How is #furgeson unlike the West Bank

How is #furgeson unlike the West Bank? Three big differences:
  1. The Ferguson police have used military grade equipment to disperse violently-minded rioters who have come armed with guns and Molotov cocktails - yet, to date, have not killed a single one of them. (The IDF often ends up killing rioters) 
  2. Ultimately the people of Ferguson will be able to settle their grievances in the courts or at the polls. (Palestinians have no such luck) 
  3. There is no genocide-minded terrorist organization in Ferguson coordinating the riots or attempting to recruit and train the rioters for more violent work (perhaps because none of the rioters have been shot and because ultimately they can turn to the legal system or the ballot box for a remedy)
