The Secret Agreement (1975)

1975 Dry Bones cartoon -the secret part of the agreement?

This cartoon was published in September 1975.
Israel had just signed American-brokered agreements to end regional fighting. Rumors quickly spread through Israel about the "secret" parts of the agreement.

Now, thirty one years later, Israel has just signed on to another American-brokered agreement to end the fighting in Lebanon.
So what's going on with the return of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers?!! "It's in the secret part of the agreement," we Israelis whisper to each other.

And if it's not in the "secret" part?
Heads will roll.
And PM-by-accident Ehud Olmert will pay the political price.
