On Sunday, May 18, family members of the bombing victims of the Argentina-AMIA Jewish Center building which happened 27 years ago, a terror attack which was decided at a meeting of the Iranian regime’s Supreme National Security Council, commemorated their loved ones and demanded that the case be pursued.
On July 18, 1994, a car bomb with a powerful explosive turned the Jewish charity building in Buenos Aires into a pile of debris. The blast killed 85 innocent people and more than 300 were wounded. The operation was designed such that no one could easily find the perpetrators.
Survivors of the harrowing terror act said they were “outraged” that as the years passed, Argentina’s judiciary has yet to put anyone behind bars.
A ceremony to commemorate the victims of the AMIA building explosion was held virtually this year under the slogan “27 years without justice, but full of memories.”
Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez also tweeted a tribute to the families of the victims, saying, ” In memory of every one of (the victims) and in honor of those that lost their loved ones, we must unite against impunity.”
The terrorist blast, which targeted the Jewish central building in Buenos Aires, remains the most dramatic and bloody terrorist incident in Argentina’s history.
It should be noted that a lengthy investigation by Argentina’s investigators, judiciary, and police about the terrorist blast was quickly tied up with financial corruption and complex jobbery, and even moved away from its original targets, which is finding the wrongdoers so that there are not spared from the right punishment.
Three weeks after this terrorist adventure, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) made a major revelation, capturing the attention of news agencies.
According to information leaked by the Iranian Resistance, the decision to carry out the bombing was made at a meeting of the Iranian regime’s Supreme National Security Council, headed by Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, on Saturday, August 14, 1993, in the presence of military advisers and fixed members, and after final approval by the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader ordered that Brig. General Ahmad Vahidi, then commander of the IRGC-Quds Force, should carry out this terror.
In a meeting of the Quds Force’s Command Council, Vahidi assigned the implementation of this mission to the regime’s terrorist diplomats, Ahmad Reza’eh Asghari, and Mohsen Rabbani, as well as Imad Fayez Mughniyeh, an element of the Hezbollah.
Morteza Reza’i (IRGC Intelligence Protection), Tehrani (Commander of the Quds Force Support), and Ahmad Salek (Khamenei’s representative in the Quds Force) also attended this meeting.
How were the bloody hands of Iran’s clerical regime covered up in the AMIA explosion?
The Iranian regime paid $10 million in bribes to the then President of Argentina Carlos Saúl Menem to cover up the regime’s bloody hands.
The Washington Post unveiled the dirty deal in January 2007. Carlos Menem lost credibility. Juan Jose Galeano, the investigating judge in the case, was also arrested for derailing the judicial process.
After the incident, Alberto Nisman headed an investigative team. Finally, on October 26, 2006, Argentina’s federal prosecutors formally charged Rafsanjani and seven of his government ministers and demanded that they be arrested.
Ali Akbar Velayati was Iran’s foreign minister at the time of the attack and, as mentioned above, was actively involved in the decision and the subsequent coordination of this terror attack.
On 12 January 2015, the blood-stained body of Alberto Nisman was found at his home, next to a 22mm caliber colt. His murder occurred just as he wanted to testify behind closed doors the same day by attending a congressional hearing, unveiling a deal with bloody dollars between Cristina Fernandez Kirchner’s government and the Iranian regime.
