Islamic Radicalism in Latin America. From Hezbollah to Daesh.- Alexandra Dumitrascu

The Muslim population in Latin America constitutes a community that in case of Brazil or Argentina reaches or overcomes a million people. In spite of the great resonance that the terrorism has in Middle East, Africa and, even in Europe, in Latin America has been rejected the possible scope of the Islamic terrorism. The Latin American governments, though conscious, they have turned the back to the phenomenon, considering it to be a foreign matter. The present article tries to reveal that the terrorist stagnation in the region has not meant, nevertheless, the absence of the Islamic radicalism. However, the regional conditions have been an advantage to seat a financing infrastructure of Hizballah in Latin America, which has been nourished by diverse activities of organized crime. On the other hand, it will be a question of demonstrating the increasing threat of the Islamic State in Latin America, as an attempt to reflect the evolution of the Islamic radicalism in the region.
