Israel and the Sunday Law

How will America force Israel (a sabbatarian country) to bring in a Sunday Law to force all the Jews on pain of death to give up the sabbath and go to church on Sunday to worship Jesus who they don’t believe in? Would that result in the fulfilment of the prophecy in Romans 11:26 And so all Israel will be saved?

What's your proof that this will happen?

This is what the SDAS preach about the Sunday Law, here is a quote from their prophet Ellen G White.

As America, the land of religious liberty, shall unite with the papacy in forcing the conscience and compelling men to honor the false sabbath, the people of every country on the globe will be led to follow her example.—Testimonies for the Church 6:18 (1900).
History will be repeated. False religion will be exalted. The first day of the week, a common working day, possessing no sanctity whatever, will be set up as was the image of Babylon. All nations and tongues and peoples will be commanded to worship this spurious sabbath.... The decree enforcing the worship of this day is to go forth to all the world.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:976 (1897).

While we are at it, how will the US and the papacy force the Muslim world to give up corporate worship on Friday and convert to "Sunday worship"?

Does she ever say anything about a “death decree” or something attributed to such legal penalties being associated with such a “Sunday Law”? I’m largely ignorant of the SDA teachings on this matter and what EGW is to have said regarding the subject - only know what I’ve been told she said and that is “it will happen”.

If she did, please provide the source.

As Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon issued a decree that all who would not bow down and worship this image should be killed, so a proclamation will be made that all who will not reverence the Sunday institution will be punished with imprisonment and death.... Let all read carefully the thirteenth chapter of Revelation, for it concerns every human agent, great and small.—Manuscript Releases 14:91 (1896).

The time of trouble is about to come upon the people of God. Then it is that the decree will go forth forbidding those who keep the Sabbath of the Lord to buy or sell, and threatening them with punishment, and even death, if they do not observe the first day of the week as the Sabbath.—In Heavenly Places, 344 (1908). LDE 257.4

The powers of earth, uniting to war against the commandments of God, will decree that “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond” (Revelation 13:16), shall conform to the customs of the church by the observance of the false sabbath. All who refuse compliance will be visited with civil penalties, and it will finally be declared that they are deserving of death.—The Great Controversy, 604 (1911). LDE 257.5

Especially will the wrath of man be aroused against those who hallow the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and at last a universal decree will denounce these as deserving of death.—Prophets and Kings, 512 (c. 1914).

I saw the leading men of the earth consulting together, and Satan and his angels busy around them. I saw a writing, copies of which were scattered in different parts of the land, giving orders that unless the saints should yield their peculiar faith, give up the Sabbath, and observe the first day of the week, the people were at liberty after a certain time, to put them to death.—Early Writings, 282, 283 (1858).
