The image shows a monument in Silwad in the shape of the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas. On the map, which is wrapped in a string of lights, is written “Silwad,” and the stones below it form the word “Palestine.” At the top of the map is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine.” The stone slab at the bottom of the monument in the foreground of the image contains a list of Silwad's “Martyrs.” Posters with the picture of a youth whose identity PMW was unable to determine are attached to the monument.
