    While the "limited-mentality right" talk-backers are always quick to point their fingers at the Americans for their treatment of the American Indians, how do their descendants behave today? Go to any inner-city school and you will see people of every color, stripe and ethnicity getting along. Of course you do have racists or bad apples in any group. But if Americans went on a rampage equal to what the Settler Thugs are doing, they would have been shot down or taken down with extreme force, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or race. So go ahead, link up some schools in Gaza as well. Invite the Gazan/Palestinian Diaspora to participate. Go to inner-city NY or Phillie where Jews, Moslems, Blacks and Latins study, work, play and get along. Stop blaming using what Americans did to American Indians 100 years ago (can any American today change what someone did 5 generations ago?). The Hispanics, Whites, Jews and Moslems voted for a black man and no matter what his performance, it is indicative of the mentality of an very open-minded population, or at least a heck of lot more open minded than Israel. So hook up video-conferencing with the inner-city Jews. the Blacks, Hispanics and Moslems. Take a real lesson. In the US if a school-child spit on a religious man of any cloth, his or her parents would beat their arse blue.
