Dalida, from a time when Arabic wasn't "evil"

For those who didn't know her, Dalida is an Egyptian-Italian signer who sang in many languages including French and Arabic, lived in France, and was a makor influence on French culture!

Back then, 1980's, you didn't get arrested at US airports for having class notes in Arabic. Imagine multilingual Dalida going through airport security today. Speaks 8 languages? She must be "unpatriotic".
