But that's not a misspelling of antisemite; it's a whole different word, and as far as I know, is only the name of a record company.

Iraq, and Yemen are both having a civil war as well. Lebanon is dealing with the spillover of the Syrian Civil War. Several other countries have had major governmental changes. The Arab Spring most certainly affected the Asian part of the Arab world.

Between uprisings or protests in Beirut, Oman, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia (all put down, Bahrain's still somewhat ongoing), democratic stirrings in Iran, outright civil war in Yemen, outright civil war and near disintegration of the state in Syria and Iraq, constant fighting in Kurdistan, increased terrorism/political upheavals in Turkey, the formation of Islamic State, and the massive refugee crisis... I'd say that it affected the Middle East *more* than North Africa. Also Egypt is almost always included in the Middle East in addition to being part of North Africa.

True, but "anti-semitism" is used to refer to hatred of Jewish people specifically. It's similar to how "homophobia" doesn't mean "fear of sameness."

Video 2000 was also a loser of the video format wars, and should be accepted. It was a legend here.
