House of Culture, Varela, Buenos Aires Province

Posted on YouTube: August 9, 2016

The Undersecretary of Culture and Education showed up at this Arab Dance workshop in the House of Culture. It was in Varela, a suburb of Buenos Aires. This was a municipal workshop which offered free courses: in this case, Arabic Dance.

Notice the young girls in the background.

This is considered an art form in Latin America, suitable even for young ladies.

It could not be any more mainstream.

Chile’s Arab School Was Attacked

Note:  Colegio in Spanish can mean school A famous Arab-Chilean School in Santiago, Chile (one of the pictures in our header) was attacked.

La Red El lunes en la mañana, los alumnos, apoderados y trabajadores del colegio situado en Las Condes, se percataron de la agresión. La comunidad judía en el país condenó el ataque.


On Monday morning, students, parents and school workers located in Las Condes, [discovered] an attack. The Jewish community in the country [Chile] condemned the attack.

Who knows who did this? While the Chilean government is hamstrung by a vocal, and powerful, Palestinian community, there is in Latin Culture a residue of prejudice against Arabs. Chile also has a large Evangelical community. It could have been anyone who did this. Tempers are flared because of  the Gaza War. Interestingly, the Jewish Community in Chile immediately condemned the attack. Note: In the video, there is  a Free Palestine drawing at (2:50). The Palestinians are a rich community in Chile.  You would not see rich Americans supporting Palestine.  South America has a different class hierarchy.  The Chilean government recalled its ambassador of the Gaza operation.

Mexican Islamic Youth


On YouTube – March 28, 2014

He is teaching the Arabic alphabet.

Islam is supposedly growing in Mexico, but still very small.

The 2010 census in Mexico showed less that 4,000 Muslims.

While Muslims in Mexico do make efforts to convert, Evangelicals will out do them.

Don’t be confused by scary reports in the news media. Converts are made, but how long they remain Muslim is another matter.

Essentially, this video is more of a curiousity than a troubling concern.
