Adam Milstein’s latest opinion piece in the Jerusalem Post discusses the cooperation occurring between radical leftists and radical Islamists to spread antisemitism and delegitimize the state of Israel. Mr. Adam Milstein discusses this disturbing and growing new trend in the October op-ed piece featured in the Jerusalem post in detail and explains what is the reason why radical leftists and radical Islamists are working together.
It may seem strange at first that these two very different factions will be cooperating says Adam Milstein. Radical leftists claim that feminism, equality and LGBT rights are the bedrock of their beliefs. The radical Islamists meanwhile, call for Sharia law or strict Islamic law that mandates women be subjugated, and homosexuals imprisoned or executed.
These two sides are seemingly incompatible with one another, yet they are working together to delegitimize the state of Israel, which is where Adam Milstein was born and grew up in. Both groups are also virulently anti-Semitic. Adam Milstein exclaims that the common denominator between these two groups is that they both loathe the West and the freedom it offers. The fact that Israel is a thriving Western-style democracy makes it abhorrent both to radical leftists and radical Islamists.
Even though they have very different beliefs when it comes to women’s rights, freedom of religion, and LGBT rights, they share the same hatred for Israel and the West. This makes them partners during anti-Israel demonstrations and even anti-American demonstrations. The radical left and radical Islamic alliance is only growing stronger and poses an ever-greater threat to the Jewish community and the state of Israel says Adam Milstein.
There are plenty of people on the radical left such as Bernie Sanders in the United States and Jeremy Corbyn in the United Kingdom who are encouraging antisemitism according to Mr. Milstein. Both Sanders and Corbyn campaigned for Paul Eisen, who is a self-avowed Holocaust denier. Paul Eisen has even published a book about the denial of the Holocaust. He claims the systematic murder of over 6 million Jews by the Nazi regime never happened.
Adam Milstein believes that the best way to counter the growing threat of the radical left and the radical Islamists today is to take the fight to them. When he is not working with Hager Pacific Properties, Mr. Milstein works fervently with pro-Israel groups that fight against BDS. He also works with many other charities that combat antisemitism in the United States, especially on college campuses. Mr. Milstein also leads the Israeli-American Council, which is a major Jewish organization within the United States.
