Le Quotidien d'Oran reported today that the Emir AbdelKader Islamic University decided to teach the Hebrew language.
The university already introduced French and English in the past. It recently started teaching Farsi and Turkish languages and is planning on teaching Hebrew and Urdu.
This decision is mainly dictated by their needs in the comparative study of religions specialties.
The Farsi and Turkish are taught by Algerian teachers bu the university is looking for Egyptian or Palestinian teachers for Hebrew.

The courses will be open to the public for 2500DZD/year only.

I think it was about time to do teach Hebrew. And I still would like to see this language and culture taught in other universities such as those dealing with political sciences and international relations.


Des cours d'hébreu à l'université islamique

par A. Mallem

L'université dessciences islamiques de Constantine (USIC) Emir Abdelkader, qui enseigne déjàdepuis plusieurs années

les languesétrangères comme le français, l'anglais et particulièrement les languespratiquées dans les pays islamiques, comme le farsi et le turc, dontl'apprentissage est assuré par des enseignants algériens, compte introduireprochainement l'enseignement de l'hébreu.

«Aujourd'hui onparle beaucoup de dialogue entre les civilisations, entre les cultures, etcette nouvelle option entre dans notre programme d'apprentissage de toutes leslangues qui ont un rapport direct avec les religions monothéistes d'une façongénérale et la civilisation islamique tout particulièrement», indique le DrAbdallah Boukhelkhal, recteur de l'USIC, qui ajoute que son institution,«largement ouverte sur le monde moderne, commence à prendre désormais une placescientifique prépondérante dans l'aire géographique islamique, de Tanger àl'Indonésie et aux Philippines, ainsi que dans le monde en général». Aussi etdans le cadre du développement de l'étude des langues, l'USIC prospecteactuellement du côté de l'Egypte et de la Palestine pour recruter un ou deuxenseignants qui pourraient prendre en charge l'apprentissage de l'hébreu quisera dispensé au sein de l'université, à l'institut des langues, non seulementaux étudiants de l'université, indique-t-on, mais aussi aux chercheurs et auxsimples citoyens qui en feront la demande.

«Nul n'ignore, précise le Dr Boukhelkhal, quela civilisation islamique a légué un patrimoine scientifique et culturelimportant écrit dans les diverses langues parlées aujourd'hui à travers le monde,en particulier dans des langues comme le farsi (perse, iranien) et le turc. Parexemple, l'apprentissage de la langue turque permettra aux étudiants locaux depouvoir déchiffrer une grande partie de l'histoire de l'Algérie, relative à lapériode ottomane, qui est écrite dans cette langue. L'enseignement de l'hébreuà l'USIC est également une chose tout à fait normale, en ce sens que cetenseignement va bénéficier aux étudiants du département des religions comparéespour leur permettre de lire la Bible et la Thora. Il révélera aussi que cedépartement, qui regroupe des centaines d'étudiants algériens, mais aussid'étrangers qui viennent de pays lointains, comme la Corée et l'Indonésie, pours'inscrire dans la discipline de l'étude comparée des religions, reçoit chaqueannée de 30 à 40 nouveaux étudiants dans l'apprentissage des languesétrangères, notamment pour l'étude de l'histoire et de la civilisationislamiques.

Enfin, le recteur de l'USIC évoquel'introduction à long terme d'autres langues comme l'urdu, langue parlée auPakistan et en Afghanistan, qui recèle un énorme legs de la civilisation del'Islam, ainsi que le russe qui est la langue parlée par plusieurs paysmusulmans de l'Asie centrale qui étaient sous la sphère d'influence del'ex-Union soviétique. «Le célèbre écrivain et poète russe Pouchkine, parexemple, qui avait des origines musulmanes prouvées, a écrit beaucoup de poèmessur l'Islam et la civilisation islamique qu'il importe de déchiffrer grâce àl'apprentissage de sa langue», indiquera le Dr Boukhelkhal qui précise quel'étude de toutes ces langues n'est pas destinée à la préparation de licencespour les étudiants, mais uniquement pour l'apprentissage. Il terminera enindiquant que cet apprentissage, gratuit pour les étudiants de l'USIC, serapayant pour les citoyens désireux de s'inscrire, lesquels doivent s'acquitterde la somme de 2.500 dinars par an.

