Though it might be stating the obvious, I want to clarify my stance on Zionism vs. compensation for Aboriginals:
I disagree with Zionism, but support heavy compensation in land and resources for the Aboriginal people. Obviously, it would have made more sense had America and Western powers funneled everything they had into creating a Jewish state into creating a high-quality living environment for the Aboriginal people.
The reason I disagree with Zionism is the same reason I don’t agree with the Hakka diaspora annexing a plot of land near the Yellow River to create a state for themselves at the expense of the people currently living there: roughly 2000 years is just too long a period of time, in my opinion. The people settled there likely having nothing to do with those who were responsible for the original loss of land. It’s too psychotic to commit slow genocide against an innocent population for crimes they are not connected to.
However, the Aboriginal people are still being victimized by the same overall energy (ie. general diaspora of people, general cultural mentality, etc.) that caused untold destruction and suffering to their populations upon its arrival to the Americas not that long ago. It’s a circumstance where one group of people seriously damaged the lifestyle of another group of people, are able to provide compensation, and probably should.
