef, who has come to be known as Egypt's Jon Stewart, as he enters Egypt's state prosecutors office to face accusations of insulting Islam and the country's Islamist leader in Cairo, Egypt. After more than four months away, the man known as “Egypt’s Jon Stewart” returns the airwaves Friday in a country radically different from the one he previously mocked. Satirist Bassem Youssef’s weekly “El-Bernameg,” or “The Program” in Arabic, mocked the country’s first elected Islamist president and his supporters for mixing religion and politics, took them to task for failing to be inclusive or deliver on people’s demands for change_ to the extent that some said he was one of the main reasons people turned against Mohammed Morsi.
