Deuteronomy 32:8 When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind, he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel. 9 For the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.

Other nations in the Promised land
Exodus 23:31 "...I will hand hand over to you the people who live in the land and you will drive them out before you. 32 Do not make a covenant with them or with their gods."
Deuteronomy 17:1 When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations--the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and bigger than you-- 2 and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
Deuteronomy 33: 28 So Israel will live in safety ALONE (without Islamic fanatics); Jacob's spring is secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew. Deuteronomy 33: 29 Blessed are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will trample down their high places (Islamic minarettes). NIV
Nations disappear Ps 20:6  "God save the king" (anointed) -I know he does! He hears me from highest heaven and sends great victories. 7 Some nations boast of armies and of weaponry, but our boast is in the Lord our God. 8 Those nations will collapse and perish; we will arise to stand firm and sure! TLB
Ps 47:3 He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet. 4 He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. NIV

Psalms 79:1 O God, pagan  (heathen - TLB) nations have conquered your land, your special possession. They have defiled your holy Temple and made Jerusalem a heap of ruins. 2 They have left the bodies of your servants as food for the birds of heaven. The flesh of your godly ones has become food for the wild animals. 3 Blood has flowed like water all around Jerusalem; no one is left to bury the dead. 4 We are mocked by our neighbors, an object of scorn and derision to those around us. ...7 For they have devoured your people Israel NLT
Arab mentioned 4x in NIV
Neh 2:17 Then I said to them, "You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace." 18 I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me and what the king had said to me. They replied, "Let us start rebuilding." So they began this good work.
19 But when Sanballat the Horonite, Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the Arab heard about it, they mocked and ridiculed us. "What is this you are doing?" they asked. "Are you rebelling against the king?"
20 I answered them by saying,
"The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding, but as for you, you have no share in Jerusalem or any claim or historic right to it."
Neh 6:1 When word came to Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab and the rest of our enemies that I had rebuilt the wall and not a gap was left in it-though up to that time I had not set the doors in the gates- 2 Sanballat and Geshem sent me this message: "Come, let us meet together in one of the villages on the plain of Ono."
But they were scheming to harm me; 3 so I sent messengers to them with this reply: "I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?" NIV
Isa 13:19 Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the glory of the Babylonians' pride, will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah. 20 She will never be inhabited or lived in through all generations; no Arab will pitch his tent there, no shepherd will rest his flocks there. NIV

Jews with the name Ishmael (Mostly scoundrels)
2 Kings 25:21 So Judah was exiled from its land. 22 Then King Nebuchadnezzar appointed Gedaliah (the son of Ahikam and grandson of Shaphan) as governor over the people left in Judah. 23 When the Israeli guerrilla forces learned that the king of Babylon had appointed Gedaliah as governor, some of these underground leaders and their men joined him at Mizpah. These included Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah; Johanan, the son of Kareah; Seraiah, the son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite; and Jaazaniah, son of Maachathite, and their men. 24 Gedaliah vowed that if they would give themselves up and submit to the Babylonians, they would be allowed to live in the land and would not be exiled. 25 But seven months later, Ishmael, who was a member of the royal line, went to Mizpah with ten men and killed Gedaliah and his court-both the Jews and the Babylonians. 26 Then all the men of Judah and the guerrilla leaders fled in panic to Egypt, for they were afraid of what the Babylonians would do to them. TLB
1 Chron 27:29 Shitrai from Sharon was in charge of the cattle on the Plains of Sharon, and Shaphat (son of Adlai) had charge of those in the valleys. 30 Obil, from the territory of Ishmael, had charge of the camels, and Jehdeiah from Meronoth had charge of the donkeys. 31 The sheep were under the care of Jaziz the Hagrite. These men were King David's overseers. TLB
2 Chron 19:11 Then he appointed Amariah the High Priest to be the court of final appeal in cases involving violation of sacred affairs; and Zebadiah (son of Ishmael), a ruler in Judah, as the court of final appeal in all civil cases; with the Levites as their assistants. "Be fearless in your stand for truth and honesty. And may God use you to defend the innocent," was his final word to them. TLB

2 Chron 23:1 In the seventh year of the reign of Queen Athaliah, Jehoiada the priest got up his courage and took some of the army officers into his confidence: Azariah (son of Jeroham), Ishmael (son of Jehohanan), Azariah (son of Obed), Maaseiah (son of Adaiah), and Elishaphat (son of Zichri). 2 These men traveled out across the nation secretly to tell the Levites and clan leaders about his plans and to summon them to Jerusalem. On arrival they swore allegiance to the young king, who was still in hiding at the Temple. "At last the time has come for the king's son to reign!" Jehoiada exclaimed. "The Lord's promise-that a descendant of King David shall be our king-will be true again. TLB

