Yom HaShoah

Dry Bones cartoon, Israel, Yom HaShoah, Holocaust, Nazism, genocide,
Yom HaShoah: A large portion of Israel’s nearly 200,000 survivors live in poverty. A 2015 survey by the Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel found that one quarter of Israeli survivors can’t afford medicine, while 30 percent sometimes go without food. Two-thirds say they are “distressed” by their financial situation. “There are still gaps between the response and what’s needed,” Roni Klinsky, the foundation’s CEO, told JTA in 2014. In the past, “people got less help and weren’t organized enough to get assistance. The survivor issue wasn’t a high priority.”

James "foot in mouth" Mattis

Dry Bones cartoon, Israel, Mattis, Mad Dog, America,
The statements in the cartoon's speech balloons were all actually said by U.S.Defense Secretary General James "Mad Dog" Mattis (except GRRRR! and WOOOF! ). We hope that during his visit to the Jewish state he will express his regrets for his previous biased and ignorant assessments.

Easter Eggs

Dry Bones cartoon, Christian, Copts, Easter, Easter Egg, terror, terrorism, Egypt, ISIS, middle east, Islam, Islamism, Muslim,
Software engineers often have fun by putting secret surprises into their software. Users who type a secret word will activate these secret surprises. These are called "Easter Eggs". No, I'm not going to give you a list of Easter Eggs hidden in Google or Windows or...

I thought of this while considering the cartoon to do about the Islamist attacks on Christians, such as the bombings of the Copts in Egypt. The idea of worshipers being blown up as they attempt to commune with God is a horror, whether they are Christians, Sunnis, Shias, Sufis, or Jews, but that is the Easter Egg in our current cruel world.
