The Emirates News Agency publishes news items in several languages. And as of a few days ago, Hebrew is one of them. For Israelis, it is an extraordinary source of information to familiarize themselves with their new friends in the Middle East. This, together with the official Twitter account of the Emirati Embassy in Tel Aviv, enables Israelis to learn firsthand and in Hebrew what their Emirati friends are interested in, how their society functions and what their hopes are for the future.
And this works both ways. Head of the Israeli mission in Abu Dhabi Eitan Na’eh makes sure to frequently post messages in Arabic. Clearly, both sides want to get through messages of peace between societies, not just between governments.
