Egyptian and American cartoon – Alfredo Corral

For this exchange, students from Stanford and the American University in Cairo posted and commented on each other’s analyses of political cartoons and advertisements.

Religious conflict has always existed and I find this cartoon relevant to an Egyptian audience due to the fact that most Egyptians are Muslims and would find a Christian cartoon like this one to be ridiculous and funny. Hopefully it is not offensive in terms of historical religious tensions amongst nearby countries but to laugh about religion could arguably soften tensions and create acceptance among people of differing religious views.

This cartoon comes to show how we have all grown up as college students and how we still have that inner child in us somewhere. This brings us back to a time when we were in elementary school and how we have to think before we say anything. Some of us still struggle with this ( I know I do) and this cartoon reminds us of how far we have progressed over the years.
