The Middle East

This is a NY Times Op-Ed illustration from last week.  The article is titled "Why Israel Feels Threatened" and can be read here.  I tried to work with this opener line:
"MANY Israelis feel that the walls — and history — are closing in on their 60-year-old state, much as they felt in early June 1967, just before Israel launched the Six-Day War and destroyed the Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian armies in Sinai, the West Bank and the Golan Heights....."
With all the news coming out of Gaza, I thought I'd post some past images I've done relative to the Middle East situation which show a variety of approaches:
Yasser Arafat, TIME Magazine
A Nuclear Israel, The Washington Post
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, TIME (unpublished)

Gaza, TIME Magazine
Equality for Palestinians living in Israel, NY Times Op-Ed
