    Semitic is a modern linguistic sub grouping, of the Afro-Asiatic linguistic grouping.
    Maltese is a Semitic language.
    Conflating modern linguistic groupings with ethnicity and race is folly and never ends well.
    Armenians for instance are Indo-Europeans, and Assyrians are Semites, both are genetically overlapped heavily.

    True, but many folk here see them as somewhat similar. You will never see anyone calling Jamaicans or Aframs 'Germanic' even though they are of partial Germanic ancestry and natively speak a Germanic language.

    No. I consider them European like any other southerners and everyone in Croatia does as well.

    The 2nd largest Semitic language after Arabic is Amharic.
    Amharic is spoken by over 22 million Ethiopians.
    Below I will post a picture of an Ethiopian vs an Arab, and tell me if you see them as "somewhat similar."

    No. They have nothing in common with true Semites such as Bedouins, Yemenite Jews, and the original Natifuan

    They have one thing in common.
    They speak a Semitic language.

    Some people say Amharas are not real Semites either. I also don't think it's weird to consider the Maltese as Semitic but the reason I don't is cause I personally view them as the same ethnicity as Sicilians.

    But anyways, do you consider Jamaicans and Aframs to be Germanic? Also, vote in the poll
