If you did not note, I didn't specifically call native Americans savages, I called all humans (especially Western/European whites) savages and I specifically said that natives were also savages, although to a far lesser degree than the Europeans. I believe all humans are savages and I suggest you read it again. As for the Indian way of life (well not know, but prior to European invasion), i certainly find it admirable and I often wish humans remained hunter/gatherers or low level farmers, despite the long work days, little leasure time and the short life expectencies, as it seems like a far less savage and moronic way of life.



You called us "savages" yet it was the Europeans whom were and still are the savages.

Correct, point being?



You call us minorities that have been reduced to reservations and casinos, you couldn't be further from the truth.

I'm simply pointing out the ongoing injustices. I'm sure there are many Indians who live a normal 'Western' way of life.



And we are a minority now because of the slaughter of our people by the real "savages", the European thieves that decimated our people and food sources.

So the slaugher of the lesser savages and slightly more civilised (Indians), by the extreme savages (Europeans)



We would hunt and raise our crops and children each day and make love every night.

I'd gladly be part of that society.

As far as I am concerned you are a full blooded savage unless you are part echindna or mountian lion. If you are a human you are a savage.



Just because we lost our land 400 years ago does not mean it wasn't ours and that Europeans didn't steal it.

I am not making an ethical judgement in my comment, nor am I denying your right to kill for your land, I am simply evaluating demographics and the power relationship, of the Palestinians in comparison to the native Indians. I certainly wouldn't mind a native Indian rebeliion. It would make the world and America a particularly interesting place to observe.



Your argument is one of hypocrisy and close mindedness since every comparison you have been presented with has been "failed" in your eyes. You are unwilling to see anything other than what you are focused on.

That is because comparisons tend to suck. Each situation is unique and comparing the Palestinian independence movement to any other sort of diaspora and independence movements is like comparing apples to oranges. Stupid.

So just run of the mill violence, or something more? Time to ask yourself, if its not this attack, will it be the next one that starts something huge like WW3? The more we hear of these stories in todays world, the more we are on the cusp and brink of something big going down. The US will be forced to help Isreal, and welcome to retaliation from Iran... This is not looking good my ats friends...
