Israel angrily summons Argentina envoy over ‘truth commission’ with Iran

Jerusalem protests Tehran’s involvement in ‘truth commission’ to investigate 1994 bombing of Jewish center, says Argentina sending ‘message of weakness.’


The Foreign Ministry Tuesday summoned the Argentine ambassador to protest his country’s agreement with Iran to investigate the 1994 terror attack on the Buenos Aires Jewish center that killed 85 people, and said that Argentina was sending “a message of weakness” in its dealings with Iran on the issue.

The ministry’s deputy director-general for Latin America, Itzhak Shoham, conveyed Israel’s astonishment at Argentina’s decision to collaborate with Iran after Tehran’s responsibility for the bombing had been cited by the Argentine authorities.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Shoham protested what he called the Argentine government’s unacceptable attitude toward Israel since Buenos Aires began talks with Tehran.

Shoham said the 1994 attack on the AMIA Jewish center resembled the one that destroyed Israel’s embassy in Buenos Aires two years earlier; in that attack, 29 people were killed and 250 wounded.

Although Argentine investigators have mentioned the great resemblance between the attacks and the involvement of Iran and Hezbollah in both, Argentina has not responded to Israel’s requests to be informed of the diplomacy with Iran, Shoham said. He said Israel has not been told of the way Argentina envisaged bringing the perpetrators to justice.

“A lack of resolve in dealing with terrorism sends a message of weakness,” Shoham said. “Had Argentina dealt resolutely with the 1992 attack on the Israeli Embassy, the 1994 AMIA bombing might not have happened.”

Earlier this week, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said her country had agreed with Iran to jointly investigate the attack on the AMIA center. The foreign ministers of the two countries, Hector Timerman and Ali Akbar Salehi, signed a memorandum to establish a “truth commission” to probe the attack.

The commission will include international jurists to be selected by the two countries; none will be citizens of Argentina or Iran. A commission member will be permitted to meet with anyone mentioned in the investigation over the years, in Argentina or Iran, and question them freely.

The parties also agreed for the memorandum to be sent to Interpol’s chief, who has been involved in the search for the suspects.

In the attack on the AMIA building, in which 85 were killed and more than 300 wounded, mostly Jews, a man of Lebanese origin is suspected of detonating a car bomb near the building. In 2006, after more than a decade of suspected cover-ups, Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman announced that Iran and Hezbollah had been behind the attack.

    Sounds like israel fears a fair and open investigation into what happened. Could they be afraid of it being exposed as another false flag operation?

    Jewish chutzpah on display yet again. No obective person could object to the terms of the proposed “truth commission”. The panelists will be neither Argentine or Iranian, but respected international jurists. The Israelis don’t really have a legitimate beef here. The Argentine ambassador should tell the Israelis to pound sand.

    If the Israelis threaten any kind of diplomatic action, the Argentines should beat them to the punch by expelling the Israeli diplomatic mission in Argentina and withdrawing thier own ambassador from Tel Aviv. Then let the Israelis stew on that one for awhile. The Argentinian population would likely enthusiastically support such a strong stand given the devastation wrought on their country by Jewish power. Argentina would do well to seek stronger trade relations with nations like Iran and China and simply say no to the IMF and the international Jewish banking cartels.

    The Jews have nothing to offer Argentina other than poisonous usury and threats. The Iranians on the other hand can offer discounted oil in exchange for Argentine agricultural products. At this point Argentinians should have no illussions about the nature of their relationship with the US and these international bankers. A famous person (I don’t recall now, but I think it might have been Bismark) one stated that “nations do not have friends, they have only intererests”. Argentina should follow her own interests, and so should everyone else.

    Since reading the many Articles from Argentinian historian and Economist Adrian Salbuchi; it was in one of his exposes’ on the False Flag Operation at the AMIA where I learned of this event just a few years ago. The Zionist ‘State’ and it’s Intel Agency , the Mossad sure does a lot of damage to peaceful Nations around the world. They have no compunctions at all in their pursuit of world domination even when they ‘sacrifice’ their own. What a despicable lot. And now they wish to ‘call on the carpet, the Argentine Envoy for working with their ‘dreaded enemy’ Iran to investigate it?? Like Bob, I feel Argentina should pull no punches and denounce ‘israel for having the unmitigated gall in so doing. Enough is enough. The world has had it with them. Another thing many readers here should also know; is the machinations israel has had on Patagonia, situated in southern Argentina. They have had designs on it since 1897 when at the World Zionist Congress Theodore Herzl proposed this region as an alternative to Palestine. Zionists have always used contingencies in their schemes. Since the bastard ‘State’ has fully exposed itself as a worthless, ruthless, amoral parasitic entity it wishes to ‘relocate’ and further do untold damage to the planet as it metasticises all over it. This MUST be stopped.

