Black Man Led on Rope by Police Is Mentally Ill, His Family Says

A photograph of the man's arrest in Galveston, Tex., was shared widely on social media, conjuring for many images of slavery.

Really interesting story.

Sounds very similar to the forces that created Zionists and Zionism.

The early Zionists felt rejected by Zionism but entitled to the fruits of other people's property and labour.

The first ones who went to Palestine with their sticks and guns found property to be very easy to steal. It was much, much more difficult to exploit people's labour - especially as they hated the people they'd robbed and had no intention of employing them.

But employing each other was ridiculously difficult too - what use were people with soft hands and round tummies?

Around half of the First Aliyah went back to their middle class families in Poland and Vilnius - but still boasted of what it was like in the land of milk and honey and how easy it was to steal $millions worth of land.

This lead to a second and third and fourth wave of disaffected children of pious parents deciding they could be land-grabbers too.

No.

It's not similar at all.

This was one story about one boy who fell in with a bad crowd, but then grew up and turned away from hate.

Every word true (except for two typos):

The early Zionists felt rejected by Zionism Judaism but entitled to the fruits of other people's property and labour.

The first ones who went to Palestine with their sticks and guns found property to be very easy to steal. It was much, much more difficult to exploit people's labour - especially as they hated the people they'd robbed and had no intention of employing them.

Around half of the First Aliyah went back to their middle class families in Poland and Vilnius - but still boasted of what it was like in the land of milk and honey and how easy it was would be to steal $millions worth of land.

This lead to a second and third and fourth wave of disaffected children of pious parents deciding they could be land-grabbers too.
