    In another 57 states move, apparently totally clueless about the traditions of Hanukkah, our downgraded President light all 8 candles at once and weeks early

    Who taught Obama about Hanukkah?

    Khalid Monsour?

    His uncle that liberated Auschwitz?

    And he thinks he is a great defender of Israel... thankfully Israel has God to rely on.

    From that ultra-liberal, anti-semetic rag ynet:
    Obama celebrates Hanukkah in White House - Israel News, Ynetnews

    Will Obama be celebrating Easter next week? How about July 4th sometime in January?
    Frankly I think it's a little insulting. Like Hanukah will interfere with his vacation time or something so he'll push it where it fits his schedule. He is not celebrating anything. He is campaigning, as always.

    You do know that Hanukkah is a relatively minor Jewish holiday right? You also know that a recent poll in Israel ranks President Obama pretty favorably..right?

    It's not relatively minor in the American scene. If it were minor, Obama wouldn't be lighing a menorah. What does he do for Sukkos?
    Fortunately Israelis can't vote here.

    It's not minor "on the American" scene..because it's close to Christmas. It's Christians that elevated the holiday.

    More accurately, it was because a lot of Jewish kids got upset that the goyim were getting presents, and they weren't.

    Not sure how this factored into it. Maybe..maybe not. But it's sure a boon to private industry..

    2 holidays..for the price of one. :lol:
