1941 Social Guide to the Arab Colony in Chile

Social Guide to the Arab Colony in Chile
Syrian – Palestinian – Lebanese

Notice: It was published in 1941, under the Auspices of The Palestinian Club. This community was already rich and influential by the 1940s.

Notice also that they did not call themselves South Syrians.  I have nothing against Israel, but the Palestinians had a Palestinian identity by that time. It was not invented in 1964 as some claim it was. Look at the booklet cover. It says Palestina, not Sursiria (South Syrian).  Palestinian is clearly called out as their identity.

Again, it is not anti-Israel to admit the truth. They had a collective identity even by that early date.

The Palestinian-Chilean Community, though heavily Christian, supports the Palestine cause, and this has twisted Chile’s foreign policy. Palestinian-Chileans are rich and activist, and punch well above their numbers in the population of Chile. With the delegation was a famous Chilean Lefist, Camila Vallejo.

Again, you would not see antics like these from American Congressmen.

Translated by Chrome app. I made some minor grammatical corrections: errors common to all translation engines. They always fail with pronouns and articles.

The News Source is Chilean, though the story concerns Brazil.
