(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) CAIRO RESIDENT, EZZAT, SAYING: "Honestly, the arrest of journalists is something that should not be taking place after the revolution. After the revolution has taken place, this should not happen. An international conference should be held so an understanding can be reached on this issue so that there won't be any confusion, and there will be order. It's not okay to insult someone. But he (Bassam Youssef) didn't do that. He went a bit overboard, and he should tone it down a bit. But he is someone who is well-liked, and he has a specific style, a critical style, but it's a bit much."
