Iton Gadol covered B’nai B’rith Argentina’s letter to Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero expressing dismay at the Argentine government’s silence in the face of horrific measures recently taken by the Iranian regime, including the order to execute soccer player Amir Nasr Azadani.

B’nai B’rith Argentina sent a letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship, Santiago Cafiero, to express his “republican perplexity at the silence of the Argentine Foreign Ministry in view of the recent decisions of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

“As it is public knowledge, these are resolutions that violate Human Rights, such as the order to execute Iranian soccer player Amir Nasr-Azadani,” the letter said.

“We are waiting for our country to make the relevant claim to the U.N. for this body to stop aberrant decisions that commit universal values,” he added.

“B’nai B’rith Argentina, founded in 1930 in Argentina, works for the permanent vindication of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which constitutes a basic commitment between the postulates of our Institution.
We greet you very sincerely,” concluded the letter signed by Santiago Kuperwajs and David M. Petliuk, secretary and president of the institution, respectively.
