Poster published by Fatah (Palestinian National Liberation Movement) in 1968 commemorating the Battle of Karameh between Israeli Defense and the combined forces of the PLO and Jordanian Armed Forces during the War of Attrition. Karameh, a border town bewteen Jordan and the West Bank, was the headquarters of Yasser Arafat's Fatah, and this poster reflects strong Palestinian nationalism with its prominent incorporation of the B&W keffiyeh (a symbol closely associated with Arafat). A stirring example of the Middle East political poster, a form still vital and widespread in the area.
