Jerusalem (1997)


(1997)Bush, Obama, Jerusalem, Israel, Palestinians, Congress: a Dry Bones cartoon
Today’s Golden Odie cartoon is from July 1997.

I posted it because of this piece of late-breaking news:

Born in Jerusalem?: “The question of Jerusalem’s sovereignty is going to the U.S. Supreme Court, but not to resolve the Middle East conflict. M.B.Z. v. Clinton is instead about the power of the U.S. president to decide if the passports of Jerusalem-born Americans list “Israel” as their birthplace, the New York Times reports. More broadly, the justices suggested they will decide whether a related 2002 law infringes on the president’s power to recognize foreign sovereigns.

More narrowly, the case is about Menachem Zivotofsky, who was born in the holy city. His parents want “Israel” rather than “Jerusalem” to be his formal birthplace, and so did Congress when it passed the law directing the State Department to record Jerusalem births as having taken place in Israel. Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama say this unconstitutionally limits their powers, since U.S. policy for six decades has been to leave Jerusalem’s status to Israel and the Palestinians.”- see source

So what do you think about George W. and Obama’s agreement on this issue?

Vietnam, Afghanistan, America, War, Taliban, Libya,   : Dry Bones cartoon.
I resolved to do a funny cartoon for today. I drew it yesterday, but humor is a funny thing. Looking at it now, what seemed to me yesterday to be funny seems really depressing to me today.

I decided to go ahead and post it, but I’d really like to know. Was it funny to you? Or depressing? Or both? Or …?
