Lincoln did not compromise on the issue of Slavery and that should be understood. In spite of everything and in spite of the mix motivations of his policy, he did sign the Emancipation Proclamation and free the slaves and end, at least in a legal sense, the concept of people being able to own other people, and being capable of using the power of the state to enforce such "master/property" human relationships. The equivalent in the Israeli context would be to end Israeli rule over people who are not its citizens, have no civil rights, and are barred from moving freely in their own country. These same people also have had and continue to have their land and water taken away from them and given to a series of cities in which they can not live and only people from the outside move to and live in.
