Dozens of people led by an Orthodox priest smashed a menorah in Moldova’s capital, using hammers and iron bars to remove the candelabra during Hanukkah, officials said.
The 1.5 meter(5-foot)-tall ceremonial candelabrum was retrieved, reinstalled and is now under police guard. Religious scandal at Chisinau/Kishinev after almost 100 Orthodox Christians lead by their priest teared up a Jewish Menorah on the day of Hanukkah. The police couldn’t have done anything to stop them.
The Menorah was placed right next to the Stephen III of Moldavia statue (better known as Stephen the Great) Friday on December 11 by “representatives” of the Jewish community from the Moldovan Republic for Hanukkah celebration. The Christians pulled the Menorah and placed a Christian cross instead of it.
“Placing a Jewish symbol next to the statue of Stephen the Great is an offense” said one of the leaders of the protest. “We are Orthodox Christians, we are a nation of Christians and Stephen the Great protected our nation from all kind Jews but Friday, they came here and placed their Menorah right in the middle of our square! This is an outlaw! We can’t believe how our government allowed such a thing in a Christian nation!” said the priest.
The priest then hold the Moldovan flag and shown to the TV cameras: “The Cross here on our flag is our symbol, we will protect our nation with the holy cross! No Jews will oppress us in our own nation!”
They sure sound a lot like the War on Christmas types in America, don’t they. Maybe a damn Jew said Happy Holidays to them. Still don’t think it sounds familiar?
Listen in to Robert Stacy McCain who is not at all anti-semitic! (Yid with Lid says so!!!)
Continuing the assault on Christmas, Seattle’s SEA-TAC Airport removed all of their Christmas decorations as a result of a rabbi’s asinine effort to bring religious relativity to the Christian holy day.
According to Townhall, the rabbi is from an organization called the “Central Organization for Jewish Learning.” If someone can find the homepage of this organization and the name of the rabbi, I’ll update this article later. I have my suspicions.
Look people, Christmas is Christmas. It is a Christian holiday in a predominantly Christian culture, the most important holiday in western culture for 2,000 years. There is no need to dumb down a religious holiday by including Judaic, Islamic, Buddhist, or Wiccan traditions. The “me too” crowd is going to need to get a grip. It’s Christmas, get it? Christmas! I promise it will all be over on December 26th, after which our liberal friends can attack some other aspect of our culture that has served us well.
Thanks to commenter “Anonymous” linking to this article at CNN, the rabbi has been identified as Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky of a group called “Chabad Lubavitch of the Pacific Northwest.” The group’s website is here which includes a telephone number and email address.
The Rabbi is also director of the “Chai Center of Greater Seattle.” His direct contact information at the Chai Center including telephone number and email address is here.
According to this article in the Seattle Times, the Rabbi appears to have forced a giant menorah on to a U.S. Naval frigate, and the article suggests that the rabbi and his group make a habit of this sort of thing. Rabbi Bogomilsky is a radio talk show host and one might speculate that threatening lawsuits is his modus operandi.
MENORAH WIELDING RABBI ATTACKS US NAVY FRIGATE. But Robert Stacy McCain will defend our troops from Jewish Menorah oppression. Won’t someone besides this brave hero of the League of the South stop those damn Jews from planting their accursed infidel Menorahs everywhere.
And wasn’t it helpful of Robert Stacy McCain to include the Rabbi’s contact information. In case someone might want to “contact” him. Hint hint. (But he’s not at all a bigot!!! Yid with Lid swears on a stack of New Testaments!)
A heck of a lot assumed? Like, this is the rabbi who threatened to sue the airport commission because of the Christmas trees. pretty simple stuff, methinks. Yes the article says he is appalled. I wonder how appalled he would be if we put crosses up in his synagogue? This is a Christmas display to celebrate a Christian holiday. Just leave it alone, Rabbi.
Or burned some crosses outside his synagogue. Or took a hammer to his menorah. For Christmas! Fighting that War on Christmas which you can’t have without a War on Chanukah.
