Well, in 'our' time, I never heard what you are talking about. This "Moses
and Prophets" remark has been in my consciousness for a quarter of a
century and never once did I think of even a hint of anti-Semitism in it.  
Maybe I am naive, but it seems to me as 'looking for a problem' in order
to discredit (a typical right-wing game).  Moses was always for me the
author of the Ten Commandments.  I'm rather shocked.
