“WASHINGTON — The latkes were fried and the kosher lamb chops were prepared on Thursday, just as in past years, for the first White House Hanukkah party of the Trump era. But there was one prominent break with tradition: President Trump did not invite Democratic lawmakers. …
This year’s Hanukkah party was all the more joyous for attendees because it came the day after Mr. Trump delighted many Jews, particularly those politically allied with him, by declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel and recommitting himself to moving the American Embassy there.
“People are in a celebratory mood and just kvelling over this incredible, historic moment,” said Morton Klein, the president of the Zionist Organization of America, who planned to attend the reception as well as a “Hanukkah Nightcap” party afterward at the Trump International Hotel. That affair was hosted by the Republican Jewish Coalition, the organization funded by the casino magnate and Republican superdonor Sheldon Adelson, and America First Action, a political action committee staffed by Trump allies. …”
No one was happier this Hanukkah than Sheldon Adelson who will get the $80 million back he used to purchase the Trump administration’s foreign policy through his corporate tax cut and the increase in value of his investments. The Shabbos Goys who thought they were going to Make America Great Again have instead gotten AIPAC’s agenda in their stocking this Christmas.
Perhaps AIPAC and Bibi Netanyahu can manuever us into a ground war with Iran by Passover? In light of their achievements this past year, I doubt they are tired of winning.
