Over 5,000 police officers have been deployed to protect synagogues, and Jewish schools in France.
Let’s face it, under the Community Organizer, the U.S. seems to be disintegrating.
The implosion of American foreign policy in the Middle East is truly frightening. Iran is poised to spread its Islamist fascist hegemony in the vacuum created by Obama’s willful withdrawal from the world stage, while a bloody caliphate takes shape across parts of Iraq and Syria.
The endless parade of scandals and lies testifies to the imperial aspirations of Obama and his lawless bureaucrats—the IRS are nothing less than gangsters—who sneer with contempt at the American people.
The economy is in shambles, shrinking at a dangerous 2.9%. The jobless rate is at historic levels. U.S. debt is over $17 trillion. There are more Americans on food stamps than the population of Spain. Our border with Mexico is a Marxist wet dream. The VA is an abbatoir. Russia just snatched Crimea from the Ukraine. And Obama wants more funding for rebel Islamist groups in Syria, who are about as trustworthy as, well, the IRS.
But there is hope.
And Seraphic Secret has found it in a little Colorado restaurant.
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 same sentence.

Update: Our good friend Jake Novak, Senior Producer of the excellent Varney Report on Fox News, reminds us that Shatner is Jewish, thus “Jews and Guns” as a title is not totally random.
In light of yesterday’s post about Jews and guns and the vigorous, articulate comments from our readers I am republishing my three-part series about the LA Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were caught. We were unarmed. The police were, um, absent, and the bad guys owned the streets. It was a defining moment in my life.
Hollywood is burning.
Karen and I lock every door in the house, shut tight the windows, we move through the house switching off all the lights.
Gazing from our bedroom window we watch orange flames lick at the darkness, pillars of black smoke climbing into the sky. We can actually smell the acrid odor of burning rubber.
“Look how close they are,” says Karen.
“Just past La Cienega. Maybe eight blocks away.”
Karen gives me a long penetrating gaze:
“What do we do if they come here?”
My mind is racing away. The truth is we are defenseless. Unless I get crazy inventive like Dustin Hoffman in Straw Dogs.
“After this is all over,” I vow, “I’m going to buy a pistol.”
Karen says: “How about a shotgun?”
In the liberal world guns are viewed as evil.
In truth, guns are a tool which can be used for good or evil.
Plastic bags are also tools; they can bundle garbage or, as used by the Khymer Rouge of Cambodia, to murder one million innocent souls through suffocation.
Do we hear anyone calling for garbage bag control?
The Torah is quite explicit about man’s obligation to defend himself against harm. It is incumbent to kill someone who has come to kill you. Thus, the preemptive strike—personal or national—is sanctioned by halacha, Jewish law.
There is no place in Judiasm for pacifism. In fact, not to act against evil is evil itself.
Liberal Jews are, no surprise, in the forefront of gun control, code for banning private ownership of weapons.
Of course, this guarantees that the state and criminals have a monopoly on guns.
Not a desirable scenario.
One of Hitler’s first laws was banning private ownership of weapons.
Same for Stalin.
Thus, modern liberal ideology and classic genocidal totalitarianism cozily converge.
Here’s a fine series of videos about Judaism and guns. The rabbi in the video is conversant in Torah, halacha, and the cruel lessons of history.
Remember, it was men with guns—lots and lots of guns—who defeated the Nazis, liberated the concentration camps, and crushed imperial Japan, not pacifists, peaceniks, or students of, ahem, conflict resolution, code for useless and delusional academics.
