definitely correct many Palestinian speaks Hebrew while less Israeli speak Arabic,
i suppose that referred to work inside Israel from vast number of Palestinian also learning that at jail ,daily contacts on check points and some view economic connection
yes but you lived before so it's ok :) swearing, you mean say bad words ? Have you ever tried to learn arabic, just to understand Arabs in their language ? Do you know if there is arabic learning in hebrew schools inside Israel ?
yes, I mean bad words. I picked it up from my father in law who is very...hot tempered. I took an Arabic course and learnt a few more words but not enough to have a conversation. I hope to really study when we move back.
Yes, Arabic is taught in Israeli schools but it is optional.
Thanks Noa, i have watched the video, it's great to speak about it and to have an education team in mepeace: i'm sure that our efforts have to support educational actions because it's not my generation (you read like me incredible agressive comments here) nor your generation (you are like pionneers) but the NEXT generation who can be peaceful :). I try to prepare your group inside School Beyond the Walls to learn hebrew with you... We already have a group about learning arabic, managed by my friend Nidal. He is a Palestinian living in France and he speaks arabic, hebrew, french and english...

What was surprising to me when I met Arabs in Canada is swearing is considered so inappropriate and low class. I spent 10 years in Israel with Mizrahim (what you guys call the Arab Jews) and swearing in Arabic was just part of learning to be Israeli because it peppers so much of the language. But I am told I learned 'ars' Hebrew- for further details on what it is to be an ars http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ars_(slang).
