Hi Yair,
If you have space perhaps you could post some of the references in
scripture regarding the future of the nations. Scripture doesn't seem to
indicate that everyone left will all be living in the Israel region --
rather, the remnant, or those who are left of all the nations will be living
all over the earth and all will recognize and worship G-d and consider
Jerusalem their governing capital.
(PS: there are many more passages like these below)....
Psalm 22:27-28 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the
LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the
kingdom [is] the LORD'S: and he [is] the governor among the nations.
Psalm 67:2-7 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among
all nations. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise
thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the
people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah. Let the
people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. [Then] shall the
earth yield her increase; [and] God, [even] our own God, shall bless us. God
shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
Psalm 72 [A Psalm] for Solomon. Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy
righteousness unto the king's son. He shall judge thy people with
righteousness, and thy poor with judgment. The mountains shall bring peace
to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness. He shall judge the
poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break
in pieces the oppressor. They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon
endure, throughout all generations. He shall come down like rain upon the
mown grass: as showers [that] water the earth. In his days shall the
righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth. He
shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends
of the earth. They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and
his enemies shall lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles
shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Yea,
all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
Psalm 82:6 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all
Isaiah 2:2 -4 And it shall come to pass in the last days, [that] the
mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the
mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall
flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to
the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will
teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall
go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall
judge among the nations....

2. Shalom Yair,
I have another possible solution to the question of where will all the
Israelites be placed in the Messianic Age.
Whether the Messianic Age begins with many or few Israelites (i.e. "a
remnant"), it seems evident that the blessings of a huge population for the
Israelites will be fulfilled in the Messianic Age. This would fulfill the
blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant that his birthright descendants would
be as numerous as the sands of the sea or the stars of heaven. Therefore,
the question becomes: Where will they all go to when their numbers become
this great during the Millennium?
I see a probable answer in the historical precedents of what occurred in
the time of Kings David and Solomon when the tribes were last united under
single rulers. The initial years of Solomon's reign are, in my view, a
type of what will occur in the Messianic Age. Solomon was a great king
ruling from a "world capital" in Jerusalem in an era of world peace and
enlightenment. The wealth of the earth flowed to Jerusalem, and the
nations of the earth sent ambassadors and contingents to observe the Feast
of Tabernacles. I see in this historical period a type of the future
Messianic Age.
During Solomon's time, the Israelites were not confined to their
territorial allotments in the Promised Land. The Israelites (the dominant
power in the "Phoenician Empire" of that time) had major colonies in North
Africa, Spain, European coastlands, the British Isles and even the New
World. Based on this precedent, I believe that while the Israelite tribes
will have contingents of people living in their ancient Promised Land
tribal allotments during the Messianic Age, they will also have many
overseas habitations as well.
God foretold in Genesis 28:14 that the Israelites would colonize in all
directions and spread abroad on the face of the earth. This blessing was
focused primarily on the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh in Genesis 49:22
where the tribes of Joseph are likened to a vining plant "by a well"
(nations near water) which send out "branches" (colonies) to locations
located away from the root of the plant. This was especially fulfilled in
the 20th century when "the sun never set on the British Empire" and the USA
was a single great nation (Genesis 48:19)
I believe this aspect of the Abrahamic Covenant will apply to the tribes of
Joseph and the rest of the Israelite tribes in the Messianic Age as well.
This would indicate that while the tribes will be "rooted" in their old
territorial allotments, they will spread abroad and inhabit regions of the
earth far from the Promised Land. Given the precedent of where the
Israelites colonized under King Solomon, we would expect those locations to
include Europe, the British Isles, North America and even Austral-Asian
regions (where evidence has now placed the ancient Phoenicians as well).
Since we find Israelite tribes living in these locations already today, it
is likely that these regions will also be Israelite habitations in the
Messianic Age.

And don't forget, the prophets say "My people will pass under the rod"
which means that only 1/10 of Israel (not only Judah) will be left.
Insurers are talking about nuclear events here in America (because they
don't cover acts of God or acts of war).
All in all, the prophets predicted a horrible war, but after that, the
Messiah will bring in peace, and there will yet be old people and children
playing in the streets, and what I like to think about: every man will sit
under his own vine and fig tree.
