The problem with Amira Hass's silly analogy is that the natives of North America suffered the second worst racist genocide in human history, at least 10 million North American Indians died of murder and starvation and disease, second only to African slavery trade in which 20 million Africans died. When you also include the Australian Aboriginals who were still legally hunted as animals only 150 years ago, two entire continents, 10,000 times the land area of all of Israel, were illegaly stolen from their rightful owners and replaced illegally with settler entities now called the United States of America, Canada, and Australia. And of course not a single North American Indian or Australian Aboriginal majority country exists anywhere on earth for them to call thier homeland. In contrast to the Palestinans, the Palestinian population has *increased* by at least 10 times since 1948, the exact opposite of what happend in the N.A. Indian genocide. And the Palestinians have 21 other Arab majority states which share the same culture, language, and religion as them to live if they want, unlike the Indians and Aboriginals who have nothing left of their culture or religion or language anywhere on earth, a cultural genocide as well as physical.
