São Paulo – An extremist group in Brazil expressed support for the terrorist group Islamic State 18 days before the start of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The channel “Ansar al-Khilafah #Brazil” on the Telegram messaging application has been revealed by a team of specialized monitoring terror activity SITE Intelligence Group.

According to the director of the institution, Rita Katz, this is the first type of group to form in South America. As the Olympics near, the expert warns of the growing size and engagement of such groups with the date of sporting event so close.

“A channel Telegram called Ansar al-Khilafah #Brazil posted a pledge of allegiance to the leader of ISIS Baghdadi,” the tweet team.

Katz adds: “Declaration of fidelity to IS is the first of a group in South America. Worrying: Western languages channels (English, Portuguese, Spanish, German, etc.) has shown dramatic increase in size and engagement.”

Here are the tweets.

Rita is responsible for the group that had reported in June about the recent formation of an information service of ISIS in Portuguese and also have access to the video of the death of journalist Steven Joel Sotloff by the group even before its disclosure.

THE SITE (acronym for “Search for International Terrorist Entities”) is a highly recognized group in the United States, hired to monitor jihadist activities by the US government and private companies, as a kind of risk consultancy.

In 2004 Katz was praised by the FBI for his contributions to research on terrorism and, in 2007, his group was credited with finding the first videos of Osama bin Laden after three years of silence.

  1. You know —
    So what?
    On any given day of the week there are devil-inspired malcontents who adopt a malicious posture against Western Civilization.
    That is not to say that reporting on such JUVENILE, Hateful, and anarchic SILLINESS is not worthy of broadcasting to an international audience.
    Sometimes such “movements” ‘move’ inexorably toward a Hitler. So to be able to frame current events in light of such potential calamities has its merits.
    No question about that.
    But let us not devolve into nervous Nellies.
    Globally: evil rises, falls, and relocates. The forces of Satan break out around the world, not all at once everywhere, but here and there in order to claim this world as their own: Uganda, Cambodia, 1949 China, Stalin 1930s, Germany 1940s, Nigeria today and yesterday. Satan never lets up. Never.
    The left — and many a right-wing DUPED Evangelical — whose pretext for moral superiority is that
    there is a better world THEY can make for us, are exactly those people who are responsible for inflicting their FAILED policies on the 20th Century VICTIMS — 100,000 million of them murdered — of their “noble efforts.”

  2. This may be the first such group formed in South America but I have heard a lot of reports that outfits like Hamas and Hezbollah are taking over the cocaine production and shipment in South America. So this may be hot air or it may be the real thing, only time will tell.
