I just joined the Dry Bones family and you can, too. This has been my favorite Israeli political cartoon since my first visit to Israel in 1984. It was in the Jerusalem Post daily paper. Yaakov Kirschen makes a compelling case for fighting antisemitism with cartoons in what he describes as “a post literate world.” (Click here to join!)
The Problem: Israel is being boycotted, delegitimized, and defamed!! There is now a massive rise in antisemitism world-wide. Support for Christians and Jews in the Middle East has collapsed. Western campuses are hostile to our younger generation. We are shocked and frustrated. The situation is dire, urgent, and obvious, but an effective response seems to elude us.
Let’s Begin:The beginning of an effective response needs to be an understanding of “post literacy”. This was once a bi-polar world. People were either literate (they could read and write) or they were illiterate (they were unable to read or write). That world is gone. The targets of our messages are now post literate. (they can read and write but they prefer not to). Letter writing has disappeared. Emails beyond a few lines are ignored. Texting, tweeting, and the rise of the Instagram are the evolutionary result of this post literacy.
Dry Bones:The increase in importance of the cartoon is yet another step in this evolution. . . . And, in part, explains the wild popularity of Dry Bones cartoons in the digital world. If you are a Zionist you have probably shared or received Dry Bones cartoons.
We Are The Answer:The time has come to organize and expand the Dry Bones response. We want you to join and support us. Whether you are a young student or a concerned retiree, join us. Whether you are Jewish or not we offer you a way to fight back. Join us. We are the answer. Yaakov Kirschen, Dry Bones
