Zionists see Palestinians as Wolves, to be pushed aside by Settlements, or simply slaughtered:

President Washington meets with the Seneca Chief, Red Jacket, 1792, in Philadelphia.

By 1805, Red Jacket had to give this history of a genocide that sounds very close to the genocide against Palestine:

"There was a time when our forefathers owned this great island. Their seats extended from the rising to the setting of the sun. The Great Spirit had made it for the use of the Indians. He had created the buffalo, the deer, and other animals for food. He'd made the bear and the beaver, and their skins served us for clothing. He had scattered them over the country, and had taught us how to take them. He had caused the earth to produce corn for bread. All this He had done for his red children, because He loved them. If we had any disputes about our hunting grounds, they were generally settled without the shedding of much blood.

"But an evil day came upon us. Your forefathers crossed the great waters and landed on this island. Their numbers were small. They found friends and not enemies. They told us they had fled from their own country for fear of wicked men, and had come here to enjoy their religion. *They asked for a small seat.*

"We took pity on them, granted their request, and they sat down amongst us. We gave them corn and meat; they gave us poison in return.

"The white people had now found our country. Tidings were carried back, and more came amongst us. Yet we did not fear them. We took them to be friends. They called us brothers. We believed them, and gave them a large seat. At length their numbers had greatly increased. They wanted more land; they wanted our country. Our eyes were opened, and our minds became uneasy. Wars took place. Indians were hired to fight against Indians, and many of our people were destroyed. They also brought strong liquors among us. It was strong and powerful and has slain thousands.

"Brother: our seats were once large, and yours very small. You have now become a great people, and we have scarcely a place left to spread our blankets. You have got our country, but you are not satisfied; you want to force your religion upon us...

"...Brother: we do not wish to destroy your religion, or to take it from you. We only want to enjoy our own.

"Brother: you say you have not come to get our land or our money, but to enlighten our minds..."



1783: Robbing the Natives and Calling them "Savages"--

Where is the difference between the U.S. genocide against the Native American nations, and the Israeli Genocide against Palestine?

George Washington writing in 1783, sounds exactly like today's Zionist peaceniks, who forcibly defend their White Settlements, and their White State, while cooing about how nice peace is:

Washington writes, about the Native Americans, that they are savages, beasts, wolves in human form:

"when the gradual extension of our settlements will as certainly cause the savage, as the wolf, to retire; both being beasts of prey, tho' they differ in shape."

1776: Robbing the Natives and Calling them "Savages"--

Note also that the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, and adopted unanimously by the Congress on 4 July 1776, refers to Native Americans as "merciless Indian savages".



2008: Robbing the Natives and Calling them "Savages"--

Even today, you see U.S. policy makers fervently explain their kinship with the Zionists.

Both are settlers and mass-murderers of the Earth's original peoples, and can still invent "progressive"-sounding excuses to rob the planet:

"The New Israel and the Old:
"Why Gentile Americans Back the Jewish State"

by Walter Russell Mead

In "Foreign Affiars", the July/August 2008 issue, at:

U.S. settlers felt that only those who would improve the land, settling it densely with extensive farms and building towns, had a real right to it. John Quincy Adams made the case in 1802: "Shall [the Indians] doom an immense region of the globe to perpetual desolation ... ?"

And Thomas Jefferson warned that the Native Americans who failed to learn from the whites and engage in productive agriculture faced a grim fate. They would "relapse into barbarism and misery, lose numbers by war and want, and we shall be obliged to drive them, with the beasts of the forest into the Stony mountains."

Through much of U.S. history, such views resonated not just with backwoodsmen but also with liberal and sophisticated citizens. These arguments had a special meaning when it came to the Holy Land. As pious Americans dwelt on the glories of ancient Jerusalem and the Temple of Solomon, they pictured a magnificent and fertile land -- "a land flowing with milk and honey," as the Bible describes it.

But by the nineteenth century, when first dozens, then hundreds, and ultimately thousands of Americans visited the Holy Land -- and millions more thronged to lectures and presentations to hear reports of these travels -- there was little milk or honey; Palestine was one of the poorest, most backward, and most ramshackle provinces of the Ottoman Empire.

To American eyes, the hillsides and rocky fields of Judea were desolate and empty -- God, many believed, had cursed the land when he sent the Jews into their second exile, which they saw as the Jews' punishment for their failure to recognize Christ as the Messiah. And so, Americans believed, the Jews belonged in the Holy Land, and the Holy Land belonged to the Jews. The Jews would never prosper until they were home and free, and the land would never bloom until its rightful owners returned."


1819: Robbing the Natives and Calling them "Savages"--

Ex-President John Adams wrote, in 1819, to Major Mordecai Noah:

"...Farther I could find it in my heart to wish that you had been at the head of a hundred thousand Israelites . . . & marching with them into Judea & making a conquest of that country & restoring your nation to the dominion of it. For I really wish the Jews again in Judea an independent nation."

Adams wrote that this would "wear away some of the asperities and peculiarities" of what Adams imagined to be the Jewish character, and would cause Jews to convert to Christianity.
