How Jews Came to be the Chosen People

There came a time after the Creation of Man that God wanted to choose a people to be a light unto all peoples and to be unto Him a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation to proclaim His Message to the world. So God went among the various nations and peoples of the land to Choose those with whom to make a covenant and who would follow His Commandments.

He went first to the Arabs and said, "Be my Chosen People and follow my Commandments."
The Arabs asked, "What is a Commandment."
God said, "Well, for example, 'Thou shalt not kill.'"
The Arabs; said, "What are you insane? Killing innocent women and children is an enjoyable pastime of ours. Forget it!"


So then God went to the Persians and said, "Be my Chosen People and follow my Commandments."
The Persians asked, "What is a Commandment."
God said, "Well, for example, 'Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife.'"
The Persians said, "Oh no. We like adultery and orgies. Forget it."

So then God went to the Assyrians and said, "Be my Chosen People and follow my Commandments."
The Assyrians asked, "What is a Commandment."
God said, "Well, for example, 'Thou shalt not steal.'"
The Assyrians said, "Forget it, we love to loot and pillage."

So then God went to the Jews and said, "Be my Chosen People and follow my Commandments."
The Jews asked, "How much does a Commandment cost?"
God said, "why, nothing."
The Jews said, "Great, we'll take ten."



But seriously now, it is important to understand that being Chosen does not confer upon Jews any special reward, rather it creates obligations exclusive to Jews. Rabbinic writings state clearly that although non-Jews were not Chosen they were still made in the image of God who loves them all equally. This is why it is not necessary for Jews to proselytize or convert everyone to Judaism. Simply proclaiming God's message to the world is all that is necessary to comply with the covenant (aside from the 613 commandments peculiar to Jews). One does not have to be Jewish to worship God.

bloody arab childAllah, on the other hand, requires complete surrender (Islam) to the one True Faith. Islam does not mean peace, nor does it mean tolerance. It means surrender and nothing else. Prayer is not a conversation with God as it is under Judaism or Christianity, but a complete submission to 5 daily doses of mindless rote. There is no personal God to have a conversation with. You will never hear a Muslim child saying, "Allah bless my pet frog." What you will hear 4 and 5 year old Muslim children asking of Allah is to destroy and kill Jewish apes and pigs. And this is the fake barbaric cult we allow in this country under the guise of Religion.

Would we allow savage Aztecs to practice virgin sacrifice on bar tables in lower Manhattan on the ground that they are an accepted religion? Obviously not. If we were not buying oil from these sand fleas I doubt that anyone would consider Islam more than a barbaric political system worthy only of total extermination. I am not talking about genocide here. I have no problem with Arabs or Persians or Indonesians. But just as it was no sin to exterminate Nazis whether they were Germans or Austrians or Arabs, there is nothing shameful in seeking to destroy a malignant political tumor such as Islam that left alone will consume and destroy the entire world.
