Peace on earth in 2009? U.S., Israel say, ‘No thanks’

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

Parallels exist between the establishments of the U.S. and Israel. The U.S. was founded by European settlers who stole the land of Indigenous people who had resided on it for thousands of years. Israel was established and carved out of Palestine, a land already occupied by people who had lived there for thousands of years.

The U.S. and Israel have both demonstrated their unwillingness to peacefully coexist with Indigenous peoples. What they can’t obtain by coercion and intimidation they take by military force.

Both Native Americans and Palestinians have been victims of terrorists obsessed with capitalistic greed and imperialist domination. The U.S. and Israel have been beating their chests Tarzan-style in a war against Gaza, militarily and through starvation.
