Reader comment on item: More Converts to Terrorism

Submitted by David Borensztajn (Brazil), Dec 7, 2005 at 14:14

Meanwhile here in Brazil the muslim populations grows, and its influence can be noted especially in the south of the country, in Foz do Iguaçu where one can already see women wearing arab clothes and where there is a big mosque and a huge arab club.

To be noted is the fact that Foz do Iguaçu has borders with Argentina and Paraguay and the place is called the triple border. Authorities deny that the place has dangers or terrorist activities, but there are rumors that terrorist groups launder money through the muslims who live there, and that there might be some training camps somewhere there.

Not by chance the US sent some military personel to Paraguay a sometime ago, a fact that was criticized in Brazil
