In my view, when someone says: "God's chosen people are thieves", it's the same as saying "Jews are thieves"! Do you really believe that?
If you had said something like: "These settlers and their supporters are thieves", I would agree with you.
If you said something like: "The present leadership in Israel are thieves, openly stealing Palestinian land in the West Bank.." Again I would agree with you!
Do all Jews support Netanyahu and his Likud policies? No.
Personally, I believe the only just solution is a greater Israel that encompasses all of Gaza and the West Bank and that gives every Palestinian equal rights just as Jewish Israelis have. I'm in a minority view on this, and it will probably never happen, but it's the only thing that will work. The next best thing is the two state solution, but that means giving up ALL the land and control of the occupied territories, going back to the 1967 borders.
Let's be careful in these discussions how we characterize other religions, races, ethnicities. I do not believe ALL Muslims are intent on creating a World Caliphate, in fact, I believe those Muslims that believe that are in a minority and are the extremists.
Again, there are Jews that openly condemn the taking of West Bank land, period and are going so far as to boycott institutions and businesses that profit from these actions:

I agree with what you are saying. In the name of religion there have been many crimes done, I agree that not all the people in a religion are extremist.
In my opinion religion in general is a bad thing. I mean as if we need yet more avenues of separation in our world. Peace is hard to come by when you have 4,200 estimated religions in the world and they all think they are right. How can anything good come from that?
