Why Adam Milstein Ties Together Radical Muslims And The Radical Left

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

Adam Milstein is a writer for the Jewish News Syndicate (JNS). He is also an entrepreneur who owns a company in the real estate industry, Hager Pacific. He is originally from Israel and has lived in California for the past 35 years or so. He is very involved in the Jewish-American community and often speaks out on issues that affect that community and the nation of Israel.

A recent article of Adam Milstein’s on JNS was about how radical Muslims are trying to destroy Israel as well as whip up flames of anti-Semitism around the world. He wrote that anti-Semitism has long been a part of the radical right and he sees it increasingly growing on the radical left as well in recent years. He says that all three of these groups are now sharing their tactics with one another so that they can destroy the Jewish people and Israel.

He says the joining up of radical Muslims and those on the far left started to appear in Europe. Adam Milstein says those efforts are now starting to grow in the United States and Canada over the past few years. Of course radical Muslims believe a lot of things are appropriate that the radical left doesn’t believe in, such as stoning women, putting gay people to death, and being very much against feminism among them. However, these two groups put things like this aside, he wrote, so that they can attain common goals such as nationalism, destroying freedom of speech, and engaging in anti-Semitism.

Adam Milstein says that those people on the radical left have a very misguided view of Israel. They consider the nation of Israel to be a colonial oppressor in the Middle East which unfairly targets Muslims. They also believe that Jewish people have a secret organization which is causing conflicts around the world and in the Middle East in particular. One particular person he says shows the alliance between the radical left and radical Muslims is Linda Sarsour, one of the women who organized the Women’s March on Washington D.C. He points out that she has praised radical Muslims such as Siraj Wajjah who is suspected of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Stream Really Cares For All

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

A least generous state just found the most generous giver, the philanthropist might not be the most generous by numbers but surely by heart, ranks among the top. This is the state of Texas and the unique activities and relationship that Stream Energy Patch is creating in that state. Philanthropy is not a matter of giving because you have so much but it is in essence giving because the other person has so little. These words are put into practice every day and it can be said confidently it is in the DNA of the company itself.

The news that Stream Energy Patch was starting a philanthropic arm in its working was greeted with enthusiasm and great admiration among the Texas resident, but everybody knew that would finally come to pass. The great philanthropic deeds and the culture that the company had built was only fair and right to formalize the whole philanthropic business. Formalizing they surely did and Stream Cares was finally born. A catchy name anyone would presume but it really speaks to the heart and soul of the company itself.

The patch cared when Hurricane Harvey brought 56 inches of rain with it and brought businesses and homes to their knees. When the whole world was watching helplessly, Stream jumped and spoke aloud for the Texas resident and said: “Stream cares”. Donating foodstuffs  and helping the homeless it showed its true nature.

The homeless children in Texas also know that Stream cares. The partnership with Hope Supply is a true testament to this great virtue. Stream Energy paid entrances for over 1000 children and covered for their meals at an annual local water event. To buttresses, this words Stream Energy has been giving much-needed supplies and donations for the past 4 years.

Red Cross has one or two to say whether Stream cares or not. The last 15000 dollars donation is something of a goodwill towards the organization. The victims from North Texas  are sure to raise their voices on this debate of Steam Energy and Steam Care. When the Tornado hit them in 2016 Steam Energy was there ready to lift them back to their feet. The partnership between the Salvation Army, Stream Energy associates and the company itself was something from a storybook. The company showed the meaning of philanthropy with operation Once In A Lifetime by helping the less fortunate veterans  proving once again Stream really cares.

George Soros – A Man Who Makes A Difference

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

George Soros is a man who is known throughout the world. In Europe, he is known as the driving force behind a wide range of investment activities and business ventures. In the United States, he is perhaps best known for his social activism and political support, mainly for the Democratic Party. In Asia and Africa, he is known for his immense philanthropy and humanitarian work. None of this fame however is what George Soros started to have when he started his life in humble beginnings in Budapest Hungary, nor did he ever dream as he fought for survival as a Jew during the Nazi occupation of the city that he would one day be one of the richest and most influential men in the world.

Born in 1930, he came from a family which taught him the value of a dollar, the importance of a good moral compass, and the vitality of surviving in the face of oppression. He came out of the dark time of the Nazi occupation with a sense of social justice, and a changed world view. He soon immigrated to England, where he worked as a railroad porter and waiter while putting himself through the London School of Economics. From LSE, he earned a degree that got him in the door of his first job in the financial sector, working at a merchant bank.

In 1969, he moved to New York City, where he started his first fund, now known as the Quantum Fund, with little more than Twelve Million Dollars and a reputation of success he brought with him from Europe. George Soros soon grew that fund into one of the most prosperous of its time. Even today Soros Fund management, his family firm, carries more than $30B in assets, and he still provides key insights as to how the firm’s capital is handled. Read more on nytimes.com

He is not just a man behind the money; he is also the money behind a lot of social changes that have occurred in the world in the last 30 years. A man who believes strongly in the rights of the individual and that governments work for the people not the other way around, he has become a major part of many activism movements and political campaigns over the years. He also works with many charitable groups and humanitarian aid and rights organizations overseas, particularly in Africa and Asia to help those who are impoverished and under the grip of low education and limited heath improvement options.

He recently hired Dawn Fitzpatrick, one of the most success women in the financial arena as Chief Investment Officer for Soros Fund Management. She will be the seventh CIO since 2000, but George notes that it has been a task to find the right person for the job to ensure that the firm success keeps going for many years to come. It is just one more way that George Soros plans for the future, both in his business dealings and in his desire to make the world a better place. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.

Adam Milstein Speaks About Hager Pacific Properties And Guiding Business Principles

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Adam Milstein was interviewed by Ideamensch not long ago to share ideas with young entrepreneurs on how they could succeed in real estate. He’s a Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties, a real estate investment firm he co-founded years ago along with David Hager that owns and leases many properties across California, Illinois and Texas. He’s also the founder of the Milstein Family Foundation, a philanthropic organization that gives back to the Jewish American and emphasizes three pillars of active philanthropy, path life impact and philanthropic synergy. Along with the foundation he’s co-founded Hebrew learning program Sifriyat Pijama B’America.

 

Adam Milstein told Ideamensch that the idea for Hager Pacific Properties came to him while he was attending graduate school and determined none of the other jobs being offered to him compensated him properly. He and his friend David Hager, who he has mentioned as the most influential person in his life decided to enter commercial real estate brokering and in time they acquired enough assets to start an independent venture. Milstein says he never fully knows just what his day is going to consist of, but says that more structure comes from accumulating assets and being involved in philanthropy. But he also says you have to be willing to do much of the work yourself in the business and have patience because it takes time to make profits in real estate.

 

Prior to founding Hager Pacific Properties Adam Milstein worked alongside his father in the building framing trade in Israel. His family had moved to Israel from Latin America back in 1948 and Adam is the oldest of three sons. He served in the military during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 and was in Ariel Sharon’s unit that invaded Egypt. He married Gila Elgrably upon returning from the war and also attended the Technion – Israeli Institute of Technology. Three years after completing his bachelor’s degree at the Technion he relocated his family to the US and received his MBA from USC. In addition to founding Hager Pacific Properties and the Milstein Foundation, Adam Milstein is also Chairman of the Israeli-American Council and is on the boards of AIPAC, StandWithUs, Jerusalem U, Birthright Israel and many other groups.
