Does the situation of the Palestinians seem similar to that of the Native Americans during the post civil war period?

no not to me I believe according to the Bible the land belongs to the Jews.

Manifest destiny?

No, these are two very different situations.

In what way different?

19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/26/03 - 2:33:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Many, many ways. But please don't get me started.

I think that possibly the Israelis are simply exporting a very succesfull final solution policy.

I don't see any major difference between the two,cept the very obvious.

Yeah, I would have to agree. If the US was terrorising the native Americans now, as the Israelis are terrorising the Palestinians (and when the Palestinians fight back, they are called terrorists... go figure. You can't even defend your own land anymore), the world would be on the side of the Americans (for some unfathomable reason). Israel has no right to be in Palestine (Bible or no Bible), as the Europeans had no right to settle in America. If the native Americans tried to migrate, I'll bet no country would want them, just like no country wants the Palestinians. Yep, the two situations are definitely similar.

When I say "on the side of the Americans", I meant on the side of the European settlers.

Yes, but then you could say it's similiar to the english who landed in Australia and killed the abo's.
19 yrs ago - Wednesday 9/10/03 - 10:39:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I thought about that too.

No the Isrealis are not wipeing out the Palestinians like we did the Indians.

flash_sav, swap the words 'Palestinians' and 'Israelis' in your post and you've got it right.

It's a bit more tricky than that.
But the basic idea, that the Palestinians are being pushed out of land that is their's because they are weaker...yes.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/8/03 - 3:44:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Who says the land is their's? The Jews have been there since the beginning of time. The problem is the Palestinians don't want to share the land, they want it all.

"The Jews" mainly turned up after WWI and WW2.

Land belongs to individuals not races. Like the hosue belonging to the parents of the girl who blew up the restuarant last week... since demolidhed by Israeli security forces.

I wonder what court Timothy VcVieghs parents would be running to if their house was demolished after the Oaklahoma bombing.

Sometimes I marvel at the absolute denial that goes on.

Many Jews immigrated to Israel after WWI and WWII because it is the Jewish homeland. The Jews were there at the time of Christ. In the year 1004 B.C. King David establishes Jerusalem as the capital of the Kingdom of Israel, 40 years later King Solomon builds the First Temple as the religious and spiritual center of the Jewish People.

The Indians fought for their land and they killed the people who came on it with warriors. When they went out on raiding parties they used warriors. Palestinians are using kids and recently women to do these things. The men are often told that if they do not run in with a bomb strapped to their chest then famly memebers will die. The indians were overun out of greed. The palstinians are being pushed back because Israel is creating a comfort zone for its people. And lets not forget that Israel is reclaiming lands tacken from them in the past and was given to them by God.
