You had to look at it twice to get that? :P

Fun fact: 9 out of 10 Egyptian women are clitoris-free thanks to the wonderful practice of FGM.

Have a very nice day.

Not a cartoon, but still:

OK, while the images are strikingly similar, the quotes and sentiments of that picture comparison are in pretty bad taste, considering how so much more violent and brutal the Egyptian cops are, and in actual fact the guy from the London image was hijacking the legitmate students' protest to smash things up (making legitimately malcontent people look bad by association); so sorry, I'll won't link something as contentious as that again.

Here's a more appropriate, better judged cartoon from the reliable M.Wuerker:

A decision must be made in the life of every nation at the very moment when the grasp of the enemy is at its throat. Then, it seems that the only way to survive is to use the means of the enemy, to rest survival upon what is expedient, to look the other way. Well, the answer to that is 'survival as what'?

Given the reaction on the Right to the Libya incident, I would say this is rather apt.
