Obama “Hanukah”: Hmmm . . . Why Didn’t Barack do Ramadan Iftar Dinner 2 Wks B/f Ramadan?

By Debbie Schlussel

Every year, the American President lights a menorah on Chanukah at the White House (that’s “Hanukah” to the ignorant secular Jews who voted for the guy and can’t pronounce Hebrew words).  The key phrase is “on Chanukah.”  But not Barack Obama, not this year.  Nope.  He “celebrated” the Jewish holiday two weeks early, tonight.  Huh?  Hmmm . . . funny, I don’t seem to recall the Ramadan Iftar dinners he hosted for Muslim NFL players and Dearbornistan high school football coaches taking place  two weeks before Ramadan.  Because that would be an insult to Muslims and Islam, and he goes out of his way to make sure to pander to every single detail when it comes to them, the fellow co-religionists of his father and most of his family.  But when it comes to the Judeo-Christian holidays of a Judeo-Christian nation, there’s no problem insulting the evil JOOOOOOS.  Normally, as I’ve said repeatedly on this site before, the President lighting Chanukah candles isn’t important to me, especially if his policies toward Israel are unMaccabean. What he does in foreign policy is more important than lame, staged attempts to show he’s down wit’ da Jewish struggle in a very cubic zirconium way.  This is on top of his non-kosher Passover stunt Seder.  Do ya think he’d host a Ramadan Iftar dinner that wasn’t halal?  Puh-leeze.

But this is truly an insult, and it’s deliberate.  Obama knows what he’s doing. So do his scheduling staffers.  They know when Chanukah is (sunset December 20th through nightfall December 28th), and they just don’t care.  Obama simply can’t be bothered to show any respect to the Jewish people. After all, he has them eating out of his hand and voting for him in large droves, which I guarantee you will be repeated in 2012, no matter who the GOP nominee is.

Below is the video of this BS.  While we Jews don’t have mass-murdering riots when someone shows a little skin, I have a question:  do you think that Michelle Hussein Obama wore a sleeveless outfit, which would offend Muslims, for the Ramadan  Iftar dinner?  Dream on. And again, the Ramadan affair was held . . . on Ramadan. Thanks Obama.  If you’re not gonna do Chanukah right, don’t do it at all, schmuck.

Well stated, Debbie. The truly nauseating aspect is that most people don’t realize what an insult this is to religious Jews and will erroneously think that it’s no big deal – sort of like celebrating a kid’s birthday on a Saturday when more people can attend the party.

As you succinctly pointed out, though, is that that horrid monstrosity in the White House (and his staffers) knows exactly what he’s doing and are laughing about it.

    Forget about insults. I can take an insult.

    You see, there are three things about Chanukah which cause immense political problems for Presidents who work for the Saudi petrochemical lobby. Chanukah celebrates:

    1. The Jews won a war and nobody griped about “the injustice of it all”.

    2. The indisputable existence of an independent Jewish nation in Palestine hundreds of years before the birth of Mohammed.

    3. The re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem; the eternal capital of the Jewish people.

    In summary, Chanukah refutes the Muslim claim on Palestine like no other date on the Jewish calendar. Chanukah insults Islam.

    That’s why the President deliberately kept his WH Menorah lighting ceremony low-key.

    TINSC: AMEN! Well said. DS

I was under the impression that the two spellings were interchangeable. Apparently not. So, is “Chanukah” the actual correct way to refer to the holiday?

cirrus1701 on December 8, 2011 at 9:30 pm

I agree DS, this disgraceful POS WILL be re-elected next year. I am not giving up, I just feel most Yanks are asleep and the Dems have not even started to open their bag of dirty tricks to make sure he’s re-elected to finish America off. I certainly will NOT be because of me that this pig and his horrible wife are re-elected. It will not be pretty when 2016 hits.

I’d like an actual tally of all the Christian and Jewish holidays (or events) he ignored or phoned in and all the Moooooslim crap he happily celebrated. I have been thinking about the ratio a lot lately.

I know the dumb bastard is going on vacation starting on the 17th. It’s funny how no one on the Left cares how much these charlatans party or go on vacation. Gosh, they make me projectile vomit rabid hamsters!!!!

Is this really something to get offended by…I understand that he is not holding it during Hanakuh – but I think thats because he will not be in town as he will be on Christmas Break…Just trying to play devils advocate

    You should look at your Bible and ask where Christianity comes from? Without Judaism, Christianity would have never had a start. The Christian New Testament constantly refers back to Hebrew scripture in order to justify itself. If you sever that link, Jesus just appears as some first century charlatan or lunatic claiming to be a god who was executed by the Romans for disturbing public order. That is all that there would be if you decided to strip everything related to Judaism out of Christianity.

