    "American killed by isolated tribe on island in Andamans"

    "Members of an isolated Indian tribe armed with bows and arrows have
    killed an American who encroached on their remote island, police said.
    John Allen Chau, 27, is believed to have paid fishermen to ferry him
    to North Sentinel Island, home to a 30,000-year-old tribe known to
    aggressively repel outsiders."

    "He said Chau, who some Christian groups have claimed was a missionary,
    had been trying to find ways to reach North Sentinel Island ..."

    "The Sentinelese violently resist contact with outsiders.
    In 2006, two Indian fishermen who moored their boat to sleep were
    killed when the vessel broke loose and drifted on to the shore..."

    "Chau had visited the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the past
    and told locals he had a strong desire to visit the Sentinelese and
    preach to them, a police source told Reuters."

    "Indian police said a murder case had been registered against
    “unknown tribesmen” and seven people arrested for helping Chau
    reach the island."

    Maybe you could visit the island and explain to the natives that their behavior is wrong.

    Why is Quackquack advocating that I violate the law?
    It's illegal for unauthorized persons (e.g. John Allen Chau) to visit that island.
    That's why the police have arrested people who allegedly helped the American get there.

    Now if these were peace loving conservative Christians, Left wingers would send wave after wave of infiltrators to destroy the island.

    Surely someone as wise as you could get a special disposition to visit the Island. I really think you should go.

    How can Left wingers ever achieve their one world socialist utopia with such opposition?

    Just think of the social injustice going on there.

    Why is that OK but not elsewhere?

    I am not an anthropologist specializing in the study of the Sentinelese.

    "Starting in the 1960s, anthropologists – protected by armed guards – succeeded
    first in exchanging gifts, then conducting field visits with the tribe starting, but
    abandoned their efforts around 25 years ago."

    Contrary to the troll Quackquack's implied malicious hope for my fate, no anthropologists
    are known to have been killed or physically harmed during their field visits.

    Do not some, if not many, Americans who support President Trump approve of
    using violence against migrants attempting to enter the USA?

    John Allen Chau illegally entered the (protected) island of the Sentinelese.

    Would Quackquack like to explain to his fellow racist Americans that it's wrong
    to initiate violence against people who illegally enter the USA?

    People don't want blood shed, they just want a wall.

    So that is why Trump sent thousands of troops to the border, so there will be no blood shed. Makes perfect sense. If you are a sociopath that is.

    I wouldn't recommend buying a return ticket. 😛

    I would like nothing more than find an nice beautiful island for peace loving Christian Conservatives everywhere.

    We don't bother you. You don't bother us.

    In other news stories, it says that they believe he has visited the island 4 or 5 times previously. It makes me wonder if these were simply excursions in which he met no one else or if he had ever made contact with them. It's an interestign story.

    I think it was a delusional act that, sadly, becomes something people make light of. Not that I have seen anyone here do it, but I have seen people make fun of him and laugh about this on social media.

    This is a bit like people in the past who have gone into Lion enclosures with a Bible opened at the Book of Daniel.
