However, Boyle suggested a way Netanyahu can achieve universal diplomatic status unilaterally, explaining:
"Under basic principles of international law, every state is free to change its own name...." For example, Congo became Zaire, then Congo once again. Israel can do it also by "chang(ing) its name to Jewistan - the State of the Jews, (its) perfect new moniker" after decades of genocidal atrocities against Palestinians and Lebanese civilians.
Israel might as well make it official, "own(ing) up to its racist birthright....for the rest of the world to acknowledge," notwithstanding its 20% Arab population.
Offering a hopeful note, however, Boyle believes Israel by any name will eventually collapse, letting diaspora Palestinians return and occupied ones free to live in peace in sovereign Palestine.
In the meantime, they should sign nothing harming their interests, and let Israel "collapse of its own racist and genocidal weight," adding: "Good riddance!"
