On the use of the terms "(anti-)Semitic" and "(anti-) Zionist" in modern Middle Eastern discourse
University of Oslo.
2012 (English)In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, no Supplement, 13-19 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Just as political and cultural discourse in general, modern Middle Eastern discourse is at times characterized by a great deal of hostility, not only between different states or religious denominations, but also state-internally among various ethnic, political, or religious groups. This short article focuses on the use of the attributes "Semitic" and "Zionist," as well as their negative counterparts "anti-Semitic" and "anti-Zionist," respectively, in examples of both Arabic and Israeli critical to hostile discourse. The focus of the discussion will lie on how the original meanings of these terms, especially in their negated forms, tend to be distorted in engaged political and cultural discourse.
