Dr Pipes

BTW: I'm sure you must be aware that there are not only Lebanese Muslims in Venezuela but also all over South America. It has been a puzzle to me why there are so many Lebanese Muslims (I stand corrected here but most of them are Shi'a) in Iguazu Falls which is located in the middle of no where at the junctions of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay

Notice that most Lebanese in Brazil are Christians except in Iguazu Falls where the majority are Muslims

Are they after smuggling?
