    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.

    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.



    There is no mention of religion in the definition anywhere.
    Did you notice that there is no definition of "race" there either?

    This goes beyond simple dictionary entries, the UN has the guidelines I use. "Race" as once used was believed to be based on genetics, but the problem is that genetic differences are tiny. Middle eastern Jews and Palestinians are nearly identical genetically, it is their cultural/ethnic differences that divide them....and that ethnic divide has religion as the basis.

    Well, a big hole here is that ethnicity/nationality are not the same thing as race

    Again, you skipped over the fact that "race" is an outmoded concept, the genetic differences are minimal, the genetic make-up of most ethnic groups are not homogeneous/identical. Discrimination against ethnic groups is not restricted to genetics, as the Israeli Jews/Palestinian example shows.

    though I am unsure how that addresses my point, being that no one refers to the palistinians and Sephardic Jews as seperate races

    Are you truly going to make an argument that when Israeli Jews discriminate against Palestinians, the charges of racism are invalid? Because again this requires an ignoring of the modern understanding of racism.

    Yes. Especially when we look to the fact that many of those jews are from the same "racial" group ...

    No, the discussion we are having really has no connection to "race", beyond your misunderstanding. So me recognizing the issues with 'race" as a concept doesn't support your position
