Iran Building Terror Network in South America

(Jerusalem Post) Hilary Leila Krieger - Alberto Nisman, the Argentinean prosecutor who ferreted out Iranian links to the July 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community offices in Buenos Aires and secured Interpol backing for the arrest of several Iranians, warned Wednesday of Tehran's growing terror network in Latin America. "The Iranians are moving fast....We see a much greater penetration than we did in 1994." He said that Iran, particularly through Lebanese proxy Hizbullah, has a growing presence in Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua. Nisman called on other countries to refuse to welcome Iranian leaders to international forums like the UN until they adhere to Interpol-backed warrants and hand over the Iranians wanted by Argentina.