    Worry on December 9, 2011 at 3:44 am

    Actually, it’s neither, Pilgrim. The U.S. is an American nation, as the Framers had intended. The word “Christian” isn’t in the Constitution for a reason.

    Seek on December 9, 2011 at 12:01 pm


    You are not only a scumbag, but an ignorant one at that. First, no mention is made of either religion in the Constituion or the Declaration of Independence. And yes, while Jews were on Columbus’ boat, funded and fought in the Revolutionary War (and every war thereafter, in greater proportions to their number) and were among the first graduates of West Point, Protestants primarily founded America.

    However, when citing the Bible, these men just about always cited to the OLD TESTAMENT. They referred to America as ZION. They talked of Moses, of Abraham, of the G-d as portrayed in the Old Testament.

    George Washington, Adams, and others had Jewish friends which influenced them.

    I could go on and on, but you are just an anti-Semitic bigoted ass, who, along with your relatives, probably wore dresses or hid when your country came calling for men to serve, unlike my Jewish relatives, all of whom served.

    Drop dead.

    Jonathan E. Grant on December 9, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Tell it to Sweeney, or maybe your cousin Adolph, or maybe to the first nations that were here before your ancestors murdered most of them. By the way putz what holiday was the last supper celebrating, a Judeo-Christian, or Christian?

    Ron Wolf on December 11, 2011 at 10:00 pm

While I believe this country is a secular country (not based on any one religion) – I do SOMEWHAT agree with Bill (although I am not a fan of his tone) that it is most likely to be associated with a Christian Nation. Our founders were all Christians. While Muslims and Jews have played a part in building this nation (along with other cultures and religions) it was initially founded by Christian forefathers. BUT they founded this country with a clear SEPARATION of Church and State. This is why I don’t think any president should be hosting any religious dinners as I believe this violates the separation of Church and State (not Ramadan, Chanakuh, or Christmas)

Tebowing on December 8, 2011 at 10:18 pm

Wow. Three absolute wackos in a row.

Don’t follow George A-hole, silly kids. He’s too busy drooling over photos of Miss Crunken Hezbo-USA to take anything here seriously.

George A-hole, you’re an absolute fraud and I hope the others here are on to you.

Skunky on December 8, 2011 at 10:35 pm

The real separation as TJ set it forth many years ago in his letter is that the religion we choose is a G_d given right not a right given by government.

Now for Our so called president.

He is obviously mocking Chanukah.

His expression, his tone, that he has to make a “big deal” out of it for him, attests to the phoniness of his acts.

    Darnesha on May 24, 2014 at 9:58 am

Well, he is supposed to be in Hawaii on vacation (again) on the 17th. But he might still be in town for some more political grandstanding. The wookie will be flying to Hawaii on schedule and barry will follow when it is convenient. So yaaa taxpayers get to pay for 2 separate trips to Hawaii.

Also like the remark that ‘We Never Need an Excuse For a Good Party’. Must be celebrating those unemployment numbers huh barry. I will not mind or complain about paying for his unemployment next year, but wish we could get a refund on the coming retirement checks.

Ender on December 8, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    Ender, you are a racist POS.

    Max3000 on December 9, 2011 at 2:43 pm

      Awwwww, poor Maxi is offended because Ender (and I do it too!) referred to Michelle Antoinette (the surly First Lady) what she looks like….Chewbacca.

      Ender is NOT racist. But Michelle Antoinette sure is!

      And the funny thing about these two Zeros…they sure are evil BUT they always let you know where they are coming from. They are sick, narcissists but also have a raging compulsion to confess. (“All this for a flag”???)

      Sure, those NOT in the know can’t see it, but those on to them never miss it.

      MaObama hates the Jews, hates Israel, loves to twist in the knife in when he can and at times, says the truth out loud (that they like to par-tay!). We are on to him.

      Skunky on December 9, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Actually bill with out the jews their is no Christ. So yes we are a Judeo-Christian Nation.

I was surprised that after lighting the candles and reading the teleprompter that barry didn’t blow out the candles and make a wish.

Ender on December 8, 2011 at 10:56 pm

Hi Debbie. First of all I am undertaking a major overhaul of your Hanukkah present this year. I know you’ve been hoping for the tricked out EZ bake oven with separate kosher milk n’ meat doors and disco lights, but I’ve come up with something that will really knock your socks off. As for BHO it makes sense he celebrates Hanukkah on the wrong nite. The same phony Jews who ate ham sandwiches with him on Passover could give a rat’s ass about when Hanukkah is. Go Maccabis.

