Re-Arabizing Chilean Palestinians

Note: Bottom Video is Translated to English

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.

A World You Never Knew Existed

If you are like me, and most Americans – and dare I say, most Westerners as well – you never knew about the major Arab subculture in South America.


And that’s just Chile. Argentina and Brazil and have more!

Europe has about 5+ million Arabs [many Euro-Muslims are not Arab] in a continent of 740 Million people, and yet we hear nothing but panic.

Egads! Eurabia! The Arabs are coming! The Arabs are coming!

What if I were to tell you that South America alone has 25+ Million Arabs, most of whom are assimilated, Christians, and getting along quite well in their respective countries.

WHAT?!

Yes! It is true. What did South America do that was so right; and what can we learn from them.

Each country in South America has a different profile. All they share is a common Latin language; and even that shows heavy dialectal differences.

Likewise, the Arabs among the Latins show some considerable differences.

Ashrawi meets with an official Chilean delegation — of Leftists

The Palestinian-Chilean Community, though heavily Christian, supports the Palestine cause, and this has twisted Chile’s foreign policy. Palestinian-Chileans are rich and activist, and punch well above their numbers in the population of Chile. With the delegation was a famous Chilean Lefist, Camila Vallejo.

Again, you would not see antics like these from American Congressmen.

The News Source is Chilean, though the story concerns Brazil.
