ARABIC: A SECONDARY LANGUAGE RESERVED FOR SECOND CLASS CITIZENS

Twenty five years ago if you watchted a movie on Israel’s (only) TV station, there were subtitles…. in Hebrew and Arabic.


Slowly but surely, the Arabic translations were replaced by Russian.

If the movie was in Hebrew, it had English and Arabic subtitles… BOTH were replaced by Russian.

Most Israeli packaged goods had ingredients listed in Hebrew, Arabic and English…. this to is changing to Hebrew and Russian only.

Now there is a move within the government to completely remove Arabic from the list of official Primary languages in Israel. With sixty years of ethnic cleansing of the Arab population in Israel, this move comes as no surprise. You can read about this new chapter in ethnic cleansing below…. a secondary language for second class citizens…

MK Limor Livnat (Likud) and three other leading MKs from Kadima, Likud and Shas are set to propose this week that the Knesset remove Arabic from its list of the country’s official primary languages.

The bill would make Hebrew the only official primary language, and Arabic, English and Russian would become official secondary languages.
