- Soral au tribunal pour une «quenelle» au mémorial de l'Holocauste à Berlin (AFP)
http://www.20minutes.fr/societe/1558659-20150310-soral-tribunal-quenelle-memorial-holocauste-berlin
   "L'essayiste d'extrême droite Alain Soral comparaît jeudi devant le tribunal correctionnel de Paris pour avoir publié une photo le présentant au Mémorial de l'Holocauste, à Berlin, en train de faire une «quenelle». Fin 2013, la photo d'Alain Soral faisant une «quenelle» dans les allées de la fondation commémorative des Juifs assassinés en Europe, le Mémorial de l'Holocauste à Berlin, commencent à circuler sur plusieurs sites internet. [...]
   «J'ai fait une petite quenelle là-bas qui veut bien dire que j'en ai marre de l'instrumentalisation de la souffrance des Juifs d'Europe centrale entre 1933 et 1945 utilisée aujourd'hui par le sionisme international», explique-t-il dans cette vidéo. Pour lui, l'interprétation qui a été faite de son geste relève de la méprise, argument qu'il entend reprendre devant le tribunal, selon son conseil. [...]"

   "À 51 ans, Fouad Jabal s'apprête à voter pour la première fois de sa vie. Le 17 mars prochain, ce prospère chef d'entreprise apportera sa voix à la liste unie qui, phénomène sans précédent, rassemble les quatre principaux partis arabes israéliens. Craignant d'être évincés de la future Knesset après qu'une loi a récemment élevé le seuil d'éligibilité, communistes, islamistes et nationalistes arabes ont en effet décidé de mettre leurs divisions en sourdine. «C'est un tournant», veut croire Fouad Jabal, qui a longtemps considéré ces modestes formations avec un brin d'irritation. «Leurs querelles incessantes, ainsi que leur obsession pour le conflit israélo-palestinien au détriment de nos préoccupations quotidiennes avaient fini par les rendre inutiles», estime-t-il.

- Where's the Coverage? Israel the Best Country in the MidEast for Women (CAMERA) - "it is a bit surprising, given the news media’s focus on the Middle East, that there was no coverage of the fact that, according to a World Economic Forum report, Israel ranks as the best country in the Middle East for women. A Google news search turned up nearly 8.4 million stories on International Women’s Day, but the press did not find this fact newsworthy. The media did not mention that in educational attainment and health and survival, there is virtually no gender gap in Israel. They were silent on the fact that among technical and professional workers in Israel, women surpass men".

They recognize Hamas' unique tactics of cynically putting their own civilian population in danger in order to add a public relations dimension to what they call "unrestricted warfare""; "The generals also directly criticize NGOs for their ignorance of the laws of armed conflict"; "Ironically, the authors criticize Israel for going beyond the laws of armed conflict in protecting civilians - which could hurt Western armies in future wars"; "Amnesty, HRW and the UN make pronouncements about the laws of armed conflict without actually knowing those laws.

   "Les forces de sécurité palestiniennes ont interpellé plusieurs dizaines de partisans du Hamas en Cisjordanie, dont certains de ses dirigeants, lors d'opérations menées dans la nuit de dimanche à lundi, a fait savoir l'organisation islamiste. [...] Le Hamas, qui contrôle la bande de Gaza et jouit aussi d'un large soutien parmi la population de Cisjordanie occupée, a précisé que certains de ses dirigeants, ainsi que des étudiants, des écrivains et des journalistes affiliés au Hamas étaient au nombre des personnes interpellées. Ces arrestations font suite à l'interpellation, récemment dans la bande de Gaza, de plusieurs dizaines de militants du Fatah, la faction du président palestinien Mahmoud Abbas. Si le Hamas et le Fatah ont formé un gouvernement d'union nationale en avril dernier, ces deux factions rivales coopèrent peu et ne font guère preuve d'unité sur le terrain."

