Antijaphetism

I think it is time to popularize a new term, "antijaphetism." It refers to prejudice directed against people of European descent. It is designed to parallel "antisemitism," as Japheth biblically is the father of the Europeans as Shem is of the Hebrews. In particular, the term would be useful to use for Jewish people who harbor ill will toward non-Jewish whites, in order to acknowledge the existence of such prejudice while not imputing that position to Jews as a whole.

I decided that popularizing this term would be a good thing, as I have noticed that a lot of white nationalists tend to harbor antisemitic and anti-Zionist feelings that I think are not only wrong, but ultimately counterproductive. The fact of the matter is that there is nothing anti-white about Zionism, which is merely the belief that Jews have the right to a homeland. Jewish sympathy and unity toward other Jews should not be seen as threatening indeed, non-white ethnic nationalism as a whole should not be, unless it is accompanied by an antipathy toward whites.

While there are a lot of people of Jewish heritage who do seem to have an antipathy toward Gentile whites (Chuck Schumer), there is no reason to use this to attack the Jewish people as a whole, nor to conflate pro-Jewish movements with anti-Gentile ones. This would be the mirror image of the tendency to conflate any form of pro-whiteness with Nazism.

By the way, people who like whites, in particular Jews who see their interests as aligned with those of Gentile whites, I would refer to as philojaphetic.

That is all.
