To what extent is Jewish Israeli society willing to discard the deeply embedded image of the "chosen people" and cease isolating itself in the name of a fanciful history or dubious biology and excluding the 'other" from its midst

The ancient Egyptians kept meticulous records of every event, and there is a great deal of documentation about the kingdom's political and military life yet there is not a single mention of any "Children of Israel" who lived in Egypt, or rebelled against it, or emigrated from it any time.
