in response to reader comment: Other Semitic peoples will be surprised

Our dear BG who seems to be an avid reader of tablighee websites is surprised so let us help him

The anti-Israel members of other Semitic groups will be surprised to learn that a dictionary has decided that they are self-hating.

Let me paraphrase what you wrote: Sunni Muslim Arabs that hate Shia and Christian Arabs must be a bunch of self-haters right our dear BG al-Tablighee?

(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.")

This is nonsense. Did you make up this definition our dear BG? But I will give you a chance provide us with a real dictionary that defines the word Semite and the following will not be accepted as evidence:

1. Your Mullah told you so

2. Zakir Naik says so

And here is how the Arabs define the word Samiyya or Semitic

http://www.almaany.com/ar/dict/ar-ar/%D8%B3%D8%A7%D9%85%D9%8A%D8%A9/

ساميّة: ( اسم )

مجموعة من اللُّغات كانت شائعة منذ أزمان بعيدة في بلاد آسيا وأفريقيا سواء منها ما عفت آثاره ، وما لا يزال باقيًا حتى الآن ، ومن أشهر لغاتها : الأكاديّة والفينيقيّة والعبريّة والآراميّة والعربيّة

And it means a group of languages..... the likes of al-Akadiyya, al-Finiqiyya, Hebrew, Arabic and Aramiac. How come you did not know that?

What does Hebrew and Arabic and Syro-Aramaic have in common? They belong to the same group of languages called the semitic languages so do languges hate our dear BG al-Tablighee?

But most damaging to your case is that the same dictionary defines اللاَّساميَّة or al la Samiyya or anti-Semitism as

مبدأ أو موقف من يعادون اليهود ويعملون على اتِّخاذ إجراءات تمييز عنصريّ ضدَّهم اتُّهم بتبنِّي اللاَّساميّة والتحريض عليها

Or stance or believe of the enemies of the Jews that believe that the Jews are racially inferior and should be subjected to discrimination

Your Arab masters agree with this definition

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

Who says that they are? Enlightem me this is a difference of opinion and no more

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

So you seem to agree when the so called Allah calls the Jews: Pigs and monkeys and not just Muslims but most Muslims repeat this nonsense then there is nothing wrong with that because and to quote you "True believers will continue to to cling blah...blah....blah?

I call it malacious hate and stupidity

Submitting....
