Birth of a Nation, Israel at 69

Tweet   The other day, a friend asked me why so many people hate the Jews. I said: “We gave the world monotheism and morality. We insisted that there is right and wrong, good and evil. And HaShem made a covenant with His people that is eternal. The world has never forgiven us.

The Jews Are a Peculiar People

Tweet Whenever I have lunch with my close friend Carl (not his real name), a conservative Republican, a Jew, and a successful businessman, our conversation ranges over a wide spectrum of topics and ideas. Carl is one of the smartest people I know. He’s also a good man, quietly charitable and sincere, and possessed of […]

John Wayne Casts a Giant Shadow

Tweet John Wayne’s commitment to Conservative values cemented his support of Israel. Indeed, there was a time when even Hollywood liberals supported Israel publicly, and through generous charitable contributions.  Tragically, classic liberalism is dead, replaced by a postmodern Democrat party—progressivism—that is radically left and infused with the classic Jew-hatred of Marxist-Lenninism. In Scott Eyman’s compulsively […]

Jew-Hating US Church Goes Progressively Medieval

Tweet The Jew-hating agenda of Presbyterian Church USA is cloaked in liberal/progressive/leftist/Democrat sloganeering — in other words, Orwellian Newspeak. The PCUSA utilizes the fashionable squawk of social justice, but mixes it with the blood-soaked theology of supersessionism. The church’s published work, “Zionism Unsettled,” is a poisonous document that argues for delegitimizing Israel. The subtext of […]

Syrian Civil War Caused by Zionism And Napoleon

Tweet What’s a day, or an hour, in the Muslim world without a Jew-hating conspiracy theory to stoke the masses? The latest lunacy: Syrians slaughter Syrians, says Adnan Azzam, a French-Syrian writer, not because they are a bunch of fratricidal clans and tribes with competing visions of Islam, but because Jews and, er, Napoleon are […]

Union Depot: Yearning For Zion In A Hollywood Classic

Tweet The camera swoops majestically through an enormous train station picking out individuals in the crush of humanity: soldiers, sailors, hookers, pickpockets, cops, Pullman porters, immigrants in peasant garb. This exhilarating opening is a tour de force of vignettes with characters delivering rapid fire dialogue perfectly timed to the swirling, unfettered movement of the G-d […]

“Land of Promise,” 1924 Silent Film About Zionist Pioneers

Tweet When writing about movies, Seraphic Secret usually focuses on Hollywood. But this silent film, “Banim Bonim” Land of Promise, is a documentary/travelogue from 1924 that is fascinating. The second reel is missing, but it’s still 41 minutes long. Take a look, and then some comments. As with most documentaries, the film was carefully constructed […]

Stupid American Jews Getting Not-so-Stupid, or: How American Jews Learned to Start Worrying About Obama

Tweet We know: it’s crazy paranoid to assume that a man who was mentored for over 20-years by a rabid Jew-hater just might have a few, um, issues, with Jews and Israel. But hey, Seraphic Secret did not go to an Ivy League college, nor did we attend graduate school where common sense is, North […]

Israel Independence Day, This is Zionism

Tweet Tweet Supporters of Israel invariably complain that the Israeli government is seriously deficient in hasbarah, media relations. Seraphic Secret believes this is an unfortunate charge that betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of how images and messages are best created and delivered. The reason Hollywood is the epicenter of movies is because American films are produced […]
