Israel's president Isaac Herzog visits Hebron

The current Israeli president paid a Hanuka visit to Hebron and the Cave of Patriarchs, and was wise to do so, not letting left-wing objections to his visit deter him:
The historic ties of the Jewish people and the State of Israel to the biblical city of Hebron are beyond dispute, President Isaac Herzog said on Sunday, as he marked the first night of Hanukkah by lighting a candle in the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

“My brothers and sisters, today too, with all the complexities – and I am not ignoring these complexities for a moment – the historical affinity of the Jewish people to Hebron, to the Cave of the Patriarchs, to the heritage of our matriarchs and patriarchs, is not in doubt,” Herzog said. “Recognition of this attachment must be beyond all controversy.”

Palestinians and Israeli left-wing politicians and activists protested his decision to visit the city, which they do not recognize as having any connection to Jews despite the Cave being considered the resting place of the patriarchs and matriarchs.

Hamas threatened violence in the wake of Herzog’s visit to Cave.
Well he was wise not to cave to that any more than to the leftists in the Knesset. That's why he's certainly earning some credit and admiration for attending the ceremony at the Patriarchs Cave in Hebron, and proving above all that he can put the subject above politics, as it should be. Thank goodness sanity's prevailed here. A real Hanuka miracle indeed.
