The Countries around Us Have Culture Too, and History. An Interview with Dr. Yoni Mendel / Gidi Gov, Tel Aviv Radio 102FM, 4/2/2019 (Hebrew)

Dr. Mendel: Although Arabic is the language of the region, and although it still has a special status in this country, and although it is so close to Hebrew – less than 0.4% of Israeli Jews can deal with literary text in Arabic. That is why we established the Maktoob book series two years ago. The countries around us have culture too, and history, not just newspaper headlines.