- 'Israeli construction in West Bank settlements dropped by 52% in 2014' (JP) - contrairement à ce que nos médias assènent régulièrement, il y a eu moins de constructions au-delà de la Ligne Verte durant les six années de mandat de Nétanyahou que durant les six années précédentes, sous les mandats d'Ariel Sharon et d'Ehoud Olmert.
http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Politics-And-Diplomacy/Israeli-construction-in-West-Bank-settlements-dropped-by-52-percent-in-2014-393553
   "Housing starts in settlements in 2014 dropped 52 percent compared to the previous year, according to Central Bureau of Statistics figures released Tuesday as the Likud and Bayit Yehudi parties vied for right-wing votes by showcasing their strong support for Judea and Samaria.
   [...] when it comes to actual building within West Bank settlements, Netanyahu’s track record as prime minister in the past six years has been worse than that of the previous six years, when the country was led by Ariel Sharon and then by Ehud Olmert. According to CBS data, housing starts in West Bank settlements were down by 19% when comparing the two periods, from 11,366 units between 2003 and 2008, to 9,216 between 2009 and 2014, during Netanyahu’s premiership. This data does not include construction in Jerusalem beyond the pre-1967 lines.
    Netanyahu’s return to office in 2009, after having lost the premiership to Ehud Barak in 1998, started off strong in West Bank construction, with 1,963 housing starts. But the figure immediately plunged into its worst year in decades when the prime minister issued a 10-month moratorium on housing starts from November 2009 through September 2010.
    The number of starts remained low until 2013, during the US-led peace process, when ground was broken for 2,829 homes. However, CBS data released Tuesday showed that in 2014, as the peace process fell apart, the number of starts plunged to 1,344, dropping by 52% over the previous year, compared to the countrywide dip of 7.9%. Similarly, Netanyahu’s record on the number of finished settler homes showed a 15% drop when compared to the six years before he took office, according to CBS data. From 2009 to 2014, 9,715 homes were finished in West Bank settlements compared with 11,425 homes from 2003 to 2008, according to the CBS. [...]"

   "Yesterday, Abbas' Fatah party celebrated the anniversary of a bus hijacking in which Fatah terrorists murdered 37 Israeli civilians. On Facebook, Fatah posted a text glorifying the attack. A striking element of Fatah's glorification and celebration of the attack was the decision to exaggerate the number of Israelis killed, in order to make the "operation" seem greater and more successful: "A huge self-sacrificing operation in Herzliya, Tel Aviv. 80 Israelis killed and over 100 wounded." [Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," March 10, 2015]
    In March 1978, a group of Fatah terrorists from Lebanon hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway. Confronted by the Israeli army, the terrorists killed many of the passengers on the bus, in total 37 civilians,12 of them children, and wounded more than 70. The attack is known in Israel as the Coastal Road massacre.
    In 2010, the PA dedicated a square in Ramallah to Dalal Mughrabi, who led the attack, by naming it after her. That square was also chosen this year by Fatah for a public event taking place today, celebrating its killing of Israeli civilians: "We will mark the anniversary of the heroic coastal operation (i.e., the Coastal Road massacre), which was led by Martyr (Shahida) Dalal Mughrabi, and the deaths as Martyrs of Dalal and her heroic friends, at 3:30 p.m. across from Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Square in Ramallah."

