[quote=gilliam]What textbook are you referring to? I don’t know any textbook that says that.
Anyway, for word definitions we normally go to a dictionary.
Well ‘Anti’ means against, and ‘Semitic’ means pertaining to a member of a Semitic race.
That’s Jews and Arabs. Both races are Semitic. Arabic is a Semitic language.
Sort of like how ‘Anti-Gaelic’ would be against the Irish and Scots.
