Read the whole context pls , not one part to justify slight approval..Ok 2 yr old will agree
Wow, thanks for informing me of something I already admitted to being in the wrong about. Also something for which I had already expressed my views
for under the corrected context.
If you want me to take the whole context and break it down, maybe you should include the reason this statement was made, and not just the statement
itself. Wouldn't that help to get the actual context? You are asking people to discuss a statement taken out of context while telling them to take it
in its whole context...hmmmm.
“Anti-Semitism does NOT signify opposition to Semitism...It is an expression we use effectively as a SMEARWORD, used to brand anyone who brings
criticism against us.”
This is an opinion. It does not imply fact. As I stated in both my previous posts, I agree that anti-Semitism is used to describe people who are
against Jews, and not with it's correct connotation. That's my perception of the world I live in. But I don't know how it is in Africa, Asia,
Antarctica, or anywhere outside the world I am able to observe. Maybe in those places everyone
uses 'anti-semitic' in its proper connotation.
Unless you can view the world in its entirety, this statement cannot actually be proven true or false, or right or wrong.
Also, since I don't have the context of this statement, I cannot know who is being described by the pronoun "we". Without this knowledge, it is
impossible to even begin to argue for or against this point. Therefore the only response to the core idea of the OP is 'inconclusive'.
"THERE IS NO SUCH THING.”
This statement could be proven wrong. "I hate Semitic's and/or Semitism!" This is not my actual view, but the law of probability says that there is at
least one person in the world that has this view. And if even one person has this view, this statement is wrong.
Satisfied? No? Then grab Snickers...
