Suggesting that the Jews would adopt Aramaic is a bit like suggesting 
that the Irish would adopt English.  It seems totally illogical and 
against common sense.  Now, should you point that out to the Irish or 
should I?

Or perhpas you misunderstand the relationship betwene the Jews and the 
speakers of Aramic?
