Sadly, it’s no surprise that there are still hundreds of hate-groups preventing society from moving forward. What might be surprising is how effective these groups work to achieve their hateful goals. The hate acts against Jewish students on college campuses across America is still an ongoing battle.
Adam Milstein, co-founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation and proud speaker of pro-Israel advocacy, often writes articles about the struggles of Jewish-Americans. Recently, he brought BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) groups to everyone’s attention. The groups are founded for the sole purpose of harassing and intimidating Jewish students.
There are stories involving these groups trying to block a Jewish student’s participation in her school’s student government’s Judicial Board. Another story describes one student’s harassment during student elections because of her open support for Israel. These groups openly taunt and degrade visiting foreign ministers and some even physically assault Jewish students and AEPI Houses.
One of the most frightening aspects of these groups is the sheer size and capacity of the overall organization. It’s mind-boggling who nationally coordinated these groups are. They’re also well-funded and professionally organized. All over the country, they stage anti-Israel events and demonstrations the specifically attack progressive movements pro-Israel activists.
The most shocking members of BDS groups are the professional agitators that run many of the on-campus groups. These leaders are usually paid doctoral students who live on campus for free for decades at a time. Their sole purpose is running anti-Israel campaigns and local Student for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapters.
Adam Milstein wants people to understand the slanted disadvantage Jewish-Americans face. Fortunately, over the years, many groups rose to combat the targeted hate. Many of Adam’s partner organizations and SSI (Students Supporting Israel) groups are beating back the hate.
As for Adam Milstien, he continues focusing on providing philanthropic services to as many pro-Israel organizations as he can. The Milstein Family Foundation believes in helping any group trying to strengthen the Jewish people, their heritage, and the State of Israel.
