ironically or idiotically? [anti-Semitism?!]

Ironically, Ibish has been accused of being anti-Semitic

To accuse an Arab of anti-Semitism is essentially calling him a self-hater (also a term used by zionist to label those Jews who happen not to share their racists beliefs).

Besides, being anti-anything does not say anything at all about the validity of an argument. For example, calling someone anti-Peruvian does not say anything at all about the views expressed by that person. In fact, calling somebody something proves *nothing* about that person besides that somebody is more comfortable labeling him/her than engaging his/hers arguments.

Basically anybody using the senseless concept of "anti-Semite" is either an idiot, or dishonest, or both.
