    in addition to not making a tremendous impact on demographic majority in either Israel or the future Palestinian state. So this leaves us with questioning why the foreign minister made such a proposal for the Israeli government. I believe that there is an element of discomfort possibly has occurred during the early years of Israel's formation, the Jews who immigrated from Arab lands were also challenged by not receiving the 'welcome' both economically and socially (the Ashkenazis detested the Arabic language use for example- btw the other Semetic language) and this discomfort took time to overcome. Today of course, Arabic is amongst the three main languages in Israel: Hebrew, Arabic and English, and the assimilation of Ashkenazi and Mizrahi Jews is pretty well the norm. P.S. My parents used to attend Prof. Dror's lectures with his visits abroad, in particular my father.
