Hebrew and Arabic are close indeed with the Aramaic language connecting both. For example the Hebrew word Shemesh (sun) is 'Shemash' in Aramaic and Shams in Arabic, Shilton (rule) is Shultan in Aramaic and Sulta in Arabic. 'melekh'(king) is 'malk' in Aramaic and malik in Arabic. Also the grammatical structures are in principle identical. In the popular dialects from Syrian to Egyptian Arabic there are still many Aramaic elements that you do not find in fusha. I send this post also with regard to those posters who claim that the Jewish people originated in America, Turkey or Russia. The language is a clear proof that this is wrong.
