Adam Milstein’s Latest Article On Antisemitism And Its Reach Into The Radical Left

Supporting the homeland of Israel and building a strong Jewish-American coalition is what philanthropist Adam Milstein has been doing for most of his life, and he recently wrote an article with the Jewish News Syndicate about the importance of combating antisemitism in the mainstream arenas. Antisemitism is no longer relegated to only alternative right political groups, but it’s also very prominent on the radical left among those with ties to Muslim brotherhood groups. Milstein even recounted in his article how throughout the years the Nazi party and Soviets also have had ties to various Islamic nations. The key to defeating the agenda of antisemitic groups like radical Islam and its cohorts is identifying them when they’re disguised as feminists and civil rights groups, and calling them out for what their ideology truly is.

How Can You Support Civil, Human and Migrant Rights?

There are any number of reasons you may feel passionate about human, civil and migrant rights. Perhaps you are ready to do more than just have feelings on such emotional topics as fundamental rights for all people. If this is the case, there are countless ways you can help.

You can get started without going further than your laptop, or you can get out and get out and challenge yourself with something more hands on. The following are just a few ideas, once you get started giving, you’ll find opportunities everywhere you look.

Be Vocal

Every time there is a rally or a protest, be vocal. Get involved, show up and bring an extra sign. Making your voice literally heard while supporting a cause helps to get people in office to pay attention to the objectives of the movement. Talk about foreign relations, talk about the borders and what migrants are running toward.

The more you know, the more you will want to turn out to show support. Please note; you should be prepared to be peaceful about it and know your legal rights before getting involved.

Petition Your Representatives

It is important that you take the time to reach out to your government officials such as state representatives. If you know a local family that can benefit from their telling their story, it helps to make it personal and relatable.

Try to grab every opportunity you can to email, write, call and encourage others to do so. Many studies suggest this is the best way to get new laws and regulations enforced. Remember that power can be a double-edged sword.

If too many people are making their voices heard about the wrong things, it can force groups of people to lose their rights. Be vigilant and educated in politics and voice your opinion every chance you get, especially to those who can do something about it.

Donate to Support Groups

Find places you can donate your time and resources to. In some instances, you can start at a local kitchen, helping to prepare meals. Shelters need people to organize donations and food drives. You can also be involved with groups that help migrant families get started once they are here.

Take It A Step Further

Choose to research groups that fight injustices on a personal level. Consider supporting groups like the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund. The fund was set up after a 2007 incident where Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were forcibly removed from their home and unjustly arrested.

It turns out their crimes were exposing the injustice carried out by the Arpaio, detailing the facts in the Phoenix New Times. Exposure of the Sheriff’s office rampant mismanagement, including unconstitutional detention of Latinos were the only things the journalists were guilty of doing.

The arrest led to a lawsuit with a $3.75 million-dollar settlement to Larkin & Lacey, and the fund established shortly after. Donating to funds such as this can help you get help closest to the border and assisting on a personal level.

Supporting their foundation means you are helping support a group that is working in Arizona, specifically close to the Mexican border in support of civil, human, and migrant rights. Their support includes freedom of speech, as well as civic participation in Arizona, specifically the Mexican border, or ‘la linea fronteriza.’
