Arab Festival in Lima, Peru


Alright, that was from October of 2012; but I just found it, now.

NOTICE: on the lower right, it was sponsored by the Minstry of Foreign Affairs (Ministerio de Relaciónes Exteriores)

What is most interesting is the font used.  It is a faux-Hindu font, not a faux-Arab font.   Apparently, no one noticed that.

Peruvian Mission to the Muslims.

A Peruvian Evangelical Mission is giving instruction on how to outreach to Muslims.

Very interesting.

This why – inspite of our media scaremongering – I do not believe that Islam will get a hold in Latin America.

It may make some converts, but over time the Evangelicals will make more Christians out of Muslims than the Muslims will make Muslims out of Christians.

What is worrisome, however, is the increasing anti-Israel sentiment arising in Latin America. The Latins may not become Muslim, but they may become very hostile to Israel.

The reason for this is simple. The more traditional denominations in Latin America, the Catholic Church – and to a smaller extent, the Orthodox Church – have theologies where the Jews are written off for their rejection of Christ.

It is easier for anti-Semitism to prosper with those theologies, unlike Evangelical theologies where the Jews are still central to God’s design.

These traditional churches were magnificent in converting earlier generations of Muslim immigrants; but while they were effective at eradicating Islam, they made no effort to eradicate anti-Semitism. Hence, Arab and Iranian propaganda may not install Islam in South America; but it can instill an anti-Israel viewpoint that is vicious.

Muslims in Peru against Al-Qaeda

Not translated at this point, but you can make some of it out.

My Spanish is weak, but managing this site has forced me to learn some words.

You wouldn’t see this here in the USA

NOTICE: They have their babies in the dance – Posted on YouTube in Oct 2012

This is Peru. Peruvian women dancing with their babies to an Arab tune. This is how mainstream Arab music is in South America. Half of these women are part-Peruvian Indian.

The YouTube comments (Click Here) says:

Mamis bailando con sus bebes al ritmo de la danza árabe…por la Semana Internacional de la Crianza en Brazos..organizado por Nueve Lunas y Portabebes Mi Alma. Artista invitada Aleyah Bellydance bailarina y profesora de danzas arabes Dj Jonathan Diaz Manrique encargado de la mezcla de ritmos tradicionales y modernos

Mothers dancing with their babies to the rhythms of Arab dance … for the Interntional Weeek of Infant Rearing … organized by Nine Moons y My Soul Porta Babies.

Invited artists: Aleyah Bellydance artist and teacher of Arab dance.

DH Jonathan Diaz Manrique in charge of the mix of traditional and modern rhythms.

Now, you may consider this small change; but can you imagine any American corporation introducing a line of products with Arab dance?
