    I know it does not exactly mean what it states, but who ever wrote or invented this, chosen item, has condemed milions of jews to be killed as it is not seen the way it was meant to be used. so i agree with the writer the sooner we get rid of that word CHOSEN the sooner we will have less antisemites in the world.there is a big difference in a nation feeling they are special, or better than some other nation but this is unfortunitly a written religious word ,CHOSEN and means more that just a proud or greath country. i have often remarkt on the chosen bussiness with a Rabbi and he always try to explain what is meant by it ,that is fine for me, but try and convince the rest of the world of that, and you get nowere with the explanation. there are things in the Koran that are dangerous and create hatred and there are things in the Torah that are also dangerous and create hatred. and lets not forget the Bible. i do not beleive the Torah was written By God, it was written By man,even if he claimed it was inspired by God and who can realy proof that, and the one who put in the prayer YOU HAVE CHOSEN US condemmed us to be hated for thousnds of years With this few simple words. joseph theeboom
