    James. While some forms of colonialism do, in fact, have a metropol which is separated geographically from the colony, settler-colonialism, the kind we see in South Africa and the kind that groups like the Jewish Colonization Societies of various Eur countries explicitly promoted (these are their words, not mine) does not. As for, individuals bearing responsibility for the acts of their group: First off, we have very well documented evidence that civilians were dispossessed of their land in Al-Nakba. But more importantly, I believe youa are calling for a policy of collective punishment. Should Jews in Tel-Aviv be punished for the actions of the settlers in Hevron then, too? After all, "how do you know who "participated", who was a civilian. Individuals have often had to pay the consequences for the wrong acts of their group." If you want to stick to this rediculous position, then you should apply it evenly to people, regardless of race or religion
