The Axis of Evil Grows Larger and Bolder; Adam Milstein

Adam Milstein is a prolific writer with JNS, a Jewish Online News Platform that keeps track of events that affect Jews in Israel, the Middle East and elsewhere. In his recent post, Adam opines that there is a trend of radical alliances forming with reenergized anti-Semitism sentiments. According to Milstein, in a post on JNS in February, there has been a serious anti-Semitism sentiment for long in the Middle East on what he calls the radical right. However, he points out that in the recent past, the sentiment has spread to the radical left too. In fact, according to Milstein, it is the anti-Semitism stance that unites the radical Islamic groups. Mr. Adam Milstein points out that while in the past the hatred for Jews to be localized to specific regions, especially in the Middle, it is no longer the case. Anti-Semitism now unites Muslims from a wide range of cultures across the globe. It is worth noting that even in geographical and cultural settings that were predominantly Christian, Muslim radicals have managed to build cells and even convince some of the locals to join their, hate, racism and bigotry cause.

Summary of Adam Milstein’s background and Career

Adam Milstein is a well known and respected international Philanthropist. He was born in Israel in 1950s. Adam was conscripted in the Israeli Defense Forces in 1971. Adam had his first war experience with IDF in 1973 during the Yom Kippur War. He has a degree in Economics and Business from the Israeli Institute of Technology. He assisted his father in his real estate business after his studies. He later moved to the USA with his wife and two daughters. He also pursued an MBA degree after he arrived in the USA and successfully graduated. He has pursued real estate ventures, an area of business that seems to have worked well for him.

Radicalization in New Geographical and Cultural Locations

Adam Milstein notes in his blog that Europe was the first to start experiencing the anti-Semitism and radical Islam within its territories. He says that Europe watched unions forming between the radical leftists and the radical Muslim groups. It is a common culture among radical Muslims to stone women, subject felony offenders to humiliating and inhuman treatment, Ignore the rights of the minorities, hate feminism and so on. Gays are executed. Theoretically, these are practices that should shock the left wing. Strangely in the recent day, the Muslim radical groups have found alliances among the far leftists who choose to look the other way as the Muslim leaning persuasions continue to mete injustice to humans within their control. The rallying call for the odd brotherhood is the fact that the western authorities demand democracy, freedom of speech and inclusivity in governance.

How is it Possible?

The problem with radical Islam is that it has thrashed out the truth about Islam. It has chaperoned an ideology that Islam is one amorphous block and keeps rubbing in the tale all Muslims are victims of oppression by the West. The Radical left sells the narrative that Israel is a colonial oppressor. It also holds that Jews are the cause of all problems that Muslims face in the Middle East.

Sean Penn Trades the Camera for the Blank Page with “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”

Sean Penn is a noted actor, writer, producer, director, columnist, war correspondent, and interviewer. He has two Academy Awards for Best Actor under his belt, and a host of memorable characters that will outlive him in the years to come. All of this success, however, has centered in front of and around the camera. Not anymore. Penn has retired from the acting business, and is now trying his hand at being a novelist. His first book is titled, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, and it is currently making its laps around the literary world. The book, which is a dystopian satire, focuses on a septic tank salesman who moonlights as a killer contracted by the U.S. government. It is garnering positive and negative reviews. Penn, who is presently on a book tour promoting the book, stated that it finally feels good to stand behind something that is completely his.

Many actors have retired and moved on to other things. Many of them weird, scandalous, inspiring, or mundane. Penn’s retirement is much like Michael Jordon opting for Baseball instead of Basketball. His name is still going to be out there but in a completely different medium. At present the jury is still out on whether this medium will be kind to him. Many critics are praising the book. The New York Times even described it as an enigmatic riddle shrouded in insanity. Of course other critics are saying Penn should return to acting. Penn himself is enjoying the change, and even views it as an interesting new challenge after finishing Bob Honey who just do stuff.

According to Sean Penn his retirement spurred from being burned out. Being an active actor for a number of decades it is no mystery that Penn could grow tired of the business. In his own words he described the fatigue felt in dealing with multiple personalities and endless collaboration. He enjoys the fact that it is just him being able to play with his own creativity. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff will not be Penn’s only book, according to the actor he has something else in the works.
