I oddly had the desire to try something. I drew the Rabbi in Israel in 1948, shortly after independence. I figured I sketch him up as part of the Pal'Machnik of the Portzim Battalion along the 'Burma Road' towards Jerusalem.
Taking on the Arab legions and Egyptian Army, that ragtag bunch , part of the "Negev Beasts" who raided commando style using jeeps ALA the Rat Patrol. Yes, he's armed with a German made K-98 Mauser, how ironic a twist is that? using the weapons that a former enemy used against you.
Sort of a history twist I put the Rabbi in.
I also did this after I had somebody pitch a fit over some far lesser art of Andy Rooney being declared 'racist'. I was about to pull the art to shut the whiner up, but rethought it and kept it up. I'm tired of whiners pitching a fit over political correctness.
