THE PALESTINIANS

When dealing with Latin America, most of the Arab ethnicities in those countries are either of Lebanese Christian or Syrian Christian extraction. Yes, there are other ethnicities as well; but they tend to be smaller.

IN CHILE, THE PALESTINIANS ARE THE MAJORITY OF ARABS.

Not just Chile, but Honduras and El Salvador has a prominent Palestinian population as well.  However, since Chile is now a first world nation, and since Chile is an economic powerhouse in Latin America, it is Chile which we will pay attention to the most, in this series.

What one has to know is that Arabs are roughly 5% of Chile’s population;  but in Chile, the Palestinians are roughly 60% of the Arabs or 3% of Chile’s population.

They are rich, well-connected, powerful, and influential. They are also Christian, about 99% Christian, often Orthodox Christian.

THOUGH CHRISTIAN, PALESTINIAN CHILEANS SUPPORT THE STRUGGLE AGAINST ISRAEL.

I am not saying this in support of the Palestinians; but it is just a statement of fact. Palestinian lobbies in Chile are extraordinarily powerful, and they work against Israel.
