I absolutely agree that Israeli children should learn Arabic. About time. These are her immediate neighbors. If they can be taught English or French or any other language, I think it would be a mitzvah for everyone concerned. So this is a good suggestion on the part of the Minister and I hope that he will act on it. It would be a real boon for peace if children began to understand, at a fundamental level, the similarities between the two languages and our common ancestry and how to build a truly multicultural Israeli society that would function to the benefit of all its citizenry. I agree pretty much with most of Majadele's philosophy. Having been born in an Arab country, I feel robbed of part of my heritage in that I left too early to learn to read and write my mother tongue, and I feel Hebrew and Arabic are very much both my roots, even as I am grateful for the wonderful education and opportunities my dear parents strove to offer me. For what it's worth, here I am, this is what I am.
