Adam Milstein is a prominent pro-Jewish activist living in the United States. He is the co-founder and chairman of thelargest organization that brings together Jews living in the diaspora known as the Israeli-American Council. He’s also a prominent business person as he’s the managing partner of a real estate company known as Hager Pacific Properties. Through the Israeli American organization, he holds different national programs aimed at bringing together people of Jewish origin. This organization supports the education of young Jews born and living in the diaspora with the aim of helping them understand the true Jewish identity.
Adam Milstein together with his wife, Gila, run a family foundation known as Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation. This foundation is known for its philanthropic initiatives such as offering subsidies to high school students who attend the annualAmerican Israeli Public Affairs Conference. Every year, Adam is donating millions to various organizations that are working together with his foundation.
Adam Milstein was born in the mid-1960s in Haifa, Israel and arrived in the United States in 1980s to pursue further education. He obtained her Masters in Business Administration at the University of South Carolina before starting the business journey. It is after finding success in the real estate business that he found it right to fulfill one of these biggest dreams which is offering support to charitable causes which improve the lives of Israelis.
Adam Milstein believes that charity plays a vital role in the lives of the Jews. When he was growing up, there are very few organizations whichoffered philanthropic services to Israelis. It was deemed that the government was providing everything for the community and therefore there was no need for extra support. However, Adam Milstein believes that there was so much that philanthropic organizations would do to help improve the lives of the Jews. This was the main reason why he came up with a plan to set up organizations such as the Israeli-American Council and the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Adam believes initiatives that support the unity of the jews will likely lead to a morestronger Jewish nationin the future.
Adam Milstein recently wrote an article on JNS entitled, Unlikely Radical Alliances Fan the Flames of Anti-Semitism Worldwide. In this article he names the radical alliances as Radical Islam and the Far Left. Calling out no other than Linda Sarsour, Imam Siraj Wajjah, Rasmea Odeh and then added a throwback: Ayatollah Khomeini the leader of the Iranian Revolution. In regard to the far left Adam Milstein named: Senator Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn, and Paul Eisen.
In any of these kinds of arguments there is always going to be some semblance of truth and the rest is a Salem Witch Hunt. It groups anyone who speaks out against your branch of oppression as being anti-something else. Like what the far right did to Colin Kaepernick. He took a knee during the National Anthem to protest police brutality on black Americans. The far right said he was disrespecting the flag. Same kind of thing here, some of the people Adam Milstien calls out have done anti-Semitic things. Denying the Holocaust, calling for the complete eradication of Israel, that’s real high on the anti-Semitic spectrum. Where Milstein loses grip with reality is when he puts Linda Sarsour, “my friend in my head” and Imam Siraj in this group.
Adam Milstein says Imam Siraj, is an unindicted co-conspiratorof the World Trade Center Bombing. What is a unindicted co-conspirator? That sounds like code for innocent but still reaching. I’ve visited Imam Siraj Masjid in Brooklyn and I’ve never once heard him speak negatively about any religious group.
Linda Sarsour is a Social Activist Badass! She is a Brooklyn native and unapologetic ally dope. She is also Palestinian -American and there is no way you can be Palestinian and pro-Zionist. Honestly, there’s no way you can be a decent human being and be pro-Zionist but I digress. There is a difference between being against the illegal Israeli Occupation of Palestine and being anti-Semitic. In the same way that Kaepernick taking a knee was not about being anti-America but being for the fair treatment of black people by the police in America is the same way being against Israeli troops murdering innocent Palestinian citizens is not the same as being Anti-Semitic. Unless, Adam Milstein views murdering the innocent as some version of Judaism I’m not aware of.