- The Palestinians Want... Peace?, Khaled Abu Toameh (Gatestone Institute) - "If Abbas is interested in returning to the negotiating table with Israel (as he sometimes declares he is), then he needs to prepare his people for that and not incite them even more against Israel".
http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/5347/palestinians-want-peace
   "One of the reasons why it would be very difficult for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to return to the negotiating table with Israel is the massive campaign the Palestinians have launched to promote boycotts of Israel. This campaign is being waged by PA President Mahmoud Abbas's loyalists in Fatah and the PLO. Those who are today calling for a boycott of Israeli products, such as milk and dairy products, will be the first to stand against any attempt to resume the peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel in the future.
    Although Abbas himself has publicly spoken against the international movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) of Israel, now he seems to have given his tacit support for the current campaign in the West Bank. During a visit to South Africa in late 2013, Abbas told reporters, "No, we don't support the boycott of Israel. But we ask everyone to boycott the products of the settlements."
    But the latest PLO and Fatah campaign is not directed only against settlement products. Rather, it is targeting anything that is made in Israel, including milk, biscuits and chocolate. The campaign against Israeli products is the latest in a series of anti-Israel and anti-peace measures that PLO and Fatah activists have taken in recent years. These measures include the establishment of an "anti-normalization" movement whose goal is to thwart any encounters between Israelis and Palestinians, including sports matches and peace conferences.
    In January last year, scores of Palestinians attacked a hotel in Ramallah where Israelis and Palestinians were holding a meeting to talk peace. The Israelis were evacuated under Palestinian police protection and handed over to Israeli authorities. It is worth noting that Abbas and the Palestinian Authority leadership never denounced the attack on the peace gathering, which occurred less than three miles away from the PA president's office and private residence. Because of the "anti-normalization" campaign, it has become impossible and even unsafe to organize any public meeting between Israelis and Palestinians, not only in the West Bank, but also in other parts of the world.
    A number of Palestinian journalists who participated in a conference attended by Israeli colleagues in a European capital were punished by being expelled from the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate. Palestinian children who participated in a soccer match with Israelis reported that they had received threats from "anti-normalization" activists in the West Bank. A more recent attempt to organize a meeting between Israeli and Palestinian peace activists in Bethlehem was called off after organizers said they received death threats from Palestinians.
    Now that the "anti-normalization" movement has succeeded in putting an end to public meetings between Israelis and Palestinians, the PLO and Fatah are moving on to the next stage, namely promoting boycotts of Israeli products. After preventing Israelis from entering Palestinian communities, now they are working toward blocking the entry of any goods made in Israel.
    Abbas's Fatah and PLO loyalists, launching a massive campaign to promote the boycott of Israeli goods, last week seized a truck in Ramallah loaded with Israeli-made milk and other dairy products. They destroyed all its contents in the center of the city, under the watchful eye of Palestinian Authority policemen [voir image sur le site].
    Mahmoud Aloul, a senior Fatah official who is closely associated with Abbas, defended the destruction of the dairy products and called for stepping up boycott campaigns against Israel. "Fatah is working toward consolidating the culture of boycotting Israeli products in Palestinian society by all means so that it would become an essential part of the upbringing and education of Palestinian generations," Aloul explained. "We are headed toward confrontation with Israel."
    Following the confiscation of the truck in Ramallah, Palestinian merchants in another West Bank city, Jenin, complained that Fatah activists have demanded they stop selling Israeli products, accompanied by threats. The merchants were told that they had one week to get rid of eight Israeli products or else they would face punishment.
    When Aloul and other Palestinian officials talk about preparations for another "confrontation" with Israel, they are referring to the Palestinian Authority's efforts to promote boycotts of Israel in the local and international arenas, as well as filing "war crimes" charges against Israelis at the International Criminal Court. So while some Israelis, Americans and Europeans are talking about the need to revive the peace process after the March 17 elections in Israel, the Palestinians are clearly moving in a different direction.
    The PA's strategy now is to intensify its campaign to isolate and delegitimize Israel in the international community and promote all forms of boycotts of Israelis and Israeli goods. The PA is now convinced that the only way to force Israel to make concessions is through international pressure and the promotion of campaigns of boycott and divestment.
    This strategy was reflected in this week's resolution by the PLO Central Council in Ramallah. After a two-day meeting, the Council decided to suspend all forms of security coordination with Israel and called for boycotting Israeli goods. "The PLO's Central Council reaffirms the continuation of boycotting Israeli goods as a form of popular resistance," the Council said. "It calls on the free people of the world and the committees of solidarity with the Palestinian people to boycott Israeli goods and withdraw investments."
    Campaigns calling for the boycott of Israelis and Israeli products are further radicalizing Palestinians, driving many of them into the open arms of radical groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad. If Abbas is interested in returning to the negotiating table with Israel (as he sometimes declares he is), then he needs to prepare his people for that and not incite them even more against Israel.
    Those who destroy milk and dairy products in the center of Ramallah will also lynch any Israeli Jew they see in their city. This has happened before and could happen once again if the Fatah and PLO campaign of incitement against Israel continues. And those who are opposed to the presence of Israeli products in their villages and cities will be the first to oppose the resumption of peace talks between Palestinians and Israelis."

- Muslim Brotherhood Condemns Egypt Court Decision, Calls for Destruction of Israel, Steven Emerson (Algemeiner)
http://www.algemeiner.com/2015/03/09/muslim-brotherhood-condemns-egypt-court-decision-calls-for-destruction-of-israel/
   "The Muslim Brotherhood condemned an Egyptian court decision to designate Hamas as a terrorist organization, and called for the destruction of the Jewish State, according to an Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) translation of a Brotherhood statement released on its Arabic website. “The Zionist entity will continue to be its historic enemy until the complete liberation of the land. We will soon celebrate, if God wills, the collapse of this coup and the return of Egypt to its role in protecting the Arab national security,” reads the Brotherhood statement.
    The “complete liberation of the land” in this context directly refers to Israel’s destruction. The declaration also expressed support for Hamas as the main “legitimate organization” of the Palestinian people. The Palestinian terrorist group is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was also declared as a terrorist organization in Egypt as part of a systematic campaign against radical Islamism.
    Another Muslim Brotherhood statement, translated by the IPT, refers to Hamas as “the honor of the Umma [global Muslim community]“, glorifies Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel, and calls for continued resistance against the Egyptian regime. [The Egyptian court ruling] places little value on the Resistance against practices of the Zionist enemy, and sacrifices it puts forth, exerting life and treasure to liberate al Aqsa, the Holy Places and all occupied Palestinian territory. Thus, we refuse to recognize the rulings of the judges of the military coup and all their ludicrous rulings, stressing that we will continue to besiege the military coup until it topples, considering it part of the Zionist project…,” reads the Brotherhood statement.

