Right, it is as legal as just about any nation. What makes Palestine or Saudi Arabia or Lebanon legal? Hewed out of the old Ottoman Empire by a deal between France and Britain? How was that legal?

Ever since Og the caveman the only real argument for legality is "My troops are there and can defend it". This was proven in those legal cases of "Arabs vs Israel (1948), also Arabs vs Israel (1967) and so forth.
