Anti-Semetic

Thu May 09, 2002 11:29 am

It seems that there is a common misunderstanding with the term Anti-Semetic. The ancient Hebrews are just one of several Semetic peoples. Other Semetic peoples include the ancient Sumerians, and Arabs. I'm really not sure today how many Jews actually have semetic blood in them. The Arabs of Palestine are more accurately described as Semetic than the Jews of Israel. Ironically, one could call Israel Anti-Semetic, in that they seem to be wiping out the Arabs.

Wiping out the Arabs, really cba? And, doesn't it make the Arabs anti-Semitic for blowing up as many Jews as they can?

Wiping out the Arabs-what an absurdity on your part. And the sad part is, you really believe it, don't you?

Oh, you can't tell me Sharon is doing this all in defense. Now I'm not saying that I support the Arab suicide bombers, but this would not be happening if Israel had not expanded into Palestinian settlements. I recently read that Israel is moving into the Palesitnian section of Jerusalem and wiping out the Palestinian settlements, building new apartments and homes for Jewish settlers.

Semetic really mean all ME people. Israel BTW is about 50% semitic (Sephardic Jews of ME origin vs Ashkenazi Jews of Euro origin).

But the present-day term anti-semitic has morphed into meaning anti-Jewish or anti-Israeli.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

I'd like to see your source for this claim. Could you post it? Until you do, I take it as an absurd and outrageous lie.

Anybody can make up stuff like that. So where did you get that info?

Isn't it about time we gave up on all the Israel v. Palestine posts? All they do is lead to arguments, and the same ones keep going on and on and on. There will ALWAYS be those who support Israel, and those who support Palestine. We KNOW this, I don't think there is any point to this whole subject of threads. Yes it is good to have discussions and debates, but the whole Middle East one is getting very irritating. I think all Israel v. Palestine threads should be deleted. They cause nothing but trouble in the forums.

Goodie.

Why is it that Cba has to have links to back up his statement yet I see you and other pro-Israel people making claims and without any support to back it up?
I support the women’s movement up and down!

We'll back up our statements. Why are you so afraid to make Cba back up his claim? Because it just might be false?

I'll say it again, I want him to back up this claim:

I recently read that Israel is moving into the Palesitnian section of Jerusalem and wiping out the Palestinian settlements, building new apartments and homes for Jewish settlers.

If he read it so recently, what's the big deal with putting the link to where he found it? Its not that hard is it? I could do it in thirty seconds if you asked me to link up a site that I used.

Tbar220 - no problem, here you go: http://www.thescotsman.co.uk/international.cfm?id=501842002

The relevant section states:

Most Palestinians see nothing to celebrate on Jerusalem Day, especially since Jewish settlers are increasingly encroaching on their neighbourhoods with the support of the municipality and government. Yesterday, a group of settlers took over yet another building in the Sheikh Jarrah area, which was exclusively Palestinian for half a century.

Sheikh Jarrah is being transformed, West Bank-style, into a mixed area where settlers have the political and coercive power. They have ambitiously called the house, tucked in between Arab residences, the "Simon’s Heritage Neighbourhood". "We aspire that it will become a prosperous neighbourhood with a lot of people," said Tahel Elinson, a settler activist.

The dilapidated building with the Israeli flag is the first offshoot of another "neighbourhood" in Sheikh Jarah, called "Simon the Just", where three hilltop settler houses are guarded by two security booths. For the benefit of the settlers of "Simon the Just", an asphalt road was paved last month to access their buildings.

The left fork of the road, which accesses a larger number of Arab houses, remains unpaved. "They want to take our neighbourhood house by house," said a Palestinian woman who asked not to be identified. "They don’t want co-existence, they just want all the land."

Comprehensive Sanctions Against Israel NOW!

Goodbye, I recently asked for just that, but the powers-that-be don't seem interested in giving it a try, so I guess we're stuck with it.