Un homme se leva et demanda permission d'appeler les fidèles à la prière.
Permission lui fût donnée:
- Vous pouvez les appeler, tant que vous les appelez à Dieu et non à vous-même.
- Mais comment saurais-je la différence?
- Si ça vous dérange que quelqu'un d'autre les appelle à Dieu, c'est que vous les appelez à vous-même.

When I first saw the title i thought "this is awful!" then I thought about it again and realized how important this can be, like you said especially for those dealing with politics. Yet i still can't understand why it is an Islamic University that is teaching this language, and let's hope this wouldn't turn against us as it happened with the Chinese, the last thing we want is to have jewish labour in Algeria,
usually these languages are taught for business purposes as well

What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel ......

i think it is about time, what you mean by know our enemies? you know that our history as algerien there are many jewish they are not our enemies; they had shops, worked with us, married with us and never one time killed to make their neighbors jewish, think u really need to read up on our history before there were many jewish algeriens who were kicked out of their land because of religious belifes, would u like a country u were born in and ur grandparents born in to say because u are muslim u have to go?
there is good and bad in all society does not make all bad food for thought
there is an algerien proverb, u scratch a berber you have a good chance at finding a jew

It makes sense for the Islamic University to teach Hebrew, mainly for comparative religions studies. It is important for the researchers and students alike to work on the original sources and avoid using the translations only.
I didn't mention business studies because today, and I hope it will remain unchanged, Algeria has no business ties with Israel. Not directly anyways.

The Chinese situation is completely different.

I always found it stupid to ignore the language and culture of the people who are in conflict with us. Not recognizing the state of Israel doesn't mean it doesn't have a kind of existence. Studying their language, culture, political and social lives; and understanding how things work there, how do the people think, etc. can only be beneficial.

Excuse me sister chaouia but allow me to tell you that I think all what you said is wrong, I completely disagree with you on this, not because we lived with the Jewish that we have to befriend them, besides our ancestors lived with them and not our generation, we don't know them, and then the jewish that lived in Algeria died with our dear ancestors, I know about their history in Algerian I've read the post u made about their existence in Oran and I live in a city near to Tlemcen and tlemcen was crowded of jewish in the past, some ppl in tlemcen still follow some jewish rituals that they acquired while living with them but this is not a pride. If I ever discover that I have Jewish origins I would try as much hide that and change if I can, because I think it is a shame.
the jewish we have to deal with today are completely different from those that lived in Algerian before, if you want to be nice to them make sure they are planning to destroy lyour religion and control your world
I know that all people aren't same and our fingers don't look alike but be sure that every jewish on earth works for the building of a strong jewish nation, dominative whose first concern is to destroy Islam and the arabic world, even if they refuse the way Israelians persecute Palestinians, they always end up supporting that evil government, and may I let you know if you haven't noticed, we are contributing into this too, unwillingly and unconsciously.

yes, they are our enemies sister chaouia,

i have lot to say but my English won't help me here for sure especially my vocabulary lol

i first agree with what ithri said about learning a language even-though it's our enemies' language cause learning will cause us nothing but good for sure and if we took that as a Principe then we will learn nothing at all besides there is a proverb that says in Arabic:" man ta3alama lougata kawmine salima sharahoum " or something alike

now the part about jewish being our enemies, i agree sister meriem, and thanks for saying that if you had a relation to them you will be ashamed, i will be too,they don't just kill and go after muslims but they also wants them all vanished as i read

chaouia i know they were here in Algeria and they did many goods thing and we thank them for that but those were a unique type of them (Jewish people), now they have new goals and new things to go for and they all want to hurt us (the Muslim community ) whatever the price is, i am sure they never thought ' ok we lived with Muslims before so we should love them not destroy them' and that's why they always succeed unlike us, we always think alot before taking a move when sometimes we should just take it

waw i talked alot ok guys that was just my point of view!!!!:D :D :D

too bad the uni is far from Algiers other-ways i would of visited and see what they have in pocket :P

salam

:lol: laughing is good but not all the time ;)

just to point out they were in algerie before islam, they are part of our history, they still live with us here not as many as before, they learn from us and we should learn from them, this is a big step and an important one to have the judio language taught in a university
