Ben Gurion's Dream (1974)

1974 Dry Bones cartoon - We need to settle the Negev.
David Ben Gurion, (Israel's George Washington) had a dream. It was to make the desert bloom and populate it with Israeli towns and cities... to make it a healthy, living breathing part of the country. New roads and RR lines are beginning to make that dream look like a possibility at last.

The current Israeli government's amazing unwillingness or inability to protect the Negev city of Sderot in the face of attacks from Gaza does not help the dream very much.
