Berniacs Get Burned by Republican Tax Plan

Would Progressives support the Republican tax bill if they thought it was really a Bernie Sanders proposal? That’s the question filmmaker Ami Horowitz asks in his latest man-on-the-street style interview short. This time he queries passersby in New York’s East Village, a “liberal Mecca,” to see how uninformed and biased people are about the GOP […]

Flashback: When Hollywood Celebrated Christmas

There was a time when Hollywood openly and joyously celebrated Christmas. Now, among the Hollywood elite, the greeting I hear is “Happy Holidays.” Look, we at Seraphic Secret are Orthodox Jews. This is not our holiday. But we want our Christian friends to celebrate Christmas. The politically correct Happy Holidays shtick is another nail in […]

Why the International Community Should Follow Trump’s Lead on Jerusalem

President Trump has fulfilled a promise that, frankly, I did not believe he would keep. But by recognizing Israel’s capital as Israel’s capital he has proven himself a friend of Israel and the Jewish people in a manner that is unique among American presidents.

Chanukah 2017: The Battle of the Maccabees Continues

Today is the first day of Chanukah. And here is a timeless message from Simon the Maccabee: “We have not taken a foreign land, nor did we take the property of others — for this is the inheritance of our fathers, which was for some time unjustly possessed by our enemies. But we, having the opportunity, […]

Fire Bombing Jewish Children In Sweden

Like a California fire, Islamism is devouring Europe at a rapid and unchecked pace. French Jews are leaving by the hundreds, soon to be thousands. When walking the streets of Jerusalem I hear more and more French speakers. Jews of England also see the writing on the wall. And the Jews of Sweden, just 18,000, […]

Jerusalem the Eternal Undivided Capital of the Jewish State

There is a great deal of hand wringing now that President Trump is officially recognizing reality: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, and that the U.S. embassy will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Jew-hating Arabs warn that this recognition will cause violence. The gutless EU warns that this move will derail the so-called peace […]

An Arab Muslim in the Israeli Army
