Saying "Happy Hanukkah" is an assault upon Christmas
... apparently :shrug:

Muslim helps Jews attacked on New York subway

"Friday's altercation on the Q train began when somebody yelled out "Merry Christmas," to which rider Walter Adler responded, "Happy Hanukkah," said Toba Hellerstein.

"Almost immediately, you see the look in this guy's face like I've called his mother something," Adler told CNN affiliate WABC.

<...>

One member of the group allegedly yelled, "Oh, Hanukkah. That's the day that the Jews killed Jesus," she said."

1. "Oh, Hanukkah. That's the day that the Jews killed Jesus."
You can tell they're very committed to their faith. For instance, they know that Good Friday, despite common belief, is actually a week in december. Jesus was a tough man to take down.

3. It was an epic battle
The siege lasted months before Jesus got bored let them win. The Christians rode to battle on dinosaurs (that's why they went extinct, don't you know :P).
