From the ashes of Gaza

According to the moderation, my opinions are "legally problematic" and thus not permitted here on Cif.
What it is that is "legally problematic" about them, I haven't a clue, and the moderation won't "go into anymore detail", so if anyone else can tell me, I'd appreciate it. Here's the LINK.
I notice that a lot of other comments have also been removed. Also for being "legally problematic"?
2nd Post (which was not removed)
It seems to be ingrained in human nature, when confronted with a superior culture, either to want to destroy it (presumably because of the perceived threat it poses, even if only to one's self-image), or to merge with it, which, when it happens on a large scale, would overwhelm the superior culture and destroy it anyway.
Ring any bells . . . ?
