We Are All Palestinians – Chile

The Arabs of Chile
We are all Palestine
The Arab Youth of Chile – 12th meeting
(From early 2013)

This week long encounter took place in Concepción, Chile, with more than 100 youth.

Estadio Árabe (Arab Stadium) is a Sports complex in Concepción, which is the second largest metro area in Chile after the Santiago-Valparaiso area.

Sadly, Israel and the West have failed to do their proper groundwork in Chile. Radical elements have inserted themselves in Chile’s elite Palestinian community; a community that is about 99% Christian.

Most of these Chilean Palestinians have Christian ancestors, many of whom fled Turkish Islamic tyranny long before 1948.   Most Chilean Arabs have ancestors who arrived before 1930.

61% of the Arabs arrived in our country did between 1900 and 1930. Over 60% of Arabs who came were between 10 and 30 years old.

They have been sold a distortion of history.

The West should do something to correct this.  This Palestinians in Chile are elite and can swing a lot of influence.
