It sounds more like Arabic than Hebrew - "I Love you". But even if it's Arabic - then it's wrriten wrong. Try to find the right way to write it in English letters - and then I can help you.

It is in Arabic and it means "I love you".

I love you

I would not be as assertive as our colleague ("It is in Arabic and it means I love you"), since

1) it does mean "I love you", indeed,

2) but this is no Standard Arabic, but Levantine dialect:

ane: bHebbak, ana: baHebbek, "I love you" (gender unspecified).

Many variants are of course possible, since we are speaking of dialects.

"ana/e:" (1.p.sg. personal pronoun, "I") is for emphasis, since "b(a)Hebba/ek" already means "I love you" by itself. Therefore, we can understand that such a sentence was excerpted from the lyrics of a modern Lebanese song, for example (one of the one and thousand aired on a daily basis on Arabic radios...)

Standard Arabic is:
'uHibbuki "I love you (f.)"
'uHibbuka "I love you (m.)"

B'hatzlacha, Good luck, J.M.
