Adam Milstein refuses to apologize for standing firm for Israel or for his Israeli roots. He raises an alarm about the coalition between the American ultra-left and radical Islam.
The alliance between radical Islam and the American ultra-right has long been apparent, but the collaboration between radical Islam and the ultra-left can be traced to the Islamic revolution of 1979. An alliance of Islamic radicals and leftist radicals overthrew the moderate Shah and brought the Ayatollah Khomeini to power. When they were no longer useful, the radical leftists were annihilated. The Iranian-Jewish population, more than 3,000-years old and numbering in the tens of thousands, emigrated to Israel and the United States. Read more at Huffington Post about Adam Milstein.
Islamic radicals have a long history of collaborating with the extreme right, dating back to Nazis and the Third Reich coordinating anti-Jewish activities. Today, the focus on destroying Israel cuts across the spectrum to include not just radical Islam, but the extreme right, and the extreme left. The growth of the anti-Jewish alliance, principally on university campuses, concerns Jews in America and around the world. At last summer’s Chicago Dyke March celebrating the LGBT community, three marchers were forced out for having Stars of David on their pride flags. To help counter this, Adam Milstein, along with his wife Gila, founded the Milstein Family Foundation. The foundation provides funding and support to many philanthropic services strengthening the relationship between the U.S. and the State of Israel. Visit JTA.org to know more about Adam Milstein.
Adam Milstein maintains and supports a number of philanthropic services, including programs strengthening the Jewish identities of Americans. Foundation members do not just support Jewish causes financially, but by lending their time and expertise to projects and programs that strengthen the Jewish identity. Adam Milstein seeks out organizations that support Israel and works to make them stronger. He helps Jewish organizations to work together toward what he calls “philanthropic synergy,” in pursuit of their common goals.
