By Harold A. Monteau
Jewish people do not own the term "genocide." They certainly have every right to invoke their mantra, "Never Forge" when reminding the world that the Nazi tried to murder every Jew in Europe. However, the Jewish People must recognize that we American Indians also experienced murder our holocaust with some putting the casualty number at 20 Million or more. We have as much right to remind the world to "Never Forget" the holocaust that was perpetrated on the American Indian People and how, in this day and age, we still must fight off attacks on our homelands, our sovereignty, our people and our "race" that are meant to bring about our "disappearance."
The quoted language is the from the "Conventions against Genocide" that were put in place after the Jewish Holocaust during World War II. The Conventions recognize that murder is only one way to achieve the "disappearance" of a people.
I think Monteau is criticizing only the politicians who demand support for Israel but won't provide equal support for America's Indian nations. That applies to non-Jewish as well as Jewish politicians.
Incidentally, it's hilarious seeing anti-Indian crusader Blumenthal caught in a bald-faced lie. Yeah, I cured the common cold...or had a common cold...or whatever. I hope the Democrats can find a better candidate who isn't a DINO (Democrat in name only).
