On "Settlers"

Paula Stern replying to a BBC reporter:

Am I a settler? I was asked near the milk section of Rami Levy. I am, I answered – all Israelis are settlers, all Americans are settlers too. All Brits, all of us – it is what humans do – we settle in a place and make it home. Not the answer that they wanted, but the one that is in my heart.

WRONG. She is really damaging our cause. Ethnic-Hebrew people are not settlers anywhere in Eretz Yisrael. It is our indigenous place, to which some of us exiled ones are returning. And this is exactly why should identify ourselves as an language-ethnicity.
