…say God gave the state of Israel to the Jewish people.
This is where it pays to have a Magisterium. The state of Israel is a secular nation state like America, France, or Australia. It has the same rights and privileges as any secular nation state. But apart from Evangelical superstition and a lousy misreading of Scripture, there is no reason to regard Israel as somehow founded by God, much less immaculately conceived and preserved from all sin original and actual. Treat it like any other other and stop falling for quack Evangelical eschatology. That stuff is dangerous.
