    First of all, Jabotinsky has always been marginal in the Zionist movement. Secondly, in the Iron Wall, he doesn't refer to colonialism, but rather to ''colonization'', which is not the same thing. Anyone who has a little bit of historical knowledge knows that until the 1960's, colonialism and colonization were two distinct concepts. Colonialism, meant imperialism, whereas colonization was a praxis (practice). It was a synonym for settlement activities. Also, in 'The Ethics of the Iron Wall'', Jabotinsky precised his thought. He wrote that he never advocated the subjugation of the Arabs. However, when it comes to a landless people like the Jews, it is morally justified to ask those who already have a territory to give a small part of it to those who are homeless. Furthermore, Jabotinsky wanted to reserve the position of vice-prime minister to an Arab. So don't pretend he wanted to expell the Arabs by all means. Obviously, you know very little about him. I suggest you read a real book rather than relying blindly on extreme-left websites. You and Melissa should educate yourselves a little bit rather than repeating what you read on the internet!
