<Indogutsu> People need to stop using the term "anti-Semitic" already. Not all Semitics are Jews, and not all Jews are Semitics. The word "Semitic" means anyone from the Arabian peninsula (Turkish, Syrians, Israelis, Palestinians, Saudis, Iraqis, Yemenis, etc.) Whereas the European Jews (Ashkenazim and Sephardim) aren't Semitic at all. So a better word for "anti-Jewish" would be "Judophobic."
<Yuri> Fear of Judo!
<Indogutsu> It comes from "Judea," the biblical name for modern-day Israel.
<BurnGriffith> Enough of your semantics, semite. :p
