Close-up of Adam Milstein’s Fight Against Anti-Semitism

Adam Milstein, a philanthropist who works to support the state of Israel and US-Israeli relations, warns against the dangers of radical Islam in his recent article titled “Unlikely radical alliances fan the flames of anti-Semitism worldwide” (03/14/2018 edition of the Jewish News Syndicate).

The main thrust of Adam Milstein’s article is that radical Muslims are working with radical leftists to fan the flames of anti-Semitism throughout the world.

I agree with some of Adam Milstein’s assertions. There is a certain segment in America who are quick to paint Israel as evil for some of the actions it takes against Palestinians but refuse to equally judge the Palestinians and other actors such as ran and Syria for heinous acts committed against Israel.

And this unfortunate phenomena is not only in America. When I taught in China, for example, many of my students saw Palestinians as the innocent victims and Israel as the bad guy. When I explained to them that the situation in the Middle East was way more complex than that, they gave me the polite deference afforded a teacher in China. But their eyes belied their disagreement with my assessment.

But where Adam Milstein errs is in assigning such hypocrisy to just the left. There are many people whose political ideology lies to the right who are also quite anti-Semitic such as neo-Nazis and white nationalist groups. If Adam Milstein truly wants to help lead the crusade against anti-Semitism, he needs to attack it wherever it raises its ugly head, whether from radical leftists, or ultra-nationalist right wingers.

Racism, anti-Semitism, sexism, and other isms are not limited by geographical boundaries or ethnicities or economic statuses. Rather, they are conditions of attitudes and prejudices that are more spiritual in nature. Adam Milstein is to be commended for his efforts in fighting against anti-Semitism. How successful he will e will depend on how willing he is to tackle anti-Semitism wherever it exists.
