'Palestinians' upset over Menorahs in Samaria

Chanuka starts on Wednesday night, and as is the case in Jewish communities around Israel and around the world, Menorahs will be on display outside people's homes and outside the entrances to their communities. The Menorah pictured above is outside the Jewish community of Kfar Tapuach, which is in Samaria, and it has gotten the 'Palestinians' quite upset.
[Google translation]

Nablus, WAFA 29/11/2010 - Settlers placed a huge brass candlestick on the outskirts of the city of Nablus in the West Bank.

Witnesses said that the menorah set by a crane near the triangle Za'tara a few kilometers south of Nablus, and pointed out that this region is a center to collect a number of extremist Jewish settlements.

The menorah is often used in Jewish religious rituals, and ideology settlers in the West Bank seek to impose their through these actions.
David Ha'ivri, Director of the Shomron Liaison Office said in response:
Chanuka is one of the most nationally identifying holidays of the Jewish people, we celebrate the amazing victories of the Maccabees who fought against all odds and succeeded in freeing our holy city Jerusalem from the Greek invaders and re-lit the candles of the Menorah on the Temple Mount. Through these brave actions the heroic Macabee warriors set down the barrier to assimilation of the Jewish people into the nations. Historicaly all of the battles of the Jewish army under the leadership of Yehuda Macabee took place within the areas of Yehuda and Shomron (the West Bank) and the most famous of them all was the purification of the Temple Mount. Those are the events that we celebrate for 8 days starting tonight. Around the world Jews will hold public display of the candle lighting but there is no place more significant then showing the light of Chanuka in Shomron and Yehuda.
And now you're all about to get an education, because here's a map of where all the Macabee battles took place:

Like I said, Jews need to perpetrate more "hate crimes" like this one just for the pleasure of seeing the Palestinians get fit to be tied over it.


Happy Hanukkah!
