"You know that terrorist group we've aided in order to undermine Fatah for the past 30 years in an attempt to divide the Palestinians? Yeah, the ones who we caged in Gaza's open-air prison and fire rockets at the same towns we chased their grandparents from. Well, we blame Abbas for everything they do to. Clearly if he cannot control Hamas, who we recently conducted a prisoner swap with with the added bonus of weakening Fatah, he is not worth voting for. Oh, and you don't mind if we build in Gilo, do you? You know, the settlement that only Israel recognises as being legal. Yeah, that's right, one of those that we built to encircle the Palestinian neighbourhoods in Jerusalem so that we can sabotage any negotiations over the city before they even happen."
