So then, who exactly IS Israel?
Is it only the citizens of the State of Israel? Plus maybe another 10 million around the world who call themselves Jews?
Are they the Israel of God, as Paul says in Galatians 6:16?

Why does Romans 9:27 and many other prophesies plainly state that only a remnant of ethnic Israel will be saved, if as you think; God intends to redeem them?
