Hi
I was wondering how to say these sentences in Egyptian Arabic:

1- i don't want to do anything that will put me a in a compromising situation (for example a situation where if people walk in they might think the worst. A situation which leaves someone vulnerable to danger especially of discredit or suspicion e.g. she found herself in a compromising situation.

I thought of 'mawqif mu7rig' - just wondering if there is anything else as Im not sure 'mu7rig' gets this accross.

2- I dont want to do anything that will compromise my values/principles

3- the secret mission was compromised and had to be abandoned.

Thanks

    Hi,
    I thought of 'mawqif mu7rig' - just wondering if there is anything else as Im not sure 'mu7rig' gets this accross.
    I can only think of موقف محرج .
    2- I dont want to do anything that will compromise my values/principles
    You can say مش عايز أعمل حاجة تخالف/ضد مبادئي أو أخلاقي
    3- the secret mission was compromised and had to be abandoned.
    I think we can say المهمة السرية اتكشفت/انكشفت وما نفعش نكمِّلها or ما كانش ينفعل تِكْمَل/تستمر
