In other words, you are intentionally using an extremely inflamatory word that doesn't properly describe the phenomenon you believe is taking place?


No the word captures it very well.


Do you mean that disliking someone because of his skin color is equivalent (in your mind) to disliking someone because he is trying to kill me?


That's not the reason why the land of the Palestinians is expropriated. It's expropriated because they are not Jews and all of the "holy land" supposedly belongs to the Jews.
This idea is similar to how Adolf thought the "Aryans" had a mystical right to the land(the "Lebensraum"="living space") in the east.
