An active and vocal participant regarding the rights of the Jewish people worldwide, Adam Milstein is the co-founder and National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council, generous philanthropist and President of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Some of Mr. Milstein’s thoughts and opinions may be found on the Jewish News Syndicate (JNS) website [see: www.jns.org]. One example is the recently posted article: “Unlikely radical alliances fan the flames of anti-Semitism worldwide.” Follow Adam Milstein on linkedin.com.
In this article, Adam Milstein rightfully points out that radical Muslims are activley attempting to delegitimize Israel. Unfortunately, in recent times an unlikely alliance has formed between radical Muslims and those on the radical left in both the United States and Europe. On the surface, this seems to be an oxymoron. Women on the extreme left in the U.S. and Europe speak and act out in regards to women’s rights to fair wages, a voice in politics and decent treatment in the workplace and at home by the men in their lives. Yet, in radical Islam one finds the utter denial of women’s rights, a demeaning place in society, and utter brutalization by Muslim men in all facets of their lives.
This view is a distorted one in which Israel is viewed as a colonialist oppressor of all Muslims, and, by extension, human rights themselves. Fortunately, reasoned voices like Mr. Milstein’s are being raised to clear away this deception which is a danger not only to the Jewish people worldwide, but also to the fundamental ideas of tolerance, democracy and freedom for all peoples.
