"The Martyr (Shahid) represents the moment of transcending these blind instincts, as he stands firm before death and transcends the conditioned reflexes – then the perfect person is realized within him, to whom we give a military salute."

The image shows terrorist Omar Abu Laila who murdered 2 Israelis. In the upper left corner is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas.
In the bottom left corner is a person wearing a keffiyeh (Arab headdress), holding a Palestinian flag in one hand and making a "V" for victory with the other.
