Pressuring Israel (1978)

(1978) Dry Bones cartoon: American support of Israel is conditional.
Today's cartoon is 32 years old. I drew it in 1978. The latest news (at the time of this writing) is a trial balloon rumor of what America will "give" us if our Prime minister will bow to their demands.

What is offered (and was offered in 1978) is "continued support" if we will do as we're told!

The clear message to the enemies of the West then, and now, is that American support of Israel is conditional. A message which is welcome news to the Arab, Turkish, and Iranian regimes which refuse to accept the UN's 1947 call for a Jewish State in Palestine.
