Jew Without a Gun: 25 Years Ago, the LA Riots

This coming Saturday marks the 25the anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots. Thus, I am republishing my three-part series about the riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys—frequently […]

Holocaust Memorial Day: Death March to Dachau

One of my closest friends here in Los Angeles is Mr. Sol Teichman, a prominent citizen, businessman, philanthropist, and a Holocaust survivor. Born on September 9, 1927, in the Hungarian town of Munkacs, Sol’s family were prominent and prosperous grain, bean and walnut merchants. The family lived in a lovely home in a quiet cul-de-sac. […]

Iran: Bigger Threat than North Korean and Syria Combined

Below is Michael Oren’s April 15 op-ed from the Wall Street Journal, in which Ambassador Oren argues that the Trump administration must act decisively now to address a threat to the United States greater than that of Syria and North Korea combined: Iran.

Swedish Editorial: Ban Cars to Reduce Terrorism

When I saw this headline I thought it was a joke, a parody. I should have realized that Progressive ideology is beyond parody. I assume the next time an IslamoNazi in Sweden attacks a Jew, the solution will be obvious: get rid of the Jews. It’s hard to imagine how anyone with a reasonably functioning […]

Passover 2017, The Problem of Freedom

Tonight begins the holiday of Passover in which Jews celebrate deliverance from Egyptian bondage. In order to escape the shackles of slavery, the vast machinery of the mighty Egyptian state had to be crushed. Those who wielded absolute power were reduced to nothingness. G-d did this not only to diminish the physical power of a […]

The Westworld Haggadah

by Jake Novak There’s a key moment in the Seder when the Haggadah informs us that all Jews must think of themselves as if they personally came out of bondage in Egypt. Talk about a tall order. Thank goodness, most of us live decidedly comfortable middle or upper middle class lives. Getting our heads and […]

The Artist Who Taught George W. Bush to Paint

The lives of ex-Presidents are as varied as the men who held the office. When President Bush left office I assumed he would settle down in his beloved ranch, write his memoirs, and become a quiet political power broker. It never occurred to me that George W. Bush would turn his considerable energies towards making […]
