One can believe in God and make rational decisions, be reasonable in the end with what's right and what's wrong. Is this small sample of 2,803 Israeli Jews polled indicative of the Israeli mindset? That sample is small first of all - it's the number of say four huge ultra- Orthodox weddings! But the survey indicated 46% as identified secular Israelis (almost half); 32% as identified Traditional Israelis (here we call them also Conservative & Reform Jews); and only 22% as Orthodox. The terminology of the " Chosen People " is more utilized by the non-Jewish nations, because I rarely heard amongst us that we are the Chosen People...it's more of Mishpacha (family) or tribe even. Perhaps amongst the Orthodox it's taken literally as " the Chosen People ".
