Figures 4-6: Rebirths, New Palestinian subjects and signifiers, the successful business man, the bored housewife with money and time to spare, and the middle class nuclear family. To the right a billboard campaign for Mahmoud Abbas’s state bid in the UN, dressed in a suit and holding his fist up with a bunch of papers, the new image of the Palestinian leadership (as opposed to Yasser Arafat’s military fatigue’s and kuffiyeh clad with a rifle in one hand an the olive branch in the other) ironically the message reads “Palestine is reborn…this is my message”.
