"We have also seen reports from Israel describing it as the most right-wing coalition in Israel's history and we also know that many of its ministers have said they oppose a two-state solution," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. "This raises legitimate questions about the direction it may be headed in ... and what kind of policies it may adopt."
That use of legitimate, again.
As in "settlements":-
we continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.
and as in a "Palestinian state":-
America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.
So now a cloud of illegitimacy is over Israel's government?
