Occupation Nation

Three recent works have added to our understanding of colonial dominion over the Palestinians, challenging the claim that the occupation of Palestinian and Arab land after the June 1967 War was an aberration of the Zionist project. They show how continuities exist between Zionist colonial designs before and after 1948 and 1967. I argue that these works help us in understanding that the colonization of Palestinian land after 1967 is one stage in a longer settler-colonial trajectory. But these works would benefit from taking their analysis even further.
