Double Nationality: Benefiction / Malediction

Double nationality is the favor of belonging to more than one country or nation.

Word of the Day:  Lah ybarak (Algerian Derdja)

"Lah ybarak" is one of the first words that I learnt in Arabic, among "Assalamu Alaeikum", "Labas?" and "Hamdullah". These expressions are all part of the Algerian colloquial dialect, the Derdja.
