Hanuka is a celebration of the religious freedom and national independence of the Jewish people. It is not surprising that Hitchens hates Hanuka, since he is an atheist who wants to suppress all religions and a pro-Palestinian who wants to destroy the state of Israel. Hanuka is a reminder that it is possible for the few to defeat the many and for Jewish light to triumph over totalitarian darkness such as that represented by the fraudulently-elected President of Iran.
