Benghazi: No Justice

Democrats believe that the way to handle IslamoNazisis is to treat them like common criminals—or celebrate jihadists like Linda Sarsour as warriors for so-called social justice.

Hidden Hollywood: Seven Obscure Jewish Films

What’s a Jewish film? My definition is quite simple. It is a film that deals with Jewish subject matter. Thus, Woody Allen does not make Jewish films. In truth, Hollywood movies that do deal with Judaism are quite rare. Take a look at the subject headings in Netflix. There is no category for Jewish films. […]

My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014. This is the fourth Veteran’s Day without my father’s physical presence in this world.

10 Must See War Movies

There is no subject as well suited for the movies as war. In war there is conflict, love, and of course lots of action. Movies, said Hitchcock, are just like life, but with the boring parts cut out. Thus, movies about war delete the incredible boredom of most war-time experiences in favor of the hyper-drama […]

How to Respond to the Sutherland Springs Massacre

So far, the dead in the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs massacre number 26, with 20 wounded. This atrocity will, no doubt, devolve into a debate about gun control. Democrats will label the NRA evil, and the Republicans who support the Second Amendment as a bunch of knuckle draggers. Never mind that it seems […]

On 14 February 2001, an IslamoNazi from Gaza drove a bus into a group of Israeli soldiers who stood at a bus stop at the Azor junction, killing 8 people and injuring 26 others.
