Synonyms of "Suspicion" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between suspicion and doubt ?
A: When you're suspicious, you think that something bad has happened, or that someone has done something wrong.

When you have doubt or are doubtful, you don't believe something someone has told you.

Example: "I was suspicious of Alice, she looked like she was up to no good."

Example: "I doubt that he actually told the truth."

Usually, the connotation is that suspense is based on feeling and no evidence, while when you're doubting someone, you've got actual evidence and less feeling to have a reason not to trust someone.
Q: What is the difference between to dispel suspicion and to root out suspicion ?
A: The meaning is the same, but the verbs bring different actions to mind.

To dispel is make something go away as if by magic. It was there, but poof! It’s gone.

To root out is to pull a weed out of the ground by its roots so it cannot grow back.

I think either expression is fine because suspicion can be hard to get rid of. Hard work or magic may be needed!

Q: What does "recommend to suspicion that ... " mean?
A: It might be an incorrect translation of what was said, since it doesn't make any sense to me.

But I can infer from the rest of the conversation that the sentence should be something like:

By taking the slaves from the rebels, he's treating those slaves like property, which might suggest he really believes slaves are just property. But then he says he doesn't (think of them as property).
