A Jewish sports club in Argentina was the victim of a threat that included the Islamic State logo.
A threatening note with the logo was attached to a plastic bottle filled with cement that was thrown through a window of the Maccabi Jewish Community Center and sports club in Santa Fe City, the capital of the Santa Fe province.
The note read “This is a warning, the next one will explode” and “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great” in Arabic.
“This is the first time the ISIS flag has been used in an attack in Argentina,” Ariel Gelblum, a representative of the Wiesenthal Center in Latin America. “The influence of ISIS is growing in Latin America and this could be a consequence of the spread of ISIS hate messages.”
