English[edit]

Noun[edit]

antisemitism (uncountable)

  1. Alternative form of anti-Semitism
    • 2019 July 24, David Austin Walsh, “Flirting With Fascism”, in Jewish Currents[1]:
      Facing a backlash over the use of the term “cosmopolitan,” [Josh] Hawley later defended himself against accusations of antisemitism on Twitter as “an ardent advocate of the state of Israel and the Jewish people.” But this conflation of the state of Israel and the Jewish people is the entire point. To today’s far right, Israel is a firm ally against Islam, while “cosmopolitans,” many of whom just happen to be Jewish, are suspect.

Usage notes[edit]

Often preferred by writers who want to emphasize that the historic usage of the term as it originated in Germany is specific to Jews, not to Semites generally.
