After a period of successfully fighting antisemitism, the Jewish community is facing an even bigger threat as a section of radical Muslims who have always been on a mission to delegitimize Israel gets support from the west. Even though both groups can never be on the same foot when it comes to other matters, they share a common ground when it comes to hatred against the Jews. In respect to that, they tend to put their differences aside and come together so they can fuel and take anti semitism a notch higher.
According to an article on his JNS profile, Adam Milstein says that they are able to spread the venomous spew of prejudice against Jews by sharing the ideas of racism, hate and bigotry on social media platforms and other areas that they are able to influence. Their tactics seem to be taking a turn for the worse as they stone women under the watchful eye of the public, execute gays, infringe human rights and do whatever it is they can to fight feminists.
Unfortunately, they seem to have the support of individuals and groups which should be taking action against them. For instance, Adam Milstein gives an example of how a well-known feminist leader and one of the Women’s march on Washington organizers openly displays her hatred towards Jews. In one encounter Linda referred to a Jewish journalist as a member of the anti-Semitic alt-right while on another she opened her public speech by praising Siraj Wajjah who was one of the 1993 world trade center bombing conspirators. Even though she is supposed to be a feminist, Linda supports and even praises Saudi Arabia for how it treats women. Despite all these negative actions, Linda is still considered a role model in the community and it is sad because such occurrences create a breeding ground for antisemitism.
