“I am one Jew who is all for the kind of spirit and strength of character that gets expressed at this time of year by wishing each other ‘Merry Christmas’. I’ll certainly take it over Allah HuAkbar. Give me ‘Peace on Earth’ and ‘Good Will Toward Men’ over ‘Eternal Jihad’ and ‘Dhimmi Status for Infidels’ anytime.
“If we do anything this holiday season, we need to loosen up and get a perspective on this ‘Merry Christmas’ thing. It is not the people who say ‘Merry Christmas’ and mean it that we need to be discouraging in America at this time. It is the people who find something wrong and suspect in the energy, enthusiasm and good-will that animates that ‘Merry Christmas’ that we need to discourage.”
