...plus je ne parle pas francais. As we say in the US.
Seriously, I came across these two cartoons from the Madrid Conference era, poking fun at the many and varied reasons the Israeli government of the day (under PM Yitzhak Shamir) came up with, to try to avoid entering peace negotiations with the Palestinians. Including the old favorite:
"First they stop the violence"
and the perennial "We have no partner for peace!"
Change that wiry little Shamir caricature into a big Sharon caricature, and you could run the same cartoons today. Same old, same old....
