Well our dear Angela, So you tell us what did he write that is so great and let me help you, he wrote (and I did edit it so any Arabic speaker can read it):

Seamus: SMACH LI KAWAJA ANA MA B'ARUF QUAIS FIL ARABIA......MAFISH MASCHARA......MAJNUN

Now here is what is saying:

Ismah lia ya khawaja ini ana la a3rif Quais (I have no idea what this word means. Qissa may be?) fi al-lugha al-3Arabiya........mafish maskhara...majnun

(Notice that in Judeo-Arabic the letter khah becomes a hah or ch as in his maschara and in Arabic the letter khah as in maskhara is a khah and not a hah)

So he is saying:

Allow me O foreinger I do not know "Quais" (sic) in the Arabic language.....no more ill manner (also read as debauchery)....crazy

So this is what he wrote and I'm sure you will find such examples of "great" Arabic in the likes of Arabic for Dummies.

Notice that Arabs would regard your likes as a khawajaya or another bakistaniya who is not an Arab. After all islam is the religion of the arabs and you ain't one.

So wanna share with us what is so great about what he worte?

Submitting....
