Comrade, maybe i got it wrong... but i think i can tell polemics from 
crude antisemitism. As you have read Frankfurt School (boo) you might 
have read "Elements of Antisemitism", part of "Dialektik der Aufklaerung" 
(don't know the english title, sorry). You will find there some very 
informative propositions what is meant by alluding to someone's 
jewish/hebrew "origin".

BTW: UTICA is a place in northern Tunesia/North Africa in the delta of 
Oued Medjerda. It was a port founded by Phoenicians (11th century 
B.O.T.), then capitol of the Roman province Africa.

Take care
Thomas
