Doesn't Israel have Arabic as its second official language, or did they change that when I wasn't looking?

I have a friend who has actively refused to learn new countries or names. In his world, there's still Yugoslavia, USSR, Czechoslovakia, ... and a lot of new countries simply do not exist. A funny geezer, good entertainment with his "principles". (which, needless to say, do not end at "I'm not learning new countries")

But apart from the fact that they speak a different language that uses a different script, is there any real reason why Tanzania shouldn't be accepted?

As always with official languages, it's interesting which countries speak the language that don't have it official and which countries don't speak it but have it as the official language. Somalia, Comoros, and Djibouti are not really Arabic speaking countries. Meanwhile, a lot of people in Israel and South Sudan do speak Arabic.

I had no idea they speak Arabic in Comoros. I only got it because the answers are alphabetized.

The name Comoros derives from the Arabic word Qamar meaning 'moon', because the archipelago's name in Arabic is the Islands of the Moon.
