“Patagonia - a popular spot for Israelis”; This is the title of an article by Jerusalem post published in 2008. Paul Rockower, the writer of the piece, goes on to describe the life and hobbies of Israelis in Patagonia, a region share between Argentina and Chile. The article begins with this sentence:
"Have you been to 'Israeloche?" came the question from an Israeli backpacker.
The author is referring to the Argentinian city of Bariloche which, as he says, was used to being overrun by Israeli travelers. The tone of the article connotes the idea that Israelis feel at home in Patagonia. A step further can be also deduced from the article when Rockower writes:
So much so, it seems Hebrew is practically a second language in Patagonia.
Israelis not only feel at home, but also feel Patagonia their home.
Confidential Reports are indicative of an imminent travel to Argentina by the Israeli PM, Benjamin Netanyahu. Since 2015, when Mauricio Macri was Argentina a new version of Palestine, Israel has made its best to strengthen its influence on the political structure of Argentina. Nothing has been said of the purpose or the plan of the visit yet, but the scrutiny of the recent movements in the region shows that one of the main reasons behind this travel is Patagonia. The weird interest of Israelis to the region is not a commonplace issue, nor accidental. They are encouraged to travel and live in the region by authorities in Israel using the media like Jerusalem Post as referred to earlier.
Israel is using the same schema of invasion to make Argentina a new version of Palestine. Netanyahu’s political ties with the current Argentinian leaders should be viewed in the larger-scale of the new map made for Latin America. The long-term aims lie behind the plot for a new promised land to be created in “Israeloche”. The visit will take place on 17th of March as a new short-term movement towards reaching the long-term aim.
