Emad Hajjaj Caricatures On The Arab World Lately

Jordanian cartoonist Emad Hajjaj has done some interesting work recently on the various political developments in the Arab world that have dominated the news this past month or so. It is perhaps coincidence that all these events should coincide at the same time, however, they’ve provided some great inspiration for some spectacular visual documentation of a different variety: caricatures. Here’s a selection of the one’s Hajjaj has produced in the past month or so, looking at all the instability in Tunisia, Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan.

The Arab World:

The Arab People

Dictatorships

Arabs in the era of division

Arab governments (arm), The [Arab] Street, Tranquilizer

Egypt:

Islam and Christianity (reference to Egypt)

Lebanon:

The Lebanese Scene

International Court (bottle), Lebanon (hat/tarboosh), Hizballah (the flame)

Lebanon’s Separation

Tunisia:

“The Eid Crescent!”

Death of Al Bouazizi, trigger of the wave of social protests in Tunisia

Tunisia: a vegetable cart overthrows the president’s chair

The Tunisian Revolution

Sudan:

The Division of Sudan. (North, South, Darfur)

Jordan:

This is the latest tool for administrative reform

“I too want to burn myself but the price of gasoline is just too high”

The new Revolutionary Weapons

The fourth pic under Tunesia is incorrect. Izrael not part of PanArabia.

Emad thank you - pictures speak louder than words sometimes..I love your work, but one cartoon of tunisian vegetable cart overthrows presidential chair, uhh maybe its too sad a story for me to laugh at that one. Excellent stuff Emad you're very talented. Brave middle east - my grandparents are Lebanese so I loved the ones on Lebanon too. anne - australia

اخشى ان تعلن اسرائيل رسميا ضم يهودا والسامرة لانه لا يوجد ما يمنعها الان

@Alian, Ali, Alaa or what have you. your comments are honestly of no use. using profanity in an attempt to insult me simply shows how unable you are to present anything substantial or of value here. it is a show of your very weakness and you frankly only humiliate yourself.

Really like the Lebanese ones especially. I like how Hajjaj's drawings are in a comical style, but the ones displayed here make me want to cry profusely.
