Colonialism or Something Else? A Reply to Ira Sharkansky’s Comment
By Rafael Reuveny
This article appeared in the Fall 2008 issue of The Independent Review


Contrary to Ira Sharkansky’s suggestion, Reuveny’s original article (“The Last Colonialist: Israel in the Occupied Territories since 1967”), used the concept colonialism exclusively as a tool for empirical analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, not to assign blame. A deconstruction of Sharkansky’s emotional and sometimes-inflammatory critique reinforces the finding that Israel is in fact a colonialist state.
