As usual a large candelabra called a Menorah has appeared in the foreground of the George Hall in Liverpool. A member of staff in the George Hall Heritage centre informed that this is to celebrate the Jewish festival of Chanukkah and has been placed by Liverpool City Council. Chanukkah is observed for eight nights and days starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar. This may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar. It is ‘curious’ then that it is always chosen to co-side with the Christmas period. There is a very sinister plot afoot, for example the precise time chosen to place the Menorah, about a week prior to Christmas, yet there is not a Christmas tree in sight.
All too quickly our beloved traditional Christmas is being stolen away from our folk. Only last year a nativity play was postponed in favour of a Muslim festival. The Christmas holidays are replayed with bland terms such as ‘winterval’ and already people are wishing each other ‘happy holiday’ or ‘seasons greetings’ instead of a rousing MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Yet this is only the beginning. So far a huge decorated Christmas tree stands proudly in Liverpool’s Lord Street, but for how long. 80% of Americans confess to be Christian yet it is illegal to place any Christian paraphernalia on public land. In fact Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky threatened the Port of Seattle with a law suit if they did not place a menorah next to the Christmas Trees in Seatac airport cancelling Christmas for the majority of travellers. Yet can you imagine what icon was erected just across from the White House-yes that’s right a huge great Menorah.
