تعيش أمريكا


Explanation:
This phrase cannot be literally translated. In Arabic we say Long Live America as meaning to God Bless America. I hope this helps.

بارك الله في أمريكا


Explanation:
"God bless America" has a clearly religious dimension which should not be overlooked in translation. The idea of "blessing" is an ancient idea found in even pre-Biblical literature. The Arabic word for it is BARAKA, which is close to its Hebrew counterpart. The Arabic word for "God" (with capital G) is ALLAH.
