Iranian/Hezbollah Terror Team Allegedly Arrested in Argentina: Descendants of WWII Nazis Involved in Plot?


COMMENT: A joint Iranian/Hezbollah ter­ror team has been arrest­ed in Argenti­na for plot­ting to attack a Habad cen­ter in Argenti­na, accord­ing to the DEBKA newslet­ter. (DEBKA has some good infor­ma­tion in it, but has an edi­to­r­i­al bias that favors the Israeli right wing, which itself has a fas­cist her­itage, as we’ve seen.  Its con­tent must be hand­i­capped accord­ing­ly.)

Of sig­nif­i­cance is the pos­si­ble role that descen­dants of World War II Nazis may have played in  assist­ing the attacks. DEBKA alleges that Argen­tine author­i­ties are inves­ti­gat­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the Iranian/Hezbollah team may have assist­ed in the bomb­ing of the Israeli embassy in 1992, and are look­ing into the pos­si­bil­i­ty that sim­i­lar ele­ments may have assist­ed this plot.

In this regard, it is impor­tant to note sev­er­al things:

  • We’ve looked at the San Car­los de Bar­iloche area in con­nec­tion with the arrest of Eric Priebke.
  • That area is indeed an epi­cen­ter of ODESSA/Under­ground Reich activ­i­ties.
  • We have also looked at Nazi/White Supremacist/Iranian/Hezbollah activ­i­ty in Argenti­na in con­nec­tion with the AMIA bomb­ing. There are evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries run­ning between that attack and the first World Trade Cen­ter attack in 1993, the Okla­homa City bomb­ing, the bomb­ing of Pan Am 103 over Locker­bie,  and the 9/11 attacks.
  • DEBKA makes no men­tion of the AMIA bomb­ing.
  • In our exam­i­na­tion of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, we have seen Paul Man­ning’s research that the orga­ni­za­tion is admin­is­tered by descen­dants of high-rank­ing Nazis. This is con­sis­tent with the work­ing hypoth­e­sis DEBKA presents vis a vis the Argenti­na inves­ti­ga­tions.

“Argenti­na Nabs Iran­ian-Hezbol­lah Cell, Aborts Third Habad Attack”; DEBKA; 1/28/2011.

EXCERPT: Argenti­na has cap­tured a three-man Iran­ian-Hizbal­lah cell and is hunt­ing for the rest of the net­work, accord­ing to exclu­sive DEBKAfile sources. Its counter-ter­ror police were a step ahead of attacks plot­ted against sev­er­al of the 10 Habad cen­ters in the coun­try, part of a world­wide joint ter­ror­ist offen­sive against Israeli and Jew­ish tar­gets. Two strikes were thwart­ed ear­li­er this month in Thai­land and Azer­bai­jan.

The three-man cell was cap­tured in the Argen­tine resort town of San Car­los de Bar­iloche, 1,680 kilo­me­ters from Buenos Aires, a favorite start­ing-point for Israeli back­pack­ers tour­ing Patag­o­nia and the Andes. . . .

. . . . In 1992, the[Israeli] embassy [in Argenti­na] was attacked by Iran­ian ter­ror­ists killing 29 peo­ple and injur­ing 242. DEBKAfile’s intel­li­gence and counter-ter­ror sources reveal that one of the things the inves­ti­ga­tion seeks to dis­cov­er this time is whether the cap­tured Iran­ian-Hizbal­lah cell was giv­en a safe house, guid­ance and aid by fam­i­ly mem­bers of World War II Nazi crim­i­nals who won sanc­tu­ary in Argenti­na.. At the time of the Israeli embassy bomb­ing twen­ty years ago, the Iran­ian and Hizbal­lah ter­ror­ists were sus­pect­ed of work­ing hand in glove with local pro-Nazi ele­ments.  Argenti­na, Ger­many and Israel nev­er con­firmed this.

How­ev­er, San Car­los de Bar­iloche is known as a post-1945 Nazi haven. . . .

  1. There was a movie where a char­ac­ter says “This is a nice lit­tle town, except for all the damned vam­pires.” Replace ‘vam­pires’ with ‘nazis’ and you get the pic­ture of San Car­los de Bar­iloche.

    Amaz­ing­ly, the fol­low­ing made it through Wikipedi­a’s white­bread fil­ters:

    Nazis in Bar­iloche

    Bar­iloche made head­lines in the inter­na­tion­al press in 1995 when it became known as a haven for Nazi war crim­i­nals such as the for­mer SS Haupt­sturm­führer Erich Priebke. Priebke had been the direc­tor of the Ger­man School of Bar­iloche for many years.

    In his 2004 book Bar­iloche nazi-guía turís­ti­ca, Argen­tine author Abel Basti claims that Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun lived in the sur­round­ings of Bar­iloche for many years after World War II.[2][3] The estate of Inal­co has been point­ed out by Abel Basti as the place that Argen­tine Nazis chose as Hitler’s refuge.[2]

    A book pub­lished by British authors[who?] in 2011 pro­posed that Hitler and Eva Braun hid at Hacien­da San Ramon, six miles east of Bar­iloche, until the ear­ly 1960s. This account is dis­put­ed by oth­er historians.[4]

    :end quote

    It all makes a good plot for a 1940s ser­i­al pot­boil­er, but there’s still more. The town can also boast of some mad (lit­er­al­ly insane) Nazi sci­en­tists work­ing on fusion for Per­on.

