The Coming Religious Purges

  Now that SCOTUS has endorsed same-sex marriage as a human right and enshrined it as federal law, those individuals and communities of traditional faith will see their religious freedom curtailed in a series of multi-pronged assaults. It is vital to understand that the left is not really interested in marriage equality; they are playing […]

Ally by Michael B. Oren, Ambassador to Chelm

New Jersey born historian Michael B. Oren was a Zionist inspired-teenager, who, in 1970, when shaking hands with the Israeli Ambassador Yitzchak Rabin, promised himself that someday he would be Israel’s ambassador to the United States. Like a great many American dreamers, Oren’s ambition was realized — sort of. Oren was Israel’s ambassador to the […]

How I Married Karen Thirty-Eight Years Ago Today

Today is our 38th wedding anniversary. But as readers of Seraphic Secret know, I have been helplessly, hopelessly in love with Karen since fourth grade when I first saw her on the playground of our elementary school, Yeshiva of Flatbush. Without Karen, I never would have accomplished very much in life. It was her faith […]

We Are the TransWorld

Postmodern democrats live alongside unicorns and rainbows. On a genetic level, Bruce Jenner is male. This should be beyond dispute, especially for democrat/liberals/progressives, (what are they calling themselves this week?) whose ideology boasts of its boundless respect for science, as opposed to knuckle-dragging conservatives who have the chutzpah to challenge politically rigged science. But democrats […]

How Obama Abandoned Israel

Seraphic Secret received a review copy of Ally, Michael B. Oren’s latest book. We have been reading it in great gulps and a full review will follow.

Unmasking the BDS Movement Ireland

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iZjuiKZ2ho[/youtube]   This is a brilliant look at the BDS movement in Ireland, which is, in reality, Jew-hatred repackaged.

New John Wayne Museum

Rising at 4 to take my daily three mile walk, I spend a fair amount of time reviewing in my head current events, and deciding what to blog about. Iran’s march to becoming a nuclear power is frequently at the top of my list. Iran is the world’s greatest exporter of Islamic terrorism. They have […]

South Carolina Passes Anti-BDS Bill

It is and has been a favored tactic of Jew-haters through the ages: using the law to legitimize hatred and persecution of Jews and Judaism. This lawfare always precedes the physical elimination of the Jewish people either through exile, or genocide. Thus, the BDS movement against Israel, the Jewish state, is nothing new. In the […]

Larry Elder Lecture Huge Success

Yesterday, Sunday June 7, was the Twelfth Annual Ariel Avrech memorial Lecture. Larry Elder, the Sage of L.A., spoke about the New Black Anti-Smitism. But Larry’s talk was far more personal than standard politics. Larry spoke lovingly of the Jewish State, a trip he took to Israel in his youth, and a rather unique, if […]

Friday Photos: The Image is the Message

The other day I was talking with an aspiring screenwriter about great film actors. I mentioned Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Cary Grant, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and Marilyn Monroe. The aspiring screenwriter, a young woman, told me that she’d heard of them, seen a lot of their photos on the internet, […]

Palestinian Authority Teaches Jew-Hatred to Children

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reF8utB75tA[/youtube]   The Palestinian Authority continues to destroy any chance for lasting peace by teaching children that Palestinians and Muslims are in conflict with Jews. The PA teaches that Jews have an intrinsically evil nature and that this conflict is part of Islam.

The Cash Donations Hillary Simply Has No Answer For

Believe it or not, I am linking to an article in Salon. Among all the rivers of money that have flowed to the Clinton family, one seems to raise the biggest national security questions of all: the stream of cash that came from 20 foreign governments who relied on weapons export approvals from Hillary Clinton’s […]
