The image is a signature at the tail end of a forum post. The post itself contained the names of those Jund Ansar Allah (JAA) members killed in the clashes with Hamas at the Ibn Taymiyya Mosque in Gaza during August 2009. The barbwire in the image is representative of Israeli control of the temple mount and the Dome of the Rock. The latter is recognized and revered by all Muslims, but it is a powerful symbol of Palestinian self-determination. It was built in 692 A.D. by the Umayyid caliph `Abd al-Malik on the site where Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven in his mi`raj (night journey), and it is considered the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and al-Madina.
On the `Ushshaq al-Hur forum, the image was accompanied by the words of a PIJ’s song: راياتنا سود ……. ولا نهاب اليهود …… في سبيل الله نجود ….. بإرادة وصمود جيشنا الجبار نقود …… نسعى لإزالة إسرائيل من الوجود …. . نحن جند السرايا الأسود (“Our banners are black and we do not fear (nahabu) the Jews; In the path of God we sacrifice [ourselves], willingly and tenaciously; We lead our brave army, striving to wipe out Israel from existence; We are the army of the Saraya (squadrons, i.e. PIJ), the lions”). In the bottom right corner appears the caption: “labbayki ya al-Aqsa” (“we are here at your service, O al-Aqsa”) (It appears the creator of the image has conflated the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa). The text in the center suggests that the designer of the image was “al-Walid.”
The image contains the PIJ (Military Media) logo at the top left, under which the name of the forum appears: “multaqayat `ushshaq al-hur” and a three word slogan: “iman, wa`y, thawra” (“faith, awareness, revolt”). On the right appear two armed fighters.
