What is Anti-Semetic(sp?)??

Ok, I've seen the movie now. What does anti-Semetic (and I know I'm not spelling that right) mean?

A Semite is a member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East and northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians, Ethiopians, Hebrews, and Phoenicians.

So a Anti-Semitic would be someone who is against someone belonging to one of those groups, although it is usually geared more toward the Jewish people.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up.

Well, then I'd say I don't think that the Passion isn't anti-semitic . . . it shows how the jews didn't believe Jesus was the Messiah . . . and they still don't . . . so how is that anti-semitic?

It really showed both sides. On one hand you have the Sanhedrin and others during the trial that wanted him crusified. Then as he is carrying the cross to Calvary we see those who supported Him and His ministry. I guess the media and the Jewish Hollywood types are calling it such because they believe that some people may get angered if it is interpreted wrong.
