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 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 @_@

Palestine... The past we made, the present we are making to kick those f***ing Zionists out from our land in the near future :)

Great list! I thought it was interesting how some of the English words for countries sound nothing like the Arab words for Arab countries.

May 8, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/AbdallahAlNamura

Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Tunisia in both Arabic and English, the word is not Arabic! It's Phoenician and Aramaic :).
