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.

I am Palestinian – Chile

This is a new video from Chile that I translated.

The is the UGEP (General Union of Palestinian Students) in Chile.

The Palestinians are elites in Chile, and they are swinging the policies of an up and coming Chile. Chile is now first world, and the rising star of Latin America.

FREE PALESTINE - UGEP - Chile

FREE PALESTINE
Building a bridge of dialogue
in place of a Separational Wall.

The General Union of Palestinians Students (UGEP in Spanish) is not a small force to be ignored.

Yasser Arafat came out the Mideastern Branch of the Palestinian Student Union.

As you can see by that map on the poster, to the left, The UGEP does not recognize Israel at all.  As far as the UGEP is concerned, all of Israel is Palestine.

The video above portrays idealistic Chilean Youth. No doubt, many are.  What the video does not show is that the UGEP advocates the destruction of Israel.  The poster’s words advocate dialogue.  The poster’s map advocate destruction.

The UGEP, even in Chile where almost all Palestinians are Christian, advocates a very hard party line.

It may not look as severe because the women are Christians, and not burqa clad women with their roiling tongue curdling screams; but in the end, they advocate no less that their Muslim cousins.


Note: My own view is nuanced: Historically, the  Jew have the best claim to Israel for many reasons. I do not see Jews as invaders to their own patrimony in the Mideast.  The Jews do have a claim to the land.

But, sadly, neither can I deny that the Israelis ethnically cleansed the Palestinians in 1948 and 1967, nor that Palestinians were and are mistreated.  No nation is perfect.   We Americans were not perfect.   Chile – the nation these youth live in how – was guilty of ethnically cleansing its Mapuche and Quechua Indians.   No nation is perfect.

Innocent people were hurt in 1948; and yes, that includes innocent Arabs.

Unlike these youth, I do NOT  think the destruction of Israel as a homeland for the Jews is the answer. That would be insane.  Destroying or re-defining the Jewishness out of Israel is not the answer to the problem.

Israel has a right to be the homeland for the Jewish people.

There is too much hurt, too much history, and too much blood, for the Jews to surrender their state.

Sadly, there is too much hurt, too much history, and too much blood, for the Palestinians to forget.

Islam is too radicalized for the Israeli Jews to trust their fate to a one-state solution, which allows for the Palestinians to return; and which restores an angry Islamic majority to the land. Israeli Jews will never do it. Nor should they be asked to dissolve their state.


THE BEST SOLUTION
!

I think the best solution is to pay the Palestinians to leave for the West, preferably South America, which has  history of assimilating the Arabs well.

Pay them well … about $100,000 per Palestinian.

This may not be a totally just solution, but it is the least destructive.   I know it is awful to ask the Palestinians to surrender their claims to the land; but the only alternative is nuclear war – a nuclear war where they would be targeted.

I know some will say: It is not right to write the Palestinians out of history.  You are right!

Indeed it is wrong to write the Palestinians out of history.

It would be FAR MORE WRONG to write Israel out of history.

Ultimately – as cruel as it may sound – this cold logic applies:  If there are 22 Arab states, it would be wrong to dismantle the only Jewish state to correct the injustice and to restore another Arab state.

It is wrong to deny the Palestinians a right to return, but it is MORE WRONG to dismantle Israel as the homeland for the Jews.

There is no  completely just solution here … only a less destructive one.

Denying Israel is NOT the answer.

The Jewish right to Israel and Jerusalem is solid.

I am not saying Palestinians were not hurt; but the destruction of Israel is NOT the answer.

Finally, there is a spiritual side to this.

On the spiritual side, Israel is totally right.   There may be some political wrongs, but in the end, Israel has the better claim.
