Bolivia’s Evo Morales’ Stupidity


Posted on YouTube: August 15, 2014
Original Video posted on YouTube August 13, 2014

Note: I only translate the first 10 seconds. The rest of the translation was in the original.

This is coming from TeleSur, a transnational network started by the late Hugo Chavez. The network is Venezuelan controlled; and is sympathetic to Iran and Palestine, while hostile to Israel.

I post this here to show that Israel has lost Latin America for the most part,chiefly by neglect.

Arab TV Chile


YouTube – Jan 28, 2014

A Chilean-Arab Channel: ARABTV

They claim about one half million Arabs live in Chile, which is probably a bit understated. 800,000 – or 5% of Chile – would be more accurate.

Arab Dancers Furious at ChileVision

(Click Here) to see our previous LatinArabia post about an Arab Dancer who made it to Talent Chile. She was a big hit.
Note: There is a view of topless in the screenshoot, but the video itself is pixelated. Sorry, I usually do not post adult images, but this was for information purposes.
2nd Note: The protest was so furious, that the video has been pulled from the web. If you click the video start button, it now says private. I leave the link up only as a record.

Of course!  She was a big hit.   She went topless!

The problem is: Arabs, even Christian Arabs, are a morally conservative lot; and they are furious about this.  Chilean society is very conservative, even the non-Arab Christian majority.   This was not the country to go topless on a major TV program; and especially with a conservative Arabs, even though they are Christian.

This is not just Arab-Chileans.  A lot of non-Arabs take up Arab dancing as an art form.  They do not like it being degraded.  The art form has been embraced by Latin American women.   They are all furious.

This was put up on the web, two days ago.  They are furious about the incident.

Look at this:

Chilean Protest against Vulgar Dancer
I usually do not post adult images, but this is what the protestors posted on the net.

Calling all teachers and students of Arab  Dance in the country to a
PROTEST  at the offices of ChileVision to make it known to the executives
of this channel  and the country  that …

THIS  IS NOT ARAB DANCE

Enough of presenting the profession and passion of a decent people
as a nudist spectacular, vulgar, and of bad taste.

Date:  Thursday, October 31st.
Place:  Metro Manuel Montt
Time:  10:30 AM

They really were upset. Videos of Miss Gonzalez’s dance have been pulled from YouTube.

99% of Chile’s Arabs are Christian. So this is not Muslim outrage.  Many teachers and students of Arab Dancing are not even ethnic Arabs.  This is cultural outrage.
