Chances are, singling-out Judaism is a sop, intended to deflect the Israel Lobby's criticism of Benedict's [relatively even-handed] approach to the Israel question.

I agree with you that this is not very nice towards other religions. And I think that anyone who feels insulted or dominated by this attitude should object loudly and strongly. But this pope for decades has been the head of the Holy Inquisition's successor, the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. There he had proclaimed that e.g. the Protestant Curches are no churches at all, just some kind of herectic gatherings and thus has brought the oecumenic dialog between the churches nearly to an end (at least in germany). What should one expect of the Holy Inquisistion's Chief after he became pope? We can just be glad that he can't have anyone burnt anymore for the rescue of their souls.
