AMIA, DAIA 'strongly reject' Argentina-Iran accord before Congress
The heads of the AMIA and DAIA Jewish umbrella organizations, Guillermo Borger and Julio Schlosser, strongly rejected the agreement signed between Argentina and Iran in order to create a truth commission looking to investigate the 1994 terrorist attack that left over 80 people dead.
During their contributions to Congress, the Jewish leaders did not accept Héctor Timerman’s statements and repeated they will not accept the agreement.
“As it is drafted, we cannot support it,” Schlosser said, and added that their rejection is not based on disagreements with the Government, but on their distrust of Iran as a valid speaker.
At the same time, Borger said “this is not a step forward, it’s a step backward. In any case, if this is a step forward, it’s a step towards a cliff.”
He also ratified his belief that this opens the doors to another attack in Argentina, although he clarified that he has no specific information of a new attack.
