A Hebrew speaker bitching about Arabic is as funny as an Englishman bitching about German.

Yes, I know. Their language still sucks even compared to Hebrew.

Frankly I love the sound of English and German alot better than Hebrew.
I need to learn the later one day...perfect language for cursing. :P
The mere sound of it is pleasuring.

STILL OFF-TOPIC!

Uh-huh. Actually, what I found funny is that the languages are historically related and very similar structurally. Hebrew literature is of course much older, but Arabic is spoken over a much wider area.

They're both interesting languages, when you get beyond your prejudices against their speakers. :wink:

It's the Jews' fault I hate them! They murdered our Muhammad!
Or Jesus, or...something... :roll:

Speaking of which, tonight it's the first evening of Passover, time for me to sharpen my knife and go look for some cute Christian kids to slaughter for their blood. :twisted:

Hey orald, you seing as you speak the language, I have heard that Kwisatz Haderach has a Hebrew root: Kefitzat Haderech, literally meaning "jumping of the path/road/way", and translating to "the great breakthrough" or "the big advancement."?
Or also close to the expression: Kitzur Haderech, literally meaning "shortening of the path/road/way" and translating to "the short cut." ?
Is Kwisatz an actual Hebrew word, or did FH just mutate it a bit from the original? I originally found this out from a conversation with a friend, but I just found the info again on wiki.
Hope this doesn't break the language rule.

Yea, FH twisted the pronounciation a bit, probably to simulate the passing of the eons and changing of the languages(though should the BG know hos to say it right? :roll: ).

It's pronounced kfi-tzat ha-de-rech. Soft "ch". "Ha" means "the".
