“The decolonization narrative has dehumanized Israelis to the extent that otherwise rational people excuse, deny, or support barbarity.” ☞ Althouse

“It holds that Israel is an ‘imperialist-colonialist’ force, that Israelis are ‘settler-colonialists,’ and that Palestinians have a right to eliminate their oppressors…. It casts Israelis as ‘white’ or ‘white-adjacent’ and Palestinians as ‘people of color.’ This ideology, powerful in the academy but long overdue for serious challenge, is a toxic, historically nonsensical mix of Marxist theory, Soviet propaganda, and traditional anti-Semitism from the Middle Ages and the 19th century.”