- Petraeus: "We Cannot Allow Them to Be on the Brink of Having a Nuclear Weapon" (CAMERA)
http://blog.camera.org/archives/2015/03/petraeus_we_cannot_allow_them.html
   "In a far-reaching interview with Ronen Bergman, correspondent for Ynet (the on-line version of the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahranoth), General David Petraeus expresses broad concern with where the Middle East is headed.
    On the question of whether it is acceptable for Iran to be "a few turns of the screwdriver" away from having a nuclear bomb, Petraeus stated, "based on everything we know and see about the Iranian government, we cannot allow them to be on the brink of having a nuclear weapon. For all intents and purposes, that is a distinction without a difference, including with respect to its implications for regional proliferation."
    The architect of the "surge" in Iraq and former head of the CIA in the Obama administration, Petraeus agrees with the hard-line taken by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on what has to happen to the Iranian nuclear program. He asserts, "To my mind, a 'good deal' needs to bolt the door on the Iranians getting a nuclear weapon. In this respect, certainly large swaths of the program need to be dismantled or at least altered."
    However, he has one significant difference with Netanyahu in his assessment of the current proposed deal between the United States and Iran. According to Petraeus: "Despite the willingness of the Obama administration to meet the Iranians more than halfway, I think the prospects for a breakthrough are still less than 50-50...Ultimately, I have my doubts whether the Supreme Leader will ever agree to roll back components of the nuclear program – which is what any deal would require, even one assessed as favorable to the Iranians – and agree to accept that sanctions relief will be gradual and not immediate. But we shall see." [...]"

