  •  Aren't we all related after all? (0+ / 0-)

    We are all human brothers and sisters. So, the same could be said of the European genocide of Native Americans.

    •  We're all cousins, but some are closer than that (0+ / 0-)

      Israelis and Palestinians - for that matter Israelis and all Arabic peoples - aren't just cousins, they're brothers.

      Quite literally, if you believe the myth, shared by both sides, of their origin as the two sons of Abraham.

      Abraham + Sarah = Isaac (Hebrews/Jews/Israelis); Abraham + Hagar = Ishmael (all the other Semites, including Palestinians).

      Hebrew is a Semitic language. Arabic is a Semitic language.

      Israelis are Semites. Arabs, Jordanians, Palestinians, etc. are Semites.

      One could wish they would learn from the story of Jacob and Esau, who, after a lot of bad blood and hard feelings due to Jacob having usurped Esau's birthright, eventually worked out forgiveness. But it took a lot of doing, and each of them had to succeed by their own efforts first.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
