Israeli Democracy (1974)

1974 Dry Bones cartoon - The problem with our democracy.
This Golden Oldie was done back in 1974!!

In today's Israel an entire nation, Leftists and Right-Wingers alike, agree on one point. Olmert, our current Prime Minister is a disaster and must be taken out of his position. In our parliamentary system that is really easy to do.

Our Knesset members represent us, the people. And the Knesset can simply remove the present government and put another in its place. No big deal. But they're not doing it. Why not?! Is there a problem with our political system? ...or with our politicians? ...or are we to blame?

Ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions?
