Every Year A New Gilad

Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

Arabic translation: (red text at top) To our heroic prisoners

Every year a new Gilad (Gilad Shalit)

Curator's note: This caption is a parody on the traditional Arabic New Year's greeting.

Its deeper meaning is derived from the statistic graph at the bottom of the poster. This show how many Palestinian prisoners—11,000—are held in Israeli prisons and juxtaposes it with the solitary blindfolded Israeli prisoner, Shalit, in the graphic. The message of this poster is that Hamas will not release Shalit until Israel releases Palestinian political prisoners.
