#EgyCartoons : And Mostafa Hussein Strikes again

In less than 48 hours Cartoonist Mostafa Hussein surprises us with another one of his masterpieces about General Abdel Fatah El Sisi.

Oh yes this was published this time in today’s issue of weekly Akhbar Al Youm.
The idea of that cartoon is famous Satirist writer Ahmed Ragab’s. The cartoon simply says that General Abdel Fatah El Sisi does not want to run for the presidency, but allegedly the people are carrying him to the throne of Egypt !!
So it is obvious that Hussein and Ragab want the general to run for the presidential elections.
Before I forget here is a collection of Hussein’s recent masterpieces :

Exhibit "A"
Exhibit "A" : Egypt as a transvestite that mothers whose got triplet “Army , police and people” that looks like that creature !!
Here you will find how he changed from 2011 to 2013 always taking the side of the regime.

Exhibit "B"
Exhbit "B" In 2011 the cartoon described the speech of Mubarak on February 1,2011 as the sun where as the protesters of Tahrir square as bats.
In 2012 the cartoons were speaking on how Morsi was facing lots of problems.
In 2013 the Sisi Man to the rescue.
Of course he got a series of other cartoons he always presents whenever there are clashes between the police and the protesters.
Exhibit "C"
Exhibit "C" : Here is one about the clashes at the ministry of interior. Vulgar ugly Egypt running after a protest carrying her slipper cursing him and saying that he deserved to be shot down !!
Also here is a cartoon mocking Egyptian famous footballer Abu Trika saying that his mind is corrupted because he is an Islamist.
Exhibit "D"
By the way,my last post about Hussein’s Sisi-man drew criticism from El Sisi’s supporters who believe that I should not mock about the man who brought back my freedom aka El Sisi otherwise I would be a Muslim brotherhood member who does not care about her freedom. Needless to say all of them are old in their 40s and 50s preaching me and other bad useless hippie Tahrir protesters who were trained in Serbia to have manners !!

And Hussein continues his El Sisi for presidency's cartoon and I do not understand why he made Egypt says that she is waiting the "Pallot" box insteadof Ballot Box !!
Egypt is waiting for the "Pallot box" of presidential elections


  1. Thanks God, that there is still someone speaks with some sense of logic...many people of Egypt prefered to freeze thier minds and choosed the ready made decisiosn especially that if it matching a previous period of time that, the've been through (((abdul nasser time)) others blindly stopped realizing or definding the human right for who so ever was...thanks again

  2. I find the ruckus about Seesy's nominations quite childish. The presidency is not and was never the main issue or even the problem. There is an intellectual void that if not adequately filled will be consumed by power. That is the simple reality. The failure of the "educated" liberal caste to maneuver collectively throughout the past three years with any degree of maturity has practically handed over the reigns to the military. Instead if discussing strategies, principles and plans of action we squabble about men. Let me ask you this, would you have had any problem with the above caricature had it been Baradie not Seesy being carried over to the chair?

  3. Tahrir is Fascism!

  4. Egypt..MOTHER of Modern Arab culture as always was the AVANT GARDE of it too, in 20/21 centuries...the cradle of the free Arab press, that took abreast any world talent and adopted IT as one of her own, the Art of CARICATURE, was considered a blasphemy a sin in some Ottoman/Turks ruled countries ...but Egypt did not took hid of such mandate , even opened its doors to runaway cartoonists from all over East/West countries that persecuted such talents?! like the Great/Late Mr.SAROUKHAN..MARIO MORELLI DI POPOLO of children s magazine SINDIBAD/ just few to mention..and many many more,But the sense of Humour runs wild in EGYPTIANS blood..even in their dark moments , This does not mean having thick skin,but they know how to turn tears of sadness into tears of JOY! Abiding by their famous saying: MA HADEESH WAKHED MINHA HAGA meaning - Nothing One Will Take When He/She Leaves---in other words>> when DEAD! That s why Egypt was and still is rich in having the BEST Cartoonists and Comedians..since 1900 s, when PRESS & CINEMA took off, but before that on stages of their many Theatres, even though Egypt s ruling class and elites were mostly &originally foreigners, but street wise common people created their own venues of LET OUTS,,and when periodicals such as ROSE EL YOUSSEF.AKHER SAA/KASHKOL..some others too critisised the Ottomans/Brits, and the ruling was mostly read by the High & working classes ...but the ideas were taken from the street level people,and which in the end ,ended the tyranny of the ruling >>(few )by the 1953 revolution, with it new era started in its a republic >> AL GOMHORIYA<< daily published, and SABAH EL KHAIR(Good Morning)a sister of Rose el Youssef weekly..filled by hundreds of talents arrived..Like ZOHDI/BAHGAT/REKHA/HAMED/TOGHAN/MUSTAPHA HUSSAIN...& many many more ,Egypt s press became not a school but a UNIVERSITY of this ART...which inspired LEBANESE PRESS in the 1950s and on,IN 1974 i was fortunate to shake hands with my childhood SAMIR magazine s in 1959-61 cartoonist the GREAT Artist Mr.HELMI EL TOUNI,who visited Lebanon and stayed there for few years?? for me this was a dream come true ,meeting him .even for few minutes, By the way,The great/late a martyr indeed, Palestinian cartoonist Mr.NAJI ALI was inspired by Mr.TOUNI s HAMADA character on SAMIR magazines pages of 1959/60 ,which Mr.ALI (R.I.P ) turned it into the helpless Palestinian person/boy , called him>>Handhala! which appears on GAZA poster on this side bar on this- Egyptian Chronicles -page?an example of such influence Egyptian cartoonists & comedians had & have on the whole Arab region...all i can say & finish with this humble COMMENT by saying 3 sincere words from my heart >>THANK YOU EGYPT << /Regards from London:is-hak Barsoumian
