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.

Alphabet Lesson from Islam Recife


From YouTube: Jan 11, 2014

The is from a group called Islam Recife.

Recife is a town in Northern Brazil.

The Islamic aspect may not thrill you, but in reality, Brazil is in the midst of a major Evangelical Revival.

Apparently, it is affiliated with the Islamic Center of Recife: (Click Here)

Brazil is now over 26% Evangelical

Evangelicalism

The largest concentration of Evangelicals can be found in the United States, with 28.9% of population or 91.76 million, less than a quarter of the world figure. The next most populous is Brazil with 26.3% or 51.33 million.

According to the 2000 Census, 15.4% of the Brazilian population was Protestant. A recent research conducted by the Datafolha institute shows that 25% of Brazilians are Protestants, of which 19% are followers of Pentecostal denominations. The 2010 Census found out that 22.2% were Protestant at that date.

Look at those figures. Brazil is exploding with an growing Evangelical Revival. Roughly 2 million converts a year.

Meanwhile, the official Brazilian Census of 2010 lists only 35,167 Muslims (Click Here)

What this means is that, while Muslims are there in Brazil and have a media presence, their numbers are miniscule. In reality, given the trends, it is impossible to doubt that many are converting to Evangelicalism.

What this means in fact is that if 1 million Palestinians were paid to move to Brazil, over time – and probably very quickly – they would convert to an Evangelical sect.
