Obama's Seder - Just Plain Weird
Obama apparentlly had a traditional Seder.
I'm trying to imagine the absurdities in Obama's Seder.
הא לחמא עניא דאכלו אבהתנא בארעא דמצרים - did the president's ancestors eat poor man's bread in Egypt. I know Kenya's not far away, but come on...
עבדים היינו לפרעה במצרים - can the president really say that he was a slave to Par'oh in Egypt? It would be much more appropriate for all other US citizens to say עבדים אנחנו לפרעה באמירקא - especially after the healthcare bill passed.
The whole Dayenu, which the article says they sang doesn't make sense to him (הוציאנו ממצרים, נתן לנו את התורה, etc. don't apply to him.)
The article says:
We concluded with the cup for Elijah and singing 'Eliyahu Hanavi.'
Mr. Obama, do you even know what you're singing? "Bimheira Yavo Eileinu Im Mashiah Ben David." You are clueless as to what this really means. With Mashiah comes a Beit Hamikdash in a unified Jerusalem (something you despise), along with the downfall of Edom (of which you lead).
Your trying to show how pro-Jewish you are just shows how clueless you are.
