What is Anti-Semitism?? What is Anti-Semitism??

What is Anti-Semitism??

People in east like us didn't even knew about the word anti-Semitism before but few days back Foreign minister of Pakistan gave an interview in a CNN program which went viral due to some word anti-Semitism. As a lot of people don't know this word first e have to look what this word actually means and why CNN's anchor called Shah Mehmood Qureshi's remarks as Anti-Semitic remarks.

Anti-Semitism, The belief or behavior hostile toward Jews just because they are Jewish. It may take the form of religious teachings that proclaim the inferiority of Jews, for instance, or political efforts to isolate, oppress, or otherwise injure them. It may also include prejudiced or stereotyped views about Jews.

What was said in CNN's program??

Here is what Shah Mehmood had said about Israel

"The pressure of public opinion is mounting, and ceasefire is inevitable. Israel is losing out. They're losing the media war despite their connections, they are losing the media war," the Pakistani foreign minister said Thursday.

"What are their connections?" asked CNN's Bianna Golodryga.

"Deep pockets." Shah said

"What does that mean?" Bianna said

"Well, they are very influential people. I mean, they control media," Qureshi responded.

"I would call that an anti-Semitic remark," Golodryga replied.

During the "Amanpour" program on Thursday, Golodryga repeatedly called out comments made on-air by the Pakistani foreign minister as anti-Semitic.

Who is Bianna Golodryga??

Bianna Golodryga is a senior global affairs analyst and fill-in anchor for CNN based in New York

Golodryga was born to a working-class family of Bessarabian Jews in Căușeni, Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic (now independent Moldova), the only child of Zhanna and Vitaly Golodryga 

So this clears the situation as the anchor herself is from Jewish origins that's why remarks from Pakistan Foreign minister hurts her. Moreover there are news that her brother is also serving in Israeli military so we can understand her situation. In fact what shah mehmood was saying was right Israel do have deep connections in media.
