G_d could have chosen any people, He has punished and blessed the Jews over time, arrogance of His chosen people will not bring His blessing, beware. If Israel choose arrogance and unrighteouness as it's way forward, be sure that The Almighty will not have His land and people not go unanswered. His Holy and Glorious Name will NOT be put to shame.
