Más de cien yihadistas latinoamericanos en el Daesh Media Mentions

La amenaza terrorista en Latinoamérica aumentó el último año, a pesar de que algunos procesos, como la paz que se negocia para Colombia, pudieran dar la impresión de lo contrario. En su radiografía anual sobre el terrorismo mundial, el Departamento de Estado norteamericano advierte que en Suramérica y el Caribe se han detectado algunos movimientos preocupantes: viajes de individuos a Siria para enrolarse en el Estados Islámico, también conocido como ISIS o Daesh, y creciente expansión de Hezbolá.

After Nisman: How the Death of a Prosecutor Revealed Iran’s Growing Influence in the Americas Policy Reports


SFS SPECIAL REPORT — After Nisman: How the death of a prosecutor revealed Iran’s growing influence in the Americas describes Iran’s Threat Network as a missing link to solving the death of Alberto Nisman, special prosecutor for the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish cultural center in Argentina, who mysteriously died a day before he was to testify before the Argentine congress about a criminal conspiracy to whitewash Iran’s involvement in the second largest Islamic terrorist attack in the Americas.

The special report is authored by SFS Executive Director Joseph M. Humire, who, after extensive field research in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Peru, argues a possible Iranian motive towards Nisman’s mysterious death. His argument is based on analysis of thousands of documents and numerous declassified intelligence reports related to the AMIA case, as well as a partial review of the close to 40,000 legally authorized wiretaps between Iranian and Argentine proxies made public in 2015.

Iran’s Infiltration of Latin America Media Mentions

Alberto Nisman was found dead in his apartment January 18th, 2015. Almost a year and a half later, the investigation of his death and the 1994 AMIA bombing are intertwined in complexity and still struggling to bring forth justice.

Joseph Humire was quoted in Mary O’Grady’s WSJ article saying, “Iran’s refusal to extradite its accused, according to Nisman, placed it in noncompliance with its international obligations to support a legal case of international terrorism with another U.N. member,” highlighting another complexity of the case.

In addition to the extradition refusal, Nisman had produced more than “1,500 pages of open source reporting on Iran and Hezbollah” that has yet to be declassified, further complicating the investigation and clouding the role Iran has had in the country. Humire states that the report should be declassified so the public can have the “knowledge necessary to grasp the seriousness and longevity of Iran’s influence in their country.” He continues, “At a time when U.S. influence has diminished in the region, Latin America is arguably Iran’s top foreign policy priority outside of the Middle East.”
