Subject: Re: Semitic languages and peoples; Anti-Semites
I have information, but not a citation. Sorry. Maybe you
can track this down.
What I remember is reading recently (that is, probably in 1996),
that the terms "anti-Semite" and "anti-Semitism" were deliberate
coinages by a Jew-hater who hoped to make his prejudice sound
more respectable, and that the coinage occurred in Germany
about a century ago. Good luck, Rick.
