Aymelek Ballet – Arab Dance Encounter

Posted on YouTube: May 17, 2017

The International Day of Dance.

A webpage about the impresaria: Natalia Hayat

She has a post graduate degree from the University of Chile.

So put aside that this is just merely bellydance. Apparently, this is taken quite seriously in South America.

TelesSur on Nakba Day

Posted on YouTube: May 16, 2017

TeleSur’s report on Nakba Day (Day of Arab Catastrophe), 2017. No translation is necessary.

May 15 is the Day of Israel’s Independence Day. However, the Palestinians refer to it as the day of their catastrophe, their expulsion from the land.

Side Note: While May 15 is Israel’s Independence Day on the Western (Gregorian) Calendar, the Israelis use a Jewish calendar to celebrate the day, and it can change on the Western Calendar from year to year.

Venezuela runs a network TeleSur (TeleSouth) which broadcasts to all of Latin America. It is very leftist. Venezuela has a sort of alliance with Iran, so it is very biased.

This is what is being fed to Latin America.

If you are like most Americans (or Europeans), you probably know very little about Chile. The Arabs, however, know a lot about Chile. If Sicilians, Greeks and Dubliners want to move to New York, the Arabs want to move to South America. Chile is particularly interesting to Palestinian Arabs as the largest number of Palestinians, outside the Mideast, lives in Chile.

Very interesting Arabic language videos about Chile. I do not speak Arabic, so I use a translation app, which you can get (Here). It’s free.

Look at comments in Arabic under the video (Click Here). The app can translate them for you. You will notice that Chile beckons large in the Arab mind.

The reason Chile is not overrun with Arabs is that it sets high barriers for immigrants, but still Chile is five percent (5%) Arabic in ancestry, and they are a very powerful constituency.

This next video below is a set of instructions on how Arabs can become Chilean. Unfortunately, the translation app does not translate writing on video, but look at the comments below this next video (Click Here). Chile is an Emerald City calling to Arabs. They want to go there.


Central Chile has a sort of subtropical Mediterranean Climate very similar to coastal Israel (Palestine), Lebanon, Syria, or North Africa – well, except for the cold ocean water; the Mediterranean is much warmer than the Humboldt Current off of Chile. Other than that, the climate is identical. Perfect for Arabs. And there is an internationally well known (At least to Latinos and Arabs) Palestinian community in Chile. Very powerful and rich.
South America has a history of absorbing Arabs well.

And, this is not just Chile. Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, and Brazil all have large Arab constituencies.

This can no longer be ignored. The Arabs and Latins are well aware of each other and are starting to form trading blocs.

The idea of a Latin American-Arab summit started 10 years ago thanks to Lula da Silva, Brazil’s former president. However, until now only four summits have taken place, the last in Riyadh. There is a lot in common in the histories of Arab and Latin American countries. Both were subjected to harsh colonialism, and much of the colonial legacy and its memory continue to this day.

Note: The writer underestimates the number of Arabs in South America. It is around 25 milllion, not 15. One has to remember that many Lebanese Christians will often not self-identify as Arabs. This can lead to very odd results where demographics may list the Lebanese as outnumbering the Arabs in a given country.

This site is set up so my fellow Americans (and Westerners) can apprise themselves of what is really going on … DOWN SOUTH AMERICAN WAY!
