  • Boycott Israel? Not on my campus

    By Judea Pearl

    January 3, 2014 | 12:14 pm

    There are many good reasons to oppose the American Studies Association (ASA) decision to boycott Israeli universities. But there are some bad reasons as well. Many arguments against the boycott play exactly into the hands of the pro-boycott propagandists and give them the...

  • Shahs of Sunset Finale Recap - Finally!

    By Ilana Angel

    May 1, 2012 | 5:47 pm

    I don’t know what is harder to believe, that the first season of Shahs of Sunset is over, or that someone at Bravo actually thought that 6 weeks of this show would be enough.  Really Bravo?  We are hooked, and now we are also pissed.  These people make for good television and 6...

    By Ilana Angel

    April 11, 2012 | 9:27 am

    It’s a drag this season is only 6 shows because we are just starting to get into it and they will be gone.  It’s been interesting to meet these people and I hope when they return for season two, Ryan Seacrest lets go of the fake situations and just lets it flow.  These people are...

    April 4, 2012 | 8:57 am

    We start this week with Reza going over to GG’s for lunch. She is pretty and Reza is divine, but it felt a little too scripted to me.  I’m not sure if Bravo or Reza scripted it, but he got out of having to go the anniversary party of GG’s parents, and we were stuck watching an...

    I have interviewed a lot of reality personalities.  Some have been around for a long time, and some are new to the spotlight.  I have liked most and loved a couple, but never have I spoken with one who truly changed me.  Not in star struck way, but in an authentic and heartfelt way. ...

    We start off with the final moments of the Vegas trip for Reza’s birthday. Everyone is packed and ready to go except for MJ, who has not even started to pack.  You have to love MJ.  I have not figured her out yet but we know she is a sloppy drunk and seems to have absolutely no...

    I had the opportunity to talk with Sammy this week and I must tell you that I was really surprised by him.  I‘m not sure what it was exactly that I was expecting, but it was not what I got.  Shahs of Sunset has only been on for a couple of weeks and so it’s hard to say how he...

  • Shahs of Sunset – Why So Much Hate?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 19, 2012 | 12:33 am

    I am not ashamed to tell you that I like this show.  It would be a lie, but I am not ashamed.  Truth is, I love it.  This is a fun, entertaining, mindless and fun romp into lives of a group of friends that happen to Persian.  Their religions vary, but that does not matter because...

  • Shahs of Sunset - Hello? We’re Persian!

    By Ilana Angel

    March 12, 2012 | 2:54 am

    The wait is over.  Shahs of Sunset has been in the works for a long time and it finally premiered.  There has been a lot of talk about this group, and most of it not good.  They have been labeled bad for Persians, bad for Jews, and bad for America.  At the end of the day they are a...
