Born American-Indian, Born Palestinian

In seeing a bigger world, we see links, similar tragedies, similar struggles,

and we see solidarity

American Indian activist Russell Means said …what is happening now to Palestinians is what happened to American Indians.

“Every policy the Palestinians are now enduring was practiced on the American Indian,” Means said on the Blog Talk Radio show, hosted by Brenda Golden, Muskoke Creek. “What the American Indian Movement says is that the American Indians are the Palestinians of the United States, and the Palestinians are the American Indians of the Middle East.”
