Supporters of Sheikh Saad bin Nasser al-Shithri who was fired for criticizing the liberal policies at King Abdullah University for Science and Technology have hacked the Al Watan website and posted a picture of the Sheikh and a message supporting him and lambasting his opponents.

Frankly, we do not know the difference between the deviant sects of militants and the fifth column (…) of liberals; they both defame scholars and describe them with the most offensive statements…O Sheikh Shithri, we are on your side and faithful to you, but the voice of hypocrisy today is the one that resonates most in our press.

I am always profoundly struck at the cheek of such people: bemoaning and complaining about modernization via hacking a website. Irony, anyone?

The same caveat applies:

These cartoons are emphatically not meant as some kind of political statement on my behalf and neither are they here to offend. They are simply what I have come across on a day to day basis and thought others might find them amusing/thought provoking/telling/meaningful etc.