    A nice place to vis­it but I would­n’t want to leben there.

  2. The war between Britain and Argenti­na over the Falk­lands was run by Nazis.

    Imag­ine the Nazi delight at sink­ing Roy­al Navy ves­sels...

    This time not sure Britain will be able to get the islands back..

    We miss you Har­ri­ers.

  3. @G: Manip­u­la­tion of both sides? Very pos­si­ble I sup­pose, though I nev­er saw much proof of that, TBH.

  4. I just com­plet­ed a rather long post on the gen­e­sis of the Iran­ian nuclear pro­gram. It is a press con­fer­ence pre­sent­ed by EMPact Amer­i­ca, an orga­ni­za­tion offi­cial­ly ded­i­cat­ed to inform the pub­lic about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of nuclear or elec­tro-mag­net­ic pulse attacks. Of course, Iran is the main tar­get of the group. I am not sure that every­thing they say is com­plete­ly true (obvi­ous­ly, they don’t men­tion the Under­ground Reich, Argenti­na, Odessa, the Bor­mann Cap­i­tal Net­work, etc, or Fara Man­soor’s research) but at least it gives a clear pic­ture of the assess­ment made by the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty about the sit­u­a­tion of the nuclear pro­gram in Iran, what they can say about it pub­licly, and the odds that it could pro­duce and launch nuclear bombs against us. Two quo­ta­tions are absolute­ly price­less: one by Ken­neth Tim­mer­man at the begin­ning of the post, and the oth­er by Brzezin­s­ki at the end. Don’t miss that. Lis­ten to it and tell me what you think, here or on my blog.

    Two Argenti­na bomb­ing sus­pects among Iran pres­i­den­tial hope­fuls
    Mohsen Rezai and Ali Akbar Velay­ati, believed to have planned the 1994 attack, among eight can­di­dates approved Tues­day

    BUENOS AIRES, Argenti­na (JTA) — Two sus­pects in the bomb­ing of the AMIA Jew­ish cen­ter in Buenos Aires are can­di­dates in Iran’s pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

    Mohsen Rezai and Ali Akbar Velay­ati, who are believed to have planned the 1994 attack, were among the eight can­di­dates approved Tues­day for the June 14 elec­tion by Iran’s Guardian Coun­cil to suc­ceed Mah­moud Ahmadine­jad.

    The Iran­ian con­sti­tu­tion bars Ahmadine­jad from seek­ing re-elec­tion.

    Rezai is under an inter­na­tion­al arrest war­rant, or red notice, from the Inter­pol inter­na­tion­al police agency.

    Argenti­na has accused the Iran­ian gov­ern­ment of direct­ing the bomb­ing, which killed 85 and injured 300, and the Lebanon-based ter­ror group Hezbol­lah of car­ry­ing it out. No arrests have been made in the case.

    Six Ira­ni­ans have been on Inter­pol ’s most want­ed list since 2007 in con­nec­tion with the bomb­ing, includ­ing the cur­rent defense min­is­ter, Gen. Ahmed Vahi­di.

    The Argen­tin­ian For­eign Min­istry said Tues­day in a state­ment that Argenti­na has received “no for­mal noti­fi­ca­tion” about Iran’s offi­cial approval of an agree­ment for the two coun­tries to joint­ly probe the AMIA attack.

    Iran’s busi­ness com­mis­sion­er to Buenos Aires, Ali Pak­daman, had said a day ear­li­er that Ahmadine­jad offi­cial­ly approved the agree­ment to cre­ate a Truth Com­mis­sion inves­ti­gat­ing the bomb­ing.

    The state­ment issued by the office head­ed by For­eign Min­is­ter Hec­tor Timer­man said that only when the for­mal noti­fi­ca­tion is received by the for­eign min­istries of Argenti­na and Iran will “the deal be put into oper­a­tion.”

    Iran also is believed to be behind the 1992 car bomb­ing that destroyed the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 and injur­ing 242.

  6. @Vanfield–

    In this con­text, bear in mind that the Argen­tin­ian secu­ri­ty offi­cers impli­cat­ed at the oper­a­tional lev­el of the plot were found to be mem­bers of WAR–White Aryan Resis­tance. That is an Amer­i­can white-suprema­cist orga­ni­za­tion that, accord­ing to some accounts, Tim­o­thy McVeigh belonged.

  7. Basti’s work seems to have borne out to some extent as can be seen in the book, ‘The Grey Wolf’ by Simon Dun­stan and Ger­rard Williams (Ster­ling, NY, 2011). He begins by pro­vid­ing back­ground on the accu­mu­la­tion by the Nazis of gold, loot, and art trea­sures and the nego­ti­a­tions by proxy with Kaltenbrun­ner and Dulles in the clos­ing days of the war. Much of the infor­ma­tion is cor­rob­o­rat­ed with the Gre­go­ry Dou­glas arti­cles used in the Flight of the Wolf show of 1993. Lat­er on it dis­cuss­es the devel­op­m­ment of the Bor­mann Orga­ni­za­tion with the help of peo­ple like Lud­wig Freude, Hein­rich Doerge, Juan and Eva Per­on, and, of course, Bor­mann and Mueller. A fas­ci­nat­ing read so far.
