Zionism is a kind of European colonialism that began in the late 1800’s long before the Holocaust in Europe. Zionism’s goal is and has always been to establish a Jewish state on land already inhabited by an indigenous Palestinian people. Zionism
as a colonial project was explained by Vladimir Ze’ev Jabotinsky, one of its chief architects, in 1923: “We can talk as much as
we want about our good intentions but they understand as well as we what is not good for them. They look upon Palestine with the same instinctive love and true fervor that any Aztec looked upon his Mexico or any Sioux looked upon his prairie…Thus we conclude that we cannot promise anything to the Arabs of the land of Israel or the Arab countries. Their voluntary agreement
is out of the question. Zionist colonization even the most restricted, must either be terminated or carried out in defiance of
the will of the native population. Thus colonization, can therefore continue and develop only under the protection of a force
independent of the local population-an iron wall which the native population cannot break through. This is in toto our policy
towards the Arabs. To formulate it any other way would only be hypocrisy.”
