The French (1996)

1996 Dry Bones cartoon -Optimism Pessimism about French anti Israeli positions.

I picked this Dry Bones "Golden Oldie" from 1996 to run today.
I chose it because we've just been treated to a visit by Ségolène Royal, the French socialist presidential candidate. She came to us after visiting Beirut, where Lebanese MP Ali Ammar denounced US “insanity” and compared Israel to the Nazis.

In a 20-minute tirade Mr Ammar attacked “unlimited American insanity” for sending troops into Afghanistan and Iraq. He then said that Israeli “Nazism” was no better than Hitler’s Third Reich.
Ms Royal, who is on her first overseas trip since winning the Socialist Party primary, replied: “Thank you for being so frank. I agree with a lot of the things you have said, notably your analysis of the US.”
