    And there's another key difference: The US, unlike Israel, has actually recognized the sovereignty of the Native Americans over their own territory. The Natives can make their own laws, govern as they see fit, have their own law enforcement agencies, and do anything else that a quasi-nation can do. Israel doesn't even recognize the basic Human rights of the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. In fact, Israel allows one terrorist act after another against the Pals, and even when they do take action, it's a mere slap on the wrist, and you convene some committee who'll try to whitewash and even legalize the Israeli terrorism. Who are you to speak when you allow so much terrorism to continue because it was done by one of your own? At least we actually punish our own when they break the law!
