On playing a Lebanese role, Marisa has stated:

Maltese has a lot of Arabic in it – counting to 10 in Maltese is exactly the same as counting to 10 in Arabic – so it wasn’t something I was coming completely new to… I used my grandad to learn all of the Arabic he could teach me through Maltese, in particular, to get the sounds right, because they’re totally different. It’s not like French or Spanish, the Arabic sounds sit in a totally different part of the mouth, so I tried to get all that right first, and then when it came to the actual classes, I really took them seriously as I was determined to get it right.

          Rilassati era uno scherzo tra i senatori del sito, dato che Bearboy è norvegese (in parte) e Madman è svedese. Humour di Follers. Poi Manila credo che abiti in Norvegia o qualcosa del genere. Stop.

          • porkarella says:

            Ma che cazzo vuol dire i senatori????
            Una manica di pirli. Dici stop ma continui a dire cacate e mentire per poi negarlo di nuovo.
            Dacci un taglio.

    This girl is full of crap.

    Just because Maltese language is part of Semitic language, this does not make her Arab ad honorem. Maltese are Catholic and there’s a strong Romance (Sicilian) influence everywhere. And from other cultures as well.

    Neither her first name or her father’s one are even of Semitic origin, they are Italian. “Abela” is a Maltese surname of distant Aragonese origin (via Sicily).

    Unsure about the Libya connection, she just may have ancestors born there.

      Interestingly enough people say I look Lebanese as well?

      • andrew says:

        Most Lebanese in US/Americas neither are or identify as Arabs. They are Christians. You look Jewish, at best.

      • andrew says:

        @bearboy

        The user “porkarella”(who just popped out from the garbage can of his sheepshagger island where he /she lives) said I am either:

        1 A “South American”

        2 A “Taliban”

        – – —–

        Which of these three cultures should I embrace?

        • jackson9 says:

          Andrew you are right. Most Lebanese in my country of the U.S. are Christians. Quote “You look Jewish, at best.” Also, true. I look like David Schwimmer :-) Ethnic any chance you’re going to please bring back ethnic connect. I would love to connect with people here and see if people think if I look like David Schwimmer. I am Irish + Norwegian :)
          Sincerely Bearboy/Jackson9

          • porkarella says:

            If you look like him means you’re Semitic not Northern Euro and Scandinavian.
            Real Irish and Norwegians from Europe don’t look like you ask it to me a real European living in Europe I met them I know how they are not to Andrew an Hispanic wannabe Euro who faking his identity.

          @bearboy

          The user “andrew”(who just popped out from the garbage can of his goatshagger/kidnapper& dismemberer land where he lives) aka NA-ME /Central -South America says to be:

          1 A “South American”

          2 A “Taliban”

          – – —–

          He must embraces all of them being a Mohamed-Pedro.

      She’s part right Malta has a very strong very deep Arab identity the others are minors compared to this one.
      Sicily like the rest of South Italy has it super Arabic too for the same reason of Malta, it’s the dominant.
      If you listen to a Maltin speaking Maltese you listen to an Arabic languag but slightly different cause it’s mixed a tiny part to the others languages brought by the others settlers.
      Her face is typical Arab not European, I confirm the things you say about her name and surname cause I’m a real Italian from Italy living here not a fake from Usa or others non Euro countries do your remember it I told ya lots of time, these info you found in English on net are true -sometimes we can find reality-
      but despite her name and surname she’s Levantine.

        Ancora qua a dire cazzate a caso?

        • porkarella says:

          Lo dice il talebano o sudamericano del cazzo e di merda che si spaccia per europeo perché non accetti di essere quello che sei veramente: un negraccio complessato che non accetta di essere negro.
          Accetta di essere non bianco devi affrontare la realtà invece che negarla non puoi cambiare il tuo dna colorato questa è la tua triste realta sei nato negro e lo sarai sempre solo quello.
          Tiè! Te lo metto sempre nel culo non puoi farci nulla ti fotto sempre Mohamed-Carlos del gazzo! Tiè tiè e ritiè.

          • andrew says:

            Ma cosa ne sai te? Fai ridere. E piantala con le storielle degli Arabi. Te manco sai cos’è un Arabo, e lascia stare il concetto di “Semita”. Ripassa i libri di scuola (se non ti hanno espulso).

        • porkarella says:

          Accetta di essere negro sicuramente sei l’ennesimo arabo che si crede europeo quindi bianco e vuoi pure fare le lezioni di scienza ma non lo sei sei solo un negro come lo sono gli arabi e smettila di usare il traduttore che ti tradisci da solo fai degli errori grammaticali gravi non spacciarti per ciò che non sei.

        • porkarella says:

          Il fatto che non vedi il tuo errore gravissimo che si insegna ai bambini piccoli di non fare è l’ennesima dimostrazione che non sai parlare bene la lingua che usi impropiamente te lo metti in culo da solo.
          Perché continui con questa farsa che sappiamo benissimo che non sei oltre che italiano e finlandese manco europeo.
          Non puoi cambiare la tua razza negra mettitelo in testa.
