The Rise of Islamist Extremism in Latin America

Latin America has long been home to a deeply rooted large and diverse Muslim population, and in recent years has had a steady stream of migration from the Middle East and South Asia, especially to free-trade zones like Colon, Panama.

According to authorities, Islam in Latin America is one of the fastest growing religions. By the late 1980s, the activities of fundamentalist Muslims and known Islamist terrorist organizations, especially Hezbollah, were beginning to be documented in the region by US intelligence agencies, according to numerous classified materials that provided to Homeland Security Today.

These materials show that Middle East terrorist organizations began to set up shop in Central and Latin America around 1988.
