comment Moreh Nevuchim Arabic-Hebrew
The Kapach Mosad HaRav Kook edition linked to is Hebrew-only. I have the same edition and the 480 page version doesn't include the Arabic. The Dr. Kaufman version doesn't contain the Arabic either, as far as I remember.

comment What letter is not found in Bentching
The association is so ingrained that when people want a 'pey' פּ sound at the end of a word in modern Hebrew that they (unnaturally) use a non-final pey, e.g. the kid's TV network 'Hop', הופּ, hop.co.il . Using a final 'fey' ף is simply understood as an 'eff' sound.

comment Kabala in Halacha
There might be, but I don't believe that the Beit Yosef brings any such halachic sources for this particular ruling

In fact, the Rambam makes of a unit of time smaller than a chelek, that is, a 'rega', רגע, which is 1/76 of a 'chelek', חלק, .0438 seconds. See Hilchot Kiddush HaChodesh 10:1-2. kodesh.mikranet.org.il/i/3810.htm

comment What is the most widespread Israeli Minhag?
Actually, lighting the chanukiyah outdoors is relatively unusual and only practiced by the religious, certainly not the masorti or chiloni who light. You only see it commonly done in Jerusalem, otherwise most people light in their windows or simply in the house. Communal lighting at public events though is quite common.
