The Algemeiner:”The “French effect” – increasing numbers of Jews leaving a country because of anti-Semitic harassment and hostility from the media and radical politicians – is now emerging in Turkey, where a Turkish-Jewish businessman has warned, in an oped for the Istanbul-based Jewish newspaper Şalom, that a growing number of community members are heading for the exit.
“We face threats, attacks and harassment every day. Hope is fading,” wrote Moise Gabay, a professional in the tourism industry, in an article published on December 10.
Opinion: Nations like France and Turkey are unknowingly fulfilling prophecy.
If Moise Gabay would read the words of the Jewish prophets that God provided, he would know that in these last days God will renew the covenant and all Jews will dwell in the land:
“For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.” Ezekiel 36:24-28
In chapter 37, Ezekiel is told to prophecy to very old dry bones; the whole house of Israel:
“Again He said to me, Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.” Ezekiel 37:4-5
The miracle of the rebirth of the land to the covenant people took place on May 14, 1948 almost 2500 years after Ezekiel’s prophecy.
