So we’ve been wandering around in and about Israel for 5,775 years now and you’d think that in all time we’d have discovered one little oil gusher at least once. I mean would we be making such a big deal on Chanukah about our oil lasting for eight days if we had, say, a few hundred billion barrels tucked away? I doubt it. Instead we have to settle for a land of milk and honey. Just try to sell either one of those for $120 a barrel and see how far you’d get. So what we have here — with a menorah made out of oil wells — is a little poetic justice. Even though it’s only happening in our imagination.
