ad hom•i•nem Pronunciation Key (hm-nm, -nm)
adj. Appealing to personal considerations rather than to logic or reason: Debaters should avoid ad hominem arguments that question their opponents' motives.

Isn't the point that 1 million Arabs live in Israel but Jews have been 'ethnically cleansed' out of all the Islamic countries and now face 'ethnic cleansing' by the so called 'Palestinian' Arabs?
