South America Taking in Syrians

South America Welcomes Syrian Refugees
US News & World Report
Sept 30, 2015

… countries such as Argentina are receiving praise for their open-door policies.

… Compared to Europe, South America receives just a fraction of the people fleeing conflict from the Middle East … But the continent is increasingly becoming a destination for refugees. Venezuela announced in September that it would accept 20,000 Syrians, while Chile said it would accept 50 Syrian families. Argentina and Uruguay also have installed programs to accept Syrians.

South America has a history of absorbing large numbers of Arabs and assimilating them. It only makes sense that some refugees from Syria would be making their way to the continent.

In the past, most Arab immigrants to South America have been Christian. This new batch of refugees will be mostly Muslim. Hopefully, things will go well. We can only hope they assimilate.

Buenos Aires Music Festival Gets Palestinianized

Youth With Palestine Down with Genocide of the State of Israel in Gaza

Trans: Youth With Palestine
Down with Genocide of the State of Israel in Gaza

Pro-Palestinian activists who attended a music festival in Argentina have staged a massive rally in support of the Palestinian people in Buenos Aires.

The activists hoisted a large flag of Palestine in the festival’s venue and held up pro-Palestinian placards during the festival.

In the meantime, Palestinian Ambassador in the country, Qalid Mowaqqat told the activists that the Palestinian issue was an issue of any free people in the world.

Latin America has been radicalized against Israel.

Argentina is about 9% Arabic, but about half of those are Maronite Christians, and most of the rest are Syrian Christians. These would not be strong supporters of Palestine.

As noted here on this site, Saudi Arabia, and Iran, have pumped a lot of money into Latin America for propaganda – not so much for conversion to Islam, which occurs, but is minor – but to turn the continent against Israel.

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.

Posted on YouTube: August 6, 2014

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.
