aye agree...the think tanks are the steering force...and the term "anti-semetic" is misunderstood...today it should mean "anti-arab" as well...people lose track of what words mean.when aye hear it aye purposefully ask my collegues..."are you referring to arabs?"...and they look at me bewildered...then they concede.
Not anti-Semitic. And while "Semitic" does etymologically refer to descendants of Shem (thus encompassing even more than the Jews and the Arabs, who are both descendants of Abraham, who was a descendant of Shem), historically the term "anti-Semitic" has meant predominantly anti-Jewish. There is no large or significant historical use of the term in reference to anti-Arab sentiments, particularly in recent history. Indeed, most of the Arab nations are called, frequently, "anti-Semitic" -- but of course they are unabashedly pro-Arab.
