You might find HPL (Hebrew Programming Language) interesting:

HPL is PHP but with Hebrew operators, commands, and builtin functions.
The interesting thing is that HPL is actually useful, as Hebrew and
Arabic are written from right to left and many text editors get
confused with RTL and LTR text on the same line. So typing in HPL
looks better in the text editor and is more easily understood.
