Adam Milstein is a spokesperson for various Israeli-American leadership groups and he’s taken a particular interest to pro-Israel activist groups on college campuses. He mentioned stories that haven’t gotten much media attention on how Jewish students have been barred from serving on various student government organizations, and those organizations have also called for boycotts against Israel. AEPi, a Jewish fraternity group has also seen its frat houses attacked by alt-right and progressive left groups on college campuses, and many have remarked how both the alt-right and progressive left have begun to wage a war that not only is directed at Jews and the state of Israel, but also he believes is ultimately geared to destroy America as well. His solution is to form a task force that will involve Jews from all over the place to denounce and take physical action if necessary against the antisemitic forces, and philanthropists Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban have both expressed support of this.
