If you were a Jew, you’d probably feel like you had to be God’s chosen people because other human beings have always treated you so horribly.
Enslaved in Africa, your top guy Moses, through war and attrition, secures you a homeland called “Israel”.
You more or less keep Israel right up until around 70 A.D. when the same Romans who cosigned on the necessity of the death of that heretic among your people, would eventually decide to name that same heretic the “Son of God”, place the entire blame for his death on you and wipe you out.

It speaks volumes that a decision was made basically for the Jews that they should have their own homeland. It was almost as if the West understood that another European Hitler could always arise—and probably would—in which case the Jews would need to be protected by, if nothing else, isolation.
And it’s not like the murder of 6 million Jews really seemed to bother anybody but Jews.
I’m not exactly saying that Hitler punked Europe, but if he hadn’t gotten cocky enough to pull a blitz on London, who knows if and when the Allies would have deaded his run towards world domination.
One might almost imagine that so long as Hitler’s agenda was only the killing of the Jews, everybody would have continued to pretend that they didn’t see anything.
But imagine that you had nothing to do with the killing of the Jews and you were just home chilling when suddenly you get the news that your home won’t be your home anymore.
You see, it wasn’t your home 2000 years ago and the original inhabitants all of a sudden need it back.
“God” had given them that land and it always had and always would be theirs.
At the very least, you might stop and wanna ask somebody “Whose God?”
