Hillary Clinton is not going to be president. Democratic electors need to accept this if they believe that extraordinary measures within the Electoral College are justified.
The world doesn't treat Israel as a normal country though and never did. Many people do not see Israel as a country created by Jewish self-determination but an artifact of white imperialism with the Jews as nothing more than an odd type of white people. This view is particular common among Muslims but many people on the Further Left or in non-Western nations also believe it. Even countries nominally supportive of Israel as a Jewish state see it as somewhat semi-sovereign because it was created by a UN vote rather than an act of Jewish political will in their minds.
