Israel speaks neither Hebrew nor Arabic these days (just English)
All U.S. President Barack Obama had to was to land here, and everyone ingratiated themselves to him. Israel’s president and prime minister, even the Iron Dome anti-missile system, they all grumbled in English. In contrast, the henpecked Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas spoke in Arabic, the language of his people.
