I’m all for putting Christ back into Christmas.
There should definitely be mas Christ in Christmas.
What I don’t get is putting Judah Macabi in the Jesus wheelhouse.

Everywhere I look these days I see stores and lobbies and offices decorated for the “Holidays”.
There would be no holiday decorations if it weren’t for Christmas.
I’m more aware of a disturbing phenomena this year due to solar and lunar calendar discrepancies.
Next to all the stockings hung with glee, are fully lit menorahs or as they are also called, hanukiahs.

I appreciate the welcoming sense of inclusiveness but Khanikeh has been over for almost two weeks.
Here’s the deal with menorahs and the Festival of Lights.
Staring on the eve of the first day one candle plus the “helper” candle is lit, adding one more each night until the eighth night.
When the sun goes down at the end of the eighth day (night number nine) they get unplugged and packed away until the next year.

Menorahs and dreydels aren’t supposed to be Christmas decorations any more than potato latkes being used as communion wafers.
Khanikeh and Christmas are not interchangeable and blurring the lines between them cheapens the franchise on both accounts.

It’s like eating pastrami on white bread with mayonnaise or ham and cheese on a garlic bagel or chicken liver on pizza.
What’s next, Easter bunnies made out of potato starch, matzoh meal and cottonseed oil?
I guarantee that every year when Khanikeh was over Jesus packed up his menorah until the next go around.

To our Christian fans, Merry Christmas, and to every one, a new year of health, happiness and peace.

TaxiThe Holidays are now behind us, but I would like to share a personal experience with my friends and readers about drinking and driving. 

Some of us have had brushes with the law while on the way home after a “social session” with friends.

Well, two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather nice red wine.

Feeling jolly, I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit.

That’s when I did something that I’ve never done before — I took a cab home.

Sure enough, I encountered a police check point, but since I was in a cab, they waved it on.

I arrived home safe and sound.

This was surprising as I had never before driven a cab.

I don’t know where I got it, and now that it’s in my garage, I don’t know what to do with it!

Now you know.

Long live the Jews!

Christians Besieged
Islamists on the attack in Africa

By Benny Avni| NYP

The Christmas season’s become a time to reflect on the fate of Christians around the world, from the besieged ancient communities of the Middle East to the tyrannized worshippers in China. But let us not ignore the violent threats to Christians in Africa.

Men belonging to Boko Haram murdered at least 10 people in the Nigerian village of Chibok earlier this month. Armed with guns and knives, they slit the throats of victims before burning their houses down. Eleven others were killed the month before in the town of Jaji when a car loaded with explosives rammed into a church.

Gay Muslim Dong Slurpers!

Ansar Dine fighters: Members of the al Qaeda-affiliated terror group that has siezed control of Timbuktu and the rest of northern Mali.

In northern Nigeria, the anti-Western, anti-Christian, anti-government Boko Haram is the top Islamist terror gang. Since 2009, its atrocities have killed at least 3,000 people in Africa’s most populous nation.

Half of Nigeria (mostly in the south) is Christian. Christians outnumber Muslims — but if Boko Haram has its way, that ratio will change.

As far as the group’s ideologues are concerned, sharia — Islamic law — must rule the country. Non-Muslim symbols, such as churches or crosses (and for that matter anything else that might have been touched by Western influence), are haram (forbidden). Anyone even suspected of holding Christian or other non-Muslim beliefs is a fair target.

Boko Haram isn’t all that well organized. Its ideologues often recruit run-of-the-mill thugs in targeting the infidels. Rape, maiming and looting often precede vicious killings.

Oh, and Boko Haram isn’t alone in Africa. Militant Islamists are spreading from the traditionally Muslim deserts of the Maghreb along the Mediterranean, moving south to spots like Somalia, Mali, Niger and Kenya.

Groups fighting Christians and other non-Muslim religionists aren’t necessarily linked (though many are inspired by al Qaeda). Iran and Sunni factions around the globe compete in nurturing and financing the fanatics — in some cases exporting fighters to Africa.