JeffE on December 8, 2011 at 11:46 pm

Of course I agree that he has no respect for Jewish people, and is anti-Semitic.

Having said that though,I wonder if this may be an inept way to get attention back the day after the Republican Jewish Committee elicited pro-Israel statements from most of the Republican candidates. Although I realize that such statements are symbolic, electoral promises, unlikely to be carried out, they still got some attention, and a low Jewish vote (low being around 60% instead of 80%), could cost him Florida, and possibly one or two other states. Since he will not do anything really favorable towards Israel, he may have decided to do something like this, the day after, to get attention back. He knows that empty, and even somewhat insulting gestures have helped him with Jewish voters before.

Little Al on December 9, 2011 at 12:25 am

Obama never mentioned G_d and that it was a miracle that happened. The oil lasted eight days instead of one.

Let’s celebrate Christmas tomorrow!

We’ll have a reason to party when this bozo is gone!

Obamammamma on December 9, 2011 at 12:30 am

It is obvious where his heart truly is, even if he is not a Muslim.

Worry on December 9, 2011 at 2:32 am

“Obama simply can’t be bothered to show any respect to the Jewish people. After all, he has them eating out of his hand and voting for him in large droves, which I guarantee you will be repeated in 2012”

I’m expecting a modest drop-off in Jewish support for Obama, but nothing like that in 1980 when Carter received “only” 45% of the Jewish vote. But the fact is today’s Jewish voters are operating off a different historic memory. Those who experienced the Holocaust and Israel’s founding, or (like me) the 1967 and 1973 wars form a shrinking proportion of the Jewish electorate. And to the extent that Jewish voters take their cues from the Jewish leadership here, well, most of the heads of major “Jewish” organizations are liberals.

Tebowing’s meanwhile claims that “While Muslims and Jews have played a part in building this nation (along with other cultures and religions) it was initially founded by Christian forefathers.” Well we know about the Jewish role going back to the country’s founding (Jews helped finance and fought in the War of Independence). But exactly what role did Muslims play in “building this nation”? Few were even here prior to the 20th century.

If President O’Bama can’t be present during Chanukah to light the WH menorah on the proper day, I wouldn’t be offended if he had VP Biden do the honors. That’s just me.

Deb, perhaps Chanukah creates a dilemma for President O’Bama. You see… in these modern times, I no longer believe the “miracle of Chanukah” was that the oil lasted 8 days. The REAL miracle of Chanukah (and the President’s dilemma) is that it marks the last time the Jews won a war and nobody griped about the “injustice of it all”. THAT, my dear is a dilemma for THIS President.

The celebration of Chanukah also makes note of the indisputable fact that Jews had an independent nation in Palestine hundreds of years before the birth of Mohammed. It also marks the Jewish restoration of the Temple in Jerusalem; another dilemma for this President. Just in case you are wondering why the ceremony was deliberately low-key.

There is NO Santa Claus on December 9, 2011 at 8:42 am

Christians and Jews have a shared Biblical tradition. The Christian Scriptures teach that Jesus celebrated Chanukah (Feast of Dedication). Obama’s “Christianity” a la Rev Wright is no more Christianity than is the Jew Jewish who is a transvestite atheist. The Biblical Christian can’t be anti-Semitic. The Biblical Christian must support Israel. A Biblical faith is the Christian’s heritage from Israel. Obama is everything Biblical Christianity is not. As a retired military officer, I should would like to see this a one term president.

John Castle on December 9, 2011 at 8:47 am

One of my historical heroes, Cicero, has a great quote for the farce Obama engaged in last night, speech & all:

“Such praise, coming from so degraded a source, was degrading to me, its recipient.”…Marcus Tullius Cicero

Why say it yourself when someone of FAR more consequence said it better long ago?

Con Chef (NB) on December 9, 2011 at 11:06 am

To Obama, Israel is “Little Satan” and the United States is “Big Satan”.

burt on December 9, 2011 at 11:09 am

Here is the thing, Deborah (and any other Jews here), Jews need to (once and for all) pick a side. As Jews continue to play both (any and all) sides. Either Jews are for or against Christians or Muslims, that is what it comes down to. Fact is, Jews have proven that they most certainly are not for Christians (check the Jew run media, which CONSTANTLY bashes Christians at every single possible turn). So, make your choice. I was always pro-Jew until I saw what was going on behind the scenes, Jews themselves have turned me away from them. Same could happen with other Christians if you don’t watch out.

