Other Semitic peoples will be surprised

Reader comment on item: I Give Up: There Is No Terrorism, There Are No Terrorists

Submitted by BG Davis (United States), Jul 9, 2015 at 07:29

The anti-Israel members of other Semitic groups will be surprised to learn that a dictionary has decided that they are self-hating. (Semite: "a member of any of various ancient and modern peoples originating in southwestern Asia, including the Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Arabs. a member of any of the peoples descended from Shem, the eldest son of Noah.")

And those Jews who oppose the State of Israel on religious or moral grounds will be surprised to learn that they are anti-Semitic.

But True Believers will continue to cling to the concepts they hold dear, no matter how irrational.
