Ezek 38 explained continued
If we compare the modern state called Israel with the descriptive words used in the prophecy, it immediately becomes clear that it cannot be the same people.
The following words certainly do NOT describe the present day state called Israel: It is, however, definitely applicable to the Israelites who returned from captivity.
Safe and Peaceful
After their return from captivity the Jews enjoyed a period of peace.
Eze 38:8... , and they shall all dwell in safety.
Eze 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates...
Eze 39:26 After they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses by which they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. .
The area of Palestine that is known as “Israel” has not seen one minute of peace and safety since 1948 and the prospect of peace and safety is becoming more remote as an aggressive Israeli regime is pressing harder than ever to get a war going in the middle east.
The Israeli regime is not peaceful neither helpless. It is a well-known fact that the state of Israel is in possession of a nuclear arsenal that is rated fifth largest in the world. They have the foremost airforce in the middle east and they have acquired submarines that are able to launch nuclear weapons.
In addition the USA war department is ready to attack, within seconds, any one who should dare attack Israel. The latter seems to be one of the reasons why the Israeli regime, with impunity, drop bombs on neighboring countries like Jordan and Syria.
Israel together with the American CIA and British warmongers have financed, armed and trained the ISIS terrorists fighting against Syria.
The Children of ISRAEL
Bible believers should keep in mind: In Gen.12:7 God says to Abraham that his SEED (i.e. his descendants) will inherit the land (Canaan).
God also said to the Israelites (when on their way to the promised land) that if they keep his commandments they would receive his protection and blessing.
Alas, as we all know the children of Israel disobeyed God and was litterally deserted by God so that terrible calamities overcame them.
When eventually the Messiah, Jesus Christ, arrived the Pharisees (religious leaders) and Sadusees (Political elite), did not recognize him because they expected a warrier Messiah that would liberate them from the Romans and make them the rulers of the entire Asia minor. This is, of course, not what God promised the Israelites, but that they will be the light of the world through Christ.
Even atheists who reject God and his commands, will believe that modern day Jews are descendants of Israel(Jacob). This is in fact an error as the overwhelming majority of European Jews are of Khazar descent - i.e. descendants of Japheth, not of Shem.

It is abundantly clear that the modern day Ashkenazi Jews are not seed of Abraham. They can therefore not use the dubious excuse that God gave the land to their forefathers.
