We've got this problem with our leaders. They just won't follow our lead. This cartoon was done on March 6, 1995. Yitzhak Rabin was the Prime Minister who was then considering a withdrawal from occupied territories without a nation-wide referendum.
Incredibly, just ten years later, Ariel Sharon, the godfather of Israel’s right wing, would be the Prime Minister who unilaterally withdrew from occupied territories, refused to have a referendum on the matter, and was denounced for being “undemocratic.”
Like I say, we elect our leaders and then they just won’t follow our lead.
