Suuuper off topic but I was just watching episode 5 of the Book of Boba Fett and came to the realization that the Mandalorians are a (unintentional??) perfect parallel for Jews immediately after the destruction of the Temple.
They are also an ethnoreligion with converts and different sects. Different sects, whose internal strife led to an outside Imperial Power destroying their homeland, only those outside Mandalore/Jerusalem survived, and they seek to retake the homeland? Idk man but it seems like they are Jews…
