Hello Oun Kwon:
Why would a people (hebrews) adopt the language (aramaic) of a people
(babylonians) who burned down the hebrew temple and removed its most prized
possession; ark of the covenant?
Even the conservative oxford english dictionary has begun to recognize the
folly of such conclusion.
Even Japan in 2010 refuses to accept the language of the legions that occupy
its shores today; and burned its cities in 1945.
