I have been asked to explain the meaning of the expression appearing above the words "A Frog's Eye View". Well, in honour of the liberation of Kurdistan from the oppressive rule of Saddam, I decided to post my name in Jewish Neo-Aramaic from Kurdistan. It's quite simple: baqqa is Neo-Aramaic for "frog" and "mqarqra" is Neo-Aramaic for "ribbity".

I will perhaps post some Jewish Neo-Aramaic selections from the Passover Haggada tomorrow.
