The paper argues that the Israel-Palestine conflict should be profitably interpreted through the lens of settler colonial studies. The structural distinction between colonialism, which succeeds by keeping colonizer and colonized separate, and settler colonialism, where ultimate success is achieved when the settlers are ‘‘indigenized’’ and cease to be settlers, should be noted. In the light of this distinction, we can see how the Occupation is failing as a settler colonial project while obviously succeeding as a colonial one.
