    No nation recognizes Israels annexation of the Golan. No nation had placed an embassy in Jerusalem. No nation supports Israels settlement enterprise. Israelis have coined a new word: "delegitimize". This word attempts to finesse the fact that Israel has so many illegitimate aspects by forcing an assumption of legitimacy. This doesn't bear scrutiny. How can a nation based on so many illegitimate factors be legitimate as a whole? Israel should annex the west bank or stop building there. Does the land belong to Israel or not? The fact that Israel has not annexed the land shows that there is serious doubt on this even within the Israeli government. What is the point of using unwilling citizens to become soldiers in a propaganda war?
