If you believe the Torah literally, then yes, all Asiatics are descendents of Shem. Since you and I are reasonable people, I think we can agree that this is probably not the case.

I was speaking about the scholars in Semitic Studies at Hebrew University.

Hebrew evolved into Aramaic (or at least shared some common denominator) and somehow it evolved into Arabic.

Wrong. It si assumed that a 'protosemitic' language evolved into the different Semitic subbranches (East-Semitic, South-West Semitic and North-West Semitic).
