Friday’s indictment of several Miami businessmen and their various companies for supporting a designated terrorist organization in Paraguay, motivated us to finally post all the bookmarks we’ve been keeping on the infiltration by Islamic terror groups and Islamists throughout Latin America, as well as in the Spanish-speaking communities in the U.S. If you have time, read through them, investigate the issues, and pay attention to this quietly growing threat. If you’ve blogged on this topic – send a link and we’ll add it. Video links below the fold.

350,000 ‘Palestinian’s’ in Peru; controlling commerce in Honduras?
Today the Palestinians are among the country’s wealthiest and most powerful industrialists. “We have won acceptance, and we have equaled the Hondurans in many ways,” Canahuati said.
While hard data is lacking, at least 600,000 Palestinians are estimated to live around the region. Besides Chile, 100,000 live in the United States. Other sizable Palestinian communities can be found in Honduras, Colombia and Brazil.
In San Pedro Sula, Honduras’ largest city on the north coast, U.S. anthropologist Nancie L. Gonzalez estimates 25 percent of the population has some connection to Palestine. Their assimilation has been so successful, “They have come to dominate the commercial and industrial, if not the the social, elite,” she wrote in a 1992 book.
