Dancing In The Street As Governor Palin Arrives In Israel
Sheya ^ | March 19, 2011 | Staff Writer

Posted on 03/19/2011 9:52:42 PM PDT by dalight

Upon Governor Palin’s arrival Israelis will be celebrating the festivities of Purim.

Purim is the day Jews celebrate the story of Esther. It’s a very festive day. Kids dress up and food gifts are distributed to family and friends. People are very joyous and its common to see lots of singing and dancing in the streets. It’s customary to drink lots of wine on Purim. It is also a day of giving a lot of money to charity.

Everywhere in the world, including most of Israel, Purim began at sundown on Saturday night and ends after sundown on Sunday night.

In Jerusalem however, Purim takes place one day later and begins at sundown Sunday and ends after sundown Monday.

Governor Palin will join Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for dinner in Jerusalem on Monday evening; The Purim dinner!

If pissant were still here, he’d be screeching about “the bloody zionists,” who support “that woman.”

The rules for Purim include drinking to the point where one cannot tell the difference between Mordechai and Haman. Which according to other sources is something less than sloppy drunk but just about sleepy drunk.

Only religious holiday I can think of that getting drunk is an obligation.

I found it interesting that Jerusalem celebrates Purim one day later because it is was a walled city like Shushan.

Going to a Purim carnival Sunday at the Shul. Always fun to see kids in their costumes. Read from the megillah and say boo to Hamen and yay to Queen Esther.

I’m sitting here thinking that this was no coincidence, that it had to have been planned. The comparisons to the Biblical Esther were not infrequent in certain circles during the course of the 2008 campaign.

She’s perceived to be a friend of Israel at very high levels, and they’re willingly helping her with her election chances in her as-yet unannounced campaign. So are the Indians.

This is very striking, especially in light of the constant belittling din stateside, even on FR.

I have family in Tel Aviv, they are looking forward to Sarah Palin’s arrival. Hopefully after her meeting with Netanyahu she can visit some of the sights, such a beautiful country. I haven’t been to Israel in such a long time, one day would love to go back and visit

Symbolism of the Story of Esther and Sarah throughout her life

1.Shortly after being elected governor in 2006, when she asked one of her former pastors for an example of biblical leadership that she could emulate. Quoting scripture, the pastor told Palin that she, like Esther, had “come to the Kingdom for such a time as this.”

2.When she was going through the trials of the frivolous lawsuits while as Governor, she often paraphrased a line from the Book of Esther. “If I die then I die” when Esther committed herself to to do every she could do as queen to deliver her people, the Jews from the hand of the Evil Haman

3 Sarah stated.that she often reads the book of Esther to her daughter Piper at bedtime, which is one of Pipers favorite bed time story

4. And now Governor Palin’s arrival in Israel as they will be celebrating the festivities of Purim in memory of their deliverance from the hand of Haman’s plot

“For such a time as this”

I sincerely hope and pray that she will stand up and take on this role even though it most certainly will not be at all easy or fun.

If pissant were still here...

Speaking of ol' pissy. I was just noticing today, that there's a marked difference in the overall tone around here. I can't help thinking that his absence has something to do with it.

Seems the room got brighter when he left.

If God determined and will it, she will be the 45th President and there is nothing man nor spiritual force that can stop that, just as long as she stays on the right path which has been preordained for her.

Thank you for posting that.

Not to get too mushy, but I believe with every ounce of my being, that Sarah has indeed come to us in this time of great peril, to lead the nation back to greatness.

I have known this in my heart, from the moment I laid eyes on her.

Thanks for the heads up. I liked the guy some, but I begged him to let it go just the same and when he wouldn't. I just gave up. #52 was indeed vile, and it makes me proud of the management here that they both gave him incredible opportunity to just moderate a bit, and failing that, they dealt with it in a reasonable fashion.

It is a lesson for all of us to not let passion become hatred of our own. Pissant literally let the best and the perfect become the enemy of the good and it took him from us who were his friends and wished he could have found a way back to sanity.

Now he can return home to the DU where he came from.

The guy was either a wack-job with a full-blown psychotic obsession, or he was some kind of political operative. No one else would engage in such a non-stop, 24/7 jihad against such a well-loved conservative.

Let’s hope his ban is permanent

He's come back from the dead before, but I think this time he's gone for good.
