No To Normalization - Not for Sale

Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

Arabic translation:

It will never be accepted/No to

(white text)


(circled white letters)

(Palestine is not) for sale

Curator's note: This poster features the images of Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, current President of the United Arab Emirates, and Benjamin Netanyahu signifying the enactment of the Israel–United Arab Emirates Normalization Agreement. 

The large white Arabic text - which says "Normalization" - when coupled with the negating preceeding black text reads "No to Normalization"

The last three letters of the word "Normalizaton" are circled creating a play-on-words: Thus encircled, these three letters spell out the Arabic term "for sale"

The map of Palestine in green in the background establishes that it is Palestine that will "never be for sale" 

The red boot prints on the faces of the two men further indicate the Palestinian rejection of the Agreement
