Satire: Israel never allowed to defend herself

I received a satirical comic strip from a good friend that describes how Israel is never allowed to defend herself -

Israel's "Aggression", the Nebelspalter, Switzerland, 1956

The satire was originally published in the Nebelspalter (a newspaper from Switzerland, http://www.nebelspalter.ch/) in 1956, over 50 years ago.  This was the year of the "Suez Canal War" (see the history page for more details) and I believe the Israeli man depicted in the cartoon is David Ben-Gurion, considered to be Israel's "founding father".

When you see how many in Europe and in the United Nations have ganged up on Israel during her latest war on Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, it's easy to see how nothing has changed.  See below for the detailed satirical comic strip.

Hi,
Israel is really a great country and has fought many wars to protect herself.So the aggression is necessary to fight and win over the enemies.
