Abstract This article investigates how Islamism -not Islam- is penetrating into ideological extremism in Latin America. Its goal is to have an impact on a key aspect of security for Latin America that is often avoided. First, regional terrorist trends are shown. After that, links to extreme left are studied, next to the concepts of revolution, jihad and revolutionary and asymmetric war. Finally, conclusions of the article and suggestions for future research are shown.
