Was going to make one for the countries that do not recognize Israel, but that's apparently been done at least twice before so I did this one instead.

The Holy See is not the same thing as Vatican City. Rather, the Holy See is an office held by the current pope, which includes control over all of Vatican City. Also, they recognise Palestine.

"As an independent sovereign entity, holding the Vatican City enclave in Rome as sovereign territory, it maintains diplomatic relations with other states."

Seems like a confusing distinction to me.

Less confusing is the fact that the Vatican does in fact recognize Palestine, though that came in 2015, a year after I made this quiz.

How about the ones who have never stopped recognizing Palestine and have never recognized the immigrant state that controls it now?
