Former Argentine President Cristina Kirchner Facing Potential Trials Over Both Iranian AMIA Bombing Cover-Up and Murder of Investigator Alberto Nisman

editor 9 March 2018

By Ben Cohen.. Former Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner is facing a potential double trial, as the latest twist in the investigation of the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires left the legal immunity that she is now entitled to as a member of the Senate looking more vulnerable. Federal Judge Claudio Bonadio ruled on Monday (March 5, 2018) that Kirchner, ex-foreign minister Héctor Timerman, and ten other close aides will face trial over a 2013 pact with Iran that whitewashed Tehran’s responsibility for the AMIA bombing — one of the worst-ever terrorist atrocities in Latin America, in which 85 people died and hundreds more were wounded.

editor 22 July 2016

By Toby Dershowitz.. The Obama administration has long said it will hold Iran accountable for acts of terrorism.

Eighty-five people were killed, and the attack injured hundreds more — innocent men, women and children. (more…)

The Jewish Temples: Where were they located?
By Dr. David R. Reagan.. I have been receiving a lot of inquiries recently concerning a Temple. The sub-title is, “Amazing New Discoveries That Change Everything About The Location Of Solomon’s Temple,” which reads like a Madison Avenue advertising slogan. The thesis of this book is startling. It asserts that the Jewish Temples (Solomon’s and Herod’s) were located south of the Temple Mount in the ancient City of David and that the entire Temple Mount was the Antonia Fortress where Roman troops were garrisoned. The author, Robert Cornuke, touts himself as a “former FBI trained police investigator.” Read the full story here(more…)
