Menem on his way to the jail
Argentine military and political elite is murmuring about the country having been taken over by the Jews. The bloody antisemites always maintained that the Jews were ruling the country, since the 1906 novel "La Bolsa" (when Argentine Jews were pennyless refugees from the Tzarist Empire), but now they may have really something to fear from the Jews.
The turning point was in 1994, when a car full of high explosives destroyed AMIA, the building of the Jewish community, killing 85 people. The police destroyed evidence and mismanaged the investigation is such an incompetent criollo manner that soon it became known that the President himself, Carlos Menem (1988 - 1999) and his brother Munir Menem were actively working in the cover up.
For sixteen years the Jewish community doggedly pushed ahead the investigation and slowly all the local participants have been identified and put in jail. Only the Iranians have escaped and are enjoying the lives of heroes in Teheran. But the Jewish community has organized itself and has been worked methodically now for sixteen years and dozens of police and military officers were implicated in the ciminal act and sentenced. Now they have reached the head of the pyramide, the sanguinary head of SIDE (the secret police), the brother and factotum of the President, and the President himself. Soon they will all be sentenced and sent to the Ushuaia penitenciary in Tierra del Fuego.
In the long fight for justice, the organized Jewish community has acquired an enormous influence and much political power in Argentina. It is a small community, of 250 - 300,000 people, in a country of nearly 40 million, but they have an impact in Argentina like the Jewish community in the USA.
If not for the dynamiting of AMIA in 1994, Argentina today could be like Chavez's Venezuela, a country allied to Iran and violently anti-American and anti-Israel, with a frightened Jewish community. Instead, Argentina is strongly pro-Israel, with a power and revenge seeking Jewish community inside. Say thanks to the Ayatollahs.
