Whereupon the Canaanites, beholding those of our people that were separated from the world to serve God, when they saw such an one, said in derision 'Pharisee!' that is, 'He seeks God'; as much as to say: 'O madman, you have no statues of idols and adore the wind; look to your fate and come and serve our gods....'

The key words are " separated from the world to serve God" (or population or majority) Separated not by race but by the fact that they seeked 'the real God' and not some wooden or stone or metal or animal or a system god,
