It is not.  We have dozens of language translations, among them
Arabic.  I presume you're on Windows; on Windows, you have to install
and select translations in some way which I don't understand.  On a
Unix system, if you use Pidgin in an Arabic locale, it should use
Arabic by default.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
