They are not the same but very similar: one nation is conquered and it's population set aside. In North America, it's the Indians. In Palestine (now Israel) it's the Palestinians. They're put aside, have virtually no government rights and they have claims over the territory.

To support Jews having rights over Israel (not now, but before Israel was created) would be to say that Indians have rights over the North American continent today. It's an idiotic idea.

BTW: I have nothing againts Jews, I just think that Occidental support for the creation of Israel following WWII is one of the Great political blunders of the XXth Century.

If I am because I think, then, if I talk without thinking, I'm not really talking! Am I?

I think that they are similar enough to draw the comparison. She doesn't think that they are similar in any way, shape or form.
