"To be or not to be" cartoon

I found this political cartoon while looking for an example of sloganized use of a Hamlet quotation for a talk I'm giving at Tufts this week.  Many of my American hearers have trouble believing that "to be or not to be" can be a passionate call to arms.

It's by the Palestinian artist Naji Salim Hussein al-Ali (1937-1987); you can see more of his work here: http://shaeirrahhal.jeeran.com/selections/archive/2010/6/1059177.html
