Palestinians are circulating this on social media
It says: "O, ugly face. I attest to God that I detest you. You have broken our backs, and hijacked our victory, and aided our enemy, and turned our friends against us, and blackmailed our people, and starved our folks, and besieged our lands. You have dropped our cause, and accepted humiliating and permitted debacles. You betrayed Gaza, and prevented dignity. Your grey hair is a shame, and your face is fire, and your goodness is lowly, and your evil is revenge. The tongues of adults, and children have cursed you, o jack ass". (It all rhymes in Arabic except the jackass bit at the end).
