Political Insider contest: what's this Rep. really saying?

I was going to comment on this Middle East pronouncement by Rep. Louie Gohmert, but after going through it a few times I just can't figure out what this guy is saying.

Read it yourself and let me know; there will be a prize for the most creative answer (dinner with George Soros? ). Well, maybe not, but I'd like to hear your interpretations anyway.

Posted on a number of liberal Web sites, here's what the Texas Republican uttered on the House floor in a debate over U.S. policy along the Mexican border:

“The only good news I see out of that is that for so long, I've been greatly concerned with the hypocrisy of this administration telling Israel, "Just let Palestinians build illegal settlements and take over areas that are not theirs. Just let 'em take over." And I thought, "How hypocritical for our U.S. administration to tell Israel, 'just let people take over areas of your country they're not authorized to takeover,' cause we would never allow that here in the U.S." Which brings me to the only good thing about violent illegal alien drug smugglers taking over American soil: At least we're not hypocritical anymore when we tell Israel just to let people take over land that's not theirs. Because now this administration can say, "Look, Israel, we're doing it here. We're letting people take over American soil that they shouldn't. So you can do it, too."

You know, I heard about that big illegal alien settlement in Nacogdoches; next thing you know, they'll be wanting their own state.
