Look, states do not have rights--to exist, or otherwise. The belief is a conceptual fallacy. 4,000 years of beautiful tradition from Moses to Sandy Koufax does not constitute a right. States come into being or do not, grow or do not, prosper or do not . . . but all of them eventually decline, disappear, or simply change beyond recognition. The fact that the liturgical traditions of most Jewish communities call the Jews a nation is totally non-germane to the question of whether or not a modern nation-state with a system of ethnoreligious citizenship can continue its present existence indefinitely in a region where the group to whom full citizen rights are exclusively granted is a distinct minority.
