Even More on the Radicalization of Chile’s Soccer


Posted on YouTube on Mar 2, 2015

The name of the documentary (this is a teaser) is Cuatro Colores (Four Colors) based on the four colors of the Palestinian flag [red, green, black, white], and the four colors of the soccer team, Palestino, in Chile.

NOTE: The translation in the film says: Club Deportivo Palestino. “Deportivo” just means Sports. It should have been translated: Sports Club Palestino, or more accurately, Palestinian Sports Club.

The Palestinian community in Chile is:

1) Very Prosperous
2) Very Powerful
3) Politically connected
4) Radicalized against Israel

In the 1920s, Palestinian-Chileans founded their own soccer team. By the 1950s, it was a professional team in Chile. The Palestinian-Chilean community has used their successful professional soccer team for political ends.

In 2014, the Palestino Soccer team caused a major controversy when they issued a sports jersey – the Euros say kit – which had a map on the back of their jerseys that erased the state of Israel. Needless to say, worldwide, the Jewish people were furious. (Click Here)

The team was forced to withdraw the jersey.

But this is the nature of the Palestinian community in Chile; and the nature of the soccer/football team they support.

The fans call themselves “Baisanos,” based on the Spanish word for fellow countrymen: “Paisano.” The Palestinian immigrants to Chile would recognize other Palestinian immigrants, and call them, “Paisano,” a fellow countryman – from Palestine, as it were.

Except that Arabs cannot pronounce the letter P, and so “Paisano,” became “Baisano.”

Their descendants and fans of the Palestino soccer team picked up the mispronunciation as a term of endearment, and call themselves, “Baisanos.”

This would be curious enough, but they also recently picked up another term: Intifada, as this fan picture demonstrates.

Los Baisanos – Intifada
Notice the use of both terms: Baisano and Intifada

So, the soccer team has become a symbol of radicalized anti-Zionism, not only in Chile, but around the world.

Though chiefly unknown here in the USA – we Americans do not follow soccer – the Palestino soccer/football team has become somewhat of a worldwide phenomenon. It is followed by the Palestinians in the contested areas in the Mideast as if it were a local team. Members of the Chilean team often visit the contested areas regularly.

Over time, the CD [Club Deportivo/Sports Club] Palestino jersey has become somewhat of a fashion statement for those of an anti-Israel mindset.

The funny thing is: In Chile, the Palestinians are relatively rich, compared to other Chileans. This radicalization has occurred among the elite of Chilean society, and that is what makes it an interesting phenomenom. Another odd thing is that 99% of Palestinian-Chileans are Christian, not Muslim, making this even more fascinating to observe, especially since the Palestinians in the Mideast have often embraced Islamic tendencies.

This team is starting to make waves. Its politicization is starting to make the news. The team, and the Palestinian community in Chile, are having disproportional effects on the opinions of many South Americans.

This is not a good development.

Chile’s Palestino Club Is Sold To The Whole World


Published on YouTube: October 26, 2017

As well, as the Spanish World


Published on YouTube: October 26, 2017


Edited: October 28, 2017 – Had to remove one video, and reset two others. Apparently, the videos were pulled. I was able to find the English and Spanish Language videos, but not the Arabic language video. I had to re-assign YouTube dates to the new video sources.

More Palestinian Propaganda from Venezuela

Posted on YouTube: Aug 8, 2016

From Venezuela. La Radio del Sur (Radio of the South) with a propaganda broadcast about the launching of the Palestina Liberation (Palestine Liberation) newspaper.

La Radio del Sur is affiliated with the broadcasting wing of Venezuela’s TeleSur; a propaganda organ started by Hugo Chavez.

The USA should not be ignoring this.

PLO’s Ashrawi Meets Official Leftist Chilean Delegation

Source: Palestine News Network July 26, 2016

Ashrawi meets with an official Chilean delegation — of Leftists

PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi met with an official Chilean delegation of Members of Parliament, journalists and Palestinian leaders from the Chilean community yesterday in Ramallah. The delegation was accompanied by the Chilean Representative to the State of Palestine Francisco Javier Bernales Errázuriz.

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.
