Ignoring Rule #1 of History

When asked what he proposed to do about the cold war with the Soviet Union, Ronald Reagan famously replied: “We win, they lose.” Of course, the chattering classes mocked Reagan as a simple-minded war monger. The postmodern Democrat party is quite good when fighting Republicans, their true enemy. But when it comes to those who […]

UN Names Democratic Israel as World’s #1 Human Rights Violator

  The UN is a cesspool of leftist Jew-haters. One of the cornerstones of Obama’s foreign policy is to engage with the UN on world affairs so that America does not act unilaterally. In short, Obama and the Democrat Party have legitimized the Jew-hatred and blood libels that lie at the heart of the UN. […]

Purim: The Deeply Anti-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Today is the holiday of Purim. And it is no accident that Benjamin Netanyahu referenced Purim when delivering a powerful address to the U.S. Senate in an unsuccessful bid to curb Obama’s legitimization of a nuclear Iran. Purim is an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but agnonizingly familiar story: A Jew-hater named Haman hatches a […]

Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech, Second Yahrzeit

My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014, which the Jewish calendar translates into the 13th of Adar. Thus, tonight — Jewish holidays begin in the evening, after sundown — is the second Yahrzeit, memorial, without my father’s physical presence in this world. My father was 94 years old. He is […]

Hillary Clinton at AIPAC, It’s Behavior, Stupid

Whenever I discuss Judaism, I frequently define the corpus of Jewish ritual, law and thought as a behaviorist religion. Normative Orthodox Judaism does not involve itself in theological or philosophical discussions. When we learn Torah (the Written Law) and Talmud (the Oral Law), G-d is a given. The 613 mitzvot — prescriptive commandments and prohibitions […]

Government: Is It Ever Big Enough?

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEGURItSrAo[/youtube] Can the government ever be too big? How much spending is enough spending? And if there can be too much spending, where is that point? William Voegeli, Senior Editor of the Claremont Review of Books, explores these complex questions and offers some clear answers.

Dangerous Illusions About Iran

In the pages of the Council on Foreign Relations, Elliott Abrams analyzes the repercussions of Obama’s deal — capitulation, appeasement, surrender — with the theocrat fascist Jew-haters of Iran. Abrams argues that the two pillars of the agreement are proving delusional. And in order to deflect the inconvenient facts, Obama, his supporters, and the ever reliable Democrat […]

PalNazis Laughing Their Heads Off at Biden

by Khaled Abu Toameh U.S. Vice President Joe Biden visited Ramallah last week, and Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas and his top officials are laughing their heads off. Why not laugh? Biden arrived in the region hoping to persuade the Palestinian leaders to issue a “condemnation” of the reign of terror, which they continue to […]

Book Review: For the Love of Wine

As most of my readers know, Seraphic Secret does not drink. Not wine, nor any type of liquor. That’s because alcohol, even the smallest amount, is a sure-fire trigger for a migraine. So, you ask, why is Seraphic Secret reviewing a book dedicated to wine? Well, it’s simple, the author of this elegant and fascinating volume, […]
