Civil warfare and tribal war is not the same as oppressive government killing.
Distinguish, please? What are tribes but small governments? What is a civil war but a drastic way of deciding who is the government? How do you tell oppressive government killing from unoppressive killing?
Hama and black Septmeber were bad no doubt, but they were not against Syrians or Jordanians. So not really their 'own people.' These are also one off events and not a 50 year systematic attempt to steal land.
Eh? Black September was the Jordanian army's suppression of the PLO's "state within a state" in Jordan. Hama is a town in Syria where the Muslim Brotherhood rebelled. the Syrian army moved in to suppress them and killed between ten and twenty five thousand Syrian civilians.
In regard to Palestine never having solidarity. Palestinians DID however, own their homes which is good enough for me.
Certainly. However it was only very recently that the Palestinian leadership followed the UN in recognising Israel's existence in any way and sio could argue the case legally.
