Brazilian authorities , working with Israeli intelligence, foiled a plot by Hezbollah to orchestrate attacks on Jews in the South American country, officials said Wednesday. 

Brazil's Federal Police arrested two people suspected of being financed by the Lebanon-based and Iran-backed Hezbollah   terrorist group   to commit domestic attacks and to recruit Brazilian citizens, Reuters reported.

"The Federal Police is carrying out an investigation based on the hypothesis of a terrorist network that was trying to install itself in Brazil," Justice Minister Flavio Dino said at an event in Rio de Janeiro.

LIVE UPDATES: ISRAEL AT WAR WITH HAMAS  


The two suspects were taken into police custody in Sao Paulo, but have not been identified. One was apprehended at Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport after having just landed from Lebanon, the Times of Israel reported. 

The intended targets reportedly included synagogues. 

"We're following with apprehension and concern this Federal Police operation today. Brazil doesn't have a history of terrorism and we hope that the conflict in the Middle East isn't imported over to here," said Ricardo Berkiensztat, executive president of the Jewish Federation of the State of Sao Paulo.

ISRAEL KILLS TOP HAMAS WEAPONS DEVELOPER, IDF SAYS  


The office of Israeli Prime Minister   Benjamin Netanyahu   said Hezbollah and Iran "continue to operate around the world to carry out attacks against Israeli, Jewish and Western targets." 

"The Mossad (intelligence agency) operates and will continue to operate and thwart these attempts with a variety of methods wherever necessary," his office said. 

Since the   Oct. 7 attack   on Israeli communities by Hamas, Hezbollah has engaged Israeli forces near the Lebanon border as both sides continue to trade rocket fire. 


Hezbollah has long been suspected of targeting Jews abroad, including the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people. The group is also responsible for killing 241 U.S. service members, most of them Marines, in the 1983 bombing of a military barracks at the Beirut International Airport.

The major difference with terrorist groups is that they attack anywhere in the world through any country. No war is declared just vile attacks that target innocent people.

Some clueless and misguided people still insist on referring to Hamas and Hezbollah as freedom fighters. Terrorist groups indiscriminately attack civilian and military targets while freedom fighters only attack the military and actively seek to avoid targeting civilians. Hamas and Hezbollah are scum of the Earth terrorists plain and simple.

Hope Travis keeps his eyes wide open and his profile low while traveling with Taylor on her South American tour during the Chiefs bye week. We want him back safe and sound here in KC! 

A Swift concert would be a perfect target for asshole terrorists.

"Profile" means much more than just physical measurements when it comes to security. 

Going out dancing in night clubs = a NO! NO!

Doubt Taylor's security team is up to terrorists.

What I learned at Executive Security International is that the bodyguards always die first.

If it hadn't been for the diligence of the Mossad I doubt the Brazilians would even have gotten these guys or even tried

The reason I say I doubt the Brazilians would have caught these guys is because they were pro-Nazi during the war. I'm not sure those sentiments go away that easily

Their dictatorship favored the Axis at the start of WWII later they ended up siding with the allies.

Argentina was a different horse altogether they too favorited the Axis but later went to netural.

I do get your point though.

I'd forgotten about that movie. They tried to clone Hilter a hundred times or so to continue the Nazi party.

The main reason so many wanted Nazi's and war criminals settled there after the war. Argentina claimed neutrality but harbored said Nazi's and continued to harbor some of their like minded descendants to this day. Argentina to this day has consistently refused to extradite known Nazi war criminals to the US and other countries.

That is true, Doc. What I found interesting in Argentina was many people have a Spanish first name and a German surname.

There is a Mennonite community in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico about 251 miles from my home town of Douglas, AZ on the border. Some members occasionally make the four and a half mile drive to come up and shop at our Walmart. They definitely stand out with them all dressed in varying shade blue dresses and hats for the ladies and blue shirts and dark pants with suspenders, an straw hats for the men. Those Mennonites are all Mexican citizens but speak German amongst themselves and Spanish when dealing with store employees. They are a very isolated and well off community and their heavy duty pickup trucks are all brand spanking new.

Interesting information, Doc. Samoa has the same thing around 35% of Samoans have German surnames and it has nothing to do with WWII, more of pre WWI

That is probably because Western Samoa officially became a German colony in 1900. Samoa was also the last colony acquired by the German Reich.

I forgot to add that the Germany's "Ratlines" that provided safe passages for war criminals, by way of the Vatican, to South America were in fact a creation of Juan Peron, wartime vice president of Argentina.

I believe the The Yom Kippur War started on O ctober 6th 1973. The horrendous October Hamas terror attack this year year started at about the same time of year ( October 7 2023.).

Coincidence?

As previously mentioned, I am an Astrologer. (And I don't enter into arguments attempting to prove or disprove the validity of Astrology, so don't bother... jrSmiley_2_smiley_image.png ).

Busy with other things now, but when I get a chance I will research all the Astrological correspondences to check for similar Astrological influences between the two dates. Transits, eclipses, etc. (And it may turn out either way-- there might not be any similarities)

There are many failures of intelligence throughout world history. And sometimes the intelligence agencies involved just weren't very good in general-- but sometimes they were. (And since Israel and the U.S. share intelligence info re; the Middle East, this was also a failure of U.S. intelligence).

And IMO part of the blame goes to Netanyahu, but that's another story.

Here's another somewhat related story-- Mitt Romney has a lot of relatives in Mexico:

. . .  deep roots in Mexico, including his second cousin Leighton Romney, and about 40 other relatives descended from religious pioneers who first traveled to Mexico 125 years ago, according to  report airing tonight on NBC's "Rock Center with Brian Williams."  The Romneys of Mexico live in Colonia Juarez and Colonia Dublan, two remaining settlements just 175 miles south of the border. They said they support the candidate and are proud of their family history. Romney has never come to visit.

Descended from religious pioneers who first traveled to Mexico 125 years ago?

The religion is Mormonism ("LDS"?) I don't remember the details, but possibly Romney's relatives emigrated  to Mexico to avoid religious persecution in the U.S? (I'm too lazy to google it now)

America succeeded in replacing the Iran government with the Shah in the past.  Maybe it's time to do it again.  It would have the effect of cutting support from terrorist groups like Hezbollah and others (and Hamas if it still exists then).

There are a lot of Iranians on social media that want the Shah to return! Mostly for domestic reasons-- their current theocracy treats its own citizens horribly.And they've improsoned, even tortured women for not wearing headscarfs.

They have demonstrations, and hold up then older Iranian flag, the one with the more traditional lion on it.

Here's the flag of the current Theocratic regime:256
