Origin and usage in the context of xenophobia Etymology statute of the Antisemitic League The origin of "antisemitic" terminologies is found in the responses of Moritz Steinschneider to the views of Ernest Renan.
As Alex Bein writes: Steinschneider used this phrase to characterise the French philosopher Ernest Renan's false ideas about how " Semitic races " were inferior to " Aryan races "'.
He coined the phrase "the Jews are our misfortune" which would later be widely used by Nazis. Hess, the term was originally used by its authors to "stress the radical difference between their own 'antisemitism' and earlier forms of antagonism toward Jews and Judaism. Observed from a non-religious perspective in which he used the word Semitismus interchangeably with the word Judentum to denote both "Jewry" the Jews as a collective and "jewishness" the quality of being Jewish, or the Jewish spirit.
The pamphlet became very popular, and in the same year he founded the Antisemiten-Liga League of Antisemites apparently named to follow the "Anti-Kanzler-Liga" Anti-Chancellor League. So far as can be ascertained, the word was first widely printed inwhen Marr published Zwanglose Antisemitische Hefte, and Wilhelm Scherer used the term Antisemiten in the January issue of Neue Freie Presse.
The Jewish Encyclopedia reports, "In Februarya correspondent of the Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums speaks of 'Anti-Semitism' as a designation which recently came into use "Allg. On 19 Julythe editor says, 'This quite recent Anti-Semitism is hardly three years old.
In this sense, the term is a misnomer, since there are many speakers of Semitic languages e. ArabsEthiopiansand Assyrians who are not the objects of anti-Semitic prejudices, while there are many Jews who do not speak Hebrewa Semitic language.
Though 'antisemitism' has been used to describe prejudice against people who speak other Semitic languages, the validity of such usage has been questioned. Some scholars favor the unhyphenated form because, "If you use the hyphenated form, you consider the words 'Semitism', 'Semite', 'Semitic' as meaningful" whereas "in antisemitic parlance, 'Semites' really stands for Jews, just that.
According to Carroll, who first cites O'Hare and Bauer on "the existence of something called 'Semitism'", "the hyphenated word thus reflects the bipolarity that is at the heart of the problem of antisemitism". Because of this bad nature: It was anti-liberal, racialist and nationalist.
It promoted the myth that Jews conspired to 'judaise' the world ; it served to consolidate social identity; it channeled dissatisfactions among victims of the capitalist system; and it was used as a conservative cultural code to fight emancipation and liberalism.
According to Lewis, antisemitism is marked by two distinct features: Jews are judged according to a standard different from that applied to others, and they are accused of "cosmic evil.
The United States Department of State states that "while there is no universally accepted definition, there is a generally clear understanding of what the term encompasses. It also lists ways in which attacking Israel could be antisemitic, and states that denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.
A spokesperson said that it had never been regarded as official and that the agency did not intend to develop its own definition. The definition has been adopted by the European Parliament Working Group on Antisemitism,  in it was adopted by the United States Department of State in it was adopted in the Operational Hate Crime Guidance of the UK College of Policing  and was also adopted by the Campaign Against Antisemitism,  and in it was adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance making it the most widely adopted definition of antisemitism around the world.
Judaism, there is the enemy! Cuza organized the Alliance Anti-semitique Universelle in Bucharest. In the period before World War IIwhen animosity towards Jews was far more commonplace, it was not uncommon for a person, an organization, or a political party to self-identify as an antisemite or antisemitic.
The early Zionist pioneer Leon Pinskera professional physician, preferred the clinical-sounding term Judeophobia to antisemitism, which he regarded as a misnomer. The word Judeophobia first appeared in his pamphlet " Auto-Emancipation ", published anonymously in German in Septemberwhere it was described as an irrational fear or hatred of Jews.
According to Pinsker, this irrational fear was an inherited predisposition. Judeophobia is a psychic disorder. As a psychic disorder it is hereditary, and as a disease transmitted for two thousand years it is incurable Thus have Judaism and Jew-hatred passed through history for centuries as inseparable companions Having analyzed Judeophobia as an hereditary form of demonopathy, peculiar to the human race, and represented Jew-hatred as based upon an inherited aberration of the human mind, we must draw the important conclusion, that we must give up contending against these hostile impulses, just as we give up contending against every other inherited predisposition.
It has no desire to have its rights restricted or to be provoked in the future by parasites of the Jewish race. This marked a full circle shift in usage, from an era just decades earlier when "Jew" was used as a pejorative term.On the Jews and Their Lies; La France juive; Protocols of the Elders of Zion; The International Jew; The American Mercury; National Vanguard; Mein Kampf; Zweites Buch.
