Stalked: Girl Without A Gun

Tweet I am republishing this true life story from 2007 for the same reason I republished Jew Without a Gun, my nightmarish report of being trapped with my family, unarmed and defenseless, in the 1992 L.A. Riots. This is another cautionary tale — not about the riots — but about one frightened and helpless young […]

Of Flame and Flames

Tweet By now you’ve probably heard about Flame, a sophisticated cyber attack aimed at Iran and other Islamist nets. Israel is playing coy, hinting that this super bug, like Stuxnet, just might be an Israeli operation. Seraphic Secret has no doubt that Flame is an Israeli cyber weapon developed by Unit 8200 and we welcome […]

Jews and Guns

Tweet   Okay, no Jews in this clip of William Shatner from the TV series Boston Legal. But because most liberal American Jews make believe the Second Amendment does not exist, or does not mean what it says, or believe that inanimate objects are evil, I frequently link the words Jew and Gun in the […]

Rise of the Killer Drone

Tweet Ask the man in the street who invented the pilotless drone and I’m pretty sure the answer will be U.S. engineers in the employ of the military. But of course, the drone was conceived and invented by men of vision, dreamers, entrepreneurs. Let’s face it, democratic governments are not—and should not be—investing in chosen […]

Philistine Gun Control and Jews

Tweet Now, not a smith was to be found in all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, “Lest the Hebrews make swords or spear.” And all Israel went down to the land of the Philistines to sharpen each man his plowshare and his colter and his axe and his mattock… And it was […]

The Perfect Shot

Tweet One of the most effective warriors on the battlefield is the sniper. A talented shooter can, at great distances, take out selected targets, sow paralyzing fear into the enemy, and in some cases, halt the advance of an entire front. Using advanced sniper systems such as the Barrett .50, modern snipers can make lethal […]

G-d, Guns, Guts and American Pick-Up Trucks

Tweet Embedded video from CNN Video This segment from CNN is a perfect illustration of the enormous gulf that exists between the sophisticates—code for Liberals—in this country, and the ordinary, common sense American citizen—code for Republicans. The issue is, naturally, guns. Or more precisely, the relevance of the Second Amendment, the Right to Bear Arms. […]

Jews, Guns and Torah

Tweet Jew with gun. An Israeli soldier of the elite Nahal Brigade, during the Second Lebanon War. Before our son Ariel Chaim ZT”L passed away, age twenty-two, in 2003, we spent a good deal of time discussing the Second Amendment, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Ariel was amazed that so many American Jews—overwhelmingly […]

And Now a Word About Missile Defense

Tweet Pershing I nuclear missile. Among Seraphic Secret’s faithful readers are scores of Americans from all branches of our armed services. One of our best friends is “Frank,” a Captain who deals with things that fly through the air and go BOOM when they land. Nuclear boom, that is. Frank is thoughtful, highly educated, and […]

“I’m Against Guns and Violence, Unfortunately Reality Has Intruded on My Delusional Paradise.”

Tweet “Thing is, he’s going to kill me.” “Have you gone to the police?” “Yes, of course I have.” “And what happened?” She shakes her head from side to side, wraps her arms protectively around her chest. “I got a restraining order against Ned, that’s my ex-boyfriend. But you know what good that is, don’t […]

Israel: The One Bomb State

Tweet Israel faces grave political and military challenges on all fronts. Terrorism via the Palestinians in Israel, Hamas in Gaza and a powerful Hizbullah in Lebanon are deeply troubling issues. But the greatest existential threat to Israel is Iran’s single-minded pursuit of nuclear weapon technology and Shiite hegemony over the Gulf region. To understand the […]

Israel: After Nuclear War

Tweet Iran is racing to build a nuclear capability with which to tip the balance of power in the Middle East in favor of the Shia minority—and of course to threaten Israel. Apologists for Persia learnedly point out that the tyrants in Tehran have not explicitly announced that they want to destroy Israel, “only eliminate […]

Did That Bullet Turn a Corner?

Tweet Oh man, here’s another reason for those Jew-hating British academics to boycott Israel. Amos Golan, an Israeli and former commando, has the chutzpah to invent a smart weapon that makes it easier to kill terrorists in close-quarter combat. Cornershot allows the soldier to see and shoot around corners without exposing himself to deadly return […]

The Best Defense

Tweet Recently, in the two main Jewish neighborhoods here in Los Angeles, there has been a plague of violent assaults against Orthodox Jews who walk alone, or in small groups, on Shabbat, the Sabbath, at night. The fact that Orthodox Jews do not carry money on Shabbat does not deter these criminals. They are quite […]

Jews with Guns

Tweet “We can fix all the houses up. We can plant trees. But if we cannot walk our streets securely, all our efforts are for naught,” [Rabbi] Greer said.
