(1982) Mubarak, Sadat, Peace Agreement, Egypt, Israel, Shuldig, 1982 a Dry Bones cartoon
Today's Golden Odie cartoon was published in the Jerusalem Post on February 24, 1982.Thirty years ago.

Four months had gone by since Mubarak had become president of Egypt on 14 October 1981, after the assassination of President Anwar El Sadat. It looked like Mubarak was not going to try to lead his people to an acceptance of Israel as a friend and ally.

Thirty years have gone by, the Israeli Egyptian Peace Agreement is in danger, Egyptian Jew-hatred is rampant, and Egypt has decided that it would be best for everyone if Hosni Mubarak would now conveniently die in prison.
