That right would exist for Jews, Malians, Brazilians or Canadians; it is not political in nature, it is a Human Right. There is certainly now a double standard, but the opposite of the one in your mind: all other countries are expected to follow international law and treaties they sign or they get sanctioned, invaded and their regime changed for them. Israel has had none of these consequences -yet. The trope that everyone hates Jews and just wants all Jews dead & gone is really old & tired and doesn't work to excuse bad behaviour. Bar mitzvah is over, Israel's a nation, act like an adult or be treated like a child.
