Friday Photos: Islam Denial Edition

A Jewish man walks the streets of Jerusalem, 1920s.

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 (h/t Bookworm Room for the phrase) Islam Denial?

Seraphic Secret thinks it’s self-evident. It is imperative to deny that Jews are specifically targeted for death by transnational IslamoNazis. Because then Obama gets to make a hollow deal that will leave genocidal-yearning Iran as a threshold nuclear state.

This is foreign policy as crafted by the Jeremiah Wright’s of Obama’s world.

Make no  mistake about it, the Islam Denial that infects Obama and the chattering classes of Europe is a death sentence for the West.

There is no country on the face of the earth that is dominated by Islam — radical or otherwise — that is a decent and functional society. All Islamic lands are oppressive tyrannies, swamps of intolerance where minority religions are persecuted, where women are murdered for so-called crimes of honor, where homosexuals are cruelly persecuted, and where history comes to die.

On that happy note, a few photos to brighten your weekend.

Silent star Mae Murray b. Marie Adrienne Koenig (1885 - 1965)  with her Dusenberg, 1925. Murray's best role was in Erich von Stroheim's “The Wedding March,” 1925, opposite John Gilbert. Sadly, Murray was bi-polar and in her later years wandered the streets of New York telling astonished passerbys that she used to be a great star.

Which puts her in the exclusive Elizabeth Taylor multiple matrimonial club.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    In a similar vein to Dear Leader’s verbal gymnastics, here’s a bit of insanity from the Israeli left – an article on ‘The Fallacy of Rising Anti-Semitism”. The ridiculousness speaks for itself:

    Given who birthday we celebrate today (or should), I thought I would send along his famous letter.

    To the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island
    [Newport, R.I., 18 August 1790]
    Gentlemen.
    While I receive, with much satisfaction, your Address1 replete with expressions of affection and esteem; I rejoice in the opportunity of assuring you, that I shall always retain a grateful remembrance of the cordial welcome I experienced in my visit to Newport,2 from all classes of Citizens.
    The reflection on the days of difficulty and danger which are past is rendered the more sweet, from a consciousness that they are succeeded by days of uncommon prosperity and security. If we have wisdom to make the best use of the advantages with which we are now favored, we cannot fail, under the just administration of a good Government, to become a great and a happy people.
    The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people, that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.
    It would be inconsistent with the frankness of my character not to avow that I am pleased with your favorable opinion of my Administration, and fervent wishes for my felicity. May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and figtree, and there shall be none to make him afraid. May the father of all mercies scatter light and not darkness in our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and in his own due time and way everlastingly happy.
    Go: Washington

    This has been called the original basis for religious liberty in this country.

      Virtually all of thirteen colonies welcomed Jews prior to the Revolution. The largest populaiton of Jews was to be found in Charleston, SC. And it was in SC that the first Jew, Francis Salvador, fell fighting for his new country in the American Revolution.

      Religious liberty was a touchstone of most of the colonies. That is not surprising since near 80% of the people in the colonies belonged to religions that were under legal disability in their home countries. John Locke, the philospher whose Enlightenment ideas animated the American Revolution, wrote an entire treatise on religious toleration and drafted a Constitution for South Carolina that included absolute religious toleration. Washington’s letter did not mark a shift in religious toleration in Revolutionary times, it was a summary.

      Funny to think now, but in truth there was only a single religion that was not welcome in the Thirteen colonies. Catholicism. The hatred that the dissenting religionists felt for the Catholics is impossible for most to imagine today. When Washington and the revolutonaries spoke of religious toleration, they were not speaking of the Catholics. That would take another forty or fifty years after the Revolution before religous toleration would spread to Catholicism.

    There is much Leftism in today’s American “progressivism,” but there is also much thinking which could better be designated as Fascist. There is the obsession with race/ethnicity…and there is little interest in actual government ownership of and responsibility for businesses, but rather a willingness to leave them in nominally private hands as long as they do what they are told.

      You’re right, but note that socialism and fascism are essentially identical. Both aim th replace human liberty by the omnipotent state. The rhetoric may be different, and a few minor details may change, but the fundamentals match.
      There are good reasons why Stalin made a treaty with Hitler: their politics were essentially the same.

    Whoa, my hero Satchel Paige! The great Dizzy Dean said “People said that I threw so hard it was like trying to hit golf balls. Let me tell you, maybe so, but Satchel threw aspirin pills every time!”.

    I don’t think Obama is motivated by Jew Hatred per-se. I think his fundamental inability to say to name Islam as the perpetrator of terrorism and war has far more to do with the fact that he is a hard leftie.

    I never understood the left until I read the works of Marx and Lennin. Few have on this side of the pond. And while most on this side of the pond would sneer at being linked with Max and Lennin, the reality is that it fully explains how and why the left acts.

    All of that said, . . . The anti-religious left is implacably wants to excise the Judeo Christian religions from the foundations of our society. Islam has similar goals, and thus is a natural ally of Obama and he does not want to lost that.

    Two, the left sees the world through an exclusively socio-economic prism. Thus, the real reason Muslims are revolting must be jobs, GDP, etc. Even if a leftie credits the Muslims terrorists as meaning what they say, the leftie ultimately believes that, if you toss the Muzzie enough money, they’ll retire to their tents in sloth. There are countless examples of this in the Obama administration. Indeed, in 2007, Obama said he would court Iran by holding out the possibility of membership on one of the economic boards — apparently unaware that Iran had already rejected that.

    The left cannot truly understand Iran because they are seeing them through ideological blinders. Their ideology requires them to see Iran as a legitimate victim of Western repression and a rational actor.

    In any event, we are in complete agreement on the end result. The actions of the left, whether predicated on Jew hatred or left wing ideological purity, are a death sentence for the West.
