Please help to pass this along


Watch this in full screen to appreciate the 3D effect.


Jerusalem | Filmed in Imax 3D from JerusalemGiantScreen on Video.

After a year of research and preparation, the giant screen film JERUSALEM advanced into production with an unprecedented aerial shoot throughout Israel and the West Bank. Scheduled for worldwide release in 2013, the film will take audiences on a spectacular tour of the Holy Land and the city once believed to lie at the centre of the world.

This is so very important to know. Most people do not know this. Why Israel has the RIGHT to be here. More important than the 1948 UN declaration.

My daughter just walked into the living room and said,”Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out of the window, take my TV, and stereo, and iPhone, and iPod, and my laptop. Please take all of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters. Then sell my new car, take my front door key away from me and throw me out of the house. Then disown me and never talk to me again. And don’t forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to my brother.

Well, she didn’t put it quite like that… she actually said…

“Dad this is my new boyfriend, Mohamed.”

Pulling Out of Afghanistan

France, Afghanistan, Obama, U.S.A., Elections, 2012, War, Taliban,  : Dry Bones cartoon.
And …according to the Telegraph:

France to follow US out of Afghanistan

“France is to follow the US in starting a gradual troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, Nicolas Sarkozy has announced, in a move that could boost his popularity before a 2012 election.

Mr Sarkozy said troops sent for reinforcement would start returning in a time frame similar to the US force withdrawal. President Barack Obama said on Wednesday the United States would pull out 33,000 troops by late 2012.

“Given the progress we have seen (in Afghanistan), France will begin a gradual withdrawal of reinforcement troops sent to Afghanistan, in a proportional manner and in a calendar comparable to the withdrawal of American reinforcements,” Mr Sarkozy’s office said after he spoke to Mr Obama by telephone.” -more

Western Europe (2001)

(2001) Europe, Islamism, Appeasement, Churchill, Crocodile: a Dry Bones cartoon: appeasement ...the crocodile quote by Sir Winston Churchill.
Today’s Golden Oldie cartoon is from June 22 2001. Exactly ten years ago.

But back then it was a “retelling” of an earlier quote by Sir Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965).

What Churchill had said was “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.” True when Churchill said it, true 10 years ago when I drew it, and certainly true today.

I’ve finally adjusted to being back here in my Herzlia Pituach studio after five weeks in America. And about time that I began posting “Golden Oldies” again.

Iranian Nukes

Iranian Nukes : Dry Bones cartoon.
As the cartoon points out, we don’t know what Iran is planning. But we’re getting ready for any eventuality. Israel has just launched a five-day civil-defense drill.

According to the V.O. A:

“With the Middle East in turmoil, Israel is preparing for the possibility of a regional war.

As part of preparations for such a scenario the country has begun a five-day civil-defense drill to deal with the threat of a massive missile and rocket bombardment from several fronts: Iran, Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. -more from voa

In light of the above:

Many years ago the Tel Aviv Municipality, as part of its program to support the arts, decided to allow selected artists to use bomb shelters as studios. The LSW (Long Suffering Wife) is one of those selected artists. Today she’s at her studio, but today she’s not being a painter. Today she’s an air-raid warden, being part of the massive drill.

Here’s one of her paintings of Tel Aviv. It’s of her favorite Juice Bar on a peaceful, tree-lined Tel Aviv Boulevard:
