Israel remains illegitimate because it has refused to negotiate legitimate borders for itself with the indigenous Palestinians. This reality means that once a Palestinian state is recognised then everything beyond the UN mandate is illegal and an act of colonisation. Which of course it is. Israelis have allowed greed and arrogance to over-ride common sense and they and they alone are responsible for what is happening. It did not have to be this way. Israel could have been recognised as a historically recent coloniser just like the US,if it had created one state with equal rights for all or negotiated legitimate borders for itself decades ago. Own goal Israel!
