Sigh. Yes, there are parallels, and yes, peaceful civil disobedience is a good thing, and yes, justice and human rights come above all, and yes, of course, these conflicts need to end. But conflating Missouri and Jerusalem now doesn't take into account history and the nuance of each situation. Religious ideologies are no small part of this conflict, as much as secular America would like to not believe. Painting every world conflict as colonialism and as a white-brown power struggle is appealing, but dishonest.
