Foreign Cartoons on the Egyptian Protests

As the Egyptian protests continue to grow, cartoonists from all over the world are weighing in on this immensely important story.

The main difference between American cartoonists and our foreign counterparts is the use of dialogue. American cartoonists tend to be more dialogue heavy and rely on donkey and elephant metaphors, while foreign cartoonists attempt to convey their opinions with imagery and as little dialogue as possible.

Here are some interesting foreign cartoons that have come in over the last day.

Norwegian cartoonist Herbjørn Skogstad uses the missing nose of the Sphinx as a way to slam Egpyitan President Hosni Mubarak.

Jordanian cartoonist Emad Hajjaj also uses the Sphinx imagery in his cartoon, just in a different way.

Manny Francisco, a cartoonist from The Philippines, chooses a comparison between protesters and the Egyptian army.

Dutch cartoonist Hajo de Reijger sees the outcome of the protests as a gamble.

While French cartoonist Frederick Deligne uses Tienanmen Square imagery in his cartoon.
