Arse is an Israeli slang word for someone, usually male, who listens to loud, shitty trance and arabic music, wears too-tight jeans, Pumas, and track jackets (usually all in bright colors), and is generally a dick. Arseim (the plural version) can be found at shopping malls, wandering around and generally pissing everyone off with their monumental lameness.

"Seeing as I am a really huge arse, I'm going to go spend my mother's money on a new pair of Adidas and then skulk around like a dick for a while."

British (rather than exclusively Irish as previously asserted) pronunciation of 'ass'. To be used in the same context. Like the red squirrel by its grey cousin, this particular word is danger of being subsumed by the increasingly popular 'ass'. Can I urge you all to protect your arse if you want to keep it.
1. Your arse is quite delicious
2. Oh ARSE! I have spilt my pint.
3. Your mouth smells of arse.

7.
The original variant of the vulgar word "ass" in American English.

Etymology:

Until the Victorian period, "ass" had no profane meaning and simply referred to what we now call the donkey. Because of the increasingly non-rhotic nature of standard British English, "arse" was often rendered "ass". The age of Victorian propriety resulted in the rechristening of the horse-like animal, changing the name to "donkey" to avoid any improper inferences. This usage was also adopted in America, which is why the word "arse" is not usually used in the United States. Some people in Britain have adopted the American version in writing. Although before World War I they were similar, the British pronunciations of "ass" (IPA /æs/) and "arse" (IPA /α:s/) are now quite different.

Source: Wikipedia.

Sorry, but "ass" just sounds more pleasantly vulgar.
Linguistic elitist Briton arses, like the ones on this definition, are known for their pathetic uses of etymology to try and insult the intellect of Americans and -- in this particular case -- Canadians.
