A Brazilian extremist group has become the first orgainsation in South America to pledge allegiance to ISIS, sparking further fears for a terror attack at the Rio Olympics.

The pledge was spotted by SITE Intelligence, a jihadi monitoring group, on ISIS’s messaging app of choice – Telegram.

In the Telgram channel titled Ansar al-Khilafah #Brazil, the Brazilian jihadis announced their dedication to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

It comes less than three weeks before the 2016 Olympic Games are set to begin in Rio de Janeiro on August 5.

Meanwhile, France was last week informed of a planned terror attack on its team at the Games, according to the head of military intelligence.

    It would take a fool to go to Brazil for the Olympics, a place that is bankrupt, and has the one of the highest crime rates in the world, and now this muslim BS that came in and offered money to help out, and not realizing they’ve just signed a deal with the devil, but they will know soon!!
