Argentina considering ‘softening’ the country’s position on terrorist group Hezbollah

Thousands of Nazi officers, high-ranking party members and collaborators—including many notorious war criminals—escaped across the Atlantic, finding refuge in Argentina. SoArgentina has an ugly history of antisemitism. This will further serve to alienate the Argentines from civilized nations or an opportunity to engage in rational, human discourse with world leaders.

Well that didn’t take long. The corrupt and pro-Iran Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has re-emerged as Argentina’s new vice president. A such, it is not a surprise that Argentina’s new government would consider re-evaluating their position on Hezbollah shortly after their election victory.

Even if de Kirchner and new president Alberto Fernandez decide (at least for now) against weakening Hezbollah’s terrorist designation, Hezbollah’s leaders can now expect that their malign activities in the region will go practically unchecked. This is just another example of how dangerous it is to elect a Leftist government.

Argentina considering ‘softening’ the country’s position on Hezbollah

Elected president Alberto Fernandez may plan to make a distinction between the political and Military wings of the Lebanese organization

By Jerusalem Post, November 21, 2019:

Argentina’s president elect Alberto Fernandez is considering making changes to his country’s statement regarding Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. The change includes distinguishing between its military and political wings, according to the statement received by the Israeli embassy in ArgentinaYnet reports.

This announcement was made at the president’s office in a meeting between him and the Israeli ambassador. There, he spoke of his desire to make a correction to the Hezbollah announcement made in July. This means softening the decision regarding the Lebanese organization.

State sources in Jerusalem have stated in response that “it’s unclear if it’s an experiment or his true intention.” Those same sources added that it would be very difficult for Argentina to reverse its decision, mostly since the American administration will not see eye-to-eye with them, and that such a decision would make it difficult for the country to exchange intel with other Western countries.

In Israel, the estimation is that the one trying to make the change is former president and current vice president Christina Kirchner.Fernandez, who used to be Kirchner’s vice president, has already confronted her in the past over an agreement she was signed on to with Iran regarding the investigation of a terrorist attack in Buenos Aires. This is why they are finding it hard in Jerusalem to believe that Fernandez is supportive of the decision, and suspect that the announcement has to with pressure from Kirchner and her party.
