It's a cut & paste but hmmm....
since the issue of land with Israel gets
brought up a lot

1) Israel claims her land.

The return of the Jewish people to Israel is the "super-sign" of prophecy. The Bible predicts over and over again that the Jews must be back in their homeland in order for the events of the end times to unfold (see Jeremiah 30:1-3; Ezekiel 34:11-24; Zechariah 10:6-10).

In 2003 a year of failed peace plans, rising Israeli-Palestinian tensions, and continued terrorist activity Israel began construction of a 320-mile barrier. The structure, now 25-percent complete, is made up of a complex network of fences, trenches, walls, and security roads. Palestinians say the barrier is a landgrab by Israel; Israel claims it is a necessary tool in its war against terrorism; prophecy experts view the barrier as a potential sign of things to come.

Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Zechariah are characters of the Old Testament, which is alliance god made with the jews.
also known as the hebrew bible.

those prophecies (since i dont believe in the bible, i dont consider those writings as prophecies, just writings) are one of the origins of Sionism, which was more of a spiritual quest, claiming the return to Sion.

it was mostly symbolic, Sion representing the City of virtue and happiness, as opposed to Babylone, the city of vice.

but around the end of the 19th century, Sionism became political. which means that thousands of Jews used those texts to justify a massive immigration to Palestine. (just for yall to know, in 1882 there were only 24000 jews in palestine)

so in my opinion, there are two ways to see this :

the religious way : the prophecies were right, since jews actually did come back to Palestine and founded Israel

my way : those prophecies were used to justify the conquest of Palestine and the founding of an independent state, Israel

Yes! many anaylists believe that the Israel-Palestine conflict is the key to the other conflicts in Middle East.
