A Mosque in Mendoza, Argentina

Mendoza is in the interior of Argentina, where the Islamic population is very small. I doubt this mosque is large. It is probably recent as well.

Saudi money may be supporting this.

The 5th Arab Dance Show in Mendoza, Argentina


Found this video here (Click Here) only a few hours after it was posted.
The show is for tonite, Nov 10, 2012.

WHAT A COMMERCIAL!

What is more important is that you see how mainstream this is in South America. Would you see this on American TV?

The translation is not perfect; so forgive any errors.

Harvest Festival, Mendoza

At the Fiesta de la Vendimia (Harvest Festival), where this dance occured in March 2012 – (remember March is the start of South America’s autumn) – these dancers were pulled by a tractor trailer with the name of Arab Car World. Not that a sign on the trailer says Arab Planet.


From Mendoza, Argentina

Mendoza, Argentina is a province in West Central Argentina with a capital city (of the same name). Greater Mendoza is the largest wine growing region of South America; and is also noted for olive oil production.

The climate is quasi-Mediterranean.

There are a lot of Arabs in the area.

They have an Islamic Center in Mendoza; but again, one has to remember that Islam is still weak in Argentina, and most Muslims are not practicing. Most Arabs in Latin America are Christian.
