According to Argentine Jewish leaders and media reports, the United States sided with Iran last week in a secret vote to downgrade international police alerts calling for the arrest of Iranian officials wanted by Argentina for their alleged role in the 1994 bombing, which killed 85 and wounded more than 300. The vote, taken by the General Assembly of Interpol, the 182-country international police agency, canceled the top-level alert for arrest warrants issued by
Argentina against 12 Iranians in 2003.
“We are just appalled by Interpol’s decision,” said Jorge Kirszenbaum, the head of DAIA, the central Jewish umbrella organization in Argentina. “We are particularly hurt that some countries who claim to be at the forefront of the fight against terrorism took that position.”
