    You always get Zionists throw that analogy around. There are similitarities with native Indian struggles in America and the Palestinians. Zionist and American colonialists were on a "manifest destiny" trip. There are many similarities with settlers in Palestine today and American colonialists back then. Thank heavens slavery is not kosher . Nevertheless, it's no coincedent Americans support Israel today as they can relate to Zionist colonial spirit. But here is the problem with using the Indian analogy, as to why Israel should return colonized land when America is not asked to do the same? First of all, I can assure you one thing, 230 plus years from now, noone will be asking of "Israel"- to return land if Israel is still on the map. The Americans fought the natives for several hundred years before full conquest and those who support the settlements in Palestine today also support a never ending conflict. So I say, if Israel is around as long as America, has population over 300 million, equal rights for all, it doesn't have to return stolen land. Otherwise, 6 million Jews better have plan B against 300 million ANGRY Arabs? The settlers answer is obviously suicidal. Or let's pretend Israel didn't dismantle settlements in Gaza and Sinai? It's a war Zionists can't win but then again, who ever said they were rational to begin with to live on stolen land.
