“In 1992, Iranian terror was a surprise and shock. Today, many of Argentina’s neighbors—including Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Cuba—have embraced Tehran by signing various agreements,” said B’nai B’rith International President Allan J. Jacobs. He added, “With members and supporters throughout Latin America, B’nai B’rith is uniquely positioned to speak out against Iranian terrorism throughout the region.”
“Because of Iran’s long record of funding and supporting terror worldwide, their bellicose rhetoric threatening Israel and the West, and their goal of attaining nuclear weapons capability, this anniversary should serve as an occasion for the world community to enact the strongest possible sanctions against Iran,” B’nai B’rith International Executive Vice President Daniel S. Mariaschin said.
B’nai B’rith will join with the rest of the Jewish community in the March 16 commemoration at the site of the bombing, which will be led by Vice Foreign Minister of Israel Danny Ayalon and an Israeli delegation including many of the diplomats who survived the bombing.
