I've been looking at Semitic culture recently. Anti-semite/anti-semitism or
whatever other combination that can be thought of is interesting as it deals
only with a very specific issue in relation to the semites. Well, the
popular usage is to denote something negative about Jews. My question is
whether the word combination seems to be used for the other semitic groups
as well even if it is in lesser amounts.
