The following is the text of the letter that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent to US President Barack Obama:
Dear President Obama,
I was shocked and horrified by today’s savage massacre of innocent children and adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. We in Israel have experienced such cruel acts of slaughter and we know the shock and agony they bring. I want to express my profound grief, and that of all the people in Israel, to the families that lost their loved ones. May you and the American people find the strength to overcome this unspeakable tragedy.
With my deepest condolences,
Prime Minister of Israel
And from the People’s Republic of China:
The state news agency in China, the official voice of the government, has called for the United States to quickly adopt stricter gun controls in the aftermath of the shooting rampage in Connecticut that left 28 people dead, including 20 schoolchildren.
“Their blood and tears demand no delay for U.S. gun control,” said the news agency, Xinhua, which listed a series of shootings this year in the United States.
Surprise! The fascist Chinese are on board in the ongoing attempt to disarm America.
The Iranian Basij terrorists are also anxious to disarm American citizens.
And of course, oh-so-tolerant liberals call for the murder of NRA president and its members.
As Seraphic Secret has frequently pointed out: liberal progressives are basically fascists — only clad in more fashionable outfits.
Evil is real. Mental illness is real. A civilization that no longer assigns personal responsibility to the actions (good or evil) of the individual is a civilization in decline, for this is a sign of a cultural moral breakdown.
Victoria Soto protected her students and sacrificed her life in the process. She is a hero because she chose to do what she did. She took personal responsibility for her students, for their lives.
But too many refuse to assign personal responsibility to the killer.
Seraphic Secret will not write his name. His name, like Amalek, should be blotted from memory. Instead, personal responsibility is shifted from the killer to the gun, the bullets, the clip that holds the bullets.
This is madness, and useless, and counterproductive.
Only a man with a gun can stop another man with a gun. It’s that simple, that complicated.
