Reader comment on item: The Left's New Enemy: "Empire"

Oh the irony! Jews (and Samaritans) are the ABORIGINES of Judea and Samaria.

According to their own Extremist Left sensibilities, these Leftists should EMPOWER the ancient, autonomous, and unique indigenous cultures of Jews and Samaritans.

These Leftists should HELP Jews and Samaritans enforce aboriginal sovereignty over their sacred ancestral land - especially their sacred burial grounds (like Hebron) and holy mountains (like Jerusalem).

Greater Israel is a relatively small area. It is exactly the kind of local distinctive sovereignty that the Extreme Left is trying to support. Not only do Jews have a basic human right to indigenous sovereignty over Jewish ancestral land (that is, Judea, especially the areas surrounding Jerusalem), but Jews have the power to defend this right. Jewish sovereignty helps set an example for all native peoples across the planet, from the Sami of Norway to the Incas of South America to the Aborigines of Australia.

If the Extreme Left had any rationality, they would support Jews and Greater Israel as a realistic means to achieve some of the more benign Leftist ideals.

Jews have lived in the areas around Jerusalem for THOUSANDS of years. Actually, according to sacred tribal traditions, the clan of their sacred ancestor Abraham eventually intermarried the local aboriginal Canaanites, forming the tribes of Israel. Eventually all Southern Canaanites became Jews and Samaritans, being citizens of the Kingdoms of Judea and Israel, since the time King David united that area. DNA show Jews and Samaritans share the same gene pool - that is, the Canaanite gene pool! Jews and Samaritans are, in fact, the modern survivors of the ancient Southern Canaanites, who have lived in Judea and Samaria for over TEN THOUSAND years.

Note, the Maronite Christians in Lebanon are likewise the modern survivors of the aboriginal Northern Canaanites (who the Greeks called Phoenicians). The Coptic Christians are the aborigines of ancient Egypt.

Jews, Samaritans, Maronites, Coptics, and others: these are the ancient aborigines, who survived the extreme persecutions by Islamic imperialist colonialists from Arabia.

The 'Arabs' of today are result of Medieval colonists who invaded from Arabia, who violently and fanatically crushed and homogenized the diverse native populations.
