El Alamo

Here in the land of the free and the home of five hundred and sixty-six federally recognized Native American tribes, containing vast numbers of braves, the hypocrisy of a country that values the pro-Israel lobby and denies AIM (American Indian Movement) is very interesting. The underlying premise of the Jew's right to the land of Palestine is based on historical (and Biblical) precedent based on the Hebrew tribe's previous tenancy of the Holy land. So, if one is to extrapolate on this -- if the Jews have a historical right to Palestine, then Native Americans have a historical right to America. This would naturally make one think that the two groups would be brothers in arms*.

The main sticking point between the two factions is probably that Native Americans don't feel compelled to send vast amounts of money to Israel to pave the way for Armageddon as do so many American Christian groups. It fascinates me that these organizations are so intellectually artless as to believe that the Israelis welcome their meddling and monies because they too are pining for the destruction of their homeland in a horrific bloodbath on the plains of Megiddo. By now, Native Americans recognize a hoodwink when they see one.

Anyway...for the sake of a good discussion -- What if here in Texas the Coahuiltlican tribe (let's just go back to the 1700's for historical reference) was to partition off San Antonio and put all the Tejanos (we'll call all non-Native Americans living on the land Tejanos) behind barbed wire and concrete barriers and declare the Alamo, because of the remains of their ancestors resting there, sacred ground? Well, according to the precedent set by the State of Israel, this would be just fine and, as in the case of Israel, would cause the Coahuiltlicans to receive prodigious amounts of money from all kinds of interesting and crazy people. I know for a fact that Phil Collins would be writing big checks. It would probably cause some ill will between the Coahuiltlicans and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and the ancestors of Davy Crockett and John Wayne -- they all claim the Alamo as sacred ground. But, no matter, the Coahuiltlicans were here first and can prove it. Kind of a sticky wickiup isn't it?

*It can be argued that Native Americans were also victims of systematic genocide
