    The US government has paid much in compensation for lands which were stolen during the 18th and 19th century. The 'Indians' are full Citizens of the United States of America. WHEN Israel makes ALL Palestinians FULL citizens AND compensates them for lands appropriate since November 1947, then Israel and it's supporters will have an argument that it's experience with the Palestinians is the same as the American experience with the 'Indians." We have tried to ameliorate and remediate the sins of our forefathers. When Israel starts acting like a civilized 21st century nation with the decency the USA showed with the passage of the Snyder Act of 1924 then Israel and Jeffrey Brock will have a tiny bit of argument. If then if Israel were to make Palestinians full citizens then there would be no need for that smarmy and uneducated argument in the first place.
