Palestinian Talks (1985)

(1985) Dry Bones cartoon: Palestinian Talks.
Today's Golden Oldie is a Dry Bones cartoon done 25 years ago in 1985. Back then, Mr. Shuldig (my alter ego) was tired of the "breaking news" about the Palestinians actually being ready to negotiate.

"Hussie" referred to King Hussein of Jordan. An Arab country that would sign a peace treaty with the Jewish State nine years later (in 1994).

Mubarak was, and is, the President of Egypt. An Arab country that had signed a peace treaty with the Jewish State six years earlier, (in 1979).

Here in 2010, 25 years later, the latest news is a possible "breakthrough" with the Palestinian leadership!! Under pressure from the Americans, they may be ready for direct talks!

...and then again, maybe not.
