On an internet forum I found this post—
JERUSALEM (EJP)---The Jewish Agency for Israel brought 1,000 new immigrants from 17 countries to Israel last week, including 550 new olim from France, more than 100 from the United Kingdom, 60 from South Africa and 170 from South America.
You can move them around from one country to another but still their numbers continue to shrink until there is none left standing.
According to a 2002 study by the Jewish Agency, "the number of Jews in the world is declining at an average of 50,000 per year." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_population
Still they are being gathered as it was written. This I cannot deny. (Ezek 20:41 KJV) I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered ; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen.
(Ezek 20:43 KJV) And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled ; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed.
(Ezek 20:44 KJV) And ye shall know that I am the LORD , when I have wrought with you for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings , O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
(Ezek 21:2 KJV) Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem , and drop thy word toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,
(Ezek 21:3 KJV) And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I am against thee , and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.
(Ezek 21:24 KJV) Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.
(Ezek 21:25 KJV) And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
(Ezek 21:30 KJV) Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy nativity.
(Ezek 21:31 KJV) And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath , and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy.
(Ezek 21:32 KJV) Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire ; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered : for I the LORD have spoken it.
(Ezek 22:4 KJV) Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near , and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries.
(Ezek 22:5 KJV) Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock thee, which art infamous and much vexed.
I don’t think this is what the Israelis had in mind, do you--?
