Hebrew Israelite Myth #16: The Jewish people currently living in Israel know they are not the real Jews because they use the suffix “ish” after the term Jew and that means “somewhat like”

Verses used by Hebrew Israelites: None

Type of Error: Grammar

Category: Grammar

Response:
To say you are Jewish does not imply that you are somewhat Jew it refers to the nationality a person belongs to. When a person living in Ireland, Scotland, England, Spain, Denmark are asked what is their nationality they respond Irish, Scottish, English, Spanish, Danish respectively. To imply that a person only somewhat of an ethnicity based on their use of this suffix is without merit.  
-ish
•The suffix “-ish” is a native Germanic suffix with the sense of “belonging to”. Since English has been much influenced by French and Latin, the suffix is not as productive as it used to be. However, in other Germanic languages, such as German, its usage is far more common. Nationalities which use -ish in German (-isch) but not in English include Italienisch (Italian), Chinesisch(Chinese), Isländisch (Icelandic) and Irakisch (Iraqi). Its Germanic origin explains why nationalities that use -ish are all in Europe, and belong to Germanic nations around Germany and Scandinavia.
•This is even clearer if you consider two more facts:
•The word German does not end in -ish, because the united nation of Germany did not exist until relatively recently. The word Germancomes from a Latin word referring to the people in that region.
•Both French (from Frencisc) and Dutch (from Diutisc) in fact contain the suffix -ish, although in both cases, the suffix has been fused with the base to form a new, irregular adjective.
