Yizhak Shamir (1981)


March 06, 1981

a Dry Bones cartoon: Shamir, Pope, Rome, Poland, Israel, News, John Paul I
Today's Golden Odie cartoon was published in 1981.

In 1981 Yitzhak Shamir was Israel's Foreign Minister. The news was that the Polish-born Jew was meeting with the Polish-born Pope. What a fascinating meeting that must have been for both men.

Shamir would go on to serve two terms as Prime Minister, the first from 1983 to 1984 and then 1986–1992.
