I don’t know about AntiSemitism.
I don’t think Latinos are particularly opposed to Arabs or Jews.
I think many Latinos are distrustful of most non- Latinos, there is also a level of white idolization that goes on. Combined with a neo-colonial indigenous love-hate relationship.
There are many Arabs and Jews in all Latin countries, more Arabs in our countries than in the USA I imagine.
From what my Grandma has told me,most Arabs mixed in with the Bolivian population, and Jews did not marry into regular society.
I don’t know if there is more anti-jewish sentiment or more anti-arab sentiment. But there is anti-jewish sentiment among some people.
Mostly for economic reasons. At least what I’ve for economic reasons.
If you’re suggesting I’m an anti-semite, I’m not, I have no issue with any of the semitic peoples. Some of my extended family is Turco, they are from Syria and married into my family a generation or two ago. The surname is Farah.
Some of the distrust for Jews, probably comes from the reconquista.
The Christians pushed the Muslims out of Spain, an important part of Spanish history. The reconquista ended the same year, the Spanish started settling the new world. So this cultural happening isn’t far off, in American history either.
Anyways the Jews were brought to Spain with the other semitic people’s, the Moors and Arabs, and stayed after it was over.
They were not welcomed and seen as carpet bagging foriegner intruders, who profited from Muslim rule, many fled to the New World, after the inquisition through them out and maintained their reputation there.
