Israel is a people. Theologically speaking, it is not (yet) supposed to be a place.
Yechezkel 5:5-9 (10-17) Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
5 Thus saith Adonoi Hashem; This is Yerushalayim: I have set it in the midst of the Goyim and countries that are all around her.
6 And she hath rebelled against My mishpatim with resha’ah more than the Goyim, and My chukkot more than the countries that are all around her: for they have refused My mishpatim and My chukkot, they have not walked in them.
7 Therefore thus saith Adonoi Hashem: Because more than the Goyim that are all around you, ye have been ungovernable, and have not walked in My chukkot, neither have done My mishpatim, neither have done according to the mishpatim of the Goyim that are all around you;
8 Therefore thus saith Adonoi Hashem: Hineni, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute mishpatim in the midst of thee in the sight of the Goyim.
9 And I will do to thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of kol to’avot of thee.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Yechezkel+5&version=OJBhttp://dssenglishbible.com/ezekiel%205.htmhttp://www.deadseascrolls.org.il/explore-the-archive/manuscript/1Q9-1?locale=en_US
