 Using the anti-semtic card is getting real old since anyone with a brain and a Internet connection can look up the fact that Semitic does not only include middle east jews. Fact is some of the Federal Reserve Bank heads are Jewish and so are some of the Eurpoean bank heads. does not mean its all jewish plot but fact is some very power jews are involved. Does that make me anti-semitic? No, because it would make me anti-a lot of groups in east africa and arabia.

In a linguistic context the Semitic languages are a subgroup of the larger Afro-Asiatic language family (according to Joseph Greenberg's widely accepted classification) and include, among others: Akkadian, the ancient language of Babylon; Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia; Tigrinya, a language spoken in Eritrea and in northern Ethiopia; Arabic; Aramaic; Canaanite; Ge'ez, the ancient language of the Eritrean and Ethiopian Orthodox scriptures; Hebrew; Maltese; Phoenician or Punic; and South Arabian, the ancient language of Sheba/Saba, which today includes Mehri, spoken by only tiny minorities on the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula.

So if i am being anti-semitic by may statements i would have to be anti-all those groups above.

Jews!  Well thank heavens. 

I thought I might have to blame the federal reserve, or the international bankers, or the Republicans or the Democrats.  Actually it is a pretty lengthy list.  But Jews a monosyllable accusation.

Yup, "the Jews ate my homework."  Wish I had thought of that one 40 years ago.