    Both terrorist atacks have the same imprint of several others in Africa and even the Murray building.In the last mentioned even the same couple of jewish-american specialists” have produced reports with suspicious bias.

    Many argentineans like myself believe in the false flag theory.The reasons were ,apparently,internal Israel’s contradictions dealing with the extremely radical fraction that was fighting for political control ( religious fundamentalist) against more progressive,left leaning sectors that were fully represented in AMIA at that time.

    Israel is and I think, always was,, a demented theocracy.,with a long period of undercovered discourse.

    Yes,many thinking argentineans are fed up with “their” jews.Read about the criminal cabal and Mr.Elstein-Banco Hipotecario affair.

    They helped destroy argentinean economy,morals,Catholic Church,etc.

    While as many as 1500+ jews died during the “dirty war” against the military in the 70’s-80’s,Israel secretly was selling weapons and military training the ” fascist” army .Same thing during the same anti-communist process in Brazil.

    one would have to think that the Argintinians have a ‘weak link’ or someone who’s got some serious inside info ~ i would expect a bomb in the middle of this.

    From globalresearch: ~Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner publicly attacked the head of Buenos Aires’ Jewish community, hinting he was in contact with a “foreign espionage agency that knows of a new terror attack planned against Argentina.”

    Guillermo Borger, president of the AMIA Buenos Aires Jewish center, said the Argentina-Iran agreement to set up a committee to investigate the 1994 bombing of the center “will allow a third bombing in Argentina.” In 1992 the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires was bombed.

    “This pact is viewed by some people as a step forward. This may be a step to the precipice. It will allow a very unfortunate third attack,” warned Borger.

    The confrontation between Borger and Fernandez came to a head on Saturday as the president took to the national television airwaves and Twitter to defend the agreement.

    “I read with concern the statements made by Guillermo Borger, president of AMIA,on the deal with Iran. What do you know to make a statement so terrible?” Fernandez asked on Twitter. “If there was an attack planned related to the agreement with Iran, who is the mastermind and the material author?”

    Fernandez’s remarks seemed to accuse Borger of being in contact with foreign espionage bodies who are supplying him with information, a member of the Buenos Aires Jewish community told Haaretz on Sunday.~~

    What this means is that the Jews are in a panic that the investigation will prove that Israel did the 1994 bombing, and are willing to risk inevitable questions being asked about the meaning of hints of a third bombing to try and prevent a joint Argentinian/Iranian investigation.

    Just think, before the truly heaven sent Net, only the Argentine and Israeli press would have reported this. Certainly not the BBC or the NYT. Now, that of the whole world literate in Spanish and in English can know, and have sombre private thoughts.

    They have no shame or pride at how they look to normal human beings.

    regarding Argentina / South America zionist links, you should have Adrian Salbuchi as a guest on your show.. he has a great knowledge on the subject.

    Whaa whaa whaa that’s all your ever going to get from these Jewish creatures.

    “will allow a third bombing in Argentina.”

    it really doesn’t get much more blatant than this. In what possible way could having independent jurists investigate this case cause, or facilitate, another bombing in Argentina? Would an agreement with the Iranians cause them to want to attack Argentina? Would it cause Hezbolah or Islamic Jihad to want to attack there? Who exactly would see this independent investigation as a reason to carry out such an attack? Hmmmmmmm…

    I would be looking for some kind of assassination of Kirchner or perhaps a coup of some type to remove her government from power in the near future. Perhaps another “color revolution”? I wouldn’t rate the prospects of a color revolution in Argentina very high. Few nations have been more ravaged by Jewish banksters than Argentina. A nation that was once considered on a par with any first world nation and is now a complete wreck. Its once great middle class has been utterly wiped out. Hunger is rampant in a nation that is one of the worlds great grain producers. Poverty now affects most of the population. The rich have gotten richer and everyone else has gotten poorer.

    If you want to see where usury leads, just look at Argentina.
