...are THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN CHRIST. God does not choose us on the basis of the blood in our veins but the faith in our hearts. The Bible is so clear on that (e.g. John 8, Gal. 3, Rom. 9 for starters).
The reason the Israeli Government gets away with whatever they want to do even if it's wrong -- that is, with our help and our money and our troops -- is because of this crazy belief they're God's "chosen." That makes as much sense as letting Bernie Madoff out of prison because we locked up one of God's "chosen."
