An act of state occurs when a sovereign declares itself independent. Who said “recognition” was a prerequisite of state-hood? The deciding factor is a willingness to defend a declaration of statehood; which the Kingdom of HaShem (Judea and Shomron/Samaria have done by publishing those documents (Constitution of Judea & Shomron/Samaria and the Charter for the Tzionist Liberation Organization) .
Article 3 of the Montevideo Convention declares that political statehood is independent of recognition by other states, and the state is not prohibited from defending itself.
Smith v. USA, dissenting opinion @ [507 U.S. 197, 212] a nation’s personal sovereignty over its own citizens may support the exercise of civil jurisdiction in transitory actions arising in places not subject to any sovereign. Mostyn v. Fabrigas, 98 Eng.Rep. 1021, 1032 (K.B. 1774). See also Dutton v. Howell, 1 Eng.Rep. 17, 21 (H.L. 1693). This doctrine of personal sovereignty is well recognized in our cases. As Justice Holmes explained in American Banana Co. v. United Fruit Co., 213 U.S. 347 (1909):
“No doubt in regions subject to no sovereign, like the high seas, or to no law that civilized countries would recognize as adequate, such [civilized nations] may treat some relations between their citizens as governed by their own law, and keep to some extent the old notion of personal sovereignty alive.” Id., at 355-356.

The Jewish Kingdom is in political alliance with the State of Israel but entirely independent! The Jewish Monarchy: The Torah says the People of Israel are to be a kingdom of priests and a holy nation! Shmoth (Exodus) 19.6 “and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.” In Devarim (Deuteronomy) 17.15 the Torah says that when the Jews enter the land of Israel, they shall appoint a king over themselves. Based on this, Maimonides writes that when the Jews entered the land of Israel, they were commanded to do three things: appoint a king, destroy the Amalekites and build a Temple. Maimonides writes further that in the Messianic era a Jewish king will arise and restore Jewish sovereignty, build the Temple in Jerusalem and ingather the exiles. In I Samuel 8.8, however, it says that the Jews were condemned for requesting a king. This seems to be inconsistent.
There is a distinction between the appointment of a king as a substitute for the Al-mighty, as in Samuel’s time, and the appointment of a king as a channel to become closer to G-D (as in the case of King David his “Last Ordinance” and Tehillim (Psalms) 51). Deuteronomy 17:14,15, Mishnah Torah, Laws of Kings, Ch. 1. Specifically, Devarim says, “…whom the L-RD thy G-D shall choose.” HaShem, through the Prophet Shmuel (Samuel) chose David as the eternal king over the House of Israel and his house as the ruling dynasty forever!
There is no need for a Prophet to arise and appoint a new King. The people of Eretz Yisrael (Judea and Shomron/Samaria) can appoint a direct descendant of King David.
