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 Eight: Hey, Let’s Talk About That Massacre in Gaza

Tweet A few years ago, I was approached by an independent producer who wanted to hire me to write a script. In truth, the producer was an amateur, someone with no credits. But he had lots of enthusiasm and claimed to have money in place to develop a script. I sat down for lunch with […]

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.
