Good quiz, thanks!
Nice short quiz!
Anyway long story short: English is definitely not an official language. Many Israelis don't speak it and it hasn't had official status since 1948 I believe.

This isn't Reddit.
Finally, there is nothing "progressive" about Pablo's comment above. Israel is by far the most progressive country in the Middle East. There's nothing progressive about wishing for it to be overrun by violent tribalists who are very much less progressive than the Israelis. It's just good ol' regular anti-semitism by a different name and of a slightly different flavor, filtered and distilled through various intermediaries starting with Husayni, al-Banna, Nasser and Arafat, working its way through Habash, Guevara, the UN and Newton, delivered to your doorstep by Chomsky, Foucault, Sarsour, et al.
there were many disunified indigenous tribes there until the Romans moved in, and then, you know, David Cameron put Brexit to a vote and so the UK withdrew from the Roman Empire.
Except in your case add an additional 500 years to the unexplained gap. :)
But this does put a nice spotlight on the huge and baffling blank spot most Westerners have in their heads when it comes to the history of this extremely important region...
