Adam Milstein: The Jewish Community’s Enlightenment on the Consequential Actions of Radical Muslims

As a man that stands to be represented by the several professional titles attached to his name, Adam Milstein is viewed by many people within the Jewish community as being a well-respected businessman and Pro-Israel activist who dedicates his time to administering philanthropic services to uplift native Israelis. However, prior to becoming the well-established managing partner, philanthropist, and blog author that he is today, Milstein demonstrated leadership qualities many years beforehand at the prime of his adulthood.

Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel to the parents of a homemaker (mother) and real estate developer (father). As a child, Adam had the pleasure of living within various cities in Israel as his parents relocated accordingly to make suit of their lifestyle. Nonetheless, despite the versatility in his upbringing, Milstein still managed to take hold of responsibility and made the decision to join the Israeli Defense Forces to serve in the Yom Kippur War at the age of 19—a decision that rendered him capable of leadership fulfillment. After the war ended, he married his partner (Gila) and decided to further his education by enrolling at the Israel Institute of Technology in 1978 where he later graduated with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Industrial and Business Management. Shortly after that, Adam Milstein and his wife relocated to the Unites States. Furthermore, in succeeding his move to the U.S., Adam continued his education to earn his MBA degree from USC—an honor that propelled him to eventually become a Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties.

To add to his list of accomplishments, Adam Milstein and wife Gila co-founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation to assist the needs of the Jewish community via the provision of financial resources and education. Moreover, as an active board member to several Pro-Israel organizations, Adam Milstein used his platform to become a blog author for Jewish News Syndicate. In his latest article on the JNS blog, Milstein gives a wake-up call to his fellow Jewish brethren with his discussion of the latest trend of the growing alliance between radical leftists, radical rightists, and radical Muslims. Milstein relates how even though the alliance between radical Muslims and rightists has existed for quite some time due to their sharing of extreme ideologies of humane treatment, the growing merge by radical leftists to adapt to this anti-Semitic way of thinking is atypical and poses as a threat to Jewish culture because it signifies the Jewish community’s diminishing support by those in favor of societal equality. Nevertheless, Milstein feels that his audience should take heed to the matter because as more and more people target Israel as a state of oppressors, hatred will grow and the nation of Israel will be forced to be delegitimized.


Sean Penn’s Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff

Sean Penn has worn many hats. Most famously as an Oscar-award winning actor, but he has also been a writer, producer, director, a war correspondent, and an interviewer. He recently put on his writer’s hat, to write and publish his first novel, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff. This dark but hilarious work centers on a man who works a variety of odd jobs like selling septic tanks, setting up firework stands, and helping give aid to immigrant workers. But he also has a much darker side job as a contract killer for the U.S. government.

Critics are divided about it. Some are considering an instant classic work of satire, while many others are saying that it is a very sad effort by an actor making a play at being a serious writer. However, most of the criticism against Penn and his book concerns his commentary therein concerning the #MeToo movement. His book contains a six-page criticism of what he considers a very childish crusade. But Penn does not like it that this seems to be the major thing most critics seem to be highlighting in there reviews. He says this is just one of the many important ideas he communicates in the novel. He says taken as a whole his work is offering a criticism of our rampant superficiality of a culture. He says the book’s conclusion is that we’re either for inclusion or for divisiveness.



But while Penn is clear that his opinions are clear in his book, he says he wants it mostly to be viewed as a work of fiction rather than just an opinion piece. Regardless of any harsh criticism, the book has been hugely popular throughout its lifespan. This was even the case before it was published, all of the released snippets going viral. And it appears the popularity and love for the book are not only remaining but climbing. Time will tell where this work will land in history’s pantheon of literature, will it be recognized as an enduring classic or will it soon be forgotten? Above all else, Penn wants this to be seen as a work of fiction and that it instigates authentic change.
