Those British Academics

Dry Bones cartoon - British Academics Boycott Israel
This cartoon stars Mr. Shuldig, my alter ego. When I first drew Shuldig he wore an open shirt and jacket in what was, years ago, the standard dress for Israeli men. With time he switched to a fuzzy sweater over a shirt.

During the pullout from Gaza, we Israelis were divided and we debated each other in a giant "color war." Opponents of the pullout tied orange ribbons to everything they could find. Pro-pullout people fought back with displays of blue ribbons.

Since then I've drawn Shuldig wearing both colors: his sweater is orange and the collar of his shirt is blue.

Oh, and about the Palestinian President of Al Quds University, that story is here.
