(Jewish Insider) Following the example of a number of publications that have made the switch in recent months, The New York Times has updated its style guide to replace “anti-Semitism” with “antisemitism,” Jewish Insider has learned, in an effort to gaslight the goyim into thinking that Jews do not see themselves as a race:
The change, which removes the hyphen and lowercases the first S, comes in response to a growing chorus of Jewish activists who have argued that the traditional usage distorts the true meaning of the term. The paper made no public announcement of the switch, which was formally adopted in August, according to Phil Corbett, the associate managing editor for standards at the Times.
While the new spelling by the paper of record may seem merely cosmetic, it reflects a deeper linguistic debate that has long been brewing within the Jewish community. In 2015, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance began advocating for “antisemitism” over “anti-Semitism” — a term popularized in the late 1800s by the right-wing German polemicist Wilhelm Marr — out of concern that the “hyphenated spelling allows for the possibility of something called ‘Semitism.’”
That idea “not only legitimizes a form of pseudo-scientific racial classification that was thoroughly discredited by association with Nazi ideology,” the IHRA said at the time, “but also divides the term, stripping it from its meaning of opposition and hatred toward Jews.”
With the publication of “Antisemitism: Here and Now” in 2019, Deborah Lipstadt, the Holocaust “historian” who was recently nominated to be the Biden administration’s special envoy to monitor and combat antisemitism, helped introduce the discussion to a wider audience. “It should be spelled as one word,” she said in an interview with JI two years ago. “Its inventor wanted it to mean one thing and one thing only: Jew hatred. He coined this word because he want his word to encompass, not just Jews who are religious, but Jews who have abandoned all links to the religion. He wanted to depict Jews as a metaphysical enemy.”
The Anti-Defamation League also favors the un-hyphenated usage, arguing that the spelling is “the best way to refer to hatred toward Jews…”
…The Times, for its part, alluded to the AP’s decision in an internal note to editors on Aug. 16, which Corbett shared with JI. “We are dropping the hyphen and lowercasing the S, which is now the style of The Associated Press and is preferred by many academics and other experts,” the memo explained. “Those who favor antisemitism argue that the hyphenated form, with the uppercase S, may inadvertently lend credence to the discredited notion of Jews as a separate race…”
“…We believe this style best conveys elements of shared history and identity, and reflects our goal to be respectful of all the people and communities we cover,” said the note, which was written by Corbett and Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the Times. “The new style is also consistent with our treatment of many other racial and ethnic terms,” they added. “We recently decided to capitalize ‘Native’ and ‘Indigenous,’ while other ethnic terms like ‘Asian-American’ and ‘Latino’ have always been capitalized…”
“…It’s hard to get everyone to be completely consistent on style issues like this, so you may still see occasional discrepancies,” Corbett acknowledged in an email to JI. “But ‘antisemitism’ is now our official style.”
Since Jews can’t even decide what antisemitism is, no wonder they still can’t decide how to properly spell it.
The “true meaning” of antisemitism is that it means whatever the Jews want it to mean when it’s to their greatest advantage.
Regardless of the spelling, he term “antisemitism” is a powerful Kabbalistic incantation, curse or weapon they all use to ward off any “evil” directed toward them — which is why it must be preserved and protected as uniquely theirs at all costs.
And there’s the rub — Palestinians often point out that they are also “Semites” — allegedly by virtue of their descent through Abraham’s marriage to Katura — and therefore, it is a fallacy to call any Arab, for that matter, an “antisemite.”
Of course, Jews don’t have any legitimate claim to be real Semites either — and even more importantly, they certainly have no legitimate claim to being “Hebrews” or “Israelites” — by their own admission in the 1980 edition of The Jewish Almanac.
The fact that Israelis and Palestinians can readily use each other’s organs for transplantation purposes is prima facie proof that they must be very closely related — which should not be the case if Jews are real Israelites.
They bristle whenever catch them playing this identity game — race or religion — pejoratively calling them “shape shifters” — or “name changers” — but their ability to do so gives them enormous power.
They insist on their ability to pass as White while retaining — among themselves — not only their Jewish identity, but their knowledge that they — emphatically — are not White.
One thing is certain — hypen or not — Jews will continue to be the only people in the world who have been universally hated no matter where they go — even in countries where there are no Jews — not because of their names, noses or funny hats, but because of their behavior –which is contrary to all men — stemming from their rejection of Christ and His people.
