    Default IF Arabs are Semites, then aren't Iranians, pakistanis, Indians, and afghans, Indo-Europeans?

    Or are Indo-european speaking near-easterners just OWD and are Semites instead?

    I think you don't know that term "Indo-European" is actually related to language and not race.

    That's what I mean though. We always refer to Arabs as semites. Why dont we do the same for these Indo-European speaking countries?

    The Albanians, these tigers of mountain wars ... have as their religion rebellion. Even their worst warrior is one of the strongest and bravest on the battle-field, just as if he was a knight on the legendary horse. But he has no horse, nor proper weapons for battle. Instead of the horse, he has a lance which strikes as lightning, he has spears who's points are full of posion as the sting of hornets, he has also a wooden bow with some arrows. Furthermore, he is stronger than iron ...

    Arabs are Afro-Asiatics while Iranians are Indo-Europeans. It's not rocket science, bro.

    That's because Semite is a smaller and more easily categorizable term compared to Indo-European. IE is a very broad term that includes a lot more diversity.

    It would make more sense to compare Indo-European to Afro-Asiatic and to compare Semitic to Iranic/Slavic/Celtic/etc.

    Semitic is a broad term too

    Do you realy think and Assyrian or Iraqi Arab have much in common with a Berber from North Africa

    Do you think a Polish or Lithuanian Jew is realy that much similar to StonyArabia or an average Beduin dude from Jordan or Palestine
    The Talmud tells us that the only language the Torah could be translated into elegantly is Greek.

    Semitic is less broad than IE still. And its mainly a linguistic term not a cultural one.
