Plus ça change

Here's an article in the Socialist Worker. It's well worth reading the whole thing but this chunk really stands out:
Moshe Machover and Akiva Orr, two Israeli anti-Zionists, wrote The Class Character of Israel in 1972. In this pioneering Marxist analysis they wrote, "The permanent conflict between the settlers’ society and the indigenous, displaced Palestinian Arabs has never stopped and it has shaped the very structure of Israeli sociology, politics and economics."
Plus ça change? What change?
