What is questioned is not the legitimacy of Israel but rather of its founding ideology, Zionism. More and more people in the US and elswhere are now questioning the legitimacy of Zionism, not the legitimacy of Israel. What is the difference? The difference is that Israel can continue to exist even if it rejects Zionism. And that is what has to be done in order for Peace to exist. Israel cannot, even with the help of the United States oblige people to swallow the totally illegitimate ideology of Zionism.
