Retweeted by Steven Salaita @kazahann He's so goddamn sleazy. @QueenFilastine It's a sound I miss. @AElbehesi 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 @AElbehesi It was so cute. I don't think he even understands it to be an insult. He's prolly just imitating his jiddo tbh. @rashomania Not in Arabic, it isn't 🤣🤣🤣Today my kid referred to one of his classmates as "that son of a dog." The Arabic class we put him in is paying serious dividends.
