This scenario was the same one played out in the 1500s. Spanish invaders had their own "Doctrine of Discovery" which stated that any lands owned by non-Christians could be seized. They got through the loop-hole of offering peace to the native inhabitants by reading a script (in Spanish of course!) to the people, who obviously could neither agree nor object. How sad that some still believe this nonsense.
