Post 1945 there was one regime that murdered Jews because they were Jews and in particular because they were left-wing Jews. In Argentina between 1976 and 1983 3,000 of the Disappeared Ones were Jewish, 10% of those murdered by the fascists. Yet there was not one word of protest from Israel. Quite the contrary. It would seem that Israel was actually advising these torturers on 'counter-insurgency'.And here's Ha'aretz:
The Knesset yesterday unanimously approved a decision demanding that Argentina extradite to Israel those Argentina colonels and generals involved in mass killings during the country's military dictatorship from 1976-1983 so that they can be put on trial. Just 19 MKs were present for the debate.So now the victims of zionist-fascist collusion are dead, Israel wants to know them. I remember reading somewhere that, in spite of the well documented collaboration of zionists with the nazis from Hitler's rise to power to the tail end of the holocaust, Ben Gurion wanted to give Israeli citizenship to the holocaust dead when the State of Israel was established. Plus ça change!
MK Yossi Sarid (Meretz) proposed [I think that should be "opposed"] the move, saying that it was a "hypocritical discussion since all the facts have long been known and the government of Israel never once lifted a finger and cooperated with the Argentine murders because of their interest in arms deals."
The Knesset's decision, which takes the form of a declaration, follows reports that 40 former officers of the military junta were arrested in Argentina on Sunday on the orders of the new president, Nestor Kirchner, who said that he is prepared to extradite them to Spain.
The Knesset also called for mass graves to be opened to identify Jewish victims of the regime and bring them for burial to Israel.
