A World You Never Knew Existed

If you are like me, and most Americans – and dare I say, most Westerners as well – you never knew about the major Arab subculture in South America.


And that’s just Chile. Argentina and Brazil and have more!

Europe has about 5+ million Arabs [many Euro-Muslims are not Arab] in a continent of 740 Million people, and yet we hear nothing but panic.

Egads! Eurabia! The Arabs are coming! The Arabs are coming!

What if I were to tell you that South America alone has 25+ Million Arabs, most of whom are assimilated, Christians, and getting along quite well in their respective countries.

WHAT?!

Yes! It is true. What did South America do that was so right; and what can we learn from them.

Each country in South America has a different profile. All they share is a common Latin language; and even that shows heavy dialectal differences.

Likewise, the Arabs among the Latins show some considerable differences.

A Truly Amazing Video


Published on YouTube: December 6, 2017

An amazing video. Generally true … but … though incredible …

the author underestimates the numbers of Arabs in Latin America. This is because many Lebanese Christians will not identify as Arabs, and often assimilate so rapidly that they lose any ethnic identification.

He also overestimated the numbers of Muslims in Latin America which, though growing, is still relatively small as a percentage.

WHAT HE DOES GET RIGHT – AND MAGIFICENTLY SO – IS THAT THE LEBANESE CHRISTIANS WERE WESTWARD LOOKING AND EAGER TO ASSIMILATE.

Still, I recommend his history site: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1vVNQN-TCy8d3Mb_Owr2Kw

Hanan Eyuni at Donde Mismo


Posted on YouTube on December 1, 2017

The Dancer is Hanan Eyuni.

As best I can tell, this is in Chile, in Metro Santiago.

This is the club’s Facebook page.

Again, in South America, this is seen as an art form. Parents send their daughters to dance school to learn this.
