Adam Milstein knows that the fight against anti-Semitism is far from over.
His article “Fighting Anti-Semitism Wherever It Exists” addresses the importance of not only being anti-Semitic but being a true ally for Jewish people by speaking out against any and all injustices wherever they should crop up. Adam Milstein believes that any hate should be immediately called out and squashed, otherwise, people around the world will suffer and not have the liberties that others enjoy. This is a moral issue for Adam Milstein, who sees an alarming rise in anti-Semitism that has not existed since the Second World War.
What might seem like a silly joke could actually be cloaking anti-Semantic sentiments. By not calling out racism, bigotry, and anti-Semitism, we are allowing it to exist, flourish and become more mainstream. This is dangerous, according to Adam Milstein. How can we fight anti-Semitism?
Stand Up For Your Neighbors
We live in a global community. When you see something, say something. Don’t let a joke slide because it might not be serious. Stand up for your neighbors as you would want them to stand up for you because someday, they might have to.
Having A Clear Ethical And Moral Compass
Adam Milstein explains that tolerating hate is not being tolerant. Anti-semitism is not a matter of political difference; it is an intolerable stance that hurts other people. It is the expression of hatred, not a difference of opinion. Therefore, it should not be tolerated.
Become A Crucial Ally
It is really not enough to be silent, Adam Milstein explains. be an active ally of the Jewish-American population and you can really make a significant difference. Jewish people only make up about 2 percent of the population, so they really are a minority and could use your help.
Fight For Change
Make your voice heard! Now is the time to actively fight for change in your communities, social circles and other areas of your life. Attend a conference or a rally, stand up for your Jewish friends when they are being unfairly insulted.
