It seem that there's a dash missing.

http://docs.python.org/dev/library/codecs.html#standard-encodings

>>> u'Sorry, this in here makes no sense'.encode('windows1256')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
LookupError: unknown encoding: windows1256

On the other hand windows-1256 works.
