Arab Dancing on Iquique TV

Channel 9, in Iquique, a Pacific coastal town in the tropical North of Chile.

A Christmas show. (Remember this is the Southern Hemisphere)

They brought in a dancing troupe of young Arab-Chilean ladies for TV.

This is gauge of how respected this is. You really would not see this so often on American TV.

As a side note: This would probably draw protests from the more conservative elements of American society; but it is apparently seen as cultural in South America.

Now, clearly, these Arabs are Christians. Jihadists shoot women for dressing like that.

All that aside, most Arabs are now intermarried, and what this shows is the mainstream penetration of Arab culture in South America.

Arab Youth in Viña del Mar

I want you to see this:

Arab Youth of Viña de Mar/Valparaiso Chile

Viña de Mar is a resort town on the Pacific with a climate similar to Los Angeles. Valparaiso is the adjacent city and a major port town.

They both have significant Arab populations.

Arabic dancing is ubiquitous in South America, and culturally equivalent to Celtic dancing in America. America has more Celts; South America more Arabs. But the cultural penetration is similar. Both have become mainstream, and now have drawn in membership from outside the original communities.

Look at the dancers. These are from middle class or wealthier families. A glance at their complexions will show that many are only partly-Arabic. Yet, this is how mainstream Arabic Dancing has become in South America.

In America, this might draw suspicion. In Chile, it draws respect, and to a degree, envy.

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 [most 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.

Put aside your pre-conceived notions, and be prepared for a shock.

There might be a possible solution to the Mideast Problem which can be found in Latin America.
