    We complain about what other countries do when we act the same way.

    Well, Lebanon doesn’t want to see a few hundred thousand Palestinians joining the ranks of Hezbollah, and Sissi doesn’t want a Palestinian community in the Sinai, especially since he is fighting the kind of islam (Muslim brotherhood) that Hamas follows and that Qatar is trying to promote and infiltrate in Europe. But Sissi could eventually be convinced by the Saudis (who also fight the muslim brotherhood) (and the US) in exchange for a Nobel Peace prize (and some other advantages).

    This seems like something GoComics will remove like the other one they removed. I hope they don’t, not because I agree with the content, but I respect having Ted’s point of view out there.

    Sandy Creek or Wounded Knee??“In 1864, fighting spread to Colorado, after the discovery of gold led to an influx of whites. In November, 1864, a group of Colorado volunteers, under the command of Colonel John M. Chivington (1821-1894), fell on a group of Cheyennes at Sand Creek, where they had gathered under the governor’s protection. “We must kill them big and little,” he told his men. “Nits make lice” (nits are the eggs of lice). The militia slaughtered about 150 Cheyenne, mostly women and children." From Digital History

    The US never wanted Jewish refugees, the Immigration Act of 1924 was designed to keep out East Europeans (aka Jews ) and Asians. Then in the 30’s we turned away Jews fleeing Hitler (even though many of them were well educated) knowning full well they would be killed if they returned to Germany. Then in 1945 after the detail of the Final Solution became known only 10% of American wanted to admit Jewish refugees.

    No one wants Palestinian refugee’s Ted, not a single Arab country. The reason?….They are trouble makers that make demands that if not met, they kill you. Why should we take any?

    Ted, why are you so obsessed with war? If that’s all you can feature, how about trying the war in Ukraine? It’s still going on ya know.

    Seems the problem started when the Jewish refugees were given land that was already occupied by others.

    Native Americans fled and took refuge off their lands to territories not yet the U.S. Treaties were made then, and broken later. Sitting Bull led his Lakota people to Canada for refuge. The Apache took refuge in Mexico.

    Apparently we were much more efficient in the 19th Century than the Israelis are now. Perhaps if they took to the task with the same vim and vigor the Palestinians showed they would be finished by now./s

    I guess Ted is lining up with the whole anti-colonialist narrative condemning evil whites for their historical conquests. How about the bloody spread of Islam centuries ago? Does conquest of the entire Middle East, Eastern Europe and half of Spain count as colonialism?

    Our treatment of the native Americans was unfortunately used as inspiration for other atrocities, including the Holocaust. Hooray for “American Exceptionalism” I guess….

    Although not printed in many books about WWII history, while Hermann Goering was awaiting trial, he pointed out our American expansion westward, by pushing out the Native American tribes, and our Jim Crow laws, and public lynchings. And he asked why the Germans were being treated as criminals.
