February 1, 2012 SouthAmerica: It is time for Brazil to take side on this new crisis regarding Syria. Brazil should back up Russia and China in an effort to stop the UN from using its rogue army (NATO) from destroying the entire infrastructure of Syria as they have done in Libya. Brazil has a dog in this fight, since over 10 million people who live in Brazil are descendents from Syrian/Lebanese people. There's a strong human connection between Brazil and Syria. ***** US and Russia clash in UN Security Council over Syria â January 31, 2012 <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bSuypCIfcDE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> ***** SouthAmerica: Quoting from my article published at Brazzil magazine: âUS and EU Are the Past. The Future is Brazil and BRICâ - May 9, 2005 http://brazilandsyria-lebanonconnection.blogspot.com/2012/02/brazil-and-syrialebanon-connection.html â...The Summit has many objectives. The most important is a reciprocal re-discovery of two regions with historical affinities and a vast but yet unfulfilled potential in the field of bilateral relations. Looking to the past, the contact points between the two worlds date back to the Arab presence in the Iberian Peninsula. Human ties between both regions have grown more intense over the past century through migration flows toward South America, which have made a valuable contribution to the social and cultural development of an important number of countries in the region. Today there are over 10 million people of Arab descent who live only in Brazil, not to mention the many South American migrants, particularly Brazilians, that have recently gone the opposite way in search of a new life in the Middle East. Looking to the future, what we aim at is a partnership between two regions that face similar challenges in the struggle for development. The obvious diversity of their national situations, identities and levels of development does not prevent them from sharing common goals and interests. Countries from both regions share a common vision of peace and economic development with social justice, they base their actions on the respect for international law and multilateralism, they fight for an inclusive, tolerant, multipolar world more conducive to development.â .
