Yes, I agree that learning arabic is important because you need to know and understand the ennemy or when it will finally recognize the jewishness of the Land of Israel, the neighbour. But the reasons here given are illusional and distorded. Arabic became one of the official languages as a welcome approach in 1948 and this is enough. But as always, give the finger and they want the hand. The welcome approach has proven to be a false and failed approach. There is no way for arabs to feel completely an Israeli citizen unless you change the name of Israel. This must be acknowledged because identity in this part of the world, in opposition to secular Europe and US, is based on religion. The one that wants to elude it, like secular jewish lefties, ad modum young Yossi Sarid, are just living on the moon. Why not to appease the arab minority to write on the flag Israel in arabic and Mohamed rassool Allah like the present iraki flag.
