The scenes across the world of people screaming for Jewish blood are simply unbelievable.

Brooklyn, N.Y.-born (in 1938) cartoonist Yaakov Kirschen made aliyah to Israel in 1971 and began drawing his “Dry Bones” cartoons in January 1973. He is a member of both America’s National Cartoonists Society and the Israeli Cartoonists Society. “Dry Bones” was internationally syndicated and ran in The Jerusalem Post for 50 years, being reprinted by The New York Times, Time magazine, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal and other major media publications. The “Dry Bones” story has been covered by CBS, CNN, Forbes and many others.

While working on today’s cartoon I had the TV on in the background.

I caught a news video of a mob of Russians smashing past police in Dagestan to take over the runway where a plane from Tel Aviv had landed. They were screaming for Jewish blood while terrified passengers remained on the plane.

 I went back to sketching and trying to come up with a cartoon, and caught another news video. 

It was a mob of students in America screaming for Jewish blood while terrified Jewish students watched from their windows.

The scenes were simply unbelievable.

I looked at the calendar. Oct. 31. It’s Halloween.
