Anti Semitism

#Anti_Semitism vs #Philo_Semitism
If anti-Semitism is prejudice, hatred of, or discrimination against Jews as a national, ethnic, religious or racial group or better as defined in German language as "JudenHass" Which means it is not literally against Semitic people, but only against Jews. But then, what do we call Jews prejudice, hatred of, discrimination against others by Jews?
I usually feel amazed of how people would react to what is defined as Anti Semitism or better JudenHass. So if I may ask, what does Anti-Semitism means to you?
I'm coming from the Middle East as you know, and the way we perceive that term is completely different. The term is perceived differently here, majorly because we were not partners in the ugly crimes committed by Europeans and particularly the Germans against the Jews, and maybe because the majority of Middle Eastern people is of Semitic origin (Hope I'm statistically correct here) and that's why I prefer JudenHass over Anti Semitic.
