Leibeman's Soviet Style Diplomacy

'Who do you want first? The EU or Tony Blair?' (Eran Wolkowski/Haaretz)

The seated figure - for those who don't get it - is Avigdor Leiberman, Israel's new (gag) Foreign Minister.

Hmm ... pick-axe - a reference perhaps to Trotsky's untimely demise at the hands of Stalin. Leiberman is, after all Russian, and there are lots of Russian Jews in Israel to get the reference.

With thanks to Tikun, where I cam across this cartoon
