Zionist are FAKE Jews, big, no HUGE difference. Unfortunately, they are lumped together with real Jews by the mainstream media. https://www.jpost.com/diaspora/antisemitism/article-695378Encyclopedia Britannica: Arab, Semitic people can't be called antisemitic
Encyclopedia Britannica's online entry does not offer an alternative term for prejudice by Arabs and Semitic people against Jews.
Antisemitism "is especially inappropriate as a label for the anti-Jewish prejudices, statements, or actions of Arabs or other Semites," Encyclopedia Britannica says in its definition of antisemitism.
It is unclear from the article's edit history when this part of the definition was added. Encyclopedia Britannica's online entry does not offer an alternative term for prejudice by Arabs and Semitic people against Jews."Although the term [antisemitism] now has wide currency, it is a misnomer, since it implies a discrimination against all Semites. Arabs and other peoples are also Semites, and yet they are not the targets of antisemitism as it is usually understood,"
asserts the online encyclopedia.
Excluding Arabs and Semitic people from being labeled antisemitic because of their "Semitism" is what is called a "etymological fallacy" -- When the archaic root words or original meaning of a term are used to make an argument about the current meaning or even the generally accepted definition.
It is a common argument made by some that their actions or beliefs are not antisemitic, because they themselves are Semitic.
The term "Semitic" can be used in a technical-linguistic sense or to refer to ethnic groups. Hebrew, Arabic and Aramaic are all considered Semitic languages.
While Encyclopedia Britannica calls the term "antisemitism" a "misnomer," it has historically only implied a dislike and/or hatred of Jews because it was coined in the 19th century with this sole considered meaning. It was never intended to apply to all Semitic peoples.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), formerly known as the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, is an international Jewish non-governmental organization based in the United States specializing in civil rights law. It was founded in late September 1913 by the Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, a Jewish service organization, in the wake of the contentious conviction for murder of Leo Frank. ADL subsequently split from B'nai B'rith and continued as an independent US section 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Jonathan Greenblatt, a former Silicon Valley tech executive and former Obama administration official, succeeded Abraham Foxman as national director in July 2015. Foxman had served in the role since 1987.
ADL headquarters are located in New York City. The ADL has 25 regional offices in the United States including a Government Relations Office in Washington, DC, as well as an office in Israel and staff in Europe. In its 2019 annual information Form 990, ADL reported total revenues of $92 million, the vast majority from contributions and grants. Its total operating revenue is reported at $80.9 million.
Anti-Defamation League: Amazon’s Twitch Should Censor Even MoreThe far-left Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has said that Twitch, the Amazon-owned video streaming platform, should invest even more resources into censorship tools — even after the platform twice banned Donald Trump
, first temporarily during the campaign season, and then permanently in January.
Twitch streams are usually accompanied by a live chat feature, which can be censored by moderators appointed by the streamer in question. It is these community-moderated chatrooms that the ADL is targeting.
