Aboriginal in Canada tells Palestinian Arabs to stop comparing themselves to his people

“The Palestinians are not like us. Their fight is not our fight. We natives believe in bringing about change peacefully, and we refuse to be affiliated with anyone who engages in violence targeting civilians. I cannot remain silent and allow the Palestinians to gain credibility at our expense by claiming commonality with us. I cannot stand by while they trivialize our plight by tying it to theirs, which is largely self-inflicted. Our population of over 65 million was violently reduced to a mere 10 million, a slaughter unprecedented in human history. To compare that in whatever way to the Palestinians’ story is deeply offensive to me. The Palestinians did lose the land they claim is theirs, but they were repeatedly given the opportunity to build their state on it and to partner with the Jews — and they persistently refused peace overtures and chose war. We were never given that chance. We never made that choice.”

    Praise God…..what wonderful words outlining the truth, hats off to the Native Chief for disassociating from those who seek to piggy back their struggle withing Canada. He is right, the Arabs lost no land, they did not own any land to begin with, just because you occupy an area, does not mean you own it. It’s like saying the lease holders have no power with the tenants. We seen this play out in New Orleans with many victims of hurricane Katrina, most of the individuals were renting properties, they were not the owners…..

    The Natives have a battle and that battle can be won, if they are willing to change, adapt and grow there community in partnering Canadian options. Natives are Canada original people, imagine the tourism that can be developed in the creation of a Native tour of the reservations, that can be revived and contain areas for tourism etc….not just casinos. But old world Las Vegas like “Tee Pee” canvas cities with canoes and streams running tourist throughout the city or New native capitol, which should be established 100%.

  2. This was great to read in comparison to the “Mohawk Warrior” OCAP’s Shawn Brant who likes to teach native youth that “their struggles” are the same as the Palestinians and the root of all their problems are the Jews.

    He even gives speeches that it is the same situation for “Blacks” and that the slave trade was created and controlled by Jews.

    It is time for the native communities to out Shwan Brant for the antisemite he is.

      To the individual that responded: Great cross-referencing and showing us that there are other opinions among the natives. Just to pass on a bit of information to you, the term “black” does not exist, it does not define nor express nationality, dark complexion people in America are descendants of Egyptian, Ethopian and other regions, many were already in America prior to 1492, and were not slaves.
      According to Old German, black means pale. The term was coined by white Supremist who exercised power through arms to subject many dark skinned individuals. Just wanted to clarify the term for you, especially if you have no clue of the true history of people of color.
