Editorial cartoons: Arab cartoonists weigh in from Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt
No views on North African strife are more sobering and compelling than those of Arab cartoonists. Lebanon's Hassan Bleibel portrayed the enormously heavy burden of repression. Jordan's Emad Hajjaj ominously rendered authoritarianism's boiling point. But Egypt's Amr Okasha -- struggling in the eye of the revolutionary storm, when order broke down and chaos broke out -- exhibited a special defiant courage. He took time from defending his property from thugs to dispatch a President Hosni Mubarak sphinx, its stone face slowly deteriorating into rebellion's rubble.
