#2 All that land was gifted by the creator to the Jews. It says that in the christian bible, but still the vermin claim some rights to it.

They won't get it. The UN has no troops to match the IDF.

Backward Christian soldiers! :)

#3 A state that

- uses Israeli currency because they have none of their own
- a President whose term ended 5 years ago and who never seems to get around to authorizing a new election
- a President whose life would be ended if he entered Gaza - which is supposedly part of the state
- a State that gets about 60% of their national income from donor countries
- a state that names streets and town squares after suicide bombers

Hereditary monarchies and sultanates and such don't elect their leaders, as I recall, and all terms of office are for life.
