Today's cartoon is from 1973. We had successfully fought back against the massive Egyptian surprise attack that had initially overrun Israeli forces in Sinai on Yom Kippur 1973.

I don't like doing caricatures and am not good at it. I also prefer to show discussions about the issues between two guys having coffee, King Solomon and his Adviser, Mr. Shuldig and his dog Doobie, etc. Henry Kissinger was a notable exception. I became totally fixated! I was carried away with my dislike, distrust, and suspicions about him. I ended up doing more than seventy anti-Henry Kissinger cartoons! Today's Golden Oldie is the very first Kissinger cartoon I ever did.
