Yes, but in Brazil there was an additional subtlety: an Arab immigrant who
had justly arrived from the Middle East was a "Turk", as in the beginnings
of the XXth. Century they had documents issued by Ottoman authorities.An
Arab immigrant that had begun to fare reasonably good was a "Syrian", and an
Arab who had done excepcionally good was a "Lebanese". Of course such
details are being forgotten now, as Brazil has turned from an immigrant
country into an exporter of illegal aliens, but that's another history...
