New Comment System in Place

Robert asked me to inform the readers of Seraphic Secret that we scrapped the Intense Debate comment system because it was too complex and was causing too much confusion.

Jews Commit All Rapes in Norway

This story makes me ashamed to be Jewish. Really, it’s time to weep. Police statistics reveal that in 2010 every rape in Norway was committed by a Jew. No wonder anti-Semitism is epidemic in Norway. I get it. I really do — Wait a minute… New information coming in from my confidential source in Norway… […]

Ship of Irish Fools

An excellent article by Ruth Dudley Edwards, an Irish historian, novelist, journalist and broadcaster, on the Gaza-bound flotilla of fools. She correctly notes that this movement is motivated not by humanitarian concerns but a pathological hatred of Jews. It was the Fifties and I was about seven when I pointed to the photograph of Hitler […]

Haunted Hollywood

In Seraphic Secret’s move to WordPress last week, this post was, for a while, lost in cyberspace. Due to the kindness and tech know-how of our faithful reader Alter Ben-Zion, we have been able to snatch this blog out of its spectral prison. Alter also sent all the comments and they are included. In 1925, […]

Girl With Green Eyes: 47 Years Later

Tweet Turner Classic Movies allows yours truly to catch up on movies never seen and movies viewed so long ago that memory has left muddled, imprecise impressions. In 1964, age 14, I shlepped from Brooklyn into Manhattan to see the British movie Girl With Green Eyes. Those were the days when I actually took movie […]

People Magazine’s Fashionable Anti-Semitism

Huma Abedin Weiner with BFF Hillary Clinton. Tweet Last week’s issue of People magazine published a typically squishy article on Weinergate that focused on Weiner’s Muslim wife Huma Abedin.

Economic Smackdown: Paul Ryan vs. Barack Obama

Hey, did you know that there’s a statue of Brigitte Bardot in Buzios, Brazil? And what does this have to do with economic theory? It’s just that yesterday Karen and I took a walk in Beverly Hills and we were totally grossed out by a hunk of public sculpture in a bank plaza on Wilshire […]

Elvis Meets Bardot

    Tweet Last night night I dreamed about Elvis Presley. I don’t remember the dream except that it’s logic went something like this: I’m a kid in Brooklyn, cutting Yeshiva, going to the movies in Manhattan—which looks suspiciously like Beverly Hills—and I’m sitting in a theater watching an Elvis movie that does not exist. […]

Israel: Petro Power

  Tweet Islamic jihad is based on Koranic ideology, a poisonous brew of theological Jew-hatred and global imperialism. The ultimate goal of jihad is to kill every Jew and Christian on the face of the earth and establish a world-wide 7th century caliphate oppressing non-Muslims as dhimmis and enslaving Muslim women as well, Muslim women.

Gimmee Shelter

Arriving in Los Angeles a few weeks ago for the holiday of Passover, Maayan Ariel schlepped her trusty $13.00 Dora the Explorer backpack. At the luggage carousel Maayan stood next to a woman who was schlepping a $6,000 Birkin Bag by Hermes. Great image and a vivid illustration of how a free market caters to […]
