" I believe he is deeply Arab and antisemitic." Check and re-check what semitic means... both as languange and by the ethnology/race term... Arabs comes from semitic roots... therefore how can you be antisemitic if you're an Arab? Then look closer again in history... It is not the Jews that the Arabs resent, but rather the state of Israel... Because for what it worth, the Jews an Muslims have fought side by side either on territorial wars or religious wars..(euh, reads the crusades... Jews and Muslims fought the Crusader) The feud between Jews and Arabs on palestine is because the founding of Israel that is seen as a broken promises by the british and an invasion to their land... That's why just after WW II that the Jews sees Arabs as their enemy and vice versa... Now why there are a lot of Muslim cry kill the Jews? well that's the cry of clueless oppressed people that are driven by fear... the same fear as you have... and if there are some prick quoting that there are phrases on the Koran to kill Jews, just slap him/her and tell em that if they are a true Muslim... they should know better that the Koran could be interpreted in many ways... and here's a translated verse that I always remembered; "For you your religion, and for me mine" And my perception is that everyone choose his/her faith... and it's up to Allah to judge... or it could be that every faith is to be respected because it is not in our capability to judge truthfully other's faith... but to the baddies it may seen as my religion is mine and your's is faulty so it must be destroyed... yet only one with murderous intent could think of that!!!
