• Killed hours before releasing bombshell on 1994 terror attack.
By Dave Gahary —
The obvious assassination of an Argentinian prosecutor bent on proving the Islamic Republic of Iran’s responsibility in the 1994 bombing on the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) building in Buenos Aires was clearly the work of Israel’s national intelligence agency, Mossad. Over the past two decades it has been shown that the attack, the deadliest bombing ever in Argentina, was the work of the Zionists, who were embroiled in a bitter political fight in Israel after the olive branch of peace was offered to the Palestinians by Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin.
The bombing of the Jewish Community Center, which killed 85 Jews and injured several hundred others, was the supposed work of a suicide bomber, and was immediately blamed on Iranian terrorists, although the alleged vehicle was never found and no evidence of Iran’s involvement was ever found. Significantly, Iran has a very large Jewish population who are not subjected to any discrimination due to their faith. Israel, however, has a long history of murdering anyone they see fit, including Jews and Americans, in false flag terrorist attacks for political causes, the most notable being the 1954 Lavon Affair—a failed series of bombings carried out by Egyptian Jews recruited by Israeli intelligence and designed to be blamed on Egyptian Muslims.
The prosecutor, 51-year-old Natalio Alberto Nisman, was a Zionist Jew and the chief investigator of the 1994 bombing. On January 19, Nisman was found dead at his home in Buenos Aires the day before he was set to present evidence of his inquiry of the bombing to Argentina’s congress. He was found by his mother in a pool of blood next to a .22 caliber handgun dead from a single shot to his head. The gun belonged to his assistant who had lent it to him. Paraffin tests showed no gunshot residue on Nisman’s hands and there were no signs of a struggle. Nisman knew he had information that would create a stir, telling a reporter on January 14 that “I could be dead by the end of this.”
Historians have shown that only hardline elements in Israel profited from the AMIA bombing. On July 1, 1994, Prime Minister Rabin allowed Yasser Arafat to return to Palestine from exile. Just two weeks later, the AMIA building was bombed. A few months later Rabin was assassinated in Israel by Yigal Amir—a radical right-wing Jew—punishment for Rabin’s dovish Labour Party policies. Amir was a member of the fanatical settlers’ movement, connected to Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security department, which Rabin was trying to rein in.
Those knowledgeable with the 1994 bombing suspect that Nisman may have uncovered evidence of Israeli involvement in the operation, which would need to be suppressed.
Ralph Schoenman, author of The Hidden History of Zionism, points to the 2013 “memorandum of understanding” Argentina signed with Iran, establishing a “truth commission” to investigate the AMIA bombing.
The fact that Argentina demanded a new investigation involving Iran as a co-investigator with the Argentinean authorities themselves “makes clear that within Argentina the realization has become quite substantial that this event has vanishingly little to do with Iran and everything to do with an intrigue that requires looking elsewhere,” said Schoenman.
“The apprehension of the Israeli authorities is well founded,” said Schoenman, “because that’s where the finger will be pointed when the evidence is in.”
With around 250,000 in the country, about .5% of the population, Argentina has the largest Jewish population in Latin America.
