    I love this world leader. Bibi Netanyahus Christmas greeting warms the collective heart of Christians and Jews who cherish the bond of heritage. Im reminded of the biblical teaching, A three strand cord is not easily broken. Israel America God. Our cord will strengthen in coming days. The Prime Ministers gracious gesture is another branch of allegiance, a sure sign of respect for the Judeo-Christian heritage upon which our great nation was built. For so many of us, that respect is mutual. This is why we commit to Psalm 122:6, Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, the rightful...

    Every Obama event somehow has to offend Christians and Jews. Could Obama pull it off for Chanukah? Yes, he could. I already wrote about Susan Talve's bizarre pre-Menorah lighting rant at the White House Chanukah party. Then, not satisfied with having made a disgrace of the Chanukah ceremony, Susan Talve declared, "I stand here to light these lights to say no the darkness of Islamophobia and Homophobia and Transphobia." Talve babbled about insuring "justice for Palestinians" and began gleefully chanting, "Ins'Allah, Ins'Allah". Or "Allah Willing".

    American Thinker ^ | 12/11/15 | Thomas Lifson
    Leave to Barack Obama to turn what should be a celebration of the Jewish people’s survival in the face of adversity into a politicized rant celebrating the cause of the Palestinians, who want to “drive them into the sea,” as has been promised since the birth of the modern State of Israel. Daniel Greenfield reports on what should have been the highlight of this year’s White House ceremony at Front Page Magazine: …the White House chose Susan Talve to light the Menorah. Talve is a member of the anti-Israel group T'ruah which is currently promoting assorted "soft BDS" programs. She's...
  • Why Hanukkah is the perfect festival for religious freedom

    Washington Post ^ | 12/6/15 | Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
    Hanukkah is the festival when Jews celebrate their victory in the fight for religious freedom more than 2,000 years ago. Tragically, that fight is no less important today, and not only for Jews, but for people of all faiths. The Jewish story is simple enough. In about 165 B.C., Antiochus IV, ruler of the Syrian branch of the Alexandrian empire, began to impose Greek culture on the Jews of the land of Israel. Funds were diverted from the Temple to public games and drama competitions. A statue of Zeus was erected in Jerusalem. Jewish religious rituals such as circumcision and...

    Monday, December 22, 2014 The Light of Chanukah Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog A candle is a brief flare of light. A wick dipped in oil burns and then goes out again. The light of Chanukah appears to follow the same narrative. Briefly there is light and warmth and then darkness again. Out of the exile of Babylon, the handful that returned to resettle and rebuild the land faced the might of new empires. The Jews who returned from the exile of one evil empire some twenty-six hundred years ago were forced to decide whether they...

    Tuesday, December 16, 2014 A Dangerous Holiday Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Holidays are a calendar. They mark points in emotional and physical time. They remind of us who we are. Many of those celebrating Chanukah celebrate a holiday that does nothing more than celebrate 'celebration', the rituals and rites of entertainment, a special food, a symbol whose meaning they don't remember and a little family fun. Chanukah is many things but it is not a safe holiday. It is a victory celebration in a guerrilla war. It is a reminder that Obama's war on Jerusalem...

    A brief (8 minute) talk about the connection between Thanksgiving, its acknowledgement of G-d, America's religious freedom/founding, and Chanukah (spreading light.) Note: This is subtitled (the Rebbe, Rabbi Schneerson speaks in Yiddish) but it's worth listening, reading, and watching. He highlights our REAL American values so poignantly and perfectly-- and blesses Reagan to boot... a great end of the Holiday!

    Theres nothing like the holidays for laughing at anti-religious malcontents being driven to madness by the thought of Christians and Jews celebrating their faiths. Crosses, menorahs, happy people with satisfying personal lives these things drive the militant atheists into a sputtering rage. Watching them fume is the gift that keeps on giving. Normal atheists just dont believe in God, and those of us who do, figure thats between them. They respect our religion and we respect their right to have no part of it. Sure, some religious folks talk to people about their faith, but its not clear why...

    Jewish Press ^ | November 25th, 2013 | Rabbi Reuven Kahane
    Years ago, on a perfect Hanukkah day, my brother and I were getting off the Coney Island bumper cars on the way to kosher country, when we heard "Dirty Jews!" Before having a chance to react in anger or fear, two boys were running full speed away from us. Knowing they were not running from a 7-year-old in a plaid shirt or his slow moving 11-year-old brother, I imagined that the hand of God had descended from the cyclone. But, spotting a speeding Judah Maccabee chasing down those thugs, to my amazement and some chagrin, the Maccabee was none other...

    The Washington Times ^ | November 27, 2013 | Jack Engelhard
    Still today there is controversy as to the real meaning of Chanukah. So lets keep it simple by declaring that Chanukah is about a group of Hebrew fighters who were mad as hell and were not going to take it anymore. These were the Maccabees, hammers for justice and freedom in Judea/Israel some 2,000 years ago. The Maccabees took to heart the Torah dictate that the Hebrews were to be a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. So, outnumbered and out-gunned, they used guerilla tactics to rise up against their Hellenistic oppressors who had defiled the land, the people...

    A young Jewish girl was pranked by Santa after she refused to believe that Santa comes to Jewish houses. While celebrating Chanukah the young Jewish girl opened her mothers closet and found Christmas presents with her name on it. 4-year-old Ashley questioned her mother about the gifts. Her mother Amy said that Santa dropped the gifts off early. The family participated in a Christmas celebration at the girls aunts house, but clever Ashley did not believe the reasoning. That is when Ashleys father asked his co workers at Z100 radio show to pretend to be Santa and prank call his...
