Last Sunday, Jordan’s King Abdulla II met with the king of Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas, in order to bestow upon him the royal seal of approval in connection with the snakes-unite agreement.

Earlier this month, snakes which were holed up for talks in an excessively noisy and heavily polluted cave, in a land not so far away, emerged to much fanfare.  Flashing big smiles, flirting and shaking hands, they promised to not eat each other and rewarded one another with little prizes.

Hamas promised to give Abbas his pen back, and Abbas promised to allow Hamas to keep their guns and assortment of jihadi material.  Abbas further promised to turn the electricity back on in Gaza, and demonstrated how the circuit breaker would work by lighting a long match and blowing it out.

Egypt the host country was not going to be outdone and promised to open the Raffah land crossing, citing that this would ease pressure on the tunnels, as there had been way too many “work accidents” in recent years.  Al-Sisi meanwhile was secretly wishing Egypt had never demanded the Sinai back from Israel.

To seal the deal, Hamas offered Fatah a cool glass of water straight from Gaza and Fatah drank it down greedily, as snakes do.

The snake-talks in Cairo ended with the rival factions walking away giggling and holding hands, blissfully ignorant that the G-d of Israel had already crushed the Serpent’s head and no royal decree on earth can change its condition.
