WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is marking Hanukkah as a story of "faith over doubt."

Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden convened a Hanukkah celebration at the White House Thursday in an early celebration of the Jewish Festival of Lights.

Obama said the Hanukkah story was about "right over might, faith over doubt." In the Hanukkah story, a small band of Jews rededicating a Jerusalem temple found that a one-day supply of oil kindled a flame instead for eight.

The president noted "our unshakeable support and commitment to the security of the nation of Israel."

Hanukkah begins at sunset on Dec. 20. Obama joked that everyone needs to be "careful that your kids don't start thinking Hanukkah lasts 20 nights instead of eight."

Has there ever been a more antisemitic US President?

this story is surpassed only by his first seder at the White House, pulled together quickly after a major insult by his administration to Jews and Israel, in order to curry favor with the Jewish community — at which he was the seder macher - expert on Jewish history and tradition that he is. ugh!
