Seven California Boys Who Could Look Like Obama’s Son Arrested After Beating Teen For Being Hispanic

Let’s be clear: all the media attention on Trayvon Martin’s death has nothing to do with Trayvon Martin. It’s the method whereby the left brands Conservative America as institutionally racist. The ideology of the left is akin to a post-modern composer who pounds the same piano key over and over again until out of exhaustion, […]

Friday Fashion: Hollywood Hats for Passover

Passover is almost here. Cleaning, changing dishes, and buying Passover food takes up a huge amount of time and energy. Observant Jews also take the opportunity to purchase new clothing in honor of the holiday in which we celebrate our deliverance from Egyptian bondage. Orthodox women cover their heads in synagogue—a sign of modesty—thus new […]

Passover Wine According to Alice ‘Naked Wine’ Feiring

Passover is almost here. We’re scrubbing our houses, changing dishes and silverware, purchasing tons of  kosher for Passover food, shopping for new clothing, and many are wondering which wines to buy for the Passover seders in which we are commanded to drink four cups of wine. Medical Interpolation: Seraphic Secret does not drink wine, does […]

College Democrats Invite Farrakhan to Campus

Let’s see if I understand this correctly: Democrats who claim to champion intolerance of racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, gender inequality, etc., are perfectly okay with a racist Jew-hater. Indeed, not just passively okay with the man who has for decades referred to Judaism as “The Synagogue of Satan” and a “gutter religion” but a coalition […]

The Great Tawana Brawley Tango

You remember Tawana Brawley: that’s when Al Sharpton burst on the national scene claiming that Brawley, a black teenage girl, was raped and beaten by a group of white men, smeared with feces and then dumped in a garbage bag. It was all so ghastly, so very KKK, that decent people recoiled in horror and […]

Blacks Set White on Fire: “You get what you deserve, white boy.”

Let’s review: The New Black Panthers have issued a fatwa on the life of George Zimmerman, a man described by the NY Times as a “white Hispanic.” This new and novel racial classification, as Seraphic Secret noted yesterday, is a Nuremberg construct that encourages and justifies a power structure whereby chosen ethnic identities are demonized […]

Does Obama Imagine Bob and Nancy Strait as His Parents?

Friday Flickers: Mrs. Miniver

In 1942, MGM released Mrs. Miniver, starring Greer Garson and Walter Pigeon. The movie was a great boost to morale and helped strengthen America’s commitment to defeating the genocidal fascists of Germany and Japan. The film emphasizes chin-up devotion to duty: Mr. Miniver, an architect, sails to Dunkirk, Mrs. Miniver confronts a wounded German pilot, […]

Toulouse and Mumbai Where Jewish Souls Meet

The genius of the Jewish people is the accumulation of memory. The march of history is detailed and understood as our relationship with HaShem. We perpetuate history through tradition, law and mitzvot, rituals that guide the passages of our lives. Birth and death are sanctified. Death is the crisis of life. How do we cope with […]

Terror in Toulouse: Not Casting Against Type

  When this story first broke yesterday I assumed the killer was Muslim. I know, this marks me as a bigot. More enlightened citizens figured the killer as Mormon or Catholic. The really enlightened—American liberals—tagged the murderer as a member of the Tea Party. An Israeli Zaka volunteer stands next to the bodies of Monday’s […]

The Moral Depravity of the Baroness Catherine Ashton

Jewish children are massacred in Toulouse by a Jew-hating gunman. Civilized people are outraged, stunned by yet another example of the evil that stalks the earth. But Baroness Catherine Ashton the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission, compares the murdered French-Jewish children to children in Gaza.

Friday Flickers: Three Notable Films About Terrorism

Faye Dunaway once told me that to play a role she had to commit to the character with all her heart and soul. She needed, she explained, to love the character. In terms of performance this means the actor has to empathize and identify with the fictional character. The danger lies in a character who […]

Crap Idea From Israel

Improving the world one poop at a time. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhTHIsRDll0[/youtube]   AshPoopie, the brainchild of renowned Israeli biotech inventor Prof. Oded Shoseyov of the Hebrew University, is a pooper-scooper with a critical difference: After it gathers dog droppings, it turns them into odorless, sterile ash within seconds. All the dog-walker has to do is push a […]

Not Even the Dead Are Allowed to Rest In Peace

Roll the video of Muslims desecrating World War II graves in Benghazi Libya and then my comments. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2VmBI8avyc[/youtube] In yesterday’s post, Welcome to Moroland, Seraphic Secret pointed out that in 1902 Muslim warriors of the Moro Islands in the Philippines murdered a group of American soldiers because the Americans were unarmed and unsuspecting. The Moros’ […]

Welcome to Moroland

The 1898 Treaty of Paris formally ended the Spanish-American War. By its terms America acquired the Philippines, and the Moros Islanders, Muslim tribes who developed in isolation from the rest of Catholic Philippine society on the southern islands of Mindanao, Palawan,  and Basilan. As James R. Arnold writes in the excellent The Moro War: How America […]

Being Irish Means Hating Israel

Irish filmmaker Nicky Larkin once hated Israel. As a standard Irish leftist—an intellectually depraved drone—he felt duty bound to revile the Jewish State and adore the Palestinians. But then Larkin went to Israel to make an anti-Israeli movie and the scales gradually fell from his eyes. I used to hate Israel. I used to think […]

Friday Fashion: The Past is the Present

The great Hollywood costume designer Orry-Kelly with Ann Sheridan. Seraphic Secret likes to check out the latest fashions, scouting for beautiful but modest clothing. We don’t believe that women have to reveal acres of flesh in order to appear and feel attractive. In fact, the opposite. The more chaste the surface, the more mystery and […]
