To make sure no one understands his observer's position, this is not the be-all, know-it-all answer to Reader Prashant's inquest on any distinction between anti-Semitism versus Muslim hatred for things Jewish in general, and the Jewish People in specificity.
In all started, according to the Hebrew Hoy Writ, in the beginning, when the offspring of the serpent were cursed for prompting the fall of mankind. It was the circumstance of the rebellion that humanity endures until today that came as a result of the serpent's hatred for the things of God, an eternal condition.
Abraham (then a Gentile before there was a Jewish distinction) chose to believe God and follow Him, becoming Hebrew (not Jewish) thereby setting his children, Isaac and Jacob on a course that would be the commencement of the further hatred for the things of God and when Jacob was named Israel, hatred for Israel.
The label 'anti-Semitism comes from the son of Noah, an antecedent of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; his name was Shem, and the variation of the name is used to sling epithets against the Children of Jacob. Later, a Jewish maiden gave birth to a son named Emmanuel (God is with us), who later declared 'salvation is of the Jews.' This resultant hatred is displayed today as generally anti-Semitic, the European variation coming from the final repulse of the non-Arabic Muslim invasion and the Jewish Diaspora's search that led to finding America after being cast out of Spain in 1492 for being Jewish.
Islam, and the Muslim community was given the Quran to believe they are the replacement for the Gospel message of the Savior and salvation in the Name of the Jewish Messiah. This hatred is what fuels the anti-Semitic approach following the Quran dictates, that even though Israelis are 'Children of the Book,' they are to be held in disdain (hatred) for not abandoning their faith and randomly submitting to Islam.
This is this believer's position in the Jewish Messiah take of the general hatred of things Jewish by humanity (anti-Semitism); and the more specific hatred by Muslims for the Jewish people not abandoning their Hebrew God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, later to become the people of Israel.
