I write these words in a very posh neighborhood of Chicago with street names such as Cherokee Road, Indian Tree Drive and Blackhawk Road. It’s a white/Jewish area with a 0.18% Native American population (source). This was once Indian territory. So where have they all gone?
Why do Americans uncritically support Israel?
One reason surely must be that they are *kindred spirits*: the White American settlers ethnically cleansed the indigenous Indian tribes from their land in Chicago, just as the Jewish Zionists ethnically cleansed Palestinian Christian and Muslim Arabs from their homelands. This removal of peoples continues today in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The US President, Congress and Senate support this occupation politically, economically and militarily. Similarly in the USA (according to Wiki),
‘Indian removal was a policy of the United States government in the 19th century whereby Native Americans were forcibly removed from their ancestral homelands in the eastern United States to lands west of the Mississippi River, thereafter known as Indian Territory….which clearly contributed to devastation in numbers, freedom and prosperity for those displaced’.
A policy mirrored by the Israeli occupiers in Palestine today. USA & Israel shared and share a common policy objective: the ethnic cleansing of indigenous peoples to ensure the economic and political domination of one people by another.
Birds of a feather flock together.
