"Pardon me, I was distracted for a moment..."

Fadi Abou Hassan, Syrian Blood, August 15, 2014.

"... for a moment Daesh distracted me from you, but I now return to you, Bashar al-Assad, you two are the two sides of the same coin and forever inseparable. It is one continuous war".

Words by Fadi Abou Hassan written for his cartoon above, which two days later had company in the cartoon underneath. A revolution in which al-Assad did not deserve having a face, seeing that the revolutionaries' wish for dignity and respect could never be portrayed by him. Now, he is reflected in the extremism. 

And what a magnitude it has grown to. Even when trying to get to the roots of it, the danger of extremism is read in the fact alone that both drawings are meant to be read from right to left.
