Most Arab cartoonists praised the historic toppling of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsy, portraying him as a tyrant and dictator. The first freely-elected president in Egypt was overthrown by the army. Most Arab leaders, especially in the Gulf, were happy that Morsy was overthrown. Tunisia and Turkey were among a minority of countries to denounce Morsy’s overthrow as a coup.
