anti-Semitic attack anti-Semitism Argentina



Jew hatred on steroids.

Iran was behind the earlier atrocities, is safe to assume that they’re behind this one as well, but in the case that they aren’t, in this present day environment of continued jihad, every Islamic faction in existence is a potential suspect and threat.

The news will increase fears that Jewish institutions in Argentina are soft targets for attack by Iranian-backed terrorist groups. Buenos Aires was the site of two major attacks on Jewish sites in the 1990s. A 1992 attack on the Israeli Embassy killed 29. The 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center – the single worst anti-Semitic atrocity since the Holocaust – left 85 dead.

Police in the Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires, have arrested a 57 year-old man suspected of planning an attack on the Sociedad Hebraica, a local Jewish community center.

JTA reported that Argentina’s national security secretary, Sergio Berni, said that police received an alert a week ago from Interpol of a possible plot to attack the center. The suspect was arrested Tuesday at an Internet cafe in Buenos Aires by the Anti-Terrorist Division of the Federal Police.

Berni declined to provide additional details other than to say that 1,500 security personnel had been deployed to 99 sites in the last week, which coincided with the Jewish High Holidays season. After a bomb threat posted on Facebook last week, theSociedad Hebraica was evacuated last Thursday night (October 2) and was closed the following day (on the eve of Yom Kippur)  for security reasons.

“We are very satisfied by the actions of the police and the Justice Ministry in this case,” Julio Schlosser, the president of Argentina’s Jewish political umbrella group, DAIA, told local media.
