History and Faiza Al Manzur Dancing at Lebanese Club, Uruguay

Posted on YouTube: Aug 5, 2016

At Punta Pocitos (a barrio in Montevideo), Uruguay.

The dancer is: Faiza Al Manzur

Her website is: www.faizaalmanzur.com

I really recommend seeing her website and facebook page.

Miss Al Manzur can usually be found at the Lebanese Club of Uruguay.

The Lebanese Club has a long history in Uruguay. It goes back to 1905, when Uruguay set out to outlaw Asian immigration, which would have prohibited Arab immigration. By that time, yes, even that early, the Lebanese and Syrian community in Uruguay was large enough to intervene and get an exemption for Syrians and Lebanese.

This is their history page (In Spanish). Be aware, however, it is connected with the Lebanese Embassy in Uruguay.

The point is: Even as early as 1905, there was a powerful Arab community in Uruguay.

Irony of Irony. Guadalajara is named after a Spanish city of Guadalajara. The name comes from an Arab word, (Wadi hijara) which means River of Stones.

Apparently, the Spanish and the Mexicans have forgotten that it took their own Christians 781 years to free themselves from the Muslims.

I find it fascinating that they embrace Arab culture so fully.

Arab dance is much bigger in the Latin World than in the USA.
