The radical right has always peddled anti semitic points of view. While this will certainly surprise no one, who has even been paying a modicum of attention over the past few years, the radical left has also begun to sprout anti semitic views with a far greater rate of regularity.
To Israeli-Americans like Adam Milstein, this is not an acceptable state of affairs. Adam Milstein also finds himself worried about the movements of radicalized Muslims who are also known to spread anti semitic propaganda whenever possible.
All of these groups may share the same misguided beliefs but they each have a different manner of expressing them. The traditions might change from religion to religion. To those who are forced to live out the consequences of these viewpoints, the end result of this bigotry is more or less the same.
North Americans and Europe have both been forced to watch the rise of these groups in horror. It may seem as if the far left should be shocked and dismayed by these behaviors. However, these groups are able to come together and bond over a series of common enemies.
None of these groups are too fond of Western cultural influences that are making their way into their daily living. The groups also despise the same freedom of speech that Adam Milstein fights for. Milstein also finds himself wondering how the far left could find themselves closely tied to such hateful groups.
In the mind of Adam Milstein, the reason for this is a rather simple one: a view of history that is woefully distorted. They view Israel as an oppressive nation and this is what keeps them from knowing the truth. This odd allegiance is even allowing these ideas to spill into the mainstream.
These ideas must be eradicated from the mainstream point of view before it is too late. Now that anti semitic sentiments are even making their way to college campuses, the time has come for serious actions to be taken. Otherwise, we increase the risk of potentially existing in a society where antisemitic points of views will start to become the cultural default.
