GUEST,Dreaded Guest BS: What is Anti-Semitism? (263* d) RE: BS: What is Anti-Semitism? 26 Apr 03

Well, if you go HERE and type in 'semite', you get the definition I quoted. And my point is, a semite is someone from a particular geographic region of the world. A Jew is someone who takes up a religion after being born ANYWHERE in the world. So, how does criticizing a Jew make you an 'anti-semite'? Sure our dictionaries have been warped to blur the label into a very, very bad thing, but criticizing a Jew does not make you a racist any more than criticizing a Baptist or Catholic does.

THAT is my problem with the label, I just realized. 'Anti-Semite' has come to mean 'racist', and that's nonsense. Or so I think. Once again I beg for enlightenment.

And GWBush has already praised Santorum as being 'inclusive' for propsing this.
