Nine Christmas trees were taken away from Seattle's airport on Saturday morning after a local Chabad Rabbi requested the airport place a hanukkia next to the trees, Army Radio reported early Monday morning. The incident occurred in the early hours of the morning, when passenger presence in the airport was minimal. "We decided to get rid of the trees so as not to insult anyone, we try to take everyone into consideration," said the airport's spokesman.
