Pamela “Craziest Bitch On The Internet” Atlas approvingly quotes some nutbar here:
The reality is that the Palestinians in the disputed territories are different from us, because the majority of them are evil. By that, I mean that the problem isn’t just their leaders and the terrorist thugs, the problem is the average person on the street. The butcher, the school teacher, the traffic cop — the majority of them are vile, sick, twisted, evil excuses for human beings and that’s why there is no peace in the region.
So far, so good – your standard eliminationist rhetoric, rendering the proposed enemy subhuman, et cetera et cetera, cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger. But then it takes a whole new twist:
Which leads to a very basic question: if this was happening to Americans, how far would we be willing to go to stop it? The truth is, we already know the answer to that question because our ancestors have had to deal with this sort of savagery when Indians tortured and murdered American settlers. Our response was, depending on the situation, to slaughter them and/or force them to move.
Today, in our very civilized world, we look back with shock and horror at what we did to the Indians — and indeed, some of them didn’t deserve what they got. All too often, our ancestors didn’t make much of an effort to distinguish between friendly, peaceful Indian tribes and murderous, cannibalistic savages. On the other hand, their strategy of massacring our enemies was one that has been used throughout the ages and it has been proven, time and time again, to work — and it certainly worked for us.
Look, I generally avoid commenting on the Israel/Palestine situation, for the very simple reason that it is enormously complex and enormously controversial and I’m pretty sure I’m not going to say anything particularly clever that will magically make things better, but I am willing to go on the record as saying that the centuries-long extinguishing of Native Americans was, you know, very bad, and that comparing suggested policy to it in a light where killing lots and lots of Injuns is viewed as an honest-to-god Good Thing is more or less the definition of absolutely fucking insane.
(There are some who might care to compare the respective body counts between the Native Americans and the settler-Americans in this “protracted war” between the “murderous, cannibalistic savages” and the good god-fearing white folks, and then the body counts of the Israelis and Palestinians. Absent of all other considerations and recriminations for crimes both real and imagined, one thing can be unambiguously stated as fact: the body counts for the Native Americans and the Palestinians were/are much, much higher than their opposite numbers.
 One might also note that the cannibalistic savages bedeviling the brave settlers were not, in fact, cannibalistic at all.
