Passover Hagaddah Conclusion “Next Year in Jerusalem” Deemed Unhelpful by Obama Administration (Satire)

(AP) — An unidentified Israeli official has confirmed that private discussions between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu included a strong request from the President that the upcoming Passover holiday not include the familiar refrain of “next year in Jerusalem”, citing the passage as provocative and unhelpful for future peace talks.
The Administration suggested replacing it with “next year in peace” or “next year in Israel”, but leaving the final wording up to both the Israelis and Palestinians.
Netanyahu is said to have balked at the request, indicating that the refrain dates back well before the UN Partition of 1947.  The Prime Minister reportedly attempted to diffuse the situation by noting that the declaration lacks any political significance, adding that most people living outside of Israel just “say the words without having a real desire to live anywhere in Jerusalem.” He further explained that, “at most, they would like to come for the Passover holiday, but only staying at one of the hotels located in western part of the city.”

  1. While I understand, and certainly others understand that the word SATIRE means it’s not true, you have not done anything but harm by posting this article which is now being picked up by Obama haters world wide as evidence that he is controlling Israel and her politics. This is the most irresponsible bit of writing I have seen in a long time. Shame on you. Below is only a couple of articles:

    • He has done more harm than good, in regards to Israel.
      That’s not to mention what he’d done to our country.
      I have every right to comment as I see it.
      And I see a man that is in that office, that has no right to be there. He’s a liar, and a cheat, and never should have that kind power to control our healthcare, our major companies, and our safety. He’s gone all over the world on a apology tour to our enemies. But the one friend that we have in the middle east, he has turned his back. God help us!
