Adam Milstein is a philanthropist and business owner in equal parts. He is originally from that nation of Israel and made his way to sunny Southern California in the early 1980s. He is also an author whose work has appeared in newspapers and blogs across the world. One of the main outputs of his writing is in The Times of Israel where he has been authoring articles for many years.
In Adam Milstein’s most recent article he talks about how Israel can meet its challenges. At first he harkens back to the beginning of the 1900s. At that time the person that was to become the first prime minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion, had established the Revisionist Zionism Ze’ev Jabotinsky. He, along with other Jewish leaders, saw that antisemitism was increasing and so together they started to create a framework for a Jewish state which would be independent in nature.
He also wrote about how Peter Bergson during World War II sought to raise a Jewish army who would join with the Allies in order to fight Nazi Germany. He also sought to raise international awareness about what was happening to Jewish people throughout Europe, Adam Milstein wrote.
He wrote that although there is now an independent Israel it is beset with challenges. One such challenge Adam Milstein wrote about the was the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement. The goal of this movement is to destroy Israel he wrote, by creating a separation between those Jewish people who live inside the State of Israel and those who live outside of it.
Adam Milstein wrote in this article that the Jewish American community, in particular, needs to find new heroes who are like the ones of old. He wants this community to bring about new leaders who will work to ensure that Jewish people are free and safe in the United States and who will form close bonds with those in Israel. He wrote that he meets great leaders in this community all the time is inspired that the next generation will take up the mantle of supporting Jewish people everywhere in the world and supporting the State of Israel.
Every so often, the traveling bugs come calling and you just want to hit the road. To a majority of us, traveling for a few days, a week is all we can take before heading back to the regular grind. A traveled person comes back home feeling refreshed and reinvigorated to take on the hassles and bustles of everyday living. But, that’s was not the case with Doug Levitt. Doug hopped on board a Greyhound bus and decided to spend the next decade exploring the mighty nation. He’s said to have traversed a record 120K miles on these buses.
Doug documents all the unique experiences he encounters while on his adventures to share with his huge fan base. In a recent rendition, he narrates an ordeal which had him sitting next to a neo-Nazi follower. It didn’t take long before, Doug noticed the poorly-done ‘prison’ tattoos on the arms of his co-passenger. Mr. Levitt is a Jew was automatically nauseated and offended by the choice of tattoos the man had but he played it cool and struck a conversation with the lad. After all, there was no escaping the 20 hours of travel separating them with their destination. In a remarkably surprising turn of events, the ex-prisoner was as kind as to offer his fellow traveler, Doug a tuna sandwich to help fight back the hunger pangs on the way. What’s more, the neo-Nazi offered the Jewish man his seat so that Doug could rest his head and sleep a while. Doug Levitt on Twitter.
Poverty inside Rural America
In his conversations with the neo-Nazi, Levitt discerned that the guy was on his way home having served time in one of the correctional facilities around. The ex-convict helped the journalist and photographer, Doug, to get a clear picture of the torments the inmates undergo inside the American prisons. The only way to stay alive for these felons is for them to join forces with their races, the man narrated. That’s how white supremacists are born, in this age of Trump. Once they come out prisons, these men and women tend to become more racist and intolerant to other cultures, just as was the case inside.

Today, 120,000 miles later, Doug is still at it. He’s met countless amazing people in his adventure. The former CNN reporter has also witnessed undocumented poverty and misery in deep America. The mainstream media does very little to detail the situation inside the small American towns. Instead, they concentrate their lenses on the big cities. The web is full of the surreal photos of poor and frustrated Americans, check them out.