- The Iranian Regime on Israel's Right to Exist, Jeffrey Goldberg (The Atlantic) - "The Iranian regime is not populated by Nazis, but it is led by people who do, in fact, seek the physical elimination of the Jewish state and its replacement by a Muslim state. It works toward this end, by sponsoring terrorist groups that regularly kill Jews, both in Israel and elsewhere".
http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2015/03/Iranian-View-of-Israel/387085/
   "The Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, wants Jews to know that he, and the country he represents, are their friends. In an interview with Ann Curry, he accused the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, of intentionally misreading Jewish scripture in order to make the case that Iran is malevolently predisposed toward Jews: “If you read the Book of Esther, you will see that it was the Iranian king who saved the Jews," Zarif said. "If you read the Old Testament, you will see that it was an Iranian king who saved the Jews from Babylon. Esther has a town in Iran where our Jewish population, which is the largest in the Middle East, visits on a regular basis.”
    It is true that, at different times, and in different ways, Persia has been a friend of the Jews. Cyrus the Great (the Iranian king mentioned by Zarif in the interview) restored the Jews to their homeland in the Land of Israel after their Babylonian exile. President Harry Truman, who recognized the state of Israel in 1948, 11 minutes after it was reborn, later proclaimed proudly, "I am Cyrus."
    There is dark humor (or a lack of self-awareness) in Zarif's citation of Cyrus as proof of Iranian philo-Semitism, because today's Iranian leadership does not recognize Jewish sovereignty in Israel, as Cyrus once did, but instead seeks the annihilation of the Jewish state.
    I am in favor of a negotiated agreement that will keep Iran at least a year away from a nuclear weapon in part because, in the post-Holocaust era, it is crucially important to keep such weapons out of the hands of those who promise to do Jews real harm. As I've written, it is not likely that Iran would launch a preemptive nuclear attack on Israel, but it would almost certainly redouble, under the protection of a nuclear umbrella, its work toward Israel's eradication, with disastrous consequences. (We'll have the argument over whether the agreement now taking shape is the best possible deal in another post. Suffice it to say that the parameters of the current, still-unfinished deal are cause for some worry.)
    Netanyahu's deployment of the Holocaust to make his case against Iran (and against the current deal) is controversial. There are many aspects of Netanyahu's approach I find disagreeable and counterproductive (most, actually), but an Israeli prime minister who does not recognize that extinction-level threats directed at Jews have sometimes been more than aspirational is not fulfilling his responsibilities. [...]
    The Iranian regime is not populated by Nazis, but it is led by people who do, in fact, seek the physical elimination of the Jewish state and its replacement by a Muslim state. It works toward this end, by sponsoring terrorist groups that regularly kill Jews, both in Israel and elsewhere.
    So, as a reminder to those who argue that Jews should stop worrying so much about people who threaten to kill them, here is some (just some) of what Iran's leaders, and leaders of its proxy militia, Hezbollah, in Lebanon, have said about Israel:
    - Mohammad Khatami, the former president of Iran: “If we abide by real legal laws, we should mobilize the whole Islamic world for a sharp confrontation with the Zionist regime … if we abide by the Koran, all of us should mobilize to kill.” (2000)
    - Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: “It is the mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to erase Israel from the map of the region.” (2001)
    - Hassan Nasrallah, a leader of Hezbollah: “If they [Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” (2002)
    - Nasrallah: “Israel is our enemy. This is an aggressive, illegal, and illegitimate entity, which has no future in our land. Its destiny is manifested in our motto: ‘Death to Israel.’” (2005)
    - Yahya Rahim Safavi, the former commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps: “With God’s help the time has come for the Zionist regime’s death sentence.” (2008)
    - Mohammad Hassan Rahimian, Khamenei’s representative to the Moustazafan Foundation: “We have manufactured missiles that allow us, when necessary to replace [sic] Israel in its entirety with a big holocaust.” (2010)
    - Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of the Basij paramilitary force: “We recommend them [the Zionists] to pack their furniture and return to their countries. And if they insist on staying, they should know that a time while arrive when they will not even have time to pack their suitcases.” (2011)
    - Khamenei: “The Zionist regime is a cancerous tumor and it will be removed.” (2012)
    - Ahmad Alamolhoda, a member of the Assembly of Experts: “The destruction of Israel is the idea of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and is one of the pillars of the Iranian Islamic regime. We cannot claim that we have no intention of going to war with Israel.” (2013)
    - Nasrallah: “The elimination of Israel is not only a Palestinian interest. It is the interest of the entire Muslim world and the entire Arab world.” (2013)
    - Hojateleslam Alireza Panahian, the advisor to Office of the Supreme Leader in Universities: “The day will come when the Islamic people in the region will destroy Israel and save the world from this Zionist base.” (2013)
    - Hojatoleslam Ali Shirazi, Khamenei’s representative in the Revolutionary Guard: “The Zionist regime will soon be destroyed, and this generation will be witness to its destruction." (2013)
    - Khamenei: “This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated.” (2014)
    - Hossein Salami, the deputy head of the Revolutionary Guard: "We will chase you [Israelis] house to house and will take revenge for every drop of blood of our martyrs in Palestine, and this is the beginning point of Islamic nations awakening for your defeat." (2014)
    - Salami: "Today we are aware of how the Zionist regime is slowly being erased from the world, and indeed, soon, there will be no such thing as the Zionist regime on Planet Earth." (2014)
    - Hossein Sheikholeslam, the secretary-general of the Committee for Support for the Palestinian Intifada: "The issue of Israel's destruction is important, no matter the method. We will obviously implement the strategy of the Imam Khomeini and the Leader [Khamenei] on the issue of destroying the Zionists. The region will not be quiet so long as Israel exists in it ..." (2014)
    - Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guard: "The Revolutionary Guards will fight to the end of the Zionist regime ... We will not rest easy until this epitome of vice is totally deleted from the region's geopolitics." (2015)"

- Assassinat du juge Nisman : entre péronisme et antisémitisme, Renée Fregosi (philosophe et directrice de recherche en science politique à l’Université Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle) - "Vingt et un ans plus tard [après l'attentat à la bombe de l'AMIA], l’affaire n’est toujours pas résolue, et le juge Nisman peut être considéré comme la 86ème victime de cette attaque antisémite" ; "Ce mouvement de protestation [pro-Nisman] met en évidence deux thèmes traditionnels du péronisme : le justicialisme et un certain antisémitisme politique. Des liens entre péronisme et antisémitisme se sont en effet révélés dès les débuts du mouvement péroniste lui-même" ; "Ces souvenirs du péronisme historique ne peuvent qu’ajouter au trouble concernant les soupçons du juge Nisman quant à la tolérance, ou du moins l’indifférence, dont aurait fait preuve Cristina Kirchner face aux attentats antisémites passés".

