More Jews now IN Israel than OUTSIDE of Israel!

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu welcomed a planeload of olim on Tuesday at Ben-Gurion Airport, telling them that "for the first time in 2,000 years, there are going to be more Jews in Israel than outside it."
Speaking to a terminal full of olim from the United States and Canada, who came with Nefesh B'Nefesh on the organization's 38th chartered aliya flight since the first one in July 2002, Netanyahu noted that Israel's Jewish population was nearing the six million mark.

Why is this significant? Because in Ezekiel 36:24, God says there is coming a day when "...I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land."
