This Is Tunisia : When Ordering Speak Arabic!

No worries this is not a new ad in Tunisia and I don't think it will work either, but in a Philly Cheesesteak joint,(Geno's), the owner has posted small signs telling customers, "This Is AMERICA: WHEN ORDERING SPEAK ENGLISH.".
Joseph Vento (Geno's owner) whose grandparents struggled to learn English after immigrating from Sicily in the 1920s, said he posted the sign about six months ago amid concerns over immigration reform and the increasing number of customers who could not order in English when they wanted Philly's gooey, greasy specialty — fried steak, sliced or chopped, in a long roll, with cheese and fried onions.

it reminds of Nicolas Sarkozy...

English was the nation's language before Columbus and it should be returned to its rightful pre-eminence!
