My view is that re-created Israel has never made much sense, no matter which perspective you use - ethnicity, religion, history, etc. Jews live better, much better, in many other places.
I think it fair to say that 1948 was a mistake, born out of horrendous realities and fears and painful emotions of course, but still a mistake, one today serving no good purpose and indeed creating almost endless conflict as it tries desperately to make sense of itself and to push others to accept terms and definitions which are often meaningless.
For example, to have others accept it as "the Jewish state." Sounds simple for a second, but any reflection and you understand the many ways that those words make no sense, starting with the simple fact that, overwhelmingly, most Jews do not live there and likely never will.
Still, I think we can all accept Israel, even if we regard its re-creation as having been a mistake, if only it can live as a nation which follows the rule of law. It simply does not do so, and in dozens of different ways. That is an unacceptable reality, as is the constant violent bullying it engages in to ignore laws and rules and practices everyone else on the planet is expected to honor.
I have thought about this matter a good deal over the years and written some analysis readers may find interesting:
