Beautiful Israel (1976)

1976 Dry Bones cartoon -War and Peace.  Nine Days After the Entebbe Rescue and a Beautiful, Sexy, Charming Miss Israel Wins the Miss Universe Competition
As I write these words (on July 13, 2006) news is coming in of the expanding war launched against us by Hamas and Hizbullah, Iran's puppet forces in the region.
Missiles are hitting Israeli towns and cities. Army reserves are being called up. The IDF is fighting in Lebanon and Gaza ...And the entire country is holding its breath.

This cartoon was published exactly 30 years ago today, on July 13, 1976.
Only nine days had passed since the incredible Entebbe rescue operation by the IDF surprised the world, saved the kidnapped hostages of that day, and ended the nation's Post-Yom Kippur War depression.

...And then Miss Israel, Rina Messinger, was crowned Miss Universe 1976?!
We were being treated fairly in an international competition?!
Israel was now euphoric!!

Nine days after the Entebbe rescue, Rina Messinger, Miss Israel was crowned Miss Universe 1976
