Palestino Soccer Team infuriates Chile’s Jews

Chile’s Jewish community outraged over Palestinian soccer team’s jerseys

Many in Chile’s Jewish community are outraged over a Palestinian soccer club’s jersey that depicts all of Israel as Palestinian land.

Club Deportivo Palestino of Chile released its new jersey that includes the number “1” in the shape of Israel and the Palestinian territories, implying all of the land is Palestinian, The Associated Press reported.

The president of Chile’s Jewish Community, Gerardo Gorodischer, is demanding an apology from the club and asking Chile’s soccer association to pull the jerseys.

Some of this reaches the absurd.

The ultimate answer to the Mideast may be to relocate the Palestinians out of the contested areas. I know that sounds awful; but the destruction of Israel would be worse.

I am not some heartless person. The Palestinians in the Mideast are besieged by both the Israelis and the Palestinian’s fellow Arabs. This abuse has driven the Palestinians nuttier and more violent than they were to begin with.

I am NOT going to diminish the Palestinian’s violence, nor the abuses the Palestinians are forced live under – whether under Israel’s harsh military control, or the even harsher Arab rule in Syria, Lebanon, Eygpt, etc.

However, there are 22 Arab states. Should Israel be destroyed to create a 23rd Arab state?!

I think not!

Compensated relocation of the Palestinians to elsewhere – as bad as that sounds – may be the only solution left, outside of eventual nuclear war.

There are no happy endings in the Mideast.

Paraguay says can be launch pad for Israeli technology in Latin America

Paraguay, with its politically and economically stable environment, could be an ideal springboard for Israeli technologies in Latin America, a minister from the country told The Jerusalem Post in an interview last week.

Paraguayan Trade and Investment Minister Gustavo Leite spoke with the Post on the sidelines of the Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibition and Conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday about the plethora of trade opportunities available between Israel and the South American nation.

With a favorable tax system and a stable business environment, Paraguay could be the key to providing Israeli innovators with comfortable and reliable access to the broader Latin American markets, Leite stressed.

Wow! Is that a change?!

A few years ago, they were saying Ciudad del Este was a terrorist haven (that was a bit exaggerated).

This is good news.

3rd Annual Latin-American Festival of Arab Cinema


Cinefertil – 3rd Annual Latin-American Festival of Arab Cinema
Notice how the background music blends Arab and Tango motifs
NOTICE THE SPONSORS AT THE END OF THE VIDEO

CineFertil is primarily an Argentine based group; but it deals with all of Latin America and the Arabs. Their website (Click Here)

The Festival is from November 1 to 11, 2013 in Buenos Aires.

These cultures (the Latin and the Arab) are inextricably connected.

There is no reason the West cannot bring in Latin America into the negotiations.

At the very least, Latin America could be asked to take in some Arabs from Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) in order to take the pressure off of Israel. The Palestinians should come in with enough money to not burden the Latins. Israel and the West could finance that.

The original video is by a group called Viajeros [Wanderers, Travelers].

Nabil Attar : Oud – A mideastern guitar-like instrument
Javier Ruiz : Guitar y programming
Gilad Atzmon : Invited Saxo Alto – Gilad Atzmon is an (in)famous anti-Zionist Israeli Jew

The background tango is Libertango, modified with an Arab background.


Latin America is starting to have very Arab sympathies.

Chilean Senator accuses IDF of Mapping Chile

From 2 days ago:

Chilean senator accuses IDF soldiers of mapping out country

Eugenio Tuma, of Palestinian descent, says undercover troops operating in the South American republic; has been accused of anti-Semitism

BY JTA October 27, 2013, 3:22 pm

Chilean lawmaker has said that undercover Israeli soldiers were “mapping out” his country.

Eugenio Tuma, a senator of Palestinian descent who has been accused before of anti-Semitic speech, said earlier this month on television that the soldiers were “dressed as civilians” and “mapping out the southern Chile region.”

Tuma, who chairs the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, added during his interview for the television show Controversia that the Chilean government “decided to do nothing given the power exerted by Israel and the US.”

This is a variation of the Andinia Conspiracy Theory. Herzl at one point did consider buying land in South America to set up a Jewish state. Since then, Neo-Nazis in Argentina, and Chile, have accused Israelis of spying out Patagonia.

The Jewish State – Theodore Herzl

Shall we choose Palestine or Argentine? We shall take what is given us, and what is
selected by Jewish public opinion. The Society will determine both these points.

Argentine is one of the most fertile countries in the world, extends over a vast area,
has a sparse population and a mild climate. The Argentine Republic would derive
considerable profit from the cession of a portion of its territory to us. …

Of course, this was 117 years ago; and Argentina – NOT CHILE – was only considered as an alternative to Palestine; but that does not stop the conspiracy theoriests.

After their three years in the army, Israeli youth often take tours all over South America. The conspiracy fruit loops have taken this as proof of an imminent Jewish invasion.

Notice:This is coming from a Chilean Senator of Palestinian descent. Palestinians are represented well above their numbers in the corridors of power in Chile. He will probably get away with this.

Two years ago, an Israeli was accused of setting forest fires in Israel. (Click Here). So these things have taken on a life of their own.
