Re: Which alien race did DS9 do the best episodes with?

^ I too thought Nazi's/Jew's on my first viewing but then at university I was telling a Muslim friend of mine about my love of Trek and he told me how he loved "the one that allegorises the Palestinian situation." I watched it again and saw what he meant. Consider the time DS9 was created - Yasser Arafat, Rabin and the Oslo accords were happening around the same time - fiction usually holds up a mirror to current affairs.

I may be wrong, has anyone ever specifically said what it is an allegory of? Fiction is open to interperation.
