Israel shouldn’t even be a state.
You’re being facetious . . . . .right?
No. Why should Israel exist as a state? It never was until the West intervened.
Why don’t we just go into the middle east and start drawing boarders in the sand, too…? oh, wait. We already did that. Hello, Iraq.
I will grant you that Britain really screwed up the world with their arbitrary lines in the sand - but you cannot deny that there was a historical Israel with roughly the borders it possesses today . . . they were simply given that historical territory by the withdrawing Brits that was traditionally Israel prior to the onslaught of the Muslim hordes as a means to deal with the displaced Jewish populations and as recompense for the horrors they have suffered throughout history at the hands of the nations they lived in. Something the UN supported at the time
The UN charter granting Israel nationhood was designed to meet the needs of both Jew and Arab by creating two states - one Palestinian and one Jewish - however, the apportionment of the territory for a Palestinian state was blocked by Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.
Historically and legally - Israel has the right to exist, and by fait accompli of the wars launched against them managed to add territory by defeating those who tried to destroy it (West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights)
Are you really going to spout UN nonsense? Come on. I thought you were a conservative.
I think you do not really understand what a right is. States do not have rights. Individuals do. No one has the right to take power collectively in the name of other individuals.
Historically, if Israel were capable of being a real state it would have existed without intervention by other governments and would have been recognized as such.

If that is the case the United States shouldn’t exist either. Because it was funding from European Jews and French troops that made the revolution a success.
