New Iranian president tied to Jewish center bombing

Friday, June 21, 2013 |  Israel Today Staff

Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad might be famous for wanting to kill Jews, but his predecessor, the allegedly "moderate" Hassan Rohani, has apparently actually done so.

An American newspaper this week pointed out that a 2006 indictment by the government in Argentina had listed Rohani as one of the co-conspirators in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires.

The attack, which killed 85 people and wounded hundreds more, was, according to Argentina, carried out by Hezbollah, but was ordered from Tehran.

The Argentine government investigator stated that the attack was planned and given a green light by Iran's Supreme National Security Council, which is headed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini.

A former Iranian intelligence official testified in the case that Rohani was also a member of that council, as was former Iranian President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, himself hailed throughout the West as a "moderate."

As Israelis have been pointing out since his election last week, Rohani might have more tact and style than Ahmadinejad, but he hates Israel every bit as much.
