When equal rights are infringed upon, whether because of the color of one's skin or religion, because of security or politics, it is all about one group's accumulation of capital at the expense of another group's equal rights. This is insupportable, but that is exactly what America is doing by giving Israel power to step on the Palestinian people. Since Israel is not willing to embrace full equality, the substitute is full sovereignty for the unequal people. In the interim we see militant groups like Hamas spring up and many people suffer needlessly. Hopefully the Palestinian state will not follow Israel's cue but be based on a Constitution and a bill guaranteeing inalienable human rights.
