Obama Admin Pushes Syrian Refugee Resettlement at Hanukkah Ceremony

I mean, what better opportunity there is to push for resettlement of Jew haters?
(Truth Revolt) Sunday marked the first night of Hanukkah this year and the White House used the lighting of the National Menorah to push President Obama's efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in the United States.

Said White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough: "So this is a joyous occasion, and yet as we heard earlier we are mindful that even as we gather here tonight, that while the light of freedom burns brightly for us and for our generation, it flickers for others," he said as he stood before a 30-foot menorah on the Ellipse in front of the White House.

"Refugees fleeing religious intolerance and oppression. People targeted for their faith, people whose faith is perverted by others," McDonough continued. "We are Americans, and as Americans we do not turn our backs on those who seek sanctuary. Nor do we stay quiet in the face of bigotry or intolerance. We stand up for those persecuted around the world."

"We remember this season that we too were once strangers, that our inheritance gives an obligation to remain true to our values, that as Jewish tradition teaches, by saving one life, we save the world," McDonough said.

President Obama released a Hanukkah statement on Sunday, although it did not mention the Syrian Refugees.

"At its heart, Hanukkah is about the struggle for justice in the face of overwhelming obstacles," said Obama. "It's a chance to reflect on the triumph of liberty over tyranny, the rejection of persecution, and on the miracles that can happen even in our darkest hours. It renews our commitment as Americans — as people who live by faith and conscience — to lead the way and act as unyielding advocates for the fundamental dignity of every human being."
