Arabic Word of the Day

Today’s word is:

Generic Dictator Chant

Sorry for not posting since my arrival in Yemen. I keep busy doing nothing at all it seems. Fortunately, I got stuck at the internet cafe during a rainstorm so I thought I'd update the site.

I'm doing this from memory so it may be a tad off. It's a generic dictator chant!

(Insert random dictator's name) بالروح بالدم نفديك يا
{biruuh bidim nafdiik Ya (random dictator's name)}

This loosely translates to "With soul, with blood, we sacrifice - Oh (random dictator's name)!
