The Making of a Prime Minister


Yesterday Lars Løkke Rasmussen (I cannot believe I have just written his name on my blog. What the world has come to) gained back the title of prime minister of my country.

Sigh.

But then a cartoonist whose country is in flames, who has been imprisoned and tortured, and who managed to flee and seek political asylum, recognized what has just taken place. A prime minister about to create a government depending on right wingers of the kind, who gladly look on while humans undergo exactly that: War, bombing, prison and torture while making certain there shall be no possibility of seeking refuge.

So let us take a look of Fadi Abou Hassan taking a firm look of that very person, he had till now only heard of, not seen before. Fadi first drew this:

He has a certain innocence, he is actually looking younger, only the bags under his eyes are ringed in as are the pupils of his eyes. Rings as in someone thirsting for power, ready to cooperate with anyone to gain dominance.

The very same drawing lined in ink. This is a statement now with the teeth fully grown.

 And finally with the skyline of the world as we know it. This is his prey.
