According to the Talmud (Avodah Zarah 2b), G-d offered the Torah to all the nations of the earth, and the Jews were the only ones who accepted it.

The story goes on to say that the Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because G-d held a mountain over their heads! , the words generally translated as "at the foot of the mountain" literally mean "underneath the mountain"!

Contrary to popular belief, Judaism does not maintain that Jews are better than other people.

Although we refer to ourselves as G-d's chosen people, we do not believe that G-d chose the Jews because of any inherent superiority.

Alas, many have forgotten these in the passage of time. The Temple was the universal center of spirituality, which the prophet Isaiah referred to as a "house for all nations." Non-Jews were welcome to bring offerings to the Temple as well.

Perhaps the best that we can do is to encourage all peoples to keep these and then it would indeed become a very different world. In fact, the service in the Holy Temple during the week of Sukkot featured a total of 70 bull offerings, corresponding to each of the 70 nations of the world.
