Maybe that has something to do with them NOT strapping bombs to their bodies and blowing people up? Just a hunch ...
Think about this:
If native Americans started strapping bombs to their bodies in protest of having their land taken from them, started forming militant groups, obtaining weapons, rockets, mortars and started using them on American citizens - what do you think the Govts response would be? Seriously think about it.
You are leaving out some very important facts in comparing native Americans vs the Palestinians.
Native Americans are not blockaded.
Native Americans are not starved.
Native Americans are not denied medical supplies.
Native Americans are not surpressed.
Native Americans can go anywhere they wish.
Native Americans are given true control over their reservations.
Native Americans make their own laws in their reservations.
Native Americans can work, play, live anywhere in the country.
Native Americans can buy, sell, trade, invest, build buisness anywhere in the USA.
Native Americans are not under any government control
Native Americans have their own form of government on their reservations.
Native Americans are recognized by the US government as soverign peoples.
Now can the Palestinians do any of those things in Gaza udner the Israeli thumb?