Ezra 10:16 Following is the list of priests who had married heathen wives (they vowed to divorce their wives and acknowledged their guilt by offering rams as sacrifices): Maaseiah, Eliezer, Jarib, Gedaliah.
20 The sons of Immer: Hanani, Zebadiah.
21 The sons of Harim: Maaseiah, Elijah, Shemaiah, Jehiel, Uzziah.
22 The sons of Pashhur: Elioenai, Maaseiah, Ishmael, Nethanel, Jozabad, Elasah. TLB
Jer 40:8 they came to see Gedaliah at Mizpah, where his headquarters were. These are the names of the leaders who came: Ishmael (son of Nethaniah), Johanan and Jonathan (sons of Kareah), Seraiah (son of Tanhumeth), the sons of Ephai (the Netophathite), Jezaniah (son of a Maacathite), and their men. 9 And Gedaliah assured them that it would be safe to surrender to the Babylonians.
...13  But soon afterwards Johanan (son of Kareah) and the other guerrilla leaders came to Mizpah to warn Gedaliah that Baalis, king of the Ammonites, had sent Ishmael (son of Nethaniah) to assassinate him. But Gedaliah wouldn't believe them. 15 Then Johanan had a private conference with Gedaliah. Johanan volunteered to kill Ishmael secretly.
"Why should we let him come and murder you?" Johanan asked. "What will happen then to the Jews who have returned? Why should this remnant be scattered and lost?"
16 But Gedaliah said, "I forbid you to do any such thing, for you are lying about Ishmael."
...41:1 But in October, Ishmael (son of Nethaniah, son of Elishama), who was a member of the royal family and one of the king's top officials, arrived in Mizpah, accompanied by ten men. Gedaliah invited them to dinner. 2 While they were eating, Ishmael and the ten men in league with him suddenly jumped up, pulled out their swords, and killed Gedaliah. 3 Then they went out and slaughtered all the Jewish officials and Babylonian soldiers who were in Mizpah with Gedaliah.
4 The next day, before the outside world knew what had happened, 5 eighty men approached Mizpah from Shechem, Shiloh, and Samaria, to worship at the Temple of the Lord. They had shaved off their beards, torn their clothes, and cut themselves, and were bringing offerings and incense. 6 Ishmael went out from the city to meet them, crying as he went. When he faced them he said, "Oh, come and see what has happened to Gedaliah!"
7 Then, when they were all inside the city, Ishmael and his men killed all but ten of them and threw their bodies into a cistern. 8 The ten had talked Ishmael into letting them go by promising to bring him their treasures of wheat, barley, oil, and honey they had hidden away. 9 The cistern where Ishmael dumped the bodies of the men he murdered was the large one constructed by King Asa when he fortified Mizpah to protect himself against Baasha, king of Israel.
10 Ishmael made captives of the king's daughters and of the people who had been left under Gedaliah's care in Mizpah by Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard. Soon after, he took them with him when he headed toward the country of the Ammonites. 11 But when Johanan (son of Kareah) and the rest of the guerrilla leaders heard what Ishmael had done, 12 they took all their men and set out to stop him. They caught up with him at the pool near Gibeon. 13 The people with Ishmael shouted for joy when they saw Johanan and his men and ran to meet them. ...15 Meanwhile Ishmael escaped with eight of his men into the land of the Ammonites. 16 Then Johanan and his men went to the village of Geruth Chimham, near Bethlehem, taking with them all those they had rescued-soldiers, women, children, and eunuchs, to prepare to leave for Egypt. 18 For they were afraid of what the Babylonians would do when the news reached them that Ishmael had killed Gedaliah the governor, for he had been chosen and appointed by the Babylonian emperor.

Doeg, Murderous Arab Scoundrel
1 Sam 21:7 (Incidentally, Doeg the Edomite, Saul's chief herdsman, was there at that time for ceremonial purification. )
1 Sam 22:9 [Ref. God Almighty_Sovereign_enemies_nations_judge] Then Doeg the Edomite, who was standing there with Saul's men, spoke up. "When I was at Nob," he said, "I saw David talking to Ahimelech the priest. Ahimelech consulted the Lord to find out what David should do, and then gave him food and the sword of Goliath the Philistine." ...17 [Saul] ordered his bodyguards, "Kill these priests, for they are allies and conspirators with David; they knew he was running away from me, but they didn't tell me!"
But the soldiers refused to harm the clergy. 18 Then the king said to Doeg, "You do it."
So Doeg turned on them and killed them, eighty-five priests in all, all wearing their priestly robes. 19 Then he went to Nob, the city of the priests, and killed the priests' families-men, women, children, and babies, and also all the oxen, donkeys, and sheep. 20 Only Abiathar, one of the sons of Ahimelech, escaped and fled to David.

Wealth of the nations
Psalms 68:29 The kings of the earth are bringing tribute (taxes) to your Temple in Jerusalem. 30 Rebuke these enemy nations--these wild animals lurking in the reeds, this herd of bulls among the weaker calves.

Home Team
It is as if Jehovah invented a game, called REDEMPTION, developed rules for this game, and players, the Jews, to test the rules on before the game was introduced to the nations. Israel was to be the hometeam, with their own home stadium, the Promised Land, that is to be theirs permanently since Jehovah's Messiah will rule from there. He is central in the plan of redemption and took up the identity of the home team, the Jews for his earthly identity. For that reason, his twelve disciples also came from that team and their names will be written on the twelve foundation stones of the New Jerusalem's wall, while the names of twelve tribes will be written on the twelve gates of the city. Revelation 21:13-14.

Rabbis lack of discernment
Same god in Islam
Demo at the PLO Mission to at the UN, October 05, 2003 : Rabbi Avi Weiss: "And it's not just terror, but radical Islam. As a rabbi, I'm waiting for one Islamic cleric to rise in his mosque and declare, 'this terror is immoral'. My message to my Islamic clerical brethren is, if you are silent, you are complicit, you are an accomplice. We tell the people of Israel, we are with you. And we turn to God and say, 'We want to feel Your presence. We pray that You are listening."
Rabbi Allen Schwartz of Congregation Ohab Zedek told the crowd: "Psalm 120 states, 'I am all for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.'
How many times has Israel asked its neighbors to come to the table to talk? How many victims of terror, grandparents, parents and children must Israel bury? Yet the world speaks in moral relativism. We meet on the eve of Yom Kippur. One translation of 'kippur' is a covering. We must cover - we must meet - this kind of horrific news with even more of our own good deeds, by not giving up hope for a better day."
