    French soccer star Anelka performs the “QUENELLE” – an anti-Semitic gesture, last December (pictured). ISIS is another completely new term too. Others, like SODASTREAM, became widely used this year. Still others like “Pew,” #BringBackOurBoys, and “tunnel” will forever take on new meanings after the events of 5774. When Merriam-Webster released the latest edition of its Official Scrabble Players Dictionary last month, it announced that it had added more than 5 000 new words – including Yiddish words like “schmutz” and “tuchus.” From Golden Dawn to Terror Tunnel, here’s the 5774 glossary…
