One of the key founding arguments in Israel's establishment was based on the historical principle that they were there first. That may be true but I don't see us giving New York back to the Indians so it is a moral principle I don't accept. The fact is land was taken from Palestinians and the Arab community never accepted the terms of the initial UN resolution, hence there has been turmoil ever since with American spending billions of dollars over the years in foreign aid more so to Israel — again, because of a strong lobbying groups in America influencing our politicians. Right now, Israel is acting against United Nations resolutions in establishing Jewish settlements in both Gaza and the West Bank, a big issue the Obama administration is trying to address in acting as a mediator in negotiating between the Palestinians and the Jews. We, as Americans, cannot think of ourselves as a just people if we do not try to establish equity for all people. No, America is not going to give back New York to the Indians but it has been a blight in our history the treatment of Native Americans so if we learned anything, let's not repeat a tragic period of our history.
