How To Kill An IslamoNazi

Meet Larry, my buddy from Bensonhurst. Okay, so it’s not Larry. For reasons of security his identity cannot be compromised. But take my word for it, Larry looks exactly like Gary Cooper in High Noon. Or not.

The Obama administration has blamed the Orlando massacre on guns. Of course, the slaughter was engineered and committed by an IslamoNazi who repeatedly proclaimed his allegiance to ISIS.

In 2009, during a trip to Israel, I ran into an old friend from Brooklyn who, armed with a Glock, saved scores of innocent Jews by bravely confronting an IslamoNazi. 

This article originally appeared in Breitbart. I am republishing it now because the Democrats have become enablers of jihad by shifting focus from an evil ideology to chunks of inanimate steel.

This true story demonstrates why a free people must remain armed.

How Anti-Semitism Became Respectable Again

palestinian-rally-01

A fine article by David P. Goldman.

The world was anti-Semitic in 1944, when Ben Hecht wrote A Guide for the BedevilledThe majority of educated, civilized, and rational people believed that the Jews in some fashion had brought their own problems upon themselves. Hecht began fighting anti-Semitism after an unsettling exchange with a New York hostess, who explained to him that Jews had to acknowledge their own responsibility in the matter of their persecution. This polite Gentile lady explained:

Peace and Love and their Murderous Consequences

the-meaning-of-peace-is-the-absence-of-opposition-to-socialism-karl-marx

Among the pile of books on my night table, there are always a few volumes about war.

It should be obvious to any clear-thinking person that war is the final arbiter of all great conflicts. Those who speak of negotiated peace speak of fiction.

The great world wars have made this world what it is, and there are numerous lessons to be learned militarily in terms of the present war with radical Islam. Thus I draw your attention to two very fine books: The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman and A World at Arms by Gerhard L. Weinberg.

Democrats Believe Orlando Massacre is America’s Fault

 

nogunsallowed

The anti-gun fervor that grips Obama and the Democrat party serves dual political strategies.

The first is to make believe that IslamoNazi ideology does not exist. The Obama regime fantasizes that radical Islam is, um, workplace violence, or violent extremism — anything other than what it obviously is, and what the terrorists tells us it is.

Which is why the Obama DOJ are censoring—rewriting history—20 minutes of the phone calls made by the Orlando terrorist. Remember, every impulse of postmodern progressives is totalitarian.

Why Islam is Violent

Muslim members of the Waffen-SS 13th division at prayer during their training in Germany, 1943

Daniel Greenfield deconstructs Islamic ideology and concludes that Islamic civilization is unstable and unsustainable.

Islamic violence is nearly impossible to deny. But why is Islam violent? The usual answer is to point to Koranic verses calling for the conquest and subjugation of non-Muslims. That certainly covers the theological basis for Islamic violence. But it fails to explain why Muslims continue to practice it. Even against each other. Violence has become the defining form of Islamic exceptionalism.

How I Married Karen 39 Years Ago Today

My bride Karen, June19, 1977.

My bride, Karen, June 19, 1977

Today is our 39th 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 much in life. It was her faith that propelled me to become a successful Hollywood screenwriter. And of course, it has always been Karen’s uncommon common sense that has turned me from an irresponsible young dreamer into a mature man who proudly shoulders the complex burdens of life.

On life in Hollywood during the silent era: “The lifestyle was very bizarre and wild. I remember thinking nothing of having liquor all around. We all learned to smoke. No one told us it was bad for us. We had parties that would last from morning through night and then we’d go on to another house and end up in a house with somebody we didn’t even know. Yet, in a way, it was an innocent time.” —Madge Bellamy

Jew Without a Gun

Because of the Orlando massacre, I am republishing my three-part series about the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys—frequently armed with heavy weapons—owned the streets.

It was a defining moment in my life.

I’m reposting this series as a cautionary tale because when IslamoNazis go on murderous rampages the left invariably blames the actions of evil men on hunks of steel, piously calling for ever more gun laws. The ultimate aim, of course, is to disarm law-abiding American citizens through mass gun confiscations.

If the Democrat party’s vision is fulfilled all of America will become like those defenseless men and women in Pulse: Gays without guns.

 

Los Angeles burns, 1992.

Part One

Hollywood is Burning

Hollywood is on fire.

Karen and I lock every door in the house, shut tight the windows. We move through the house switching off all the lights.

Gazing from our bedroom window we watch orange flames lick at the darkness, pillars of black smoke climb into the sky. We can actually smell the acrid odor of burning rubber.