Of course, many African Muslims prefer to live in harmony with their Christian neighbors and tolerate adherents of other religions. But the Arab Spring success of sharia-based parties in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya has emboldened those who, like Boko Haram, would rather see all Christians gone. Arms flowing from post-Khadafy Libya stoke the fires further. (more…)

A Christmas Message from Jesus

JESUS CHRIST

by JESUS H. CHRIST

Jesus H. ChristWell, it’s that time of year again.

Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards Men as we jockey for position on check out lines and slug-fest our way to grab the last PlayStation 3, or whatever the toy of the year is.

I always get a little depressed before my birthday, but this year I find myself overcome with one of the deadly seven sins — envy.

How can this be?

As I look back on the year, all I can think about is how much Muslims do for Mohammed: Kidnappings, beheadings, murder of non-believers, murdering fellow Muslims, homicide bombings; I get dizzy from all the honor bestowed on my esteemed colleague. It’s a litany of acts that go above and beyond anything Christians have done for me lately.

Where is the Sword of Christ for Christ sakes?

Are Christians still buying into that turn the other cheek prank?

Think back a few short years to what was done to Jews for my sake. I can’t even get a speck of Onward Christians Soldiers when it comes to Islamofascists.

Is it because the Jews were no threat and easy to pick on?

Now there is a threat to Christianity unseen since Roman lions in the coliseum and I can’t even get a “Hoorah” from any one.

Are Christians too busy these days marveling at the miracle of my image appearing in someone’s mashed potatoes?

I’m one-third of the frickin’ Trinity.

If I’m going to make an appearance, it will be something grander and more concrete than putting my face in a bowl of soup.

Don’t worry so much about putting Christ back in Christmas. I would have a happier birthday if people put Christ up the poop shoot of jihadists before Christmas itself is subject to laws of dhimmitude world-wide.

Blessed are the peacemakers, and I’m talking about 50-caliber peacemakers. Celebrate my birthday by standing up to Islamofascism any chance you get. It’s the best present any Son of God could ask for.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night… wait… that’s Santa’s line.

OK. Just Merry Christmas.

This forwarded post from Mychal Massie’s The Daily Rant  will provide a concise yet accurate and succinct history of the modern fabrication known as Kwanzaa.

"I'm really Black on the inside"

“I’m really Black on the inside”

Nancy Pelosi Abandons Halloween For Kwanzaa  by Mychal Massie

So I shall leave it to the reader to explore this questionable phenomenon on their own, and use my words in other heretofore less explored quizzical endeavors.

"My lesions are starting to itch like my last case of Scabies!"

“My lesions are starting to itch like my last case of scabies!”

What would cause one, such as the Rev. Al “the PAL“(definitions 1sub2 and 7 apply equally) Sharpton who has publicly stated same, to want to perform the valuable service of “de-whitizing” Christmas?  As far as I am aware the only thing “white” about Christmas is the snow in Northern Latitudes.  Unless of course he was referring to the kind of “snow” that ol’ Al is suspected of shoveling up his nose lately.  Or perhaps there is another reason behind “the PAL’s” dramatically apparent weight-loss come lately?

In honor of Christmas, the Israeli team Latma (of “We Con the World” fame) have just released a YouTube video about how the Christians are persecuted in Muslim countries. The song is called “Jihad Bells”, and it’s a parody of, you guessed it, Jingle Bells. It is both factual, funny, and very apropos for the season and your website. It is 3:57 long, the first 1:22 is in Hebrew with professional English subtitles, but the song itself is in clear-spoken English. This video has the potential to be a hit among Aware Americans (a.k.a. conservatives), and I really want to see this go viral for the sake of not-so-educated Americans.

While this Ben Stein piece is a couple of years old, I thought it was well worth posting here given that Christmas is near.

Herewith at this happy time of year, a few confessions from my beating heart:

I have no freaking clue who Nick and Jessica are. I see them on the cover of People and Us constantly when I am buying my dog biscuits and kitty litter. I often ask the checkers at the grocery stores. They never know who Nick and Jessica are either. Who are they? Will it change my life if I know who they are and why they have broken up? Why are they so important? I don’t know who Lindsay Lohan is, either, and I do not care at all about Tom Cruise’s wife. (more…)
