LOL i love the guide! So when we watch the movie, we will know who was behind getting those actors to speak in Arabic! I'd looove to see jamie foxx say: Eeeewa ya wad :P

You're right Saudi deserved to win! I have a Ukranian girl in my class. Needless to say, things are going to heat up very soon, especially, when i told her to her face that we're going to kick their a**!

Just make sure EVERYONE, that in EVERY SOJOOD YOU MAKE, you pray for the green falcons..!
