    Wrong thread I believe. I am being told that you are an Indian false-flagger. Kindly do not troll.:coffee:

    This is the first time that I am going to post photos of Mauritania. I do not think that this country has been covered in this thread as the only Arab country.

    I am pleasantly surprised.

    Interestingly enough there is a quite significant Mauritanian diaspora in KSA (one of the largest in the world) and even we have Saudi Arabian citizens of Mauritanian origin, including a few famous clerical families. Mauritanian Arabic (Hassaniya) is also very much famous and well-liked and understandable by Near Eastern Arabs.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hassaniya_Arabic

    There is also Chinguetti = شنقيط (World Unesco Heritage Site):

    Videos of interest:









    Very nice.

    @Arabi do you know of any documentaries about Mauritanians in KSA? I remember watching one ages ago but now I cannot find any!

    Mummies were found in the New Kingdom tomb that belongs to a royal goldsmith in a burial shaft [Nariman El-Mofty/AP]

    http://indianexpress.com/article/wo...very-of-3500-years-old-tomb-in-luxor-4835801/


    Egypt has announced the discovery in the southern city of Luxor of a pharaonic tomb belonging to a royal goldsmith who lived more than 3,500 years ago during the reign of the 18th dynasty.

    The tomb is located on the west bank of the river Nile in a cemetery where noblemen and top government officials are buried.

    Antiquities Minister Khaled el-Anany said the tomb is not in good condition, but it contains a statue of the goldsmith and his wife as well as a funerary mask. He said a shaft in the tomb contained mummies belonging to ancient Egyptian people who lived during the 21st and 22nd dynasties.

    The tomb was discovered by Egyptian archeologists and the fanfare surrounding Saturday’s announcement is designed to boost Egypt’s slowly recovering tourism industry.

    I am not trying to be rude here but I think that you have missed the purpose of this thread. This thread's purpose is to post photos of Arab countries. What you have posted is off-topic albeit interesting. It deserves its own thread in fact.

    What is the purpose of posting the leader of Hamas in this thread? Have I missed something?

    Kindly delete your two posts as they are off-topic. Please don't take the content of my post to heart as I do appreciate some of your posts and threads that you write and create.

    Your post 738 is fitting in this thread for example.

    May I ask why you have ignored the post that I have just reposted (just deleted the same older post) again?

    I will try again.

    ^^ Look at all that greenery.

    If one didn't know better, you'd think this was Hawaii or something, not Oman. Incredible.

    Oman is a jewel. I can recommend watching Anthony Bourdain's episode from when he visited Oman earlier this year.

    Nice photo and beautiful Arabian horses but I will try once again. Did you not understand what was written earlier in this thread?

    What are you blabbering about?

    What are you doing? Are you a bot or just a spammer?
