    they know Israel only through the internet. Thus, they believe that Israelis are "white" settlers who dispossessed the "native" Palestinians. Of course, they ignore the fact that ever since the second aliya (wave of Jewish immigration to Palestine), the Zionist movement was no longer vcolonialist. They ignore also the fact the the father of left-wing Zionism, Ber Borochov despised colonialism. And don't expect them to be aware of the fact that Ben Gurion proposed to create a Semitic confederation uniting Jews and Arabs. They are also unaware of the fact that Zionists justified the creation of a Jewish state in a territory that was already populated, not by invoking "historical rights" unlike what anti-Zionists pretend, but rather because of the landless of the Jewish people. As I said, they know Israel only through extreme-left online magazines. Therefore, the all they see about Israelis is that they are "white". Therefore, they don't understand why Israel does not apologize for existing (like Canada or Australia for example). This is why they despise Israel.
