"Groups like Egypt's al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, and Al Qaeda are believed to draw some of their funding from activities in the Triple Frontier.[3] "

... Believed by whom? That's absolutely inaccurate... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:35, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

It is actually called the "Tri-Border Region" and in Spanish it is, "La Triple Frontera." Changed. AleGen CASTELLANO

As the article notes, the Argentinian locals (who are Spanish speaking) call it "Los Tres Fronteras" (and having been there, I can confirm this). How does the article conclude that the Spanish name is "La Triple Frontera"? Surely, whatever the locals call it in their own language is what it is called. (talk 18:15, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
In Argentina it is called Triple Frontera. "Los Tres Fronteras" is even gramatically incorrect. BTW, "Tres Fronteras" is the usual name of another tri-border, that of Brazil-Peru-Colombia. Both expressions mean literally "tri-border" in Spanish. Salut, --IANVS (talk | cont) 19:57, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Proposed Link[edit]

Hi, I'm working with The Pulitzer Center, a non-profit journalism agency geared towards providing audience to underrepresented news stories. I'd like to link this page to a video on the Pulitzer site; "Clouds Over Iguaçu," concerning Muslims in Brazil, Please let me know if I can post these links. Many thanks in advance.

Fall or falls, in Triple Frontier?[edit]

"... Iguazu Falls, largest waterfalls in the world, and... "
I get the gist of this, but in its current form it doesn't make sense. But what to edit it to? I guess the problem is the word "largest", and the ambiguity of "waterfalls". Has one single of the Iguazu Falls the longest fall of water? No, that's Angel Falls. Is it the/one of the largest waterfalls, in terms of volume of water going over a sudden break in elevation? Does 'waterfalls' mean a single waterfall or a system of waterfalls? --Shirt58 12:03, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

It should be widest, probably.. Mariano(t/c) 12:39, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

In spite of the fact that it is true of that the laws and his application in this part of the world there is no concrete evidence of which there are realized terrorist major activities. You prop not this clearly of if of this activity exists this one directly related to extremist Islamic groups. Nowadays they are continued doing investigations but the terrorist activity in the triple border continues being a rumor for the present time and one asks not to include expressly rumors not checked in the articles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:00, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
