Contrary to Ira Sharkanskys suggestion, Reuvenys 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 Sharkanskys emotional and sometimes-inflammatory critique reinforces the finding that Israel is in fact a colonialist state.
