German translation of caption card:

Burhan Karkutli: "Jerusalem Is Ours - Victory Is Ours" - poster, 1979
The Palestine Film Foundation (Thanks to The Palestine Poster Project) 

The German-Arab graphic artist Burhan Karkutli understood himself as a Palestinian, although he came from a Syrian family, and was involved in the Middle East conflict with Israeli Palestinian politics

The poster, which was widely distributed, shows the cityscape of Jerusalem is full of mosques and churches, but without a synagogue. It seems to follow his fantasy of a city without Jews
