Disappearing the Palestinians is still at the heart of the Zionist dream. That is what the occupation, settlements, annexing land without annexing (giving full citizenship to) the people, denying building permits, demolishing buildings, wells, whole villages, etc, is all about.
I often wonder whether, if the Zionists ever finally succeed in full ethnic cleansing of the Greater Israel to establish their perfect Jewish state, will they one day in the future look back and cry crocodile tears and write about how terrible it was that the Palestinians forced them to cause such injuries because they wouldn’t just surrender and leave voluntarily and hand the keys to their oppressors. Something along the lines of, “cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children”.
Disappearing the Palestinians is existentially essential to Zionism, which is part of what makes Zionism, an ethnoreligious supremacist nationalist and expansionist ideology, immoral and unethical. Ethnic cleansing and genocide are crimes.
