New Yorker Contest: Jewish Eustace Tilley - a Biblical Eye for an Eye Entry

The contest entries do not come from the New Yorker staff. This one stole part of my idea for a Jewish Eustace Tilley - clever - but I reject the implications of it. Israeli policy is based on many factors with political, military and diplomatic goals. Lex talionis, the ancient biblical concept of an eye for an eye, which is the text in the drawing, is not a motive of Israeli government actions.
