Description

Officer: "I am killing him because he is a terrorist". Bearded man: "I am a terrorist because he is killing me". This cartoon aims to criticise the anti-Muslim Brotherhood discourse that portrays all MB members as terrorists and, therefore, legitimate targets of state violence.
The cartoon was published in the wake of the killing of 51 supporters of the deposed Muslim Brotherhood president, the late Mohamed Morsi, outside the Republican Guard headquarters.
