Why is Judaism the only religion in the world that claims God revealed Himself to an entire nation?

It is possible to convince even a group of people that something which did not occur did - if they wish to believe it (cf. Nazi claims of "aryan" ancestry & Pal. claims today); however that will not convince those outside the particular group. I was struck by the statement quoted, that no other group shall SURVIVE national revelation. It seems to support the Hindu claim, wherein all witnesses to the revelation died except one. And further supports the uniqueness & mission of the Jews.

Beautiful

Thank you. Beautiful article. Incontrovertible. It is undeniable that as not one religion ever came along with such a claim of revelation of G-D speaking to people, to millions of people, except Judaism, That it is the true and only religion.

Answer to above question: "Because Jewish religion is a tribal religion and revelation to one specific group of people is a tribal way of thinking (even in the case of the Jewish religion being influenced by most great powers (cultures) of ancient antiquity)." (I say this in all respect to Jewish people, their religion and culture, which I appreciate a lot.)

"tribal" religion? What religion is not?

Although I understand what is meant by 'tribal", your assessment means -- what exactly? What religion does not appeal to a 'tribe' of people?

Regardless of the size of the 'tribe', the point of the video stands majestic.
