France 24 in Arabic and French

I was just watching what is on France24 in Arabic (I can get it on my iPhone anywhere now) and they were discussing how Isreal keep the body of palestanians who committed suicide and how the Palestanians families want the body back to bury them nearby.

Then I switched to France24 in French (again on my iPhone) and they were obviously (my french can is really weak) discussing De Gaulle.


HHmmm .... Discussing what happened in the past is the theme of the two stories ... Should we as arabs discuss the future as well ??? Should we discuss what will happen tomorrow, next year, 10 years from now. Do we ever discuss where we would like to be 100 years from now? 1000 years from now?

Any one is doing this?
