A blog contributor and prominent member of Jewish society, Adam Milstein, writes at JNS.org that anti-Semitism is becoming more commonplace and rising in America. It is extending into Leftist politics and the mainstream, where it was once just a fringe group of people on the alt-right. In the past, Muslims have usually blamed Jews for being all powerful Zionists that are the root cause of all problems in the Middle East. The interesting thing that Adam Milstein notes is that leaders of the women’s movement and the Women’s March such as Linda Sarsour are pushing extreme views that have anti-Semitic ties.
Linda Sarsour has publicly led a “Jihad against Trump” speech where she praises extremist people such as Siraj Wajjah, who is one of the co-conspirators that tried to blow up the World Trade Center in 1993 in New York City; Linda Sarsour even praises the Saudi Arabian poor treatment of women.
In addition to everything that Linda Sarsour has been doing and advocating to thousands of women and Americans, Adam Milstein asserts that some colleges and universities have taken on anti-Semitic positions themselves. At Tufts University, which has long been a university in good standing, there has been allowed a “disorientation guide” for incoming students which asks them to condemn the state of Israel for its “white supremacy”. Even at NYU, New York University, the state of Israel is called out 55 times compared to a far lesser number then extremist jihadism or even sentiments from Trump are. But this type of anti-Semitism on college campuses does not stay just within New York City, it also extends into Chicago as well. Adam Milstein writes that at the Dyke March for LGBT members and also the “slutwalk” which is aimed at ending sexual harassment in Chicago, anyone who is caught displaying the Star of David is promptly kicked out of the march.
