Anyone who has written a book written by a non-marxist scholar, knows that while early Zionists (those of the late 19th Century) were colonialist, ever since the 2nd aliya, the Zionist movement became outspokenly anti-Zionist. Anyone who's read Ber Borochov, the spiritual father of the 2nd aliyah, knows that he loathed colonialism. Furthermore, between the 1910's and the 1930's, sevel times, the Zionist movement offered an alliance Arab nationalists. It started in 1913, when the Zionist movement sent a delegation to the First Arab National Congress held in Paris, and it continued until the Arab uprising of 1936. In 1934, Ben Gurion went as far as proposing the creation of a ''Semitic confederation'' to Musa Alami, which would have united the Jews and Arabs. Not bad for a ''colonialist''!