“Look how close they are,” says Karen.

“Just past La Cienega. Maybe eight blocks away.”

Karen gives me a long penetrating gaze:

“What do we do if they come here?”

My mind is racing away. The truth is we are defenseless. Unless I get crazy inventive like Dustin Hoffman in Straw Dogs.

“After this is all over,” I vow, “I’m going to buy a pistol.”

Karen says: “How about a shotgun?”

It’s IslamoNazi Ideology, Stupid

ISIS IslamoNazis murder a gay man by throwing him off a roof.

ISIS IslamoNazis murder a gay man by throwing him off a roof.

I heard about the Orando massacre in synagogue during the holiday of Shavuot. A friend said: “You watch, they’ll blame it on Israel.”

I said: “They’ll blame it on guns.”

Which is exactly what Obama did in his clueless statement about the slaughter. According to the religion of leftism, a gun walked into a gay club and opened fire. Apparently, the gun also yelled “Allahu Akhbar.”

The Story of Ruth Reenacted 100 Years Ago in Israel

Photo portrait of "Ruth the Moabitess" (Library of Congress)

Ruth, as enacted by a member of the American Colony in Israel 100 years ago.

The Jewish holiday of Shavuot,  Pentecost, begins this coming Saturday night.  The holiday has several traditional names: Shavuot, the festival of weeks, marking seven weeks after Passover; Chag HaKatzir, the festival of reaping grains, and Chag HaBikkurim, the festival of first fruits.  Shavuot, according to Jewish tradition, is the day the Children of Israel accepted the Torah at Mt. Sinai.  It is also believed to be the day of King David’s birth and death.

Rare Cache of Silver Coins Dating to the Hasmonean Period Discovered in Modi‘in

YouTube Preview Image

 

A hoard of silver coins dating to the Hasmonean period (126 BCE) was exposed in April in an archaeological excavation the Israel Antiquities Authority is currently conducting near Modi‘in, [Modi’in is located 22 miles southeast of Tel Aviv and 19 miles west of Jerusalem] with the participation of local youth. The excavation is being carried out prior to the construction of a new neighborhood, at the initiative of the Modi‘in-Maccabim-Re‘ut municipality. The treasure was hidden in a rock crevice, up against a wall of an impressive agricultural estate that was discovered during the excavation there.

Revenge of the Hollywood Millennials

Ann Hathaway clings to a father figure, Robert De Niro, in The Intern.

Anne Hathaway clings to father figure Robert De Niro, The Intern.

My friend Jake Novak writes exclusively for Seraphic Secret about an emerging trend in Hollywood: storylines that feature the crushing disappointment Millennials feel in their permissive Baby Boomer parents. 

We all know the conventional wisdom about Hollywood and morality. The TV and movie business is filled with libertines and anti-family radicals who want to destroy the civil society with subtle and not-so-subtle messages.

That impression is mostly correct.

However, as much as Hollywood wants to play on the left wing political and cultural team, it also wants to make money and produce superior movies and TV. For all its faults, the American entertainment industry is still the best source of screenwriting, special effects, and everything else that translates into movie magic.

And that’s why when something new is percolating in American culture, especially if it’s something affecting the key entertainment target demographic aged 18-35 years old, talented Hollywood writer/directors will notice and find a way to portray it onscreen… at least that’s what the generous optimist in me says.

The Wrong Side of History is Right

Obama-Bathroom-Gender

The Obama administration specializes in Orwellian Newspeak. As a true disciple of Communist agitator Saul Alinsky, Obama uses and abuses language to achieve social control over the American people.

As Orwell said, “He who controls language controls thought.”

Also an Alinskyite, Hillary Clinton exchanged letters with the Communist agitator, and in 1969, wrote an admiring 92-page senior thesis for Wellesley College titled “There Is Only the Fight, An Analysis of the Alinsky Model.”

Trump Rescues William Tecumseh Sherman

Augustus Saint-Gauden's statue of General Sherman in central Park after the restoration. The monument was installed in 1903.

Augustus Saint-Gauden’s statue of General Sherman in Central Park after the restoration. The monument was installed in 1903.

The New York Times just did a hatchet job about Trump and women which ended up making the NY Times look far worse than Trump. The Washington Post hired 20 extra reporters to investigate Trump — just as they did not do when Barack Obama was the Democrat nominee.

I recently came across a story the New York Times and Washington Post will never publish. It’s about about Donald Trump and the monument to William Tecumseh Sherman that is, if not hugely revealing of Trump’s character, at least worthy of attention and reflection.
