(This is all fictional and I'm just making this up)

No one in Arizona knows what to do with the misplaced Iroquois Indian tribes. They were kicked off their land in upstate New York in the late 17th century and sent to the southwest where EVERYONE hates them. It's typical bigotry that would be solved by assimilation anywhere else, but the Iroquois AND the Arizonians don't want that.

One thing the Arizonians AND the Iroquois can agree on however is that both their holy books agree upstate New York is where they belong. It was written 2000 years before that the Iroquois must return to New York at some point for the prophecy to be

Then something goes very wrong. There is a large scale massacre of Iroquois. Millions are murdered. The leader of the genocide is toppled and the genocide is stopped. The surviving Iroquois and the rest of the world are left to wonder what to do with the millions of Iroquois still living in and around Arizona.

"Assimilation is impossible after such wrongs have been committed!" The populace of the United States chanted.

John McCain who owns a great deal of land and has an influential say in New York has a soft spot for the Iroquois problem.

He says "Why don't we just give them the land in New York and just give them the whole state? It will solve a great deal of our current problems!"

His advisor in the matter replies with "Well sir New York has a large population of people already living there. By moving in all of these Iroquois many New Yorkers will be completely disenfranchised and displaced".

"It is of no matter," McCain replies "the land was originally the Iroquois anyways".

And so McCain lobbied and eventually gave the entire state of New York to the Iroquois Nation. New Yorkers were pushed off their lands. The Iroquois nation took the entire city of New York (because it was originally a burial and worship ground during the 1st century BC) and began a system that made it near impossible for non-Iroquois (aka native New Yorkers) to get jobs or continue their lives as before.

Violence ensued on either side with massacres of innocent people spurring the fires of hatred. The E.U. who was also sympathetic with the Iroquois cause, pumped tons of money and gave the Iroquois their most elite and technologically advanced weapons. The native New Yorkers are outgunned and starving, resort to all kinds of warfare.

New Yorkers are branded terrorists by the E.U. media and government.

What you call a terrorist, they call a freedom fighter.

I don't feel like typing this story anymore. You get the idea.

But your fictional story is missing a bunch of fictional history for context and since were doing fictitious

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently at the U.N. and made the world community smile.

A representative from Israel began-'Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses. When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath!' He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Palestinian had stolen them.'

The Palestinian representative jumped up furiously and shouted, 'What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then.'

The Israeli representative smiled and said 'And now that I have made that clear, I will begin my speech.'
