Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian film director Khaled Youssef, which aired on Al-Kahera Wal-Nas TV on July 30, 2012.

Interviewer: Do you think that a day will come when you will miss the days of Mubarak?

Khaled Youssef: That won't happen, but if we let [the Muslim Brotherhood] do whatever they want, we will eventually miss the days of Hitler. I have faith, however, in the will of the Egyptian people, who will not let them do whatever they want to us.

Interviewer: Are you comparing the Muslim Brotherhood to the Nazis?

Khaled Youssef: I didn't say the Nazis. I said Hitler. I said that we will miss the days of... If they ever feel that the people has no will of its own, they will do things to us that are worse than what Hitler did. I am responsible for what I am saying.


Interviewer: The revolution against the Mubarak regime had the smallest number of casualties of all the Arab revolutions. In your opinion, if there is a revolution against the Muslim Brotherhood, will it lead to a similar outcome, or will it be like in Libya or Syria?

Khaled Youssef: A revolution against the Muslim Brotherhood would lead to bloodshed. When defeated, they know nothing but blood.
