Nobody questions the legitimacy of the state of Israel. What is questioned is the legitimacy of that state's policies as they pertain to the Palestinian Israelis and those Palestinians on Palestinian land occupied by Israel. Post Nuremberg, no sovereign state can govern anyway it wants and where its footprint is. That's what it means today to be "a nation among nations." Israel has duties, not just rights. As an American taxpayer, I resent my own government's policy of rubber-stamping Israel right or wrong and funding it so enormously; BTW, I also resented my government's unilateral attack on Iraq, and I will protest any such attack on Iran. It is the duty of an informed American to protest bad US policy and that includes the immoral, unethical and illegal policy of the state the US gives most of its foreign aid to, which is Israel.
