I personally believe the most artistic would be Hanzi. The most flexible would be Latin alphabet. The script that combine both would be Hangul. :)

I've often thought about this. I see I'm not the only one.

Good!

If I have to pick one it'll be Tibetan. Aesthetically it's the most appealing to me.

My least favourite is Arabic because writing it is such a pain in the side.

Other writings that appeal to my eyes include Bengali, Hebrew, Syriac, Greek, Georgian, Oriya, Armenian, Old "Cyrillic", Mongolian, Gothic, Kannada.

Indeed. I agree with you gnunix. I too find the arabic writing system way more appealing than the hebrew one. And that's exactly what this thread is about, right? Not the fact that the two languages are related, but the (subjective) beauty of their scripts.

Excat, and because of this I don't really get the sense of the discussion between telal and Delodephius, and especially telal's initial comment.

Believe me, I also don't get the sense of the discussion between telal and Delodephius.
