Will the Knesset display a Christmas tree this week to commemorate the holiday on behalf of the Christian citizens and MKs?

No, it will not.

Speaker of the House Yuli Edelstein said he does not see the idea of installing a Christmas tree as being appropriate. Many MKs have seen it as a provocation and consider it unacceptable. (source: Ladaat)

As it should not be.

Despite that, if you really want, you can buy from Hadar Geula these beautiful Christmas-themed cookies with a Badatz hechsher..  for 20 NIS those better be really good cookies!

  1. Why not? It would have looked good next to a golden calf, or a statue of Molekh, or perhaps a naked prostitute honoring ‘Jezebel.’

  2. good, a christmas tree has no place in the knesset!

  3. Lee Warren says:

    When in Rome…………….. The same goes for in Israel.

  4. Eli Benmord says:

    I bloody well hope so

  5. But Muslims have places in Knesset… something wrong!

  6. Lisa Kamins says:

    honestly, Israel's can really be a bit foolish, if not stupid. this is a Jewish State. We do not celebrate Christian holidays, the Christians so not celebrate Jewish Holidays. GET OVER IT! Be loyal to your own, and don't worry about the others. as to the cookies, somethings are rather beyond me, like the tree, all kinds of fools in this world and the Knesset is not short of them.
