In 1994 the Argentine Jewish Mutual Association (AMIA) center in Buenos Aires was targeted in a massive truck bomb blast, leaving more than 80 people killed and 200 others wounded. This bombing was carried out by the ruling ayatollahs in Iran with the support of the Lebanese Hezbollah. Afterwards Interpol began looking for the suspects of this terror attack, including Mullah Ali Falahian, the Iranian regime’s former minister of intelligence (MOIS/VEVAK), cultural affiliate Mohsen Rabbani, former diplomat Ahmad Reza Asghari, former Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) chief Mohsen Rezaie, then senior IRGC commander Ahmad Vahidi, and Emad Moqniya of the Lebanese Hezbollah. This bombing was a show of how the Iranian regime will use terror attacks to inflict fear.
The late Argentine public prosecutor Alberto Nisman came out saying he had obtained information not revealed ever before. He went on to issue subpoenas for 8 suspects of this terror attack, sending the list to Interpol. After an intense response from Iran the names of then Iranian president Hashemi Rafsanjan and foreign minister Ali Akbar Velayati were eliminated from the list.
The Guardian published an article on the mysterious death of Alberto Nisman, and went on to reveal a tip of the iceberg over the behind-the-curtain deals between Iran and Argentina regarding the Buenos Aires bombing, and how they cloaked the accusations raised against the regime.
The Judiciary Commission of the main Iranian opposition group National Council of Resistance of Iran issued a shocking report on February 14th, 2015 revealing the reasons and elements behind the AMIA bombing. This very important document has shed light on the bombing, the research and investigation conducted by Alberto Nisman, the role of the Iranian Resistance in unveiling this conspiracy, and the deal that led to the murder of Judge Nisman.
In an undiplomatic move the Argentine government at the time reached an agreement with Iran to suspend the AMIA portfolio, in return receiving $10 million from Tehran. Judge Nisman was scheduled to present his case to the Parliament on the role of the Iranian regime, and also the Argentine government, in covering up this entire dossier. However, he was murdered at his residence only hours before his hearing.
The Pope met with and expressed his condolences to the families of this terror attack. These family members asked the Pope to follow up on this terrorist crime.
U.S. Congressman Elliot Engel emphasized Iran’s role behind the Buenos Aires bombings and its destructive measures in Latin America.
U.S. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Iran is opening consulates in South American countries, which are used as bases for espionage and other secret activities.
A member of the Uruguay Senate said there is no doubt Iran murdered Nisman.
The international community is faced with Iran’s support for terrorism, seeing how Tehran will resort to any measures to seek its goals. Nisman lost his life for justice, yet his name will never be forgotten. This in itself will reveal the face of a terrorist regime for the entire globe. For years freedom loving Iranians have been calling for Tehran to be held accountable in international courts for its terrorist crimes abroad, and executing thousands of innocent people inside the country.
