Bibi's consideration is Israel lacks international legitimacy. He is right. Israel received international sympathy and legitimacy after the Holocaust. When the Jews are killed and in masses, the world will give us legitimacy. When Israel fights back and prevents terrorist murders, this will never be legitimate. However , that is what Israel was established. To protect Jews and not be dependant on international sympathies. US and UK refused to bomg Aushwitz and save at least 1 million Jews. Ships with Jewish fugitives were either bombed or turned back from Israel to be murdered by the Nazis. So, are we still seeking their "legitimizations". If so, let's close the state and go back to Poland, and US. Bibi and Barak must go. We need real leaders and not cowards.
