As described by the EU's working definition of anti-semitism:
An Anti-Semite has a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non­Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.''

In addition, such manifestations could also target the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. An anti-semite will frequently charge Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and will blame Jews for "why things go wrong.''
• An Anti- Semite may make mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective - such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.
• An Anti-Semite may accuse Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non­Jews.
• An Anti-Semite may deny the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
•An Anti-Semite may accuse the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
•An Anti-Semite may accuse Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
•An Anti-Semite may use the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.
•An Anti-Semite may hold Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.

"Anti-Semite" is the English version of a Victorian era German phrase used in polite company in place of "Juden haas" or "Jew hatred.
"Anti-Semite" does not mean "one who is opposed to all speakers of Semitic languages. That is a recent construct, crafted for propaganda purposes.

(n.) a person who discriminates against or is prejudiced or hostile toward Jews.
Although someone who is Semitic can consist of Akkadian, Arabic, Aramaic, Ethiopic, Hebrew, and Phoenician persons, the current social and dictionary definition of an anti-Semite is one who discriminates against or is prejudiced or hostile toward Jews.

Person 1: "I hate all Jews."

Person 2: "You are an anti-Semite."

Person 1: "I hate all Ethiopian descendants."

Person 2: "You are an anti-Semite."

Person 1: "You are a complete dumbass."

Person 2: "And you're an idiotic racist piece of shit."

A person who hates jews. Antisemitism refers ONLY TO JEWS. Even though semites include people of other faiths and ethnicities, the term was created by a man named Wilhelm Marr solely to describe his hate for Jews ONLY.
Unfortunately, society continues to tolerate anti-Semites and their irrational hate of Jews.

1) NOT one who hates Jews exclusively. An antisemite is one who hates people of Semetic languages - this includes Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians, Ethiopians and Phoenicians. Therefore, it is moronic to accuse someone who is anti-Zionism of being an antisemite.
2) An incorrect way of saying anti-Semite.
Johnny is against Zionist ideals, so he's been labelled an antisemite - which is ironic because he's a Palestine supporter. If he were really an antisemite, he'd hate the Arabs too.
