Semites

Jews are alleged to be Semites, victims of those awful Anti-Semites; that they are also God's Chosen People, especially if they are Zionist crazies. It is not true of course. In fact some of them are Semitic; most are not.

If you doubt this idea look at Jews Are Not Semites, an article based on sources from Jews in particular an eminent geneticist & Jew Eran Elhaik [ or Eran Elhaik ex Wiki ]

The Wiki in one of its more obscurantist pieces tells us deep inside that Jews and Palestinian Arabs are closely related. Ashkenazi Jews have some connection as well. Those are said to have originated in Russia. They are also very much Zionist crazies with a track record of mass murder to prove it. Gaza Massacre I, Gaza Massacre II & Gaza Massacre III are cases in point. Gaza Massacre IV is pending; this  fourth assault on the weak, the women, the children has not happened yet, in January 2017 but it will. Zionist crazies know they can do it & get away with it because Western governments are Zionist Occupation Governments [ ZOGs ].

We might also wonder why Jews find themselves hated in so many different places, by so many people. A track record of corruption, thieving, arrogance, political manipulation makes plenty of reason. It is why they have been kicked out of 109 countries. An honest Jew,  Gilad Atzmon has something about the matter at:-

The Palestine Liberation Movement is not about Anti-Semitism

 

Semites ex Wiki
Semitic people
or Semitic cultures (from the biblical "Shem", Hebrew: שם‎‎) was a term for an ethnic, cultural or racial group who speak or spoke the Semitic languages.[2][3][4][5] The terminology was first used in the 1770s by members of the Göttingen School of History, who derived the name from Shem, one of the three sons of Noah in the Book of Genesis.[6] The term "Semitic", together with the parallel terms Hamitic and Japhetic, is now largely obsolete outside of linguistics.[7][8][9] However, in archaeology, the term is sometimes used informally as "a kind of shorthand" for ancient Semitic-speaking peoples.[9]

Ethnicity and race
In the racialist classifications of Carleton S. Coon, the Semitic peoples were considered to be members of the Caucasian race, not dissimilar in appearance to the neighbouring Indo-European, Northwest Caucasian, Berber and Kartvelian-speaking peoples of the region.[10] As language studies are interwoven with cultural studies, the term also came to describe the religions (ancient Semitic and Abrahamic) and Semitic-speaking ethnicities as well as the history of these varied cultures as associated by close geographic and linguistic distribution.[11]

Some recent genetic studies have found (by analysis of the DNA of Semitic-speaking peoples) that they have some common ancestry. Although no significant common mitochondrial results have been found, Y-chromosomal links between modern Semitic-speaking peoples of the Middle East like Arabs, Hebrews, Mandaeans, Samaritans and Assyrians have shown links, despite differences contributed from other groups (see Y-chromosomal Aaron).

A DNA study of Jews and Palestinian Arabs (including Bedouins) found that these were more closely related to each other than to people of the Arabian Peninsula, Ethiopian Semitic-speaking people (Amharas, Tigrayans , Harari and Tigre people), and the Arabic speakers of North Africa.[12][13]

Genetic studies indicate that modern Jews (Ashkenazi, Sephardic and Mizrahi specifically), Levantine Arabs, Assyrians, Samaritans, Maronites, Druze, Mandaeans, and Mhallami, all have an ancient indigenous common Near Eastern heritage which can be genetically mapped back to the ancient Fertile Crescent, but often also display genetic profiles distinct from one another, indicating the different histories of these peoples.[14]

Antisemitism and Semiticisation
The terms "anti-Semite" or "antisemitism" came by a circuitous route to refer more narrowly to anyone who was hostile or discriminatory towards Jews in particular.[15]

Anthropologists of the 19th century such as Ernest Renan readily aligned linguistic groupings with ethnicity and culture, appealing to anecdote, science and folklore in their efforts to define racial character. Moritz Steinschneider, in his periodical of Jewish letters Hamaskir (3 (Berlin 1860), 16), discusses an article by Heymann Steinthal[16] criticising Renan's article "New Considerations on the General Character of the Semitic Peoples, In Particular Their Tendency to Monotheism".[17] Renan had acknowledged the importance of the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia, Israel etc. but called the Semitic races inferior to the Aryan for their monotheism, which he held to arise from their supposed lustful, violent, unscrupulous and selfish racial instincts. Steinthal summed up these predispositions as "Semitism", and so Steinschneider characterised Renan's ideas as "anti-Semitic prejudice".[18]

In 1879 the German journalist Wilhelm Marr, in a pamphlet called Der Weg zum Siege des Germanenthums über das Judenthum ("The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism"), began the politicisation of the term by speaking of a struggle between Jews and Germans. He accused them of being liberals, a people without roots who had Judaized Germans beyond salvation. In 1879 Marr's adherents founded the "League for Anti-Semitism"[19] which concerned itself entirely with anti-Jewish political action.

Objections to the usage of the term, such as the obsolete nature of the term Semitic as a racial term and the exclusion of discrimination against non-Jewish Semitic peoples, have been raised since at least the 1930s.[20][21]
