What’s Holding the Arab World Back

What’s holding the Arab world back? Why, by nearly every measure, are Muslim nations so far behind the West economically, culturally and scientifically? Bret Stephens, former columnist for the Wall Street Journal, explains. Donate today to PragerU: http://l.prageru.com/2eB2p0h

On Palestinian Statehood

For the past year Bret Stephens has expended an enormous amount of time and energy bashing Donald Trump. But Stephens must know that only Donald Trump would appoint David Friedman, a Torah observant Jew and proud Zionist, as America’s new ambassador to Israel. Stephens must also understand that only Donald Trump would bring Jared Kushner, […]

Islam and the Radical West

Not too long ago, my wife Karen and I were watching a news program where the phrase “Islamic radicalization” was used by various talking heads as an explanation for mass murder committed by IslamoNazis. The intellectually lazy pundits made it seem as if some nice middle class boys and girls were cruising the internet and […]

Palestine: The Psychotic Stage

Bret Stephens at the WSJ dares to call the so-called Palestinians evil. If you’ve been following the news from Israel, you might have the impression that “violence” is killing a lot of people. As in this headline: “Palestinian Killed As Violence Continues.” Or this first paragraph: “Violence and bloodshed radiating outward from flash points in […]

ObamaCare for Arabia

The democrat party would like nothing better than for the media to keep talking about Donald Trump, the Confederate flag, Bruce Caitlyn Jenner, or any other nonsense with which the radical left obsesses in their quest for ideological purity. What they don’t want to talk about is the Obama-Kerry surrender to Iran. Because when they […]

Obama Capitulates to Iran

PM Netanyahu’s Statement on the Obama-Kerry Deal With Iran 7/14/15 “I will refer later to the details of the agreement, but before that, I would like to say here and now – when you are willing to make an agreement at any cost, this is the result. From the initial reports we can already conclude […]

The Jewish State Alone

Yesterday, Seraphic Secret wrote, “We Jews have always been alone and imperiled — but this is the first time that we are aligned against an apocalyptic nuclear power.” In today’s WSJ, Bret Stephens headlines his weekly column, “Israel Alone”. Recent conversations with senior Israeli officials are shot through with a sense of incredulity. They can’t […]

Obama: The New Pharaoh

In the Passover seder we recite the following quote from the Torah: And there arose a new king over Egypt who did not know Joseph. (Exodus 1.8) The sages tell us that the new Pharaoh did not want to know Joseph, did not want to acknowledge the Jewish slave who rose to become Viceroy of […]

Obama Plays the Jew Card and the The Democrat Betrayal of Liberty

Iran going nuclear is not just about Israel. Obama, playing the standard leftist Jew-card, would have us believe that those pesky Jews are getting in the way of his faux negotiations with a genocidal yearning Islamist state. But the truth is, Iran as a nuclear threshold power is a direct threat to world freedom. When Democrats […]

Obama: A Sheep in Sheep’s Clothing

From the very beginning, Barack Obama has made clear his contempt for Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Not a surprise when you consider that Obama’s political and social education has been carried out by a ghastly row of far left agitators, socialist academics, and Islamists who cleverly substitute postmodern anti-Zionism for classical Jew-hatred. Into the […]

Plato, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, PalNazis — and Flying Pigs

Bret Stephens has an interesting article in today’s WSJ in which he posits that if the PalNazis turned all Gandhi, a Pal state would become inevitable. For this to happen, the PalNazis would have to stop being who and what they are: Islamic Supremacists, Jew-haters, barbarians. I once took a philosophy course in college. After […]

Syria, Poison Gas, Israel, America, and Awesome Obama Guppiness

The United States is in a difficult position. We understand that intervention in the Arab Muslim world is a thankless task that inevitably leads to further hatred of America and fixes absolutely nothing. Nothing can be fixed in the Arab Muslim world because the countries there have no sense of personal responsibility. The sectarian hatred, […]

Operation Pillar of Defense, Day Seven: Hey, Maybe the Ethnic Cleansing of Jews from Gaza Wasn’t Such a Bright Idea

A few days ago, Seraphic Secret recalled a conversation about Gaza with an American-Israeli leftist who supported the expulsion, all in the name of rainbows and unicorns. Of course, it was not only the left who advocated expelling 8,000 Jews from Gaza in a gesture of land for peace. There were those on the right […]

Obama on Israel: “I, I, I, and Furthermore I…”

In this morning’s Wall Street Journal, Bret Stephens analyzes President Obama’s deeply cynical speech to AIPAC. In addition, Stephens points out that before becoming president, Obama’s mentors on Israel were radical Jewish leftists whose views of Israel are closely aligned with Islamic Jihad. Like George Orwell, Seraphic Secret believes that language matters. Obama’s speech to […]
