Ishmael's power source - Part 6

Precisely from the exile of Ishmael will there sprout forth salvation as described in "Pirkei De Rabbi Eliezer (chapter 30):

R. Ishmael says: "They (Ishmaelites) will do fifteen things at the end of days

  1.  Measure the Land;
  2.  Make of the cemetery a holding pen for cattle;
  3. They will measure from them and by them on the mountain tops;
  4. Lies will increase
  5. The truth will disappear; 
  6. The Law will be distanced from the Jews;
  7. There will be an increase in crime in the Jewish people;
  8. The paper and quill will wrinkle;
  9. The  rock  of the Kingdom will spoil;
  10. They will rebuild the ruined cities;
  11. They will  plant orchards and fields;
  12. They will  close the gaps in the walls of the Temple;
  13. They will construct a building on the site of the Temple;
  14. Two brothers will be their elders;
  15.  And in those days  there will rise Tzemach (flower) - the son of David (i.e. Moshiach).
