Luis Suarez, John Terry & MP Burley - Happy Chanukah
What do lawyers who oppose public Menorahs on state property think of the Rabbis who put them there? What do Pakistani Muslims feel about Jews and America? And how do Greeks feel about Chanukah? A message for the footballers… A few years ago I was invited to light the Chanukah Menorah with Arnold Schwarzenegger when he was Governor of California. During the de-light-full ceremony, at the State Capitol in Sacramento. special mention was made of Rabbi Gavriel and Rivky Holtzberg, agents of good who were murdered a few months earlier during the Mumbai attacks. It was a peaceful and friendly Chanukah experience, where people of all faiths and backgrounds celebrated the religious freedom afforded by America- even the self-proclaimed: "lefty" Jewish lawyer who happened to be walking past during a recess in his trial case. He stopped by while we were setting up and decided to register his protest against religious symbols on state property.
