Even though the world today has a lot of emphasis placed on equality and diversity, antisemitism is still a powerful sentiment among certain groups in society, and philanthropist and activist Adam Milstein has worked to shed light on it. Milstein is a contributor to Jewish News Syndicate as well as several other news outlets, and he’s often writing about issues like antisemitism and other challenges facing the Jewish-American and Israeli-American communities. He mentions that radical Islam has taken the place of the Third Reich in modern times to be the biggest force of antisemitism and that it’s also found a companion among the progressive left. He mentions that the agenda has to be fought on multiple fronts and that its common vehicles come on college campuses and through social media avenues. But he says that everyone should be involved in exposing the atrocities of radical Islam and its partners. Learn more about Adam Milstein at israeliamerican.org.
