I typed accomplice several times but it was not accepted. Ambiguous could have a better definition. It doesn't mean more than one. It means more than one interpretation or meaning.

someone who helps in a crime is also and aider or abettor (from the crime aiding and abetting a criminal) neither worked, both should. Ditto the comment about ambiguous--it means more than one interpretation--not more than one meaning. To be suspected of something but not proven: could refer to accused or acquitted. Hate Jews...: wrong tense, an anti-semite is a person who hates Jews, the word that fits your definition better is antisemitic.
