  • The Dichter Scale

    By Rob Eshman

    February 5, 2014 | 1:11 pm

    One way to determine whether Israeli politicians are serious about wanting to become prime minister is to check how many times they’ve visited Los Angeles.

    By that measure, Avi Dichter is very serious.

    For Israelis running for office, Los Angeles is an ATM. You come, you speak,...

  • Howard Stern’s secret, and ours

    By Rob Eshman

    January 28, 2014 | 4:10 pm

    On my way to work every morning I listen to Howard Stern. I’ve been listening for 20 years.

    In the beginning, I didn’t tell anyone. Polite society dismissed Stern as a crude, sexist, racist “shock jock.” Putting “shock jock” before someone’s name is an instant denigration, like...

  • Auschwitz in North Korea

  • ‘The Wolf’ and the Jewish problem

    By Rob Eshman

    “The Wolf of Wall Street” is nauseating, pornographic and soul-crushing — and you have to see it.

    You have to see it, because you — meaning society, Jews, all of us as individuals — have to face the questions it raises about money, wealth and morality.

  • Chanukah at the White House

    By Rob Eshman

    December 6, 2013 | 3:36 pm

    My new favorite way to celebrate Chanukah is lighting candles with Barack Obama.

    The White House Chanukah Party was held Dec 5, a day after Chanukah.  It was my first time attending the annual event, which President George W. Bush began in 2001.  I don’t expect it’s one of those...

  • What's next for Iran?

    By Rob Eshman

    November 25, 2013 | 10:11 am

    By Monday morning, the Israeli reaction to the nuclear deal with Iran had changed from “What happened?” to “Now what?”

    And that reaction makes a lot more sense.
