Our article is a response to a previous article published in American Quarterly (2010), by Laura Pulido and David Lloyd, “On the Long Shadow of the Settler: On Israeli and US Colonialism.” By engaging in this discussion, we hope to provide further historical information, clarifying some salient differences between nineteenth-century settler colonialism in the United States and Israeli twenty-first-century settler colonialism on the West Bank. Recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip that have left over two thousand Palestinians dead, mostly civilians, and current Israeli plans to take over more lands on the West Bank call for world condemnation of these tragic events, an end to the siege of Gaza, and an end to US support of Israel to the tune of $3 billion in military aid annually.
