2003 Turkish cartoon that applies to Egypt

The Hamas site Palestine Times says that some members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood are looking at the experience of the Turkish AKP party in how, over time, they could become the major ruling party in Egypt, by adopting a more secular public stance and emphasizing issues like the economy.

I found this Turkish political cartoon from 2003 about the AKP that describes this situation pretty well (I translated it, click to enlarge.)
