    That and the fact that Brazil just signed an exterior Uranium enrichment contract with Iran to serve it's nuclear program.

      * Haiti. (Syrian Arabs, though the Haitians have seen little or nothing in aid from them...) ...
      This is probably 95% politics and economics - they probably have oil ties or something.

      Ordinary Arabs living in Brazil have little to do with political support for Iran. There are millions of Arabs and non-Arab Muslims living in the UK, US, PRC, Russia, France, etc

      Besides, Arabs are Sunni and Iranians are Shiites.

        Just from the top of my head-
        Most Iraqis are Shiites, the same goes for Lebanon, there's also a very large population of them in Syria, these are the "leaders" as far as I remember, but they of course exist wherever Islam exist, they represent about 15-20% of the Muslim faith.

          You are correct. I meant "most" Arabs (and those specifically from the Arabian peninsula/Saudi Arabia) - Iraq and a few others you have mentioned that have significant Arab & non-Arab populations are certainly the exception.

            Well yeah, that's because Shiites are only about 20% of the Muslims.

            Saudi Arabia is mostly Wahabi, while it's formally a sub-stream of the Sunna it doesn't automatically fall on the western's stigma of the Sunnis.
