A Hanukkah thought experiment

Imagine we had a Jewish president. Now its holiday time, and our Jewish president has invited a group of Christians to the White House for the annual tree lighting ceremony. Afterwards, one of the guests gets up and sings a traditional song, a song consisting of these lyrics:

O God 
to praise You is a delight. 
We can't wait to worship you further
After You have prepared the slaughter 
of our blaspheming foes

Inconceivable right? There'd be an outrage. Abe Foxman would have multiple heart attacks. The singer of the song would be widely denounced.

So how cool is it that year after year some Jew gets to sing Maoz Tzur directly to a Christian president's face?

PS: As you have no doubt realized, the song's final stanza contains a direct reference to the Republican party:

Repel the Red One in the nethermost shadow
and establish for us the seven shepherds.


Start at @7:50 to avoid the speeches. Yes, this is from 2010.

Search for more information about our blaspheming foes
