Fashion TV – Bolivia


From Bolivia – Apr 25, 2012

Again, Arab culture thoroughly penetrates Latin America.

Again, the Arabes are heavily Christian. Very little Muslims among them.

Bolivia, according to Wikipedia, has only about 2,000 Muslims, out of a population of 10 million. This is equivalent to 1 in 50,000 people. Or actually 0.02% Muslim.

I cannot get a good estimate for the number of Arabs in Bolivia, though obviously, they have affected the culture.

The one exception may be Argentina, but even Argentina’s Arabs are about 90% Christian; and the Muslims in the Arab Community are usually non-practicing.

Muslims in Argentina are about 1% of the population; and that may be exaggerated.
