It isn't an 'arabic' language per se.. but its related... it plays a role in many languages around north africa, middle east, and even asia...

The Original writings of the Bible were in Aramaic, and its believed Jesus spoke/wrote/read that language too.. so it was around those days in that area as well...

no, it's not an arabic language but like arabic, it is a semitic language.
it is actually closer to hebrew than it is to arabic.

Ethiopians speak Amharic.

Aramaic was the language of the people in the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine)...

But the Assyrians use Assyrian Neo Aramaic language..

Yes in my research I have read that, also doesn't the Arabic alphabet borrow from the Aramaic alphabet, that's what I read anyway...
