I think what is relative here is to identify the history of conflicts between the "sons of Isaac" and the "sons of Ishmael".
To my knowledge, it comes down to the same old "blood lineage" hierarchy where Ishmael is considered somewhat "bastardized" (lessor) for being begotten through Hagar (servant) and not Sarah (the rightful wife).
It comes down to the chosenist, divinely-sanctioned entitlements.
So are you saying that the implementations by way of the entitlement mindset were 'instigated' by Brit/US?
Isn't it a case of Christianity being the child protecting its mama (Judaism) as reflected in the judeo-xtian bible?
Isn't it the Cain-Abel and Shem/Ham cursey-poo, first-born, elder hier, divine hier, divine blood shenanigans just repeating itself.
...WE are the rightful hiers
...no WE are the rightful hiers
...no way, WE ARE!!!
...NO, WE ARE!!!
Perhaps our minds are clouded by the biased acceptance of the pity and victim card which allows Israel to pose for holy pictures instead of being held accountable for its dirt. This goes hand in hand with the Western mindset.
The native Amerindian is just this hemisphere's 'Palestinians'.
The Aborigine is just Australia's Palestinians.
Pope Nicholas declared the entire pigmented world as Palestinians.
Holy written divine justification yielded a manifest destiny mindset. That mindset is globally indoctrinated within white and male supremacy.
The most impactful aspect of Israel's protectionism is the fact that xtians are indoctrinated with the like mind of chosen-peopleism, chosen-landism and justification via holy writs. It is hard to turn around and denounce what someone else does when they stand for the same worldview as you.
Americans whose cities and comforts are built upon ancient sacred grounds of murdered Amerindians by way of divine justification would be very hypocritical telling the Israelis to chill out when their religious basis is identical.
Just like how on these boards you have ones in full support of IMPERIALISM and REGIMES and CONQUERINGS and CONTROLLERS and RULERS and AUTHORATIONALISM...its just that they feel the wrong ones are in place.
In other words, it is the spiritual ideology of divine sanctioning that is the culprit.
