Argentina, Don't Let the Terrorists Win

(Ha'aretz) Ronald Lauder - Argentina, under the leadership of President Mauricio Macri, has an opportunity to correct the historical injustice that occurred more than 20 years ago, when terrorists attacked the Israeli embassy and the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. Thanks to Alberto Nisman, the tenacious special prosecutor who took the lead in the AMIA case for more than a decade, the world knows who is to blame for that bombing: the Iranian regime and its henchmen, Hizbullah. As Nisman laid out in a report published in 2013, Iranian and Hizbullah operatives are active in many Latin American nations. Through Interpol, Argentina issued international warrants against key Iranian officials believed to be implicated in the AMIA bombing, including at the highest political echelon. Argentina must continue to press for the extradition of the terror suspects, no matter how senior or important they are. The attacks of Buenos Aires must not be forgotten. Argentina, and the world, must not let these terrorists win. The writer is president of the World Jewish Congress, which is meeting in Buenos Aires this week.
