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.
