Gearing up for elections, Hamas has published a video which belies their story of a ruined Gaza, hanging on to its fingernails to to "Israeli oppressors."

Under the campaign banner "Gaza is Beautiful," Hamas shows off a lush and luxurious side of Gaza, complete with palm-lined streets and shopping centers.

Hamas' propaganda machines usually show the hungry side of Gaza: poor people, crowded streets, rubble, while officials throw up their hands and plead for supplies.

Hamas, where are you spending your funds?
