Argentina’s Congress okays probe with Iran into 1994 Jewish center bombing

Local Jewish leaders say pact could undermine an ongoing judicial investigation in the attack, in which 85 people died; lawmaker from ruling party calls is a ‘bold, brave decision.’

ed note–the reason for all the screeching on the part of organized Jewish interests viz a viz Argentina and Iran investigating the bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994 is 2-fold–

1. Israel and her partisans don’t want ANY country ‘talking’ with Iran, because talking impedes BOMBING, which is exactly what the Jewish State demands, and

2. Israel is TERRIFIED that in the course of the investigation it is going to be exposed that it was actually Israel’s Mossad that carried out the bombing and NOT some shadowy ‘Iranian’ group.

Argentina’s Congress approved early on Thursday an agreement with Iran to investigate the 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center that Argentine courts have long accused Tehran of sponsoring.

Jewish leaders say the pact to set up a “truth commission” risks undermining the ongoing judicial investigation into the attack, which killed 85 people, but President Cristina Fernandez says it could shed new light on the case after years of deadlock.

The leftist president has close ties with other Latin American leaders who are on good terms with Tehran, such as Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, and her supporters hailed the memorandum of understanding as an historic opportunity.

“This memorandum represents a bold decision, a brave decision that opens a possible path toward the truth,” said ruling party lawmaker Mara Brawer during a heated 12-hour debate as Jewish community groups protested outside Congress.

Fernandez controls both houses of Congress, meaning final ratification of the accord was expected, but opposition lawmakers questioned the government’s motives, some saying commercial interests of oil and grain sales lay behind it.

The measure passed narrowly with 131 votes in favor and 113 against.

“This is the chronicle of a failure foretold,” said opposition lawmaker Eduardo Amadeo, an ex-ambassador to Washington, accusing the government of putting commerce before justice and criticizing Iran’s record on human rights.

“We’re going to sell out the victims for a barrel of oil,” he said.

Others cited Iran’s growing imports of farm goods from the South American nation, one of the world’s top grains suppliers, and said they feared the commission would undermine the evidence gathered by Argentine prosecutors so far.

“They’re asking us to … create a commission that will act like an audit of the Argentine judicial system,” said Ricardo Alfonsin of the centrist Radical party.

In a sign of how close the vote was, the ruling party took the unusual step of summoning two lawmakers on leave. They had to quit local government posts to be able to attend the session.

Center-left lawmaker Elisa Carrio said the deal would further damage the G20 country’s international reputation, which has been tarnished over the last year by messy legal wrangles with bondholders, trade disputes and criticism of its inflation data by the International Monetary Fund.

“Argentina is going to be much weaker in the eyes of the global community as a result of this accord,” she said.

The accord will establish a five-member commission made up of foreign legal experts and outlines plans for Argentine judicial officials to travel to Tehran to question those people for whom Interpol has issued arrest warrants.

Iran, which remains locked in a stand-off with world powers over its disputed nuclear program, denies links to the attack.

In 2007, Argentine authorities secured Interpol arrest warrants for five Iranians and a Lebanese over the attack in which an explosives-laden truck detonated outside the Argentine Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) building.

Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi is among the Iranian officials sought by Argentina, which is home to Latin America’s largest Jewish community.

Western and Israeli sources have voiced concerns that Argentina may have lost its interest in pursuing investigations of the 1994 attack, as well as the bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires that killed 29 people two years earlier.

The Islamic Jihad Organization, believed to be linked to Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, claimed responsibility for the 1992 bombing.

Argentine, Israeli and U.S. officials have long blamed the AMIA attack on Hezbollah guerrillas backed by Iran.

    Israel got caught attempting to bomb the Mexican Congress one month after 911, to blame 911 on Iran and get the U.S. to attack Iran. Any doubts? How about the official Mexican government release on this topic?

    I have no doubt AT ALL that Israel did the bombing in Argentina as well.

    I live in Argentina & can tell you that these jews are going crazy and now they are demanding that the agreement be tried by the Argentine Supreme Court. Hopefully the supreme court is not inundated with traitors. The jewish community has been acting guilty ever since this news broke. They are crying about the rights of the dead victims being ignored, but I think the victims are being ignored by NOT investigating this story. Of course Israel did this bombing & the Israeli embassy bombing. They are the only true terrorists in this world. Hopefully the next step will be to shut down the AMIA & deport ALL Israelis from this land and confiscate all their holdings! Fuerza Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner!

    It’s obvious the Jews conducted these bombings. The Mossad has their finger prints all over this operation. They have to maintain the “persecuted Jews” narrative, and keep up the appearance of endless war and conflict

    Whoever carried out these attacks, they happened nearly 20 years ago. The groups that supposedly claimed responsiblity for the attacks are not Iranian, but Lebanese (Hizbollah) and Palestinian (Islamic Jihad). Both groups were at war with Israel at the time and the Israelis had shown no inhibitions about attacking civilians and carrying out assassinations away from any battlefield, hence they have no reason to cry about these attacks.

    After 20 years, and a long list of further Israeli atrocities, isn’t it time to attribute these attacks to those who claimed responsibility and accept that they were a part of an ongoing conflict between the Israelis and the peoples whom they are and have been oppressing? This attempt to direct blame at the Iranians is an obvious attempt to further a current Israeli national goal (the destruction of Iran) by exploiting an act from a previous generation for which the Iranians could have no more than a “supporting” role if any.

    The Argentines are right to look for a way to put this to bed and repair their relations with Iran. The Argentines need trade with Iran, they need nothing from the Israelis. Of course the Israelis are an interest of Jewish power and their IMF, but then the Argentines have already been savaged by the IMF and the Jewish banksters and should have learned their lesson and avoid all future entanglements with them. Once you turn your back on these banksters offers of “easy credit” they no longer have power over you. Like a drug addict going straight, the Argentines should “Just say no” to Jewish power and get along with the business of rebuilding their economy. Argentina is much like the USA in that it is blessed with great natural resources. It should be a prosperous country and all of its economic woes can be attributed directly to the international banking cartels and their predations.

    F the Jews! I hope more Jewish targets are bombed all over the world. In every country, and especially those under Israel’s boot, like the west.
