Perhaps a gesture towards healing
How wonderful to not be called by a name you do not call yourself (Arab). Especially when you don't speak, read, write or even understand Arabic.

Arabs are from Arabia. The Lebanese are Phoenicians. The Syrians are Arameans. The Iraqis are Mesopotamians (Babylonians, Assyrians and Arameans). The Egyptians are descendants of the ancient Egyptians. The Jordanians are Nabateans.

None of these nations are "Arab", despite the language they might speak officially. This is due to the Arab/Islamic invasion of the 7th century.

How wonderful that Israel has done something like this, which not even Iraq or Syria has done (and they have the most Arameans)
