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.

Israel’s tunnel warfare in Gaza is being led by the Yahalom commando unit, the subterranean equivalent to undersea “frog men.”

These Israeli tunnel commandos are armed with Israeli high-tech devices, including ground-penetrating radar, drilling equipment, flying killer drones and unmanned ground vehicle robots armed with remote-controlled machine guns and grenades. 

They have been trained for just this situation. They are ready.

Unique weapons, like the tunnel-sealing sponge bombs, are being deployed as the commandos search for hostages and fight the demonic Hamas fighters hiding beneath the streets of Gaza.
