To say that Adam Milstein is a son of Israel is something of an understatement. He was born in the northern Israeli port city of Haifa. In 1973, during the Yom Kippur holiday, Israel was attacked by the combined armies of Egypt, Iraq, and Syria. Adam Milstein served in the Israeli Defense Forces repelling the Egyptian invaders and was in the unit commanded by then General Ariel Sharon that pushed the Egyptian army across the Suez and back into Egypt.
In 1974, following his military service, Milstein married the former Gila Elgraby. In 1981, he moved his wife and two young daughters to the United States to take advantage of educational and economic opportunities. After earning an MBA from the University of Southern California and becoming a managing partner in the commercial real estate firm of Hager Pacific Properties, Milstein retired from business to become an advocate for the nation of Israel and for Jews worldwide. He spends his days writing and speaking about the dangers faced by the Jews from the unlikely alliance of Islamic extremists and extreme left wing radicals.
The fundamentalist incarnation of Islam taught in Mosques and Madrasas worldwide, has long been allied with the extreme right and is now forming and maintaining alliances with the radical left. Across the political spectrum and around the world, fanatics from both extremes are synchronizing their actions against Jews in general and the nation of Israel in particular, focusing their efforts on the destruction of the Jewish homeland.
Adam Milstein points out that in joining radical Islam, the extreme left overlooks the Muslim treatment of women, minorities, and homosexuals, and even campaigns for the implementation of sharia law. They portray all Muslims as being innocent and childlike, subjugated by Israel and her allies. Islam is depicted as “the religion of peace,” with Israel cast in the role of evil conquerors.
Adam Milstein demonstrates that the menace is spreading onto college campuses. Extremists at Tufts University, a private research institution in Medford, Massachusetts, published a “Disorientation Guide” that depicted Israel as a nation of white supremacists. One of the authors pointed out that the guide could not possibly be anti-Semitic because she herself is Jewish.
