As Israel knows all too well, a signed piece of paper does not necessarily lead to associated changes in reality. Do the law makers expect that Palestinain, or Arab Israelis will suddenly stop speaking Arabic? Does anyone imagine that this will unify Isarel or simply deepen the divisions. Will Isreal start to prosecute people who publish in Arabic or have shop signs in Arabic? Nothing unfies a people more than having a shared outlawed language.
