The War on Hanukkah

The Seattle Rabbi who pressured Seattle's SeaTac Airport to put up a Menorah along with the rest of it's holiday decorations has been flooded with hate mail and threatening phone calls.

The airport overreacted, pulling down Christmas trees instead of putting up a Menorah.
"We are not part of the war on Christmas. All we asked for was inclusion and now we're getting hate mail and angry messages." -- Harvey Grad, attorney for Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky
