The Steadfast People

Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

Arabic translation:

The steadfast people

Curator's note:

The graphic in this poster shows Palestinian civilians in Gaza standing on the roofs of buildings. In its interpretation of this poster the IDF website states that:

1) Hamas is calling on the people to become human shields

2) Hamas "uses" such posters to encourage Palestinians to become heroes/marytrs by acting as human shields

Both of these assertions are incorrect. Hamas did not design or publish this poster. It is also not a call on Palestinians to act - as heroes or anything else. Rather, it is a homage recording the actions of the people of Gaza
