anti-Zionism as a Left narrative?

Anon chose to respond to my essay, "Why the Jews?", which is cited in the References section.

According to Anon, what makes a country a country is not the people or the culture or history, but the legal rules set up by international imperialism. "Palestine had stopped being a country...'Mandatory Palestine'...was under British protectorate." By this method, Poland was not a country when it was ruled by Czarist Russia, Prussia, and Austria. India was not a country while the British ruled it. Tibet is not a country today nor is Puerto Rico.

For mostly-European colonists (however they had previously been persecuted by a country in Europe) to take over land in which indigenous people lived for centuries (the Arab Palestinians)--this is an example of imperialism The problem is not the politics of the Zionist right, which now dominates the Israeli state, but of Zionism itself, even as once led by social democrats.
