Arab Inaction: Cartoons by Ferzat and Hajaj

In this post, I present to you a selection of caricatures of Arab inaction. The caricatures are by two of my favorite caricaturists, the Syrian Ali Ferzat and the  Jordanian Emad Hajaj.

Hajaj uses a famous line from an old Arabic poem: “Today we drink, tomorrow we act”. In the cartoon, every day in the calender is “tomorrow we act”.

Another Hajaj cartoon:

Waiting fro Zero Hour

Hajaj again: “The Story of a Death Foretold”.  He drew this in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq:

The story of a death foretold

Now Ali Ferzat: The clock fell apart…

The clock fell apart

Another Ferzat: The chief of the Arab League is giving a very important speech…

The chief of the Arab League giving an important speech

Ali Ferzat: When Arabs help…

When Arabs help...

Finally, when we hold high hopes…

High hopes...
