Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Do you believe that all lives are worth saving? Do you respect all nationalities including Palestinians, Syrians, Lebanese, Jordanians, Saudi Arabians, Yemenis, Egyptians, Sudanese, Ethiopians, Eritreans, Djiboutis, Qataris, Turks, Libyans, Iraqis, and Iranians? If you do then you are a pro-semite. If you have friends that belong to any of these groups listed, then you are pro-semite. If you like any of the languages spoken by any of these groups, or their shared history, or their cultures, then you are a pro-semite.
Let’s take a look at the definition of the word: semite.
In studies of linguistics and ethnology, the term Semitic was first used to refer to a family of languages native to West Asia (the Middle East). The languages evolved and spread to Asia Minor, North Africa, the Horn of Africa and Malta, and are now referred to cumulatively as the Semitic languages. The languages include the ancient and modern forms of Ahlamu; Akkadian (including Assyrian and Babylonian dialects); Amharic; Amalekite; Ammonite; Amorite; Arabic; Aramaic/Syriac; the Canaanite languages (Phoenician, Punic or Carthaginian and Hebrew); Assyrian; Chaldean; Eblaite; Edomite; Ge’ez; Old South Arabian; Modern South Arabian languages; Maltese; Mandaic; Moabite; Proto-Sinaitic; Sutean; Syriac; Tigre and Tigrinya; and Ugaritic, among others.
As language studies are interwoven with cultural studies, the term also came to describe the extended cultures and ethnicities, as well as the history of these varied peoples as associated by close geographic and linguistic distribution. Today, the word “Semite” may be used to refer to any member of any of a number of peoples of ancient Middle East including the Akkadians, Assyrians, Arameans, Phoenicians, Hebrews (Jews), Arabs, and their descendants.
