Occupied Jerusalem (1976)

1976 Dry Bones cartoon - Jerusalem, the Jewish City, illegally held by a series of occupiers for two thousand years.
This cartoon, done in March of 1976, was in response to a statement by William Scranton (the U.S. Ambassador to the UN in 1976)

Today being Tisha Be'Av, I thought it was appropriate to trot out the simple facts about the history of the foreign occupation of our eternal Holy City (which lasted until 1967).
