As part of his crusade concerning the plight of the Jewish people, Adam Milstein utilizes article writing as one of his methods. His latest article dated February 7th, 2018 in the Jewish News Syndicate(JNS) touches on anti-Semitism and how its negative impact on the country of Israel where he speaks on how lately anti-Semitism has been made a cornerstone in the radicalization of Islam. Two groups that traditionally have very different principles unite with the common goal of stopping Western influence, the radical leftists and the radical Muslims. The former has no regard for the fact that the latter tries to portray Muslims as one group and ignores the existence of radicalized and non-radicalized factions in Islam. Their anti-Semitism agenda is rooted in the claim that Jewish people are the cause of all the problems in the Middle East and the world in general. He gives the example of Linda Sarsour as an example of this clashing ideology, where she was an organizer of the Women’s March in Washington, DC while at the same time supporting the abuse of women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. He also gives the example of Tufts University and New York University students that published guides that were profoundly anti-Semitic in bearing, openly accusing Israel of being a White Supremacist state.
Throughout the article, Adam Milstein highlights the influence of radical Islam in the demeaning of Israel and Jewish people. He tells of how Jewish people have been victims of the radicalization even dating back to the days of Adolf Hitler and the Jewish war. He concludes the article by warning that if this trend is allowed to continue especially in tertiary institutions, then the very future of the Jewish people is at stake.
