*فرنسا = "Faransaa" - Kings of the croissant, France!! ;3
*إسبانيا = "Isbaanyaa" (but said "Ispaanyaa" with a light 'p' - remember, there's no letter 'p' in Arabic, it is often replaced with a 'b') = Kings of the most common holiday destination? Spain!! - (IDK much, someone say a better one) :P

*Ok I'm gonna stop here cus the list goes on and on and on ... Any specific countries, you know who to ask! ;p
*Thanks for reading, any Qs, Pr or suggestions I am open!! ;) have a nice evening! :D
Yep that's right! ;p Just the last country in the Arabic world for the sun to set on is "المغرب" so yeah I think it kinda links to say 'sunset' too ;) Haven't seen you on for a while... Or maybe it's just me... ;D Good Night! (where I live anyways)
LOL I'm pretty sure that was the same with me or close... I don't remember now ;p
Lol I was checking through my email and it turns out it was the exact same time! XD it depends where you live, I don't live in my country, I live in England ;)
Hhhhhhh they won't believe that!! anyway, nowhere is better that home ^ــــ^
Lucky! I've never been to Algeria, England's just bbbooorrriinnng @_@ (no offence)
LOL I took another impression about offence there..(none I'm affected by Agatha Christie)
By the way, that's strange! people here wish to live in England, you know, Algeria is backward =)
True, they always think that England is better, they think we're having the time of our life getting rich and stuff... pffft and there I am with frozen blue toes looking out the window at the constant rain (in fact, raining right now!), bored cus I have no relatives in England (like they're all together and we're here lonely) and getting piled in with hmwk (not money!) ... result: حسد @_@
Thank you very much very very much to put Palestine! Thanks, thanks, thanks and thanks!
Palestine... The past we made, the present we are making to kick those f***ing Zionists out from our land in the near future :)
Yay I like it, Thanks a million for making this awesome post again! UV right a way (lol to lazy to write up voting) No Arabic sentence today. :( sorry
Great list! I thought it was interesting how some of the English words for countries sound nothing like the Arab words for Arab countries.
Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Tunisia in both Arabic and English, the word is not Arabic! It's Phoenician and Aramaic :).
