With the upcoming Chanuka "festival of lights" holiday approaching, the Shomron Regional Council has been erecting large Menorahs around the Shomron, as is commonplace around the world from the US White House to New Zealand.
Unfortunately, the Palestinian Authority (which has vowed never recognize Israel as a Jewish State) is upset with the large menorahs being erected into the Shomron.
The "WAFA" Palestinian News Agency reports today about these new large menorahs on their Arabic Website:
Nablus, WAFA 29/11/2010 - Settlers construct 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 [Tapuach Junction] a few kilometers south of Nablus, and pointed out that this region is a center to a number of extremist Jewish settlements.
"The menorah is often used in Jewish religious rituals, and it seeks to impose settler ideology in the West Bank through these actions." (Wafa)
If you would like to help subsidize the costs of any of these offensive Menoras, please contact David at the Shomron Regional Council Liason office.
