Re-Arabizing Chilean Palestinians

Latin American Palestinians met in Chile this weekend to inaugurate a new cultural event Taqalid (Traditions). A sort of Latin-Palestinian Congress to re-Arabize the Palestinians in Latin America, not just Chile.

Israel will have a real contest with this group. The Palestinians of Latin America (especially Chile) are very rich, prosperous, well-connected, and well-organized, as you can see: [Notice: The event was held at the elite social club: CLUB PALESTINO  (0:33) in the top video].

Though Latin-Palestinians are almost totally Christian, and though some of their ancestors fled the Mideast in the 19th century to get away from Muslim persecutions, they are incredibly hostile to Israel, today. Unlike Muslims, though, they can put on a good respectable face to this anti-Zionism.

SANTIAGO – Chile’s Palestinian community will celebrate its heritage with a cultural and sports festival organized in the South American country beginning Friday.

Under the name Taqalid, or traditions, the Central Bureau of Chilean Palestinian organizations will host a weekend event filled with food, exhibitions and musical performances from Palestinian artists, as well as, sports competitions including soccer, tennis and tawle, a traditional Middle Eastern board game.

“This is a chance to celebrate the Palestinian traditions in family and to get a little closer to our land in spite of difficulties and distance,” said Nadia Garib, president of the Palestinian Federation of Chile and Taqalid’s spokesperson.

From Egypt – Hany Morgan in Arica, Chile


Posted on YouTube: May 10, 2017

Mr. Morgan is teaching Sephora (Sephardic) percusssion to a group of young ladies.

This can be tricky, as Sephardic usually refers to the Jews of North Africa. So I do not know if Mr. Morgan is Jewish or Arab. However, as is clear, they are more interested in the culture than the conflict.

As is noted, this subculture is very big in South America, extending beyond the root ethnicities.
