Picture = 1000 words

It took me three glances to get the message in this picture, and then I thought it was brilliant:

Hat tip: Michelle Malkin

UPDATE:  If you can’t see the image on my blog, just go on over to Michelle Malkin.  There’s prescient Oliphant cartoon, but that’s not what I was actually linking to.  Instead, I was caught by the images of “A soldier of Palestine” and “A soldier of Israel.”

    Thanks for posting that link to Malkin without the label. I recall reading blogs about “Oliphant UN Cartoon” and passed right by it — knowing from past history that Oliphant was extremely liberal — I didn’t want to waste my time.

    What a surprise — the ‘toon was right on the money.. What prompted him to draw that 34 years ago?

    It opened fine for me and I’m using firefox.

    “What prompted him to draw that 34 years ago?”

    George Bush wasn’t President.

    Good guess — but Kennedy was liberal and supported the UN — Oliphant was liberal and opposed the UN (??) (at that time)… But I know — liberals change opinions to match their prejudices, not necessarily with good judgment.

    But, as Book says, it is a great political cartoon for today
