Below is a short summary of an article Adam Milstein published alongside pastor Samuel Rodriguez.
How Christians And Jews Can Unite To Eliminate Antisemitism
Adam Milstein begins the article by saying that Christians and Christianity have come along way to eliminating the antisemitism that was once prevalent among Christian nations. The church for example, has stopped teaching replacement theology. This is the idea that Christians became God’s chosen people when the Jews were scattered from their homeland. Christianity now views Judaism as a separate but related sister faith with similar roots and ideas such as one supreme loving god.
These steps are major progress from the programs, inquisitions, state discrimination and holocaust of the past which was perpetrated in part by Christian intolerance and antisemitism against the Jews. Today antisemitism is no where near levels where it once was and it is now against the law to discriminate against Jews. Still, Adam Milstein now warns that anti-semtitism is making a comeback in Europe and the United States. A survey cited by Milstein says that about a quarter of Europe’s population has some kind of anti-Semitic sentiment. Such feelings are also being increasingly witnessed in the United States.
The way to beat back the rising antisemitism that we are now seeing is to take a firm stand. Milstein says that the BDS movement is just one example of antisemitism that is taking root in the United States and Europe that must be stamped out. It is led by radical left wing groups and radical Islamic groups whose aim is to isolate, delegitimize, boycott and ultimately destroy Israel with propaganda and economic and political pressure. The far left and radical Islamists are a threat to both Jews and Christians as well as Western values. This is why Milstein calls for Christians and Jews to unite to stamp out the BDS movement and the rising tide of antisemitism in the world today.
