In Pierke Avot (Ethic of the Fathers) Hillel teaches: “In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.”
Bibi Netanyahu won a resounding victory over the Israeli left and Barack Obama by paying heed to the great sage Hillel’s teaching. Bibi is a man in a world that is awash in eunuchs.
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.
All across the country protests, riots, and race-baiters doing what they do in order to disrupt civil society.
We don’t know about you, but here at Seraphic Secret we feel the need for some relief from the endless cycle of horrible, terrible, very bad news. We yearn for beauty, for images that, in one way or another, soothe the troubled soul.
We hope these images help carry our readers through the weekend.
Have you looked at a movie poster recently and said to yourself: I really have to see that film.
In the digital era movie posters are barely there, a minor and frequently mediocre—tedious star shots dominate—element in the white-noise media that is dominated by an ever-shifting social media.
There was a time, however, when movie posters were the dominant element by which audiences were lured to the movies.
Here are just a few samples of ordinary posters cranked out by the Hollywood studios; all are characterized by bold graphics and unusual fonts. These are posters that artfully promise action, mystery and romance.
