  The Holocaust Chronicle PROLOGUE: Roots of the Holocaust, page 41
Marr's conception of antisemitism focused on the supposed racial, as opposed to religious, characteristics of the Jews.
Marr's often-reprinted political tract, "The Victory of Judaism over Germandom," warned that "the Jewish spirit and Jewish consciousness have overpowered the world." He called for resistance against "this foreign power" before it was too late.
Marr thought that before long "there will be absolutely no public office, even the highest one, which the Jews will not have usurped." For Marr, it was a badge of honor to be called an antisemite.

 Wilhelm Marr - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wilhelm Marr (1819-1904) was a German agitator and theorist, who coined the term "antisemitism" as a euphemism for the German Judenhass, or "Jew-hate".
To prevent this from happening, in 1879 Marr founded the League of Antisemites (Antisemiten-Liga), the first German organization committed specifically to combatting the alleged threat to Germany posed by the Jews and advocating their forced removal from the country.
Nevertheless, Marr was a major link in the evolving chain of German racism that erupted into genocide during the Nazi era.

Wilhelm Marr, the man who introduced the term "anti-Semitism" into politics and founded the first "Anti-Semitic League." Marr (1819-1904) began his political career as a democrat and revolutionary, fighting for the emancipation of all oppressed groups including the Jews.
Marr was a radical revolutionary left wing intellectual who based his philosophy on that of the Left Hegelian Ludwig Feuerbach, advocating atheism and maintaining an anti-Christian and antiSemitic belief system.
Marr generally comes across as a rather despicable individual despite the fact that he would later come to at least partially repent of some of his antiSemitic beliefs (though never of his atheism and anti-Christian beliefs).

 Antisemitism: The Term Itself
German political agitator Wilhelm Marr coined the related German word Antisemitismus in his book "The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism" in 1879.
Marr used the phrase to mean Jew-hatred or Judenhass, and he used the new word antisemitism to make hatred of the Jews seem rational and sanctioned by scientific knowledge.
Marr's book became very popular, and in the same year he founded the "League of Anti-Semites" ("Antisemiten-Liga"), the first German organization committed specifically to combating the alleged threat to Germany posed by the Jews, and advocating their forced removal from the country.

I suggest that Wilhelm Marr gave to these ugly traits the term “semitism” and he did not have any speakers of semitic languages in mind, when doing so.
So when propagating anti-semitism Wilhelm Marr was taking up a fight against the selfish traits encountered in Judaism - but of course also found in certain christian communities like the evangelicals with their obsession with money.

Anti-Semitism is a term coined by an angry and confused man. It was invented in 1879 by a German racist, Wilhelm Marr, who formed the League of Antisemites, a failed effort that nonetheless established itself as history’s first popular movement based on antipathy toward Jewish people.
Marr chose the term to infer that Jewish people were a distinct race, even though Jewishness is not a racial category.
In the late 1800s, at the time when Marr invented his pejorative term, hostility towards the Jewish community was primarily economic, emanating from jealousy of the relative success of a few Jewish merchants.

This is the first biography of radical writer and politician Wilhelm Marr, the man who introduced the term "anti-Semitism" into politics and founded the first "Anti-Semitic League." Marr (1819-1904) began his political career as a democrat and revolutionary, fighting for the emancipation of all oppressed groups including the Jews.
Drawing on Marr's published and unpublished works, as well as on previously unexamined journals and voluminous correspondence, Zimmermann sets out to discover why an intellectual radical like Marr would become a virulent anti-Semite.
As Zimmermann follows Marr's profound influence in the political, literary, and artistic circles of his day and his collaborations with Karl Marx, Richard Wagner, and other radical founders of modern anti-Semitism, he reveals the diverse ways that anti-Semitism came to permeate German thought and illuminates critical moments in the emergence of the German Reich.

century German journalist Wilhelm Marr, who invented the word “anti-Semitism” as a substitute for “anti-Judaism” because the number of Germans willing to believe that Jews were “in league” with the devil, poison the water supply and make Matzohs with the blood of children had diminished in view of scientific advances which made these accusations implausible.
Therefore, Marr argued that Jews are a race, biologically forced to destroy German culture and incapable of change.
Consequently, Marr argued, Jews must be murdered since nothing else can remove the Jewish “bacillus” from the German body.

In 1879 the German journalist Wilhelm Marr, a former socialist and anarchist, founded an organization that was novel in two ways.
It was the first political party based on a platform of hostility to Jews.
Marr was an atheist, and the Antisemiten-Liga (League of Anti-Semites) was hostile to Jews on the secular grounds that they are an alien "race." However, his account of "Semitism" was not essentially different from the demonic conception of the Jew that had existed in Christian Europe for centuries.

 Question 16.1: Why is antisemitism used to mean anti-Jewish? Aren't Arabs Semites too?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Answer: The word "anti-Semitism" was coined in Germany in 1879 by Wilhelm Marr as a more euphonious way of saying "Judenhass" (Jew-hatred), and has always meant exactly that.
The word has become too sanitized and too easily misunderstood, which is exactly what Marr tried to accomplish with the word's creation.
According to a (now discredited) nineteenth century theory that held that racial groups and linguistic groups coincide, Semites are natives of a group of Middle Eastern nations that are closely related in ethnicity, culture and language.

 BOOK REVIEWS: Jewish Voice for Peace, eds.
He begins with the nineteenth century German linguist Wilhelm Marr, who invented the term “Semitic” to serve as a new anti-Jewish epithet purportedly based on racial characteristics.
The term itself refers to a group of languages that includes Arabic and Hebrew, and Marr found that he could use this obscure linguistic reference to improve upon the current term of opprobrium, Judenhass (hatred of Jews).
The Holocaust, says Plitnick, is the ultimate expression of Marr’s racial anti-Jewishness, particularly because it was so different from the religious anti-Jewishness that characterized life in Christian Europe:

 European Judeophobia Gustavo Perednik
In that year the term anti-Semitism was coined in Hamburg by Wilhelm Marr, whose aim was to disassociate his hatred from any religious stance such as that utilized by Christian Judeophobes.
Three years after Wilhelm Marr coined his neologism, Leo Pinsker described the phenomenon with a more precise, if less utilized term.
In his Autoemancipation (1882) Pinsker uses Judeophobia, of twofold exactitude: It is explicit about the object of hatred, and through its suffix it stresses the irrationality of the phenomenon.
