Mercosur Condemns Israel


Posted on YouTube: Jun 29, 2014

Mercosur (the Latin American common market) has condemned Israel over the war in Gaza – 2014.

Part of this is due to an elite Arab-Latino community with a lot of clout.

Note: Original Video was pulled by YT. So I had to show a video of Brazil’s Dilma Rouseff speaking to Mercosur. – July 2016 Cleanup

Palestine Issue More Pressing in Latin America

Palestine present more than ever in Latin American politics

Governmental and popular solidarity with Palestine is unprecedented following the latest Israeli invasion of Gaza.

Last updated: 09 Aug 2014 12:09

Mauricio Abu Ghosh, president of the Palestinian Federation of Chile, the most active pro-Palestine civil society entity in the country, says that popular solidarity with Palestine in Chile at the moment is unprecedented. He explains: “The last four years we witnessed a leap in communication thanks to social media. Today 95 percent of Chileans commenting on Palestine online are in favour of Palestine despite efforts by the Zionist lobby to always portray Jews as the permanent victim.”

Nevertheless, what may be called the Palestinian lobby in Chile has managed to penetrate the media, to expose a different point of view through several prominent faces of the Palestinian community. One of them is Daniel Jadue, the mayor of a Recoleta municipality in Santiago, who often goes on TV to argue passionately for the Palestinian cause.

When asked about the secret of the community’s success in putting enough pressure on the government to recall Chile’s ambassador from Tel Aviv, Abu Ghosh laughs and says he won’t reveal the recipe and simply mentions members of parliament and influential businessmen of Palestinian descent as fundamental contributors to the successful lobbying. He adds: “We now aim at putting pressure on the government to cut all diplomatic ties with Israel.”

Interesting article from Al Jazeera. Arab ethnics have joined with the left to flip South American opinions.

Why is Latin America Coddling Hamas?

Why is Latin America Coddling Hamas?

Five countries — Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador and Peru — have recalled their ambassadors from Israel, a harsh step rarely taken in the diplomatic world. When was the last time they pulled their envoys from any other nation, including serial abusers of human rights such as Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria?

An article from Algemeiner – a pro-Israel/Jewish site.

Originally from: Miami Herald

The author asked: Why is Latin America Coddling Hamas?

The answer is simple: Over 20 Million Arab-Latinos in Latin America. Israel has ignorned them. The Arab countries have not. Though most (90% plus) Arab-Latinos are Christian, they have been propagandized against Israel by Saudi and Iranian propaganda.

Chile has 500,000 Palestinian-Chileans (Almost all Christian) who are elites in their country. 3x the number of Christian Palestinians in the Mideast. They are a power bloc in Chile.
