British Prime Minister David Cameron gets the attention of cartoonists — and European leaders — with his announcement that he’ll hold a referendum to see if Britons want to stay in the 27-nation European Union.
Here’s my latest cartoon slideshow starring three separate dramas playing out across the Middle East. You’ll see a two-faced Bashar al-Assad, an embattled Egyptian president, and a joust between Mahmoud Abbas and Benjamin Netanyahu over a UN vote and a plan for more settlements.
This selection of political cartoons show the fire-breathing that’s been going on at the United Nations this week. Watch Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad and his scheduled insults; President Obama as he tries to get the Arab and Muslim world to love him, and Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi as he equivocates over just what the United States is to Egypt.
