  • The poll question, "do you recognize Isreal as legitimate?" and the question asked in the opening post, "is there a right to the Jewish state?" are two very different questions.

    What specifically is being asked?

  • What do you mean by "legitimate"?  The State of Israel essentially exists due to conquest, and support from a large and very powerful ally.  Nations and even empires have been formed in this way countless times throughout history.  Were they "legitimate"?

    They are neither theologically nor politically "legitimate".  The above post is mine as well.

    There is a right for the Jews in that state to convert to the Catholic Faith.

    No argument from me on the theological point.  But what causes Israel to be politically "illegitimate"?  As I said, conquest has always been a legitimate means of creating or expanding a state, historically speaking.  Although Israel was created by the UN, they fought to make it a reality, and then conquered more lands to expand it.  Not pretty, but not "illegitimate" either.

    1. Conquest via what means?

    ("Iusus Bellae", for one, is almost certainly applicable here, but let's see.)

  • S. Augustine also comes to mind, prompted by the word "legitimate"; "An unjust law, is no law at all."

    That unsticky box has got to go the way of the dodo.
    "Lord, have mercy".
