Argentina’s Deal With Iran

Argentinian Foreign Minister Hector Timmerman is protecting those responsible for the mass murder of fellow Jews in his own country. Timmerman also attacked Israel for having the audacity to demand these Iranian jihadists be brought to justice. Timmerman defines kapo. There are certain pathetic, cowardly “Jews” who viciously turn against their own people in the hope that antisemites won’t target themselves. The Argentinian leadership joins the long list of morally repugnant governments throwing Jews under the bus to placate jihadist savages.
Candidly Speaking: Argentina’s pact with the devil By ISI LEIBLER 10/02/2013 That Argentinian leaders could be a part of a cynical whitewashing of the murder of their own citizens should lead to severe condemnation. Argentina’s President Cristina Kirchner has jettisoned whatever was left of her country’s moral standing by consummating a devil’s pact with Iran, whose leaders were responsible for having inflicted the worst-ever act of terrorism on her own citizens. In March 1992, the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires suffered a terrorist bombing which killed 29 and wounded 242 people. Two years later, in July 1994, a second bombing targeted the Jewish community center (AMIA) killing 85 and injuring hundreds. There were protracted investigations and eventually two Argentinian prosecutors, Alberto Nisman and Marcelo Burgos, formally accused the Iranian government of orchestrating the attacks. In 2007 the Argentinian government even issued arrest warrants for six Iranians accused of involvement, one of whom, Ahmad Vahidi, is currently the defense minister, and another of whom is former president Ali Rafsanjani. They were placed on Interpol’s “red” list of wanted criminals. None of them were apprehended and, not surprisingly, Iran adamantly refused to cooperate. Over time, evidence emerged exposing corruption and indicating that a cover-up had taken place. A judge was impeached for bribery and there were allegations that the Iranian intelligence service had deposited $10 million in a Swiss bank account held by former president Carlos Menem in return for his hushing up the affair. In March 2012, Menem was ordered to stand trial for obstruction of justice, but to date there has been no further progress. In 2005, president Nester Kirchner, the late husband of the current president, described Argentina’s failure to move forward in this matter as a “national disgrace.” But now, his widow and successor, President Cristina Kirchner, in a shocking reversal, has brought Argentinian political decadence to a climax by consummating a pact with the Iranians to create a joint “truth commission” in order to investigate the AMIA terrorist attack by the “judicial authorities of Argentina and Iran… and issue a report with recommendations about how the case should proceed.” Lest there be any doubt as to the outcome, the statement unashamedly stressed that the project would be “based on the laws and regulations of both countries.” Ironically, President Kirchner announced this diabolical pact with the murderers of Argentinian civilians, who were targeted as Jews, on January 27, International Holocaust Memorial Day.
