Mona Liza — an Arab Christian and Israeli Soldier — Would Sacrifice Her Life for Israel

Tweet The Democrat party, via ObamaCare, is shredding the greatest health care system the world has ever known. In an interview with Bill O’Reilly, Obama revealed himself as a serial liar and immature kvetch who blames Fox News for his countless failures. Meanwhile, John Kerry, Obama’s secretary of state, whose primary talent is marrying immensely […]

Obama Plays Knock Out The Jew

Tweet For the past several months, roving bands of black thugs have been assaulting Jews by punching them in the face. It’s called Knock Out the Jew. It’s a game. Presumably, the moron who knocks out the most Jews is the winner. Most of the assaults have taken place in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, which is […]

“Like Dreamers” Yossi Klein Halevi’s Masterful Book About The Soul of Modern Israel

Tweet   There was a time when Seraphic Secret was afraid of Yossi Klein Halevi. Flashback: High School. The mid-sixties. Brooklyn Talmudical Academy. Seraphic Secret was a less than enthusiastic student who was forever cutting classes in order to go to the movies and acquire the education I really wanted. Yossi Klein Halevi was one […]

The Shadow Iranian Commander

Tweet Currently, the American media is focused on the partial Obama government shutdown, and Obamacare. Look, the government shuts down every weekend and the world does not come to an end. Obamacare is a disaster, and it will continue to degrade medical care in America—except for the elites who have exempted themselves from this infamous […]

The IDF Units Who Will Play Key Role In Future Iran Strike

Tweet The only positive outcome of Obama’s disastrous handling of the Syrian portfolio is a new and unshakable confirmation in Israel — as well as in Great Britain, Japan, Poland,  Honduras and Mexico — that Obama is a deeply unreliable ally. As Iran’s charm offensive moves forward, it has become clear that Obama is desperate for any […]

Syria, Poison Gas, Israel, America, and Awesome Obama Guppiness

Tweet The United States is in a difficult position. We understand that intervention in the Arab Muslim world is a thankless task that inevitably leads to further hatred of America and fixes absolutely nothing. Nothing can be fixed in the Arab Muslim world because the countries there have no sense of personal responsibility. The sectarian […]

A 21st Century Exodus from Egypt to Israel

Tweet Tonight begins the last two day of Passover in which the Jewish people celebrate their liberation from Egyptian slavery. The IDF recently published an amazing story about Dina Ovadia, an Egyptian Jew, whose narrative is a modern Passover story. This isn’t Cpl. Dina Ovadia’s first Passover in Israel. Slowly, slowly she seems to be […]

Jewish + Black = Miss Israel

Tweet One of the up sides of being a religious Zionist is having an excuse to post photos of beautiful Jewish women. From JTA Yityish Aynaw, a former Israeli army officer, became the first Ethiopian-Israeli to win the Miss Israel pageant.

Bombing the Syrian Reactor: The Untold Story

Tweet Commentary has just published a fascinating excerpt from Elliot Abrams’ new book, Tested by Zion: The Bush Administration and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, a memoir of his service at the National Security Council from 2001 to 2009. There are several valuable take-a-ways from this excerpt, but for Seraphic Secret, the most important is the author’s […]

Israel Faces Chemical Islam — The Screenplay

Tweet Wide Angle Shots: American liberal-progressives move to disarm law-abiding American citizens. Barack Obama’s vision of a degraded American military gains traction among the elites. America supports the Muslim Brotherhood, a proudly Jew-hating, America-hating, genocidal-yearning gang of Islamic theocrat fascists. Intertitle: Somebody has to take the lead in the fight against the rising tide of […]

Five Most Hardcore Female Combat Roles

Tweet It would be a great temptation to use the role of women in the IDF as a template for America’s armed forces — which have been ordered to integrate women into combat units. I think the comparison has notable weaknesses. Israel is a tiny country, the size of New Jersey, with a tiny population. […]

Girls With Guns

Tweet In the wake of the atrocity last week at Sandy Hook elementary school, we are, once again, beng lectured by statist utopians that the problem is guns, that America is steeped in a culture of violence, that free citizens need to hand over more control to government agencies. The truths are simple and stark: […]

The Drones Done Did It

Tweet Seraphic Secret has just returned from a four-day trip to Israel, where we attended our niece Ariella’s wedding. We then spent a lovely and peaceful Shabbat with beloved cousins in Mitzpe Netofa, a yishuv in the upper Galilee. We are beyond jet-lagged. In fact, semi-comatose. But before collapsing in a cranky heap, we’d like […]

Operation Pillar of Defense, Day Seven: Hey, Maybe the Ethnic Cleansing of Jews from Gaza Wasn’t Such a Bright Idea

Tweet A few days ago, Seraphic Secret recalled a conversation about Gaza with an American-Israeli leftist who supported the expulsion, all in the name of rainbows and unicorns. Of course, it was not only the left who advocated expelling 8,000 Jews from Gaza in a gesture of land for peace. There were those on the […]

Operation Pillar of Defense: Massacre in the City of Angels

Tweet Update: There are Arab Muslim protests/riots in Egypt, and Judea and Samaria over, ahem, “Palestinian blood.” Let’s see, so far there have been maybe 8 casualties in Gaza. How many were civilians and how many were terrorists is not clear. But over 30,000 people, men, women and children have been murdered in Syria — […]

Operation Amud Anan AKA Pillar of Defense

Tweet Israel’s current operation against the Islamic terrorists in Gaza — Hamas and affiliates, supported and financed by Iran — has been translated into English as “Operation Pillar of Defense.” This is a poetic translation which fails to convey the true meaning and purpose of Israel’s military operation. The original Hebrew is, עמוד ענן, “Amud […]

Obama Proposes Secret Deal With Iran

Tweet   The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reports that the Obama Administration has sent a secret message to Iran through two European nations that the United States will not back or support an Israeli strike on Iran as long as Iran refrains from attacking U.S. interests in the Persian Gulf. In short, Obama is trying to […]

Egypt: And Now It Begins

Tweet The mainstream media invented a feel-good narrative called The Arab Spring. In this soft-focus tale, a multitude of young, freedom-loving tweeters, fed up with the fossilized Arab regimes, were bravely ushering in Jeffersonian democracy. Seraphic Secret, along with other bloggers and writers who actually understand the Middle East, warned that the aspiring Arab Muslim […]
