May The G-d of Our Fathers Bless Dan Greenfield, and Keep him in His Tender Care. He is the Mordecai of our times.

Happy Purim.

I remember that somebody donated some wonderful original paintings to the Kosher Nursing Home where I once worked as the Activities Director. They represented all the Jewish Holidays and their symbols, and were similar in style to the works of Marc Chagall...very mystical and colorful. They were hung with great care throughout the facility, EXCEPT for the Purim painting. When I asked the Director (a notorious liberal), what happened to the Purim Painting, she replied, “We put it away in a closet because it had Haman Hanging on the Gallows in the background.” I begged and pleaded that they hang the picture, because all the patients were Jewish, Very Elderly, and Loved Purim! The patients had NO PROBLEM with Haman being hanged...that’s what happened, and it’s part of the story. Nope. I was overruled. After all, I was just a Irish-Indian Christian. What do I know? LOL. (BTW, due to my rebellious nature, I have been SELF employed for the last 30 YEARS! LOL!

In this essay, it is plainly obvious that Daniel Greenfield takes the commandment to remember (Shabbat Zachor) very deeply to heart. This goes a long way in explaining why everything else he writes is on a level far above the wisdom and ability of "regular" commentators. He's been tapping into a different source. No wonder he is so prolific and brilliant. The well he's using never runs dry.
