Brooklyn-born (in 1938) cartoonist Yaakov Kirschen made Aliyah to Israel in 1971 and began drawing his Dry Bones cartoons in January of 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.

A “Sophie’s Choice” is one between equally bad options.

We have Hamas trapped in Gaza, and its only hope for survival is to use the hostages to break the siege.

Which presents us (and the other countries whose people have been taken) with a painful Sophie’s Choice.

Will we choose to negotiate with the kidnappers? Will the world? Will the world turn against us?

Hamas must be taken out.

What do we do next?
