One of God's purposes for the State of Israel

I do not wish to defend all the actions of Israel and its leaders.  Human wickedness has no political or religious boundaries.  However, had the Muslim world accepted the UN 1947 Partition Plan, Israel would have had a state, and the Palestinians would have had a state. But in order for the Muslim world to accept that plan, they would have had to acknowledge that Islam was not the true religion that needs to be accepted by the entire world. And they refuse to acknowledge that. As a consequence, Israel's borders have expanded.

So what to most of the world appears to be merely a human story is in the spiritual world a much bigger story. God is using the nation of Israel as a witness against Islam. God chose Isaac and not Ishmael. God chose Jacob and not Esau. God gave the promised land to Israel. And the gifts of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29. Paul said this in regard to the Israel that had not accepted Jesus, not the Church.

Further, it is a witness against Islam that Muhammed is not God's prophet. The oracles of God were entrusted to the Jews, not to anyone else. For salvation is from the Jews.
