Colonial Grammarism. "Professor Sasson and his colleagues are quick to point out that they do not believe in disconnecting or isolating Arabic from Hebrew. "The idea is to give (the) Arabic (that's spoken in Israel) some 'self-confidence.'"" Oh, yes. Palestinians in Israel need Professor Sasson to teach them grammar and to instill confidence in them. Israel: the land where colonial myths and assumptions would never wither away. (thanks Amer)
