Operatives from Hamas, Hezbollah, and al Qaida are in Brazil planning attacks, raising money and recruiting followers, a leading Brazilian news magazine reported on Saturday.

The report renews prior concerns about the nation serving as a hide-out for Islamic militants.

Veja magazine, in its online edition, reported that at least 20 people affiliated with al Qaida as well as the Lebanese Shi’ite Muslim group Hezbollah, the Palestinian group Hamas and two other organizations have been hiding out in the South American country.

The magazine said these operatives have been raising money and working to incite attacks abroad. The magazine cited Brazilian police and U.S. government reports, but did not give details on specific targets or operations.

The United States has said Islamic militants have been operating in the border region between Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. Brazil has denied this, while saying it is aware that some members of Brazil’s Lebanese community legally transferred funds to the Middle East.

There has been a warming of relations between Brazil and the United States since President Dilma Rousseff took office in January. She has sought closer U.S. ties after her predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, angered the United States with attempts to mediate over Iran’s nuclear program.

Veja reported that a Lebanese man named Khaled Hussein Ali, who has lived in Brazil since 1998, is an important member of al Qaida’s propaganda operation and has coordinated extremists in 17 countries.

He was briefly arrested in Brazil in March 2009 after a police investigation that found videos and texts directed at al Qaida followers. One email found on his computer and sent as spam to email addresses in the United States incites hatred against Jews and blacks, Veja said.

He spent 21 days in prison on charges of racism, inciting crime and gang formation, but was set free because prosecutors did not pursue the charges in court, Veja said.

    Now the context of Obamas visit to Brazil comes into clearer focus. Oil has successfully funded Islamic dawa for decades — hence the connection between Hamas, Hezbollah, and al Qaida in Brazil. Same with African oil supplies and the janjaweed’s ethnic cleansing and brutal rape of black African muslims – to inject “Arab” Muslim ownership of the earth’s supply of black gold.

    My earlier comment had me searching out the wisdom of one Hugh Fitzgerald, one time VP of JihadWatch.org.. He frequently wrote of the greatest transfer of wealth . . .here is just one pointed example:
    Quoting a haunting portion of a comment he wrote May 2 2007:
    “And finally there is the clear economic division between Haves and Have-Nots. The oil-rich Arabs lead lives of such luxury and languor, the result of an accident of geology, not of any industry or enterprise on their part, and this is in contrast to the impoverished state of those Arabs and other Muslims who do not possess that oil bonanza, and who, being Muslims, are incapable of the kind of enterprise and energy that the developmentr of modern econmies require. For inshallah-fatalism inhibits economic activity. Look at any country where there are significant numbers of bothMuslims and non-Muslims: look at Malaysia, and which group is responsible for economic development in that country, or at Indonesia, or at Lebanon, or at Nigeria. Look at the massive exploitation of the welfare states of western Europe, not by “immigrants” in general (not the Chinese, not the Vientamese, not the Hindus) but by one specific group: Muslims, and not in this or that country alone, but in every Infidel land of Western Europe, no matter what its history or current political setup, or benefits offered. Despite the fact that the oil-rich Arabs and Muslims have been the beneficiaries of the greatest transfer of wealth in human history, far far outreaching anything received by all the colonial powers through all the years of colonialism, amounting since 1973 to ten trillion dollars, it is not they, but we the Infidels, who have somehow become responsible, or who have allowed ourselves, in a moment of distraction or semi-dementia, to think that we somehjow should be responsible. For supply money and goods and services of all kinds to the non-oil-endowed Arab and Muslim states, and the conditions of such foreign aid, the way in which those receiving it take it as by right, and show not gratitude but continued undisguised hostility to those giving them that aid, and the way in which the givers of such aid do so with such alacrity, such an eagerness to please, and with such fear of cutting or diminishing such aid lest the beneficiare are angered, and begin to behave in a manner still more hostile to the donors who have been trying, tugging at their metaphorical forelocks, to comply in every why with what those recipients of aid demand. For the implication is always, as the Infidels fearfully see it, that if they don’t then those Muslim recipients will do them harm, or even more harm than they now do them. Yes, those Infidels convince themselves, we’d better not stop that aid to those inculcated to hate us by their own sacred texts, and one can almost hear, in the background, the aposiopetic threat of Neptune in the Aeneid, Book IV, when the God of the Sea shakes his triton and offers a dire warning, the “Quos Ego…” so carefully attended to in many a third-year Latin class. What we should be doing is not only cutting all aid to members of the Camp of Islam (and spending that money on efforts to alert the peoples of the West to the theory and practice of Islam), but publicly embarrassing the Arabs and Muslims, by pointedly making clear that the poor members of the Umma should be seeking whatever aid they need from the rich members of the Umma, given that the Umma al-Islamiyya is the only community, for Muslims, that counts, and where all that blague and blah about “social justice” should be duly noted, and the loyalty of rich Muslims to poor ones – yes, why isn’t Saudi Arabia, why aren’t the Emirates, why isn’t Kuwait, really sharing the wealth with the rest of the “Arab Nation” or the “Umma al-Islamiyya” – should be put to the public test.”

    It’s only a matter of time when the Leftists in Latin American countries that are welcoming members of ‘The Religion Of Peace’ will live to regret their poor judgment , which is driven by a vitriolic hatred for the USA.

    This should be presented to Muslim “Dawah” preachers (AKA those who want to shove Islam down everyone’s throats) as proof that Islam and Muslims are NOT tolerant of all races, colors and types of people. They are not even tolerant of themselves, so to say they respect other types of people and want peace with them is ludicrous.

    Interestingly i read a quote from an Arab Imam stating muslims immigrating to the U.S. should focus first on blacks to convert them to Islam.He further stated since American blacks were disenfranchised by the government,easily manipulated,uneducated and ignorant they would be easy to convert and radicalize.
    He mentioned prisons and ghettos were to be the first to be targeted and to use the welfare system for financial needs.
