Sarah Palin: "Happy Hanukkah"
SARAH PALIN FACEBOOK ^ | Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 11:34pm | SARAH PALIN

Posted on 12/02/2010 9:58:22 PM PST by onyx

As Jewish families all over the country and the world come together to celebrate the festival of lights – the miracle of one day’s worth of oil lasting for eight – we are reminded that this holiday is also about the miracle of taking a stand against impossible odds, surviving existential threats, and staying true to one’s values and beliefs through it all.

More than two thousand years after the Maccabees rebelled against their oppressors and reconsecrated their Holy Temple, the Jewish people continue to face threats to their existence, and they continue to persevere and overcome great odds. Today we should all recommit ourselves to ensuring that the miracle of a Jewish state endures forever. The dreidel is one of the most familiar symbols of Hanukkah, with Hebrew letters on it representing the phrase Nes Gadol Haya Sham – “a great miracle happened there.” Indeed a great miracle is still happening there. Todd and I wish the Jewish community a very Happy Hanukkah.

- Sarah Palin

SMILING!
Hey there night owl!
I was on my way to signing out but checked Sarah Palin’s FaceBook page and I’m happy I did.
GOOD to see you, “stranger.”

It does not matter if this came from Sarah’s kitchen laptop or from her future oval office (which I believe will happen through God’s grace), I know that Sarah will never forget our Jewish brothers and sisters. She has their best interests at heart. I can hardly wait until she can, as POTUS, return this nation to it’s close relationship with Israel.

Sweet sentiment and I agree. As POTUS, she will be Israel’s best and steadfast friend.

למען ציון לא אחשה
ולמען ירושלם לא
אשקוט עד־יצא כנגה
צדקה וישועתה
כלפיד יבער׃

וראו גוים צדקך
וכל־מלכים כבודך
וקרא לך שם חדש
אשר פי יהוה
יקבנו׃

והיית עטרת תפארת
ביד־יהוה וצנוף
מלוכה בכף־אלהיך׃

לא־יאמר לך עוד
עזובה ולארצך
לא־יאמר עוד שממה
כי לך יקרא חפצי־
בה ולארצך בעולה
כי־חפץ יהוה בך
וארצך תבעל׃

כי־יבעל בחור
בתולה יבעלוך בניך
ומשוש חתן על־כלה
ישיש עליך אלהיך׃

על־חומתיך ירושלם
הפקדתי שמרים

ואל־תתנו דמי לו
עד־יכונן ועד־ישים
את־ירושלם תהלה

1 For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.

2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.

3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.

5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.

6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,

7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
— Isaiah 62:1-7 KJV

Sarah has an affinity - even an affection, for Israel and the Jewish people. She gets it.

"taking a stand against impossible odds, surviving existential threats, and staying true to one’s values and beliefs through it all. "

She is probably the only world leader, other than perhaps Canada’s Harper, who would say something like this.

I’ve hated neocons since the term became popular.

But why does this woman keep convincing me that I should be a neocon? I hate her. I have conceded so many viewpoints already to this woman and she keeps on scoring .........................

Yeah yeah yeah yeah .... OKEY OKEY

Happy Hannukah! to all our American Jewish brothers and to the people of Israel, our friends from abroad.

I appreciate her wishes and am also impressed that she gets the Orthodox nature of Chanukkah.

Reading her post, she clearly has knowledge of the historical events underlying the holiday — something most Reform Jews do not (being that the Reform Jews of 2300 years ago were collaborators with Greems).

I closely follow Jewish Americans for Sarah, --- I listen to Jewish Talk Radio on Sunday --- and they posted photos two days ago, of Gov. Palin at 2009 Chanukah fest in Anchorage.

O Hanukkah,
O Hanukkah,
Come light the menorah!
Let’s have a party
We’ll all dance the Horah!
Gather round the table,
We’ll give you a treat...
Shiny tops to play with
And pancakes to eat!
And while we are playing
The candles are burning low....
One for each night
They shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago.
