Sponsoring anti-Islam Hysteria & the “Alt Light”
Shillman, a believer in the Israeli ethno-state, has an effective role in shaping more-or-less mainstream anti-Islamic and anti-immigration movements in the US and Europe. This kind of phony opposition functions as a way to attract support for Israel as an anti-Islamic state among European and Americans who have been disillusioned by Liberal immigration policies.
Shillman is consequently a board member of the conservative anti-Islamic David Horowitz Freedom Centre. He also funds several well-known anti-Islamic or right-wing figures and outlets such as Brigitte Gabriel´s ACT! (which promotes Islamophobia in the US), James O’Keefe‘s Project Veritas, Frontpage magazines (David Horowitz anti-Islamic magazine) and Rebel News (right-wing news outlet owned by Zionist media personality Ezra Levant).2 3 4
Shillman has also funded overt Zionist agitators such as the British Tommy Robinson5 (Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon) and Dutch politician Geert Wilders.6 Such figures have had a defining role in promoting pro-Israel sentiment among immigrant-weary communities.
