The U.S. Embassy (1977)

1977 Dry Bones cartoon - Time to Move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
Thirty years ago this month, in November of 1977, I did a cartoon about how it was time for the U.S. to move its embassy to Israel's capital city, Jerusalem.

Well, here we are in 2007 and the American government is not dragging its heels. That would imply that they are resisting pressure. As far as I can see there's nobody exerting pressure... so there's no "resistance".

Oh, and by the way, eighteen years after this cartoon was published, in 1995, Congress finally voted to move the embassy to Jerusalem. Yup. Twelve years ago.

Wanna know what happened?
