Ripped From the Archives: July 2008

Another month with three printed at once.

20000 twenty thousand reasons not to give up the golan crowd of israelis galilee
Drawn in response to renewed murmurs about how it might be a good idea to hand the Golan over to Syria in exchange for piece peace. Nutters.

the biggest problem with having a political party made up of pensioners were splitting what were we doing again old people forgetfulness
Yes, believe it or not there actually was a Pensioners' Party and they took 7 Knesset seats (out of 120) in their first election. Eventually becoming a de facto faction of Labor, the party's obviously out-of-their-depth members floundered and squabbled, with three MKs eventually announcing a split from the party. Except that they didn't. Then they did. Then they weren't sure. The whole back-and-forth was exceptionally diverting and provided excellent cartoon fodder. (In October, two of the three rejoined the main party and the third formed yet another offshoot. None of them made it back to the Knesset following the elections in February '09.)
