The Arabic daily As Salam wrote Tuesday that the Argentine Arab community, which it claimed, numbers over two million, has contributed much to build this country and should not import overseas differences. Peace and work should replace hate and conflicts, the paper said. In an apparent reference to the Mideast peace momentum launched by the “impossible dialogue” between Egypt and Israel, As Salam said the Arabs must recognize that Israel exists, that Jews have their country and nobody can deny their right to it. But Jews must equally admit that they appropriated part of other peoples’ country and must return it, As Salam wrote. Palestinians also exist and have their rights. Accepting both realities will ease the way to peace and hatred will diminish, the paper said.
