    The Merriam Webster dictionary defines semite as 1a: "member of any of a number of peoples of southwestern Asian including Phoenicians, Akkadian, Hebrews, and Arabs. b: a descendant of these people. 2: a member of a modern people speaking a Semitic language. How in the hell can Arabs be accused of being anti-semitic if they are Semites themselves? Why don't you just use "anti-Jewish" when that is what is meant. By the way, not all Jews are descended from Semitic people, converts being an example. This is all such a load of bull crap. Just because Jews have been victims of aggression in the past (as have other peoples) doesn't make them virtuous. Jews are JUST LIKE ANYONE ELSE, some decent, some shite. JP
