7/31/20 Gareth Porter on the Real Story Behind the US-Israeli AMIA Bombing Narrative

by | Aug 1, 2020

Gareth Porter discusses the 1994 Buenos Aires Jewish community center bombing, and in particular the allegation that Hezbollah was behind the attack. Porter has written a piece based on testimony by an Argentinian undercover police officer that paints a different story. Porter’s theory—one that adheres much more closely to historical fact and personal testimony—is that it was really Argentinian neo-Nazis in the police force along with veterans of Argentina’s Dirty War that were responsible for the bombing, exposing anti-semitic trends that had long been simmering in the country. As has often been the case, the story about Iran was simply created in order to deflect blame toward a convenient enemy.
