Israel is fundamentally a colonial state
26 October, 2017
• FOR all the terrible circumstances of its beginnings, Israel is fundamentally a colonial state.
It is based on the forced expulsion of its indigenous population, the Palestinians.
It does not belittle the victims of the Holocaust to point out that the forced expropriation of someone else’s land by an army of imported, extremist, and violent settlers is, in itself, a crime against humanity.
