The Lost Tribe of Simeon hosts The Francophonie. This international organization involves places with French speakers that are usually within larger countries. This matches the scattered nature of Simeon.
This group is a direct map to the promise given to Jacob over Simeon and Levi. That promise indicates that Simeon would be scattered across the other lost tribes of Jacob.
7Cursed be their anger, so fierce, and their fury, so cruel! I will scatter them in Jacob and disperse them in Israel. (Genesis 49:7 NIV)
7Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel. (Genesis 49:7 KJV)
7Cursed be their rage for it is strong and their anger for it is fierce. I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel. (Genesis 49:7 BRB)
This international organization represents countries and region where French is the customary language or where a significant portion of the population are French speakers or there is a notable affiliation with French culture.
