Jewish Roadblock (1989)

Jews as a roadblock to evil empires? (1989) Dry Bones cartoon - .
Today's Golden Oldie is from 1989.

I drew this Dry Bones cartoon exactly twenty years ago today. In the cartoon I wrote that we were facing the rise of the "Shi'ite Jihad against the world". Shi'ism is the Iranian brand of Islam. If I were to do the cartoon today, I'd use the phrase the rise of "Iranian Islamofascism" instead.

Allowing Jews to live in the Judean and Samarian districts of the West Bank is commonly called a "roadblock to peace". Today's Golden Oldie hints at the idea that throughout history, we have been a "Jewish roadblock to evil". Not a role that we seek, but rather one that we seem unable to escape.

Your thoughts?
