Proposed Law: Arabic in School

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
According to INN, MK Oren hazan (Likud) has proposed a law that would make it obligatory for schools to teach Arabic language from first grade all the way to 12th grade.
His logic is obvious. We live together, work together, ride buses together, we should be able to converse and understand each other.
It makes sense to me. The entire region of nations we live in speaks Arabic. It would behoove us to have some knowledge in that language and culture. Whether to help make peace, to do business, sports, or whatever else, we should be familiar with our neighbors. Kind of like the way Spanish is so popular, and even has status as an official language, in much of America.
By that token, we might also want to include Chinese - not because we are together so much, but so much of our commerce is centered in China, it makes sense to have our future business-people know the language.
