Will Israelis be Restored to the Land of Israel?
If God is for them, why are so many nations against them?
The following are simply what the Scriptures say about ancient Israel being restored; however, it must also be pointed out that for them to be restored, they would have to repent: and seek the Lord their God: something that modern day Israelis and Jewish people in general, have not done. It should also be pointed out that the New Testament uses the word "us" (Christians) rather than "them" (Jews), Rom. 8:31-39. For more details on who God's people are, see Who is a True Jew.

Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a man with a measuring line in his hand. So I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see how wide it is and how long it is." And behold, the angel who was speaking with me was going out, and another angel was coming out to meet him, and said to that young man, saying, "Jerusalem will be inhabited without walls, because of the multitude of men and cattle within it. "For I,' declares the LORD, 'will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.'" "Ho there! Flee from the land of the north," declares the LORD, "for I have dispersed you as the four winds of the heavens," declares the LORD. "Ho, Zion! Escape, you who are living with the daughter of Babylon." For thus says the LORD of hosts, "After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye." Zech. 2:1-8
“'Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!' declares the Lord … Then I Myself shall gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and shall bring them back to their pasture ...

Then they shall live on their own soil.” Jer. 23:1,3, 7-8

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘I am exceedingly jealous for Zion, yes, with great wrath I am jealous for her.’ Thus says the Lord, ‘I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.

And it will come about that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you that you may become a blessing. Do not fear; let your hands be strong. Zech. 8:7-8, 12-13
"And I shall strengthen the house of Judah, and save the house of Joseph, and I shall bring them back, because I have had compassion on them; And they will be as though I had not rejected them; for I am the LORD their God, and I will answer them. "And Ephraim will be like a mighty man, and their heart will be glad as if from wine; Indeed, their children will see it and be glad. Their heart will rejoice in the LORD. And I will whistle for them to gather them together, for I have redeemed them; And they will be as numerous as they were before. When I scatter them among the peoples, they will remember Me in far countries, and they with their children will ... come back. And I will bring them back ... until no room can be found for them." Zech. 10:6-10
