Turkish political cartoons


A familiar mustache

While some Turkish cartoonists are afraid to openly criticize The country's Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, many feature sly references to him. In this cartoon his trademark mustache is drawn on the thumb of a hand forming the protest symbol of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egpyt, a major cause for Erdogan. The word Reyhanli commemorates the bombing on in that town on Turkey's border with Syria, an event which some see as a result of Turkey's Syria policy.
