51. oh for pity's sake. perhaps an education on the word anti-semitic is in order.
anti-semitism is a word coined over a hundred and thirty years ago in Germany by one Wilhelm Marr that was expressly created to denote antipathy to Jews. There isn't a dictionary in the world that doesn't hew to that definition. Etymology is a curious things, and words often are not true to their roots.
