The only reason the state of Israel exists at all is because the western powers of the mid-19th Century willed it to be so. Jews, being almost Christians, were the perfect candidates for the creation of a buffer zone between the British and French holdings in North Africa.
Using their stories about some God-given birthright, Jews began emigrating from Europe to their "holy land" in the 1840s. This pleased the Western European PTB of the day as they would soon have a buffer against any Russian advances south into North Africa and the Med Coast.
The dream finally became a reality in 1948 with the creation of the state of Israel, and while the Israelis were forced to fight for their very existence a couple of times against the massed armies of their rambunctious Arab neighbours, the existence of Israel in such a strategic area served to limit Soviet expansion and air and naval movements during the Cold War of the 1950s to 1990s.
Israel was very convenient for Western civilisation and will remain so for the foreseeable future. When it ceases to be convenient they'll throw it to the wolves.

] 1841 newspaper article entitled - "Restoration of the Jews To Palestine". Whoa! He called it "Palestine"? In 1841? Must have been an early form of typo.
