Biden Hosts Sukkot Event

By: JTA

Vice President Joe Biden hosted Jewish leaders at a sukkah set up at his residence.

The sukkah, provided by American Friends of Lubavitch and decorated by children with special needs, drew dozens of guests to the residence at Washington’s Naval Observatory on Tuesday evening, including leaders of the Reform, Conservative and Orthodox streams, major pro-Israel and Jewish defense groups, top Jewish Democrats, donors to the Obama-Biden campaigns and the parents of the Jewish spouses of his children.

Biden joked with guests, claiming to have built the sukkah himself and saying he wanted to bring out his sleeping bag and stay in it overnight but the secret service would not allow it.

“The thought of our grandparents and great-grandparents celebrating Jewish holidays in the citadel of American power would be unfathomable, and for us to be standing there with lulav and etrog in hand is a great testament to America’s acceptance of the Jewish people,” said William Daroff, the Washington director of the Jewish Federations of North America.

    It would have been better if the Muslim sympathizer Mr. Obama to have hosted this event on the White House lawn. But as he hates Israel for its existence he didn't. I am not looking for an argument I just state my opinion perhaps we need another great Rebbe and a Golem.

  2. Joe Biden is a traitor and should be drawn and quartered for throwing a party for the enemy.

  3. Anonymous says:

    The self proclaimed smartest people ever are actually the dumbest most self deluded morons ever. Over and over and over and over…

  4. Really, where and when has Obama stated he 'hated Israel?'

  5. Yechiel Baum says:

    Since moslem Obama was invited, obviously he is the enemy of the world.

  6. Yechiel Baum says:

    correct! kissing the dirty asses of the moslems makes them so and their smell makes them hallucinate.

    You are not going to get an argument, just the facts, you are an idiot who would not know or understand the truth if G-d himself told it to you!

  10. I'd make a comment but I've already been banned at too many sites for telling the truth.

    It looks like Joe Biden turned his back on his Catholic faith; so, doesn't that make him an apostate? The Church should excommunicate him to make his apostasy authentic.

    Remember, Obama's mother was Jewish; so, by Jewish law, this makes him Jewish as well.
