Netanyahu (1996)

The First Netanyahu government(1996) Dry Bones cartoon - .
Today's Golden Oldie is from June 1996.

Last night I watched Bibi Netanyahu being sworn in as our Prime Minister on Israeli TV. Thirteen years ago, when I drew today's Golden Oldie, Netanyahu had just become Prime Minister for the first time. Our beleaguered and isolated little democracy had turned the reins of government over to the Likud leader. The mainstream media had primed the world to see him as a "hard-Liner" and a crazy extremist.

Another one of those cartoons that I could run today ...if I were sure that Bibi's position was still the same.

So what do YOU think? it?
