Putting Chanukah in Context

Steve Postal’s Arutz Sheva OpEd is one we like as it puts the Chanukah story in correct context with Judea and Samaria at the forefront.

An inconvenient TRUTH for the foes of Israel is that the real story of Chanukah is the Jews’ re-gaining autonomy in their ancestral homeland of Judea and Samaria, this time from the Greek Seleucid Empire. The Hanukkah story represents nothing short of the religious and national emancipation of the Jewish people.

To put Hanukkah in context, the Jews had Sovereignty or partial Sovereignty/autonomy over Judea and Samaria during numerous periods throughout Jewish history.