Gregory on December 9, 2011 at 11:11 am

    Gee, Gregory. There’s just as many gentile progressives who seek to destroy our Republic. But you fail to mention that.

    Ho-hum. I guess you’re right. Its all the “ze CHOOOOS” fault. Simpleton.

    Con Chef (NB) on December 9, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    Is that just Gregory, or Pope Gregory? I guess us Jews should mind our P’s and Q’s and be thankful for good Christians like yourself.

    Ron Wolf on December 11, 2011 at 10:12 pm

Shameful! However, these people have no shame. We have anti Israeli / pro Islamic occupants living in public housing called the White House. Pray for a change in occupancy!

When I am asked how so many Jews could vote for Obama in particular and democrats in general, my answer is simple. These misled people may be called Jewish, but their true religion is LIBERALISM. This is what they practice, not the faith of their Fathers. Sad.

Herbster on December 9, 2011 at 11:32 am

Brings to mind the awkward Gomer Pyle line when wanting to say something nice to his first date: “You don’t sweat much for a fat girl”.
How awkward must it be for an anti-Semite to feign respect for anything Jewish? Our president gives us a glimpse. Points for self-discipline, I guess.

lee on December 9, 2011 at 11:54 am

It also appears that his menorah isn’t kosher – the shamash is lower than the other candles.

David on December 9, 2011 at 11:56 am

Well said, Debbie. But why expect anything else from him? Besides, waiting till Chanukah would interfere with his vacation!

Gary Sack on December 9, 2011 at 12:18 pm

This is a Judeo-Christian nation, as our founding was based on principles found in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.
Obama not only celebrates the holiday early (I guess he couldn’t be bothered while on vacation in Hawaii), but he lights all 8 candles. If an politician or a member of his administration acted this way towards a Muslim holiday, Obama would be criticizing that person (who would probably be in hiding).

Concerned Citizen on December 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm

“It also appears that his menorah isn’t kosher – the shamash is lower than the other candles.

David on December 9, 2011 at 11:56 am”

I was gonna say that but you already noticed it. Yeah, the hanukiyah is not kosher, just like everything this anti-semite attempts to pass off as his love of da Joooooos. He’s a fraud.

FrenchKiss on December 9, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Is everything around and about this president fake and a lie and a total screw-up?

Why use matches to light the candles when you have the Chevy Volt?

Barry Popik on December 9, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Jews like Blacks are the one group of voters for whom liberalism is their religion. Those Jews who vote for Obama won’t be doing so because of their Judaism but because of all the other things minus Israel on which they agree with him. And they could care less he makes a mockery of Hanukkah or is the most anti-Israel President we have ever had. All the same, they WILL vote for him again.

NormanF on December 9, 2011 at 1:51 pm


Hey, I just learned a couple of new things from reading the previous comments!

I learned what a “shamash” is, and I learned that it’s supposed to be taller than the other candles on a menorah.

As for the spelling of “Hannukah”, i’ve seen it spelled three or four different ways, and I’ve heard Jewish comedians joke that Jews can’t agree on how “Hannukah” is supposed to be spelled.

But, sadly, yes, it is rather obvious that the Soetoro family and their cohorts intended to deliberately insult the Jews.

As for the historic relationship between Judaisim and Christianity in the United States of America, my own chosen faith of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints believes and teaches that America is the “Promised Land”, where descendents of ancient Israelite refugees settled, where the lost ten tribes of Israel will someday appear, and that Jerusalem is the home of the Jews, where the Messiah shall appear.

In other words, I can NOT separate my religion from my country, for Mormonism and Americanism are one and the same.

Similarly, the destiny of the United States of America and the destiny of Israel are inseparably linked together.

Thank you.

I regularly encounter jews in my reform congregation that are Obama supporters, and they are typically the most ignorant of current events. They are mislead by a false sense of liberalism that being a Democrat is a more responsible position that embraces social justice. Of course this is a false premise, but these people are sheep and move as a flock.

Unfortunately the head rabbi was coopted early in the political process by a trip to Washington and even added a comment or two at the high holidays from the beamah that the current administration really has Israel’s best interests at heart. My conclusion is that most Jews support Obama because they are politically mindless zombies who have never critically examined their political positions. They support the Obama administration decrying Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem and at the same time buy Israel bonds to show their support for Israel and never see any contradiction in their positions.

Our prayer for Chanukah should be the strike

I looked for photo’s of both the Whitehouse Seder dinner and the Ramadan dinner.

Has anyone else noticed that the Seder dinner is about ten people sitting at a table and Ramadan dinner is about 100 people in a ballroom, with Obama making a speech from a presidental podium?

Anyone else find that odd?
