Re: Locally invented Gods
The obvious reason for your God favouring the Israelites is that they invented him. Locally invented Gods from other cultures show similar tendencies. They occupy themselves with the affairs of the tribe that invented them, and often with that tribe's neighbours, but never with people from the other side of the world that the tribe inventing the God/Gods have never heard of.

Cue the Flood....
