Should take care to not put this on the same page as a Hebrew phrasebook, as it could get people into trouble in countries like Syria. guaka 16:14, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

What do you mean by that? Like, when it's printed out? Or to be troubling for HW when the Syrian authorities see that Arabic and Hebrew are on the same site?--Zenit 18:57, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
It's still okay in Jordan and Egypt, since there these countries have "peace" with Israel, but I think in Syria and Libya it's best to avoid carrying around anything written in Hebrew. Also because there is a higher chance of contact with authorities when hitchhiking, and, well, from what I understand hitchhiking in Libya is hardly possible at all. (There is also this... not sure what exactly Platschi was referring to, but in such a case you don't want to carry around a Hebrew phrasebook!) guaka 22:47, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
