Jewish activist and philanthropist Adam Milstein has raised concerns about the growth of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Movement against Israel on American college campuses. Mr. Milstein described what he believes is fueling this growth and what can be done to stem its tide in a op-ed piece that was featured in the Huff Post. Below is a synopsis of what Adam Milstein wrote for the Huff Post on this subject and that was published on the 30th of May of this year.
Milstein begins his op-ed by stating that antisemitism and the BDS movement has seen dramatic declines over the past couple of decades in the United States. However, the last seven years have seen a massive spike in both antisemitic incidents and a significant growth of the BDS movement on college campuses in the USA. Mr. Milstein cites the Anti-Defamation League which determined that anti-Semitic incidents have risen by a third in 2016 over 2015. The first three months of 2017 saw an even greater spike in anti-Semitic incidents with an increase of 86% in incidents. What is even more alarming is the fact that most of the increase in antisemitism in the country is occurring at American colleges and learn more about Adam Milstein.
So why is antisemitism seeing a big rise after being on the fringes of society for so long? Adam Milstein believes that the BDS or Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Movement against the Jewish State of Israel has a big role to play in this. Milstein points out the fact that college campuses that had large numbers of BDS supporters and activists saw increases in antisemitic incidents and hate crimes against Jews.
Adam Milstein believes the correlation between BDS and antisemitism is very easy to explain and is undeniable. Wherever BDS takes holds in America, antisemitism inevitably follows. This includes violence and others forms of intimidation directed against the Jewish people and more information click here.
The best way to fight the BDS movement and antisemitism it brings is to expose it for it is. BDS is just another way to demonize and attack the Jewish state of Israel and the Jewish state. It has its roots in propaganda and misinformation. By educating people and telling them the facts about Israel and the Jews, BDS can be defeated and antisemitism can once again be banished from society and contact him.
