In times of unrest, upheaval, and oppression there are always a few individuals who stand up, speak out, and act in accordance with their beliefs and principles. Adam Milstein, an outspoken philanthropist, is one such individual.
Born in 1952 in Haifa, Israel, the son of a veteran of Israel’s War of Independence, Adam Milstein was all too familiar with the struggles of Israel’s rebirth as a nation. While educational goals as well as his profession brought him to America during his early adulthood. He inherited a fire for his homeland from his father and has put his passion to good use for the nation of Israel on the world stage.
Since his move to America, Adam Milstein has had continued success in the real estate industry. He is currently a partner at Hager Pacific. He is also the National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council. Furthermore, in 2000 he founded and currently serves as president of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, a non profit organization which strives to strengthen the Nation of Israel and fortify relations between the United States and Israel through education of fellow Israeli-Americans as well as allies and supporters of the Nation of Israel. In 2016 The Jerusalem Post named Milstein one of the World’s fifty most influential Jews and Algemeiner, a seperate publication, named him one of the top one hundred people who positively influence Jewish life.
When he’s not spending time with his family, excelling in his chosen profession, or busy with his charitable work, Adam Milstein, under the guidance of the old adage, “The pen is mightier than the sword” writes for JNS (Jewish News Syndicate). An online and exponentially growing news agency which covers Israel and the Jewish world. JNS has affiliates such as Fox Nation, The Jewish Post and News, K-LOVE, and JewishPress.com. They provide news and analysis to upwards of one hundred publications both printed and digital.
Milstein’s latest article entitled, Unlikely Radical Alliances Fan the Flames of Anti-Semitism Worldwide, highlights growing antisemitism due to radical Muslim groups aligning with radical leftist organizations. While the two extremes have widely differentiating ideology they share a common bond in their hatred of western civilizations world influence, freedom of speech, and extreme distrust and prejudice against Israel and Jewish people. The radical lefts view of Israel as a colonialist oppressor has garnered sympathy for Muslims and created a pathway for Islamic extremist to spew their hatred for Jews under the guise of a false victimhood. He goes on to cite examples of leaders of the left such as Bernie Sanders and Linda Sarsour campaigning for an antisemitic politician and publicly thanking an (unindicted) co-conspirator of the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, respectively. Such actions from the supposed advocates of human rights is appalling to say the least. The entire article is both enlightening and provocative.
In this topsy turvy political landscape where ideology is conveniently pushed aside and hypocrisy along with unadulterated hate are celebrated it is inspiring to know there are those who speak out against such unabashed prejudice. Adam Milstein is certainly one such person, and indeed a champion of Israel.
