Our Leaders Won't Follow Us! (1995)

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.
