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 [1], 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:

“Argenti­na Nabs Iran­ian-Hezbol­lah Cell, Aborts Third Habad Attack”; DEBKA; 1/28/2011. [10]

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. . . .
