  1. The reason Dean needs to get a clue is because of his absurd (and typical) charge against Maliki, the usual crap that anyone who dares challenge Israeli policy is accused of being an anti-Semite.

    On the semantic point, I think it’s a pointless battle. No matter what a “Semite” is, “anti-Semitism” is clearly used the world around to mean anti-Jewish prejudice. Which, for all I know, Maliki is, but not because of his remarks on Lebanon.

    The irony is that anti-Arab prejudice, in the U.S. and Europe, is far more prevalent and significant than anti-Jewish prejudice (anti-Semitism). Because anti-Arab prejudice is the prejudice of the powerful, whereas the majority of anti-Jewish prejudice these days is the prejudice of the powerless (thugs painting swastikas on synagogues, etc.).
