Reader comment on item: How Central Is Muslim Anti-Semitism?

Submitted by Bo Smith (United States), Oct 8, 2006 at 10:29

It's all very PC (I use the term disparagingly) to say that the arabs are anti-semitic; but, by all definitions, the arabs themselves are semitic, while other middle-eastern Muslims, the Persians, for example, are not. Let us not be PC. Let us say what is factual: Muslims are against the Jews. Further, many Jews are not semitic, either. "Semite" is a term that describes tribal peoples including arabs and hebrews. Many jews are neither, whereas some christians are.
