The Jewish Story is Under Assault

Tweet Those who read this blog on a regular basis know that Yossi Klein Halevi and I went to yeshiva high school together. At the time, Yossi was active in Rabbi Meir Kahane’s Jewish Defense League. Yours truly was sort of terrified of the JDL guys who used to hang out by the lockers and […]

Where Does All That Aid for Palestinians Go?

Tweet Israel’s Deputy foreign minister, Tipi Hotovely, has written an important piece in today’s WSJ: One often-cited key to peace between Israel and the Palestinians is economic development. To that end, there seems to be broad agreement about the importance of extending development aid to help the Palestinians build the physical and social infrastructure that […]

Chanukah 2015, The Same Bloody Ground

Tweet A Chanukah 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, returned to us the inheritance of our fathers.” […]

The Fruits of Temple Appeasement

Tweet The current spilling of Jewish blood by pious Muslims is, of course, incited by the PA, Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic State, etc., through the false claim that Israel is set on changing the status quo on the Temple Mount. Of course, Israel is doing no such thing. But think about it for a moment. Muslims […]

Palestine: The Psychotic Stage

Tweet Bret Stephens at the WSJ dares to call the so-called Palestinians evil. If you’ve been following the news from Israel, you might have the impression that “violence” is killing a lot of people. As in this headline: “Palestinian Killed As Violence Continues.” Or this first paragraph: “Violence and bloodshed radiating outward from flash points […]

Sukkot, The Past is Never Past

Larry Elder Lecture Huge Success

Tweet Yesterday, Sunday June 7, was the Twelfth Annual Ariel Avrech memorial Lecture. Larry Elder, the Sage of L.A., spoke about the New Black Anti-Smitism. But Larry’s talk was far more personal than standard politics. Larry spoke lovingly of the Jewish State, a trip he took to Israel in his youth, and a rather unique, […]

Jerusalem: 4000 Years of Jewish History

Tweet   Yesterday was Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, in which the unification of the city in 1967 is celebrated. Take a look at the history of  Jerusalem in this brief video. Empires rise and fall but the Jewish people continue to return to the promised land, and to their holy city.

Friday Photos: The No Men Edition

Tweet In Pierke Avot (Ethic of the Fathers) Hillel teaches: “In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.” Bibi Netanyahu won a resounding victory over the Israeli left and Barack Obama by paying heed to the great sage Hillel’s teaching. Bibi is a man in a world that is awash in […]

Friday Photos: Islam Denial Edition

Tweet The verbal gymnastics of the Obama administration have reached a level of weirdness that defies common sense. The targeted murder of Jews has been redefined as a “random act.” It is easy to make fun of Obama’s abuse of language, but really, we must ask ourselves, what is the political purpose of his stubborn […]

Friday Photos: Leviticus 25:10 Edition

Tweet Every week brings news that is at once shocking, and yet painfully familiar as Islamist barbarians rampage across the globe inflicting untold tortures and outrages. And yet, at the same time, Obama and the lapdog media insist that Islam is being misunderstood. You see, Islamist monsters are really “extremist zealots.” Question: Why do millions […]

Friday Photos: The High Horse Edition

Tweet At the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday, Barack Obama warned that we should not “get on our high horse” over the immolation of Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot 1st Lt. Muadh al-Kasasbeh because Christians used to burn people too. It shocking and reprehensible that two days after Islamic terrorists burn a man alive, the President of the […]

The Old-New Chanukah War 2014

Tweet On December 5, 2012, The New York Times filed this story: Cheering U.N. Palestine Vote, Synagogue Tests Its Members. Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, a large synagogue on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is known for its charismatic rabbis, its energetic and highly musical worship, and its liberal stances on social causes. But on Friday, […]

Netanyahu Calls Obama’s View of Jerusalem ‘Un-american’

Tweet   Seraphic Secret would like to remind the 74% of American Jews who voted for Obama that he spent over 20 years as a faithful member of Jeremiah Wright’s openly Jew-hating, America-bashing (so-called) church. Thus, Obama’s hostility and racism towards the Jewish state was nothing if not predictable.

Joan Winters: Restored to Memory at Last

Tweet by Rahel Jaskow It seemed like such a simple request: to photograph a grave in a nearby cemetery. “She is buried in the American Cemetery in Jerusalem,” Robert Avrech wrote in July 2011 at the end of his post about Joan Winters, an American actress who was found murdered at the foot of the Mount of Olives […]
