1. And he began to speak to them in parables: A certain man planted a vineyard and made a hedge about it and dug a place for the winefat and built a tower and let it to husbandmen: and went into a far country. 2. And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant to receive of the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. 3. Who, having laid hands on him, beat and sent him away empty. 4. And again he sent to them another servant: and him they wounded in the head and used him reproachfully. 5. And again he sent another, and him they killed: and many others, of whom some they beat, and others they killed. 6. Therefore, having yet one son, most dear to him, he also sent him unto them last of all, saying: They will reverence my son. 7. But the husbandmen said one to another: This is the heir. Come let us kill him and the inheritance shall be ours. 8. And laying hold on him, they killed him and cast him out of the vineyard. 9. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy those husbandmen and will give the vineyard to others.

(Mark 12:1-9, The Parable of the Bad Tenants, Douay-Rheims Bible)

I guess I must be like the Democrats that ignore what doesn't fit their narrative. It says, "come let us kill him" instead of "come let us impeach him."

I suddenly find this parable applicable to some ethical group other than the Israelite or the Palestinians.
