Attack on Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires

Date: 
Tuesday, March 17, 1992
Country: 
Argentina

This took place in March 1992, and completely demolished the Israeli Embassy, with 29 people dead.  It took our country by surprise, as we had not seen such dreadful acts since Argentina was targeted by international guerrilla movements in the seventies, nor have we had anything like that ever since. We are, as a people, a veritable melting pot bringing together myriads of immigrants and ethnic groups living peacefully side-by-side with little or no racial or religious conflict.

These two attacks occurred under the administration of former president Carlos Menem, who was closely aligned with US global policies (George Bush Senior was President of the US at the time) and, by extension, with the policies of the State of Israel and of global Zionist organizations.

Notably, in both cases, the government and the media immediately placed the blame squarely on alleged “Islamic Fundamentalist Terror Groups” who were supposed to have used car bombs to blow up both buildings. As the years went by, however, any “Islamic Terror Group” links became weaker and increasingly ambiguous. Neither of the alleged car-bomb vehicles were ever found. Today, these two cases have become paradigms of systematic interference by a wide array of pressure groups acting upon our government, the courts and, through the media, on public opinion.

The case involving the Israeli Embassy has suffered a gradual information black-out as time has passed for various “understandable reasons”, at least, from a Zionist standpoint. To begin with, because the target was the embassy of a foreign power, understandably Israel had a strong influence on actions that were taken and the dissemination of information.

However, the case for a car bomb melted away when the State Prosecutor and the Court hearing on this case invited technical specialist surveyors from the Argentine National Engineers Academy to determine what caused the Israeli Embassy building to collapse. Their conclusion was that the explosion took place from inside the building and was not caused by an alleged car-bomb. To make matters worse for Zionist pressure groups, a passer-by had filmed from several blocks away the mushroom cloud that rose from that explosion, a characteristic effect that also pointed to an internal explosion.

1992 bomb attack at the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires.

The embassy building was in a very densely populated part of Buenos Aires and, although the shock wave broke glass windows and plaster of practically all the buildings across the street from the Embassy – even blowing-in a vitreaux of a church across the street, which sadly fell on a priest and killed him – the only building structurally affected was the Embassy itself. Clearly, we either had a car bomb with an unrealistically selective shock wave or the explosion took place inside the building and there was no car bomb.

There are many other signs that point to this conclusion. Probably, for this reason, the case of the Embassy was mentioned less and less frequently by the media, especially after strong rumours surfaced that what actually blew up was an arsenal that the Israelis apparently had housed in the building’s basement. At the time of the explosion, a group of Israeli Labour Government officers were meeting to discuss matters pertaining to the recently initiated Madrid Peace Conference process, but “luckily” left the building just before the explosion. The same occurred with the Ambassador himself who, fortuitously, also happened to depart the premises before the blast.
