      Well, you know what I think. I’m with blah chick. Nutan’yahoo’s physique should have more obvious adipose deposits.

      Also, that nuke should be way droopier. Israel’s nukes are seriously old and have never been tested. Maybe you could do another cartoon where he removes the strap-on to reveal the truth.

        “From the children of Israel, to the children of Lebanon, with love,” – that’s what the zionists kids were writing on artillery shells bound for civilian targets in Lebanon.

        Nice neighbors if you can get them.

        Taxi it seems Golda Meir was looking at the wrong side when she said “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us”.

        From the spitting, burning, racist graffiti, throwing stones at babies, overwhelming support for Israeli bombing Gaza, and wanting apartheid policies in Israel, it seems Golda Meir, was projecting, like most zionists do.

        What she really meant was:

        PEACE WILL COME WHEN THE JEWS WILL LOVE THEIR CHILDREN MORE THAN THEY HATE THE ARABS.

        That is why the zionist kids did artwork on bombs so happily.

        “My hat off to the mohel. That’s one brave rabbi!”

        Just in hope of saving parents any unnecessary problems, I think it should be pointed out that a Rabbi is not necessarily a Mohel, and a Mohel may not be a Rabbi. And then you get some that all “all three”; that is, a Rabbi, a Mohel, and a surgeon.
        Regulations may have changed since my day, tho.

    Ha ha, now Katie might be accused of being anti-semitic. Perhaps those watching this war mongers speech can try to find some humor in it, by picturing the man in Congress, and visualize him the way Katie depicts him. That should make you less mad when he lies, which he definitely will.

    Make a post-card out of that and send it to every Congressman and the president. They’ll chuckle all the way to the AIPAC hoo-haw.

      Email it to your congressman before Tuesday. Every seasoned politician knows that when the complaint reaches ridicule, things have changed. When the public starts to sneer and laugh at you, you’ve lost ground.

      We need to give our congressmen diarrhea for attending.

      BTW, Katie, I agree with everyone here: brilliant.

    I keep looking at this wonderful depiction of the Boob, and have a good laugh. This is really brilliant. I hope this gets circulated around the world. Kate has done a great job showing exactly what the situation is, and how stupid the Boob looks warmongering, while they hide their nukes.
    Even the “Made in Dimona” sign on the nuke, is funny. Give us more, Kate.

    It seems the Likuds are nervous they will lose the election…..I guess that means more pressure on the Nuke Head, and his performance in Congress. He will milk it for all it is worth, and the traitors will applaud.

    “Likud fears it may only win 18 seats in upcoming election
    Source warns that party has picked up 10-30% fewer votes than predicted at start of all election campaigns since 1999.” Haaretz

    I wonder if this trouble maker will do the right thing, and go over to the other nations involved in these peace talks, Russia, China, United Kingdom, and France, and Germany, connive with the leaders of the opposition, get invited to speak in their parliaments too. I am sure those political leaders, unlike our congress, will not allow Netanyahu to insult their leaders like that, they will have better principles, and more decency than Boehner and the congress.

    Why is Beebs doing this cheap stunt only with Obama and the WH?

    • Theo
      March 2, 2015, 12:22 pm

      Why is he doing it?
      What a funny question or have you not noticed yet that this country is being governed from Israel? Now, this is another silly question, as we all know it!! If Obama had cojones then he could have stopped this charade.
      Although I have very little respect for politicians, any party or nation as I consider them to be nothing but prostitutes selling their services to the highest bidders, we may have the worst of them all. Ours are made with rubber backbones, they can bend with the prevailing wind in any direction, as matter of fact even backwards to pick up a few tossed bills or coins.
      You mentioned other nations, where I believe most politicians have a pride in their national heritage, although statemen became very rare and hard to find.

        If Obama had cojones then he could have stopped this charade.

        hmm, i don’t agree with that. had he stopped it we wouldn’t all be witnessing this erosion of the usual (organized jewish community) cohesion taking place. as i think i have mentioned before, part of the dynamics at play here is the timeframe between the announcement of the speech and the speech itself. like the sodastream/scarlett/superbowl fiasco, there was this 30 day window. we knew where and when the commercial would play, there was no getting out of that as millions had been invested. but watching events unfold, the oxfam, scarlett’s statement, the activists getting way more attention than ever before, all of it playing out in the media as the stocks were dropping. the denials the stock drop were impacted by the event…and the guarantee it would not die down for at least 30 days – it just built and built. and that’s what we’re seeing here, an amazing amount of exposure for israeli intransigence/chutzpa splashed across the american media landscape. that’s very rare and that never would have happened had obama somehow demanded a showdown over whether netanyahu would speak or not.

        and while the usual cohorts are threatening to make a list who’s naughty or nice and promising repercussions, they are not the only ones making a list. there will be many constituents making lists too, of who’s doing the donkey. i think obama made the right move not stopping the charade (assuming you mean the speech).

        March 2, 2015, 9:19 pm

        Annie is right. This was Netanyahu’s doing. HE started this fiasco by conniving with Boehner and shamelessly getting an invitation (Dermer doing the dirty work). No one can fault the WH for this, or accuse them of starting it. If Netanyahu minded his business and stayed home, and allowed the grown ups to negotiate with Iran without interference, NONE of this hullabaloo in the press would be happening. Netanyahu throws a tantrum, acts like a drama queen, and brings all this on himself. He should have been careful what he wished for.

        Annie, thanks for your comment.
        In Europe, here I mean the average people, not the politicians, this affair has a terrible smell to it and people wonder who runs the USA. There is many ways to skin a sheep and I am sure Obama could have, if he wanted to, through diplomatic channels let Netanyahu know that he is not welcome at this time. Are we the only superpower left that is trying to run the world, but is unable to put pressure on Israel?
        I agree with you, american jews must decide who are they and stop this madness.

        Kay24, I have never said that the WH is responsible for the invitation, however if Obama can instruct the russian president Putin to clear up this recent murder of a politician, (actually it is not our business or responsibility), then he should be able to put pressure on a tiny land that will not survive without US financial, diplomatic and military aid. However it takes guts and Obama has nothing to lose as his time comes to end, so why does he take this insult without a word of protest? Thinking of future lucrative speeking tours and publication, financed by jewish interests?

    .
    it isn’t big enough for the American government they won’t feel it
    and shouldn’t it be red white and blue (America paid for it)
    also shouldn’t there be background/mood music like ‘stars and strips forever’
    (the ones getting screwed should at least get to pick the music)
    .
    if ‘we’re going to pay Israel to sodomize us and our children
    (like we’re their amimals) at least it’s out in the open
    .
    i heard the speech was interesting
    turn a page and watch the trained seals jump up, clap and bark
    .

    First class Kate…Brilliant cartoon…excellent skills . A strap on is likely what he needs. Should have had a large jar of Prozac in his hand. He gets that paranoid about what he has been doing he likely needs jars of prozac to level himself out. He often mumbles!…..lol
