Israel: Hebrew a dying language?

G-d knows, the Zionist elites run the USA...

When do you expect the USA official language to be switched to Hebrew?

It will save loads of money because the legislation now written in Israel for us will not need to be translated.

Everyone wins, well except for the translation department and Israeli politicians will not be able to say one thing in English and another in Hebrew to trick us

Update:

    It is a very primitive language with a very limited vocabulary most of it comes from Arabic

    It is actually a dead language

    It is not even one of the top 100 live languages

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_...

    Less than 6 millions speak it

    It will definitely become dead if the Israelis go on war with Iran

    Well, to address your bold question: No, it isn't. It was moribund for millennia; however, it's now alive and thriving. Ask a linguist, and they'll say that the teaching of children at the magnitude at which it's being taught definitely quantifies it as a living language.

    The USA has no official language. De facto, it is English, but de jure English is not the official language of the United States. Thus, Hebrew will never be the official language of a nation that has no official language.

    US policy is written in the USA. If it's written in Israel, then it's by a US politician who happens to be traveling in Israel at that moment in time.

    The translation department still has jobs, and Israeli politicians aren't effected since they usually don't say different things in Hebrew than in English. However, I should note that certain other nations do have a history of this, and not Israel.

    I doubt you are deadly serious, but in any case you shouldn't be since your facts and assumptions are very, very wrong.

    ? Bin-Yahuda purely greater and geared up historic Hebrew. useful revival of Hebrew grow to be applied via 5 or 6 women folk (I don’t remember their names regretfully) who prepared the 1st Hebrew kindergarten for his or her teenagers in Arabic/English language media of Palestine; a brilliant ranging tale!

    There are more Hebrew speakers in the world than Danish speakers. Is Danish a dying language?

    "Israel: Hebrew a dying language?"

    Nope. In fact, it is the one national language which parents learn from their children.
