anti-Semitic is anti-Jewish

Reader comment on item: The Paterson 'Protocols'

Submitted by Paul (United Kingdom), Oct 1, 2005 at 05:54

Saying that anti-semitic applies to all semites is a bit odd. The term has taken on a clear meaning that only applies to Jews. Words mean what they mean to most people, and most people know the Nazis and such were/are anti-semitic. Its is not inaccurate or misleading, everyone knows what the term means. You're going to claim next that Arabs can't be anti-semitic, which of course is a load of rubbish. Theres nothing wrong with the term, and it's not misleading anyone ...
