44. point being?

You are not seriously trying to use the general definition of the word settler to imply that it proves something about any specific use of the term, are you? That's entirely circular reasoning... because we refer to them as settlers that means that they must fulfill the definition as such... so if settlers are part of a colonial practice it must mean that Israel is a colonial state.

That's really horrible logic. If that's your best argument, precisely defining a colloquialism and assuming that meaning therefore follows, then you've become quite desperate.
