Adam Milstein Is Involved In The Great Plight Of Judaism

Adam Milstein is a contemporary leader in the Jewish community. He is as Jewish as you can get; he is a Jewish person who grew up in Israel. If there is anybody who fully understands the issues of Jews, it is Adam Milstein. What has added to his understanding is his devotion to the Jewish plight. Him and his wife operate the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. They also operate another charity called Sifriyat Pijama B’America. These charities exist for the purpose of encouraging enthusiasm for Jewish identity.

An important part of Judaism is the concept of keeping the Jewish race going. The way to fulfill this goal is to have more children. Children symbolize fertility, good health, a prospective future and hope. This is why Adam Milstein is proud to have had three daughters, a granddaughter and two grandsons. In the world of Judaism, it was especially a win for him to have had grandsons, considering that fact that males are supposed to be the leaders in Judaism. Traditionally, the religion is very male-centric and has a clear division of gendered roles. Also, it must have been refreshing to have had two grandsons, considering the fact that he raised three daughters. He did a mitvah by starting a family and reproducing so that there are more Jews in the world.

Adam Milstein is a promoter of the Israeli plight. An Israeli nationalist, he is all about defending the place. His beliefs fall along the line of thinking that any attack on Israel is an attack on all Jews. Israel is intertwined with Jewish people because it is within their theology, and the theology of their ancestors, to end up there. Also, there needs to be a place where Jews can safely exist among each other and have autonomy over themselves with their own government. This is because of the fact that wherever Jews go, they end up being hated. Whenever they live in lands that aren’t their own, they end up being a hated minority group that the government and majority bully around.

Thor Halvorssen’s Surprising Interview with Fox News

In a recent interview with Fox News, Thor Halvorssen was asked about his views regarding socialism and how it relates to basic human rights. Halvorssen is with the Human Rights Foundation and is well versed in both of the topics at hand.

Halvorssen is first asked why he believes socialism is a violation of basic human rights. To clarify, Halvorssen explains that countries can encompass human rights while also having socialist aspects to their governments, using countries such as Norway and Denmark as examples. According to Halvorssen, the problems comes when socialism is being used as a mask under authoritarian governments and leaders. These types of governments claim they are trying to help the people however, they turn around and use socialism as form of power to loot the country.

The Fox News anchor goes on to express her concern of Bernie Sanders supporters not knowing what socialism is and ask Thor Halvorssen to explain what the true definition is. Halvorssen answers by saying that people can use a number of definitions when defining socialism and that it does not necessarily contradict democracy and human rights.

The interview takes a quick turn when Halvorssen ( is asked what his problem is with existing socialist countries. Halvorssen mentions the violation of free markets and then, to the interviewers surprise, claims that he has made the largest allowable donation to the campaign of Bernie Sanders. When asked to elaborate, Halvorssen says that the Democratic front runner, Hillary Clinton, has taking millions of dollars from dictators around the world.

It is Thor Halvorssen’s belief that a candidate who accepts money from dictators is much more dangerous than one who is a democratic socialist. Halvorssen thinks that democratic socialism can exist if there is “rule of law” and that there is only a problem when an authoritarian dictator steps in.

Thor’s Halvorssen’s defense of Bernie Sanders seems to be something that the interviewer and news channel did not expect. What originally seemed like a segment meant to belittle Sanders quickly turned into one justifying his democratic socialist views.
