Those familiar with the genocidal statements made by Israel's right wing leadership towards Palestinians will see the ethos of that ideology in our own history.  The Colonel John Chivington, responsible for the Sand Creek Massacre spoke of Native Americans like right-wing Israelis speak of Palestinians. As the Street Roots article said: 

In a speech delivered in Denver shortly before the massacre, Chivington had publicly advocated for the killing and scalping of all Indian people, including children, declaring, “Nits make lice.”

Compare this with Israel's Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked who said during the last Gaza War:

"They are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses. They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there."
