The Full invading army - Gog and Magog

Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet;”

Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-togar′mah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.” Ezekiel 38:5-6 RSV

The above verse states who else will be in their army.
The table below shows you the number of Jews from the mentioned above lands that went to Israel and joined the descendants of Gog and Magog (i.e. becoming Israeli citizens)

According to the Historical Dictionary of the Arab-Israeli Conflict “All able-bodied Jewish citizens of Israel over the age of 18 are required to serve in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The normal period of service is three years for men and two years for women. Subsequently, many soldiers are obligated to serve in their respective units until they reach the age of 40 to 49.” 249

The above quote shows you that Jews from the other lands would have joined the Israeli (Gog and Magog) Army (IDF) as stated in Ezekiel 38:5-6.

The statistics above are not fully complete as it does not include the full hordes of Gomer, see next section. The above statistics only concentrate on post World War II immigration, i.e. not post World War I - a time when there was immigration, but far less.

They are mostly related

In Israel there are 3 main types of Jewish communities.
The Mizrahi Jews are known as the oriental Jews  (Middle east & Persia etc.) which includes Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Iran, Turkey etc.
The Ashkenazi Jews are from Russia and Europe.
The Sephardic Jews are the Jews from Spain, Portugal and anywhere not of Ashkenazi origin. 250

Interesting enough according to the biblical genealogy, Magog’s nephew was called Ashkenaz.

Ezekiel 38:6 says “Gomer and all his hordes;” , which means all his large groups, which would probably include his decedents.  Notably one of his children is called Ashkenaz, which would explain why Israel has a large amount of Ashkenazi Jews, they are mostly the descendants of Gomer.
