Ex-Argentine FM admits Obama's new BFF Iran blew up Jewish center.
Ex-Argentine FM admits Obama's new BFF Iran blew up Jewish center. (NCRI).
Argentine journalist Daniel Santoro on Friday revealed two recordings in which former Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman is heard admitting that Iran's regime “planted the bombs” that demolished the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires in 1994.
Timerman was speaking with the president of the local Jewish community Guillermo Burger in 2012, when negotiations with Iran's regime over its responsibility for the terrorist act had just begun.
Santoro said that during the conversation, revealed in Santoro’s new book 'Nisman Must Die', “Timerman pressured members of the AMIA not to release a statement at the start of negotiations with Iran.”
The negotiation was a very dramatic event, Santoro explained, because then President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was officially committed to a policy of “we don’t negotiate with terrorists.”
“And here’s Timerman, in a conversation, saying he is convinced that it was the Iranians who planted the bomb,” said Santoro, adding, “Imagine the irony—so he applied pressure on the Jewish community, in both recordings,” not to mention his words in public, suggesting it would render the talks with the Iranians ineffective. At one point on the tape, after Burger argued that Iran's regime is not a reliable partner in negotiations, Timerman explodes, “Who do you think we’re negotiating with, Switzerland?”
Argentina’s new Justice Minister Germán Garavano has already announced that he would not appeal a court decision to annul an agreement with Iran's regime which absolved Tehran of responsibility for the AMIA atrocity that killed 85 and left 330 wounded.
Garavano serves in the cabinet of the new president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri, who took office two weeks ago.
