In the United States, the "War on Christmas" is a weird fantasy in which people pretend that the mere acknowledgment of other religious/ethnic traditions is an attack on Christianity/American Values. In Israel, though, the War on Christmas is real.
If American conservatives want to know what a real War on Christmas might look like, they should probably visit the Holy Land. Something called the "Lobby for Jewish Values" is actually, for real, campaigning against restaurants that display Christmas trees and wreaths. And it is just not just the nuts! Every year, the Jerusalem Rabbinate threatens to revoke the kosher certification of restaurants that display "Christian symbols."
According to the lobby's Chairman, Ofer Cohen, they have received backing by the rabbis, "and we are even considering publishing the names of the businesses that put up Christian symbols ahead of the Christian holiday and call for a boycott against them."
Fliers and ads distributed among the public read, "The people of Israel have given their soul over the years in order to maintain the values of the Torah of Israel and the Jewish identity.
"You should also continue to follow this path of the Jewish people's tradition and not give in to the clownish atmosphere of the end of the civil year. And certainly not help those businesses that sell or put up the foolish symbols of Christianity."
The "clownish atmosphere" of Christmas? That is too far. It is time for the United States to invade Israel and topple their tyrannical government, in order to protect the rights of their Christian minority.
