Yoshie's point is very grounded in history. Yes, the evolution of Latin American and the Arab world have very different trajectories. And the legacy of those different trajectories remains even when imperialism subjects them to a similar rule, both economic and political.
But one need only remember the 1960s and 1970s to know that the birth or revival of radical groups and ideas on one continent can inspire those in others -- if anything the imitation can be too close, not taking into account regional differences! The Year of the Heroic Guerrilla included Fateh, after all.
I've been wondering for some time when the upsurge in Latin America would have some impact in Arab countries -- including in particular among the huge working class there.
Needless to say the missing link is a revolutionary International worthy of the name to make the connections.
