The ISIS-Hezbollah rivalry in Latin America

The Sunni Shi’ite conflict has come to Latin America. Sunni Islamic State (ISIS) is following in the footsteps of the long-entrenched Shi’ite Hezbollah.

Venezuela under Hugo Chavez was an Iranian playground, giving free rein to its Hezbollah acolyte to arm, train and convert. During the 2006 war with Israel, the entire Wayuu indigenous tribe converted to Islam, adopting the Hezbollah name and consecrating the act by a failed attempt to bomb the US Embassy in Caracas.

Now Dabiq, ISIS’s website, has announced its mission to convert the native Mayas in Chiapas, Mexico and across the border in Guatemala.

    No doubt they’ve got their eye on converting all the Idle No More parasites to Islam too.

    • I would not be surprised, Islamists are active in “Aboriginal rights” & BlackLivesMatter

        Kinda like how so many dead aboriginals were aspiring rappers.

      Considering North American aboriginal people’s unfortunate predilection for alcoholism, it’ll be an uphill battle.

    Obama and his supporters aren’t worried about Latin America or Islam.

    Only xenophobic, islamophobic, racists who want to fight a holy war consider ISIS an existential threat. /sarc

    Hopefully there are still some natives in South and Central America that take their Catholicism (or paganism) seriously enough to tell ISIS recruiters to go f*** themselves.

    Just another cartel war?
