Just what we didn't need

Oh, wonderful. It seems that something's been taken out of context in Seattle, when a rabbi only asked if Hanuka menorahs could be added alongside Christmas trees at the Sea-Tac airport; he did not ask that the trees be removed. As this editorial by Robert Jacobs in the Seattle Times says:
Many residents of this community would like to put the Sea-Tac Airport Christmas-tree episode behind us. Unfortunately, for the Jewish community, a bad taste lingers. It is disconcerting — even a bit frightening — to see how much anti-Semitism lurked just below the surface in our community. Consider how quickly it came bubbling up, even though the Jewish community never asked for the Christmas trees to be removed from the airport.

[...]

How could people believe that a rabbi would find Christmas trees offensive when he asked to have a menorah placed with the trees? What was it about a request for a menorah to be displayed that led to such hate?
Following this, it seems that quite a few moonbats have exploited this for anti-Jewish attacks. Given that this is such a leftist city we're talking about here, it's all the more dismaying and unfortunate that this has happened, especially considering what IsraelInsider notes.

Mark Steyn talks about it this week in the Chicago Sun-Times. It's a real shame that this had to happen, because considering where Iran's going, we certainly don't need any more potential antisemitism flaring up.
