South America Taking in Syrians

South America Welcomes Syrian Refugees
US News & World Report
Sept 30, 2015

… countries such as Argentina are receiving praise for their open-door policies.

… Compared to Europe, South America receives just a fraction of the people fleeing conflict from the Middle East … But the continent is increasingly becoming a destination for refugees. Venezuela announced in September that it would accept 20,000 Syrians, while Chile said it would accept 50 Syrian families. Argentina and Uruguay also have installed programs to accept Syrians.

South America has a history of absorbing large numbers of Arabs and assimilating them. It only makes sense that some refugees from Syria would be making their way to the continent.

In the past, most Arab immigrants to South America have been Christian. This new batch of refugees will be mostly Muslim. Hopefully, things will go well. We can only hope they assimilate.

Buenos Aires Music Festival Gets Palestinianized

Youth With Palestine Down with Genocide of the State of Israel in Gaza

Trans: Youth With Palestine
Down with Genocide of the State of Israel in Gaza

Pro-Palestinian activists who attended a music festival in Argentina have staged a massive rally in support of the Palestinian people in Buenos Aires.

The activists hoisted a large flag of Palestine in the festival’s venue and held up pro-Palestinian placards during the festival.

In the meantime, Palestinian Ambassador in the country, Qalid Mowaqqat told the activists that the Palestinian issue was an issue of any free people in the world.

Latin America has been radicalized against Israel.

Argentina is about 9% Arabic, but about half of those are Maronite Christians, and most of the rest are Syrian Christians. These would not be strong supporters of Palestine.

As noted here on this site, Saudi Arabia, and Iran, have pumped a lot of money into Latin America for propaganda – not so much for conversion to Islam, which occurs, but is minor – but to turn the continent against Israel.

Pro-Israel March in Argentina

Posted on You Tube: August 11, 2014

The YouTube poster was Marc100Arg, who is a a very pro-Israel YouTube poster.

marceloMarcelo100Arg has claimed, in the past, to be an Argentine Catholic of Italian extraction, but who knows? Now he claims to be Moroccan-Argentine, yet he left the former pro-Vatican statement after he suddenly claimed a Moroccan ancestry.

His videos are often very pro-Israel, and one wonders if he is a Hasbara (Israel Propaganda) activist. That being said, he does post videos which show that some Christians in Latin America do support Israel, even if they are drowned out by a much louder Arab community.

Marcelo condemns the Kirchner government in Argentina for corruption and for supporting Hamas.

Argentina has the largest Jewish community in the Spanish speaking world and the 6th largest after Israel.


So, it would be rather easy to bring out support for Israel in Buenos Aires. About 350,000 Argentines have some Jewish heritage, even if they are no longer Jewish by religion.

Argentina is unique in this. Jews have had a lot of influence in Argentina, unlike other Latin American countries.

I cannot vouch how recent this video is, but it was posted on August 11, 2014.
