We are deal in generalizations, stereotypes and characterizations to some degree. Although frequently dangerous, they often convey more easily what would take pages to describe and, let's face it, at times they can provide an accurate snapshot of their subject (or at least some members of their group) at a given point in time, place and context. So, no offense intended but neverthless please accept my apologies for the need to raise a few questions: --"God's Chosen People". Chosen for what? Poster children for raging self-absorption? For the dangers of "intellect" gone run amock? --In terms of timing, did God's make his choice before or after he imposed the diaspora on his "chosen" people as punishment for their disobedience to God and his commandments? If "before", perhaps the "diaspora" reflects a change of mind on God's part on the subject ? So far, all I have heard from Zionist are convenient self-serving answers, which of course, members of any religion would like to think of themselves. I have yet to hear any answers which would justify the whole world to spin on a dime just because a very small percentage of its population have gone to the extreme in their self-characterization.
