What perfect timing for Hanukkah,

see this translation of the Hanukkah song  

מעוז צור    Ma’oz tzur:

My refuge my rock of salvation! ‘Tis pleasant to sing to your praises.

Let our house of prayer be restored. And there we will offer You our thanks.

When You will have utterly silenced the loud-mouthed foe.

Then we will celebrate with song and psalm the altar’s dedication.

Perhaps not politically correct, but sums today up nicely.
