Moldova: Christians protest against Hanukkah celebration

Orthodox Christians protested against a Jewish ceremony marking the end of Hanukkah in Chisinau (Kishinev).  The protesters held signs saying among other things: "Menorah - a symbol of Jewish occupation" and "We don't want Hanukkah, we have Orthodoxy".  Police were present at the scene but did not prevent the protest.

On Moldovan TV the protesters said that Hanukkah and a lit Hanukkah menorah were a provocation in an Orthodox country.  Hanukkah is a symbol of Jewish victory over non-Jews and it should not be celebrated in an Orthodox country.
