"In the Jewish understanding, chosenness leads not to arrogance, but rather to humility.
"To say that this is ethnocentric is absurd for one simple reason: anyone from any ethnic background can convert to Judaism and become chosen. Jewish chosenness is not a gene, it is a state of the soul. Anyone wishing to take it upon themselves is welcome -- as long as they are ready to have their bubble burst."
That said, I am uncertain how this fits in with the comment I made about Abraham. This site compliments my position nicely, so if you were attempting to back me up then I guess I should thank you for that
