A state does not need to prove anything. De jure legitimacy of a state is acquired when recognized. Period. Fullstop. In fact, it does not even have to be recognized. That is de facto. Also, most of the territory is not under occupation. They are self governing. Israel carries incursions into the areas. Finally, to debunk your post, is Iraq an illigitimate state because it is under occupation by the US?
