How Afraid Are We of the Arabic Language? An Interview with Dr. Yonatan Mendel / Goel Pinto, Kan Tarbut 17/6/2018 (Hebrew)

Dr. Mendel, following the attempts of Minister Miri Regev to control the Eurovision Song Contest: "I am appalled by the attitude of the establishment towards the Arabic language. This indicates a great schizophrenic gap between us and the region in which we live. Our call should be quite to the contrary: to speak more Arabic."

 

The interview can be heard from minutes 20:00 to 27:00.
