Looks like it may be!
After World War Two many of the most significant NAZI leaders (including Hitler himself according to some) fled to and settled in Argentina and Brazil. When I was in Argentina a few years back I was amazed by not only how many Germans were there but how openly they celebrated Hitler's birthday (I was there at the time and witnessed the celebrations myself), spoke of their continuing Nazi beliefs, etc. I was also warned not to venture into certain areas unless I was known by the locals to be pro-Nazi because there were known Nazi enclaves.
What has this got to do al Ikhwan, al Qaeda etc. and the recent al Qaeda arrest in San Palo? Maybe lots!
Consider this short video on the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Third Reich. Now that the far more dangerous Fourth Reich is almost established would we expect the Ummah to not be involved?

Segundo a "Folha", s� o governo dos Estados Unidos tem informa��es do ocorrido em S�o Paulo, mesmo porque o FBI e o grupo americano antiterrorismo t�m agentes no Brasil em a��o conjunta com a Pol�cia Federal.
O jornal destaca ainda que a escolha de S�o Paulo pela Al-Qaeda parece decorrer, ao menos em parte, da conjun��o de "neutralidade simp�tica" do governo brasileiro ante os pa�ses isl�micos e de inexistir, aqui, obsess�o (e motivos para t�-la) antiterrorista.