   "Le juge Alberto Nisman avait repris en charge le dossier de l’attaque terroriste sur la mutuelle juive AMIA, en Argentine, qui avait fait 85 morts et plus de 200 blessés en 1994. Il est décédé le 18 janvier 2015 d’un coup de feu à la tempe, quatre jours après avoir accusé la présidente Cristina Kirchner d’avoir protégé les suspects iraniens de l’attentat. Un mois plus tard, on ne savait toujours pas s’il s’agissait d’un suicide ou d’un assassinat. (Depuis, une enquête privée réalisée à la demande de sa veuve, magistrate comme lui, a conclu à une exécution.)
    En hommage au défunt et à sa cause, et en signe d’indignation face à l’inefficacité des enquêteurs, une marche silencieuse a été appelée par la famille du juge Nisman et plusieurs de ses collègues magistrats ainsi que par les représentants de l’AMIA, le 18 février dans le centre de Buenos-Aires. Selon les sources policières, plus de 400.000 personnes se sont rassemblées derrière la banderole noire « Hommage au juge Nisman. Marche du silence », pour défiler aux seuls cris sporadiques de « justice », « je suis Nisman », « nous sommes tous Nisman ».
    Sous une pluie battante, les manifestants se sont dirigés jusqu’à la Place de Mai (face au palais présidentiel) où ils ont entonné l’hymne national. Sur les réseaux sociaux argentins, on a parlé de « Marche des parapluies » : une référence au nom que l’on avait donné à la manifestation – historique, elle aussi – organisée en 1994 pour protester contre l’attentat à la bombe de l’AMIA. Vingt et un ans plus tard, l’affaire n’est toujours pas résolue, et le juge Nisman peut être considéré comme la 86ème victime de cette attaque antisémite.
    C’est précisément contre l’oubli et l’impunité de ces crimes que se sont mobilisés les Argentins. Bien que tout slogan politique ait été banni, cette marche a ranimé le souvenir d’autres manifestations de masse récentes qui ont secoué Buenos Aires : celle convoquée en 2008 par des organisations agricoles, en pleine crise du soja opposant le gouvernement Kirchner aux agriculteurs, ou encore le cacerolazo géant de 2012 contre la politique générale du gouvernement, et surtout contre la tentative de la présidente de modifier la Constitution pour pouvoir briguer un troisième mandat. [...]
    La lutte contre « l’impunité » a en effet constitué depuis les années 2000 la colonne vertébrale du discours kichnériste, relayé par des associations politisées comme les Mères de la place de Mai (tendance Hebe de Bonafini). [...]
    Or aujourd’hui, ce sont ceux qui se révoltent contre les pratiques péronistes qui réclament justice et s’indignent contre l’impunité mise en œuvre par le pouvoir. Ce mouvement de protestation met alors en évidence deux thèmes traditionnels du péronisme : le justicialisme et un certain antisémitisme politique. Des liens entre péronisme et antisémitisme se sont en effet révélés dès les débuts du mouvement péroniste lui-même : le 17 octobre 1945, lors de la grande mobilisation pour libérer Perón, se sont produits « quelques désordres populaires à travers des provocations clairement antisémites ». Et dans les années 60, une enquête réalisée auprès d’ouvriers de la capitale fédérale fait apparaître que « la différence fondamentale entre les groupes péronistes et les autres réside dans leur opinion sur les Juifs » (voir Leonardo Senkman, El antisemitismo en la Argentina).
    Ces souvenirs du péronisme historique ne peuvent qu’ajouter au trouble concernant les soupçons du juge Nisman quant à la tolérance, ou du moins l’indifférence, dont aurait fait preuve Cristina Kirchner face aux attentats antisémites passés. Ce qui l’aurait incitée à passer un accord en 2013 avec le gouvernement iranien, pour éviter les poursuites à l’encontre des terroristes supposés et étouffer définitivement l’affaire. La persistance d’anciens réseaux souterrains d’extrême-droite national-catholique et antisémite, dans différentes parties du pays, renforce encore le malaise des Argentins confrontés à ces vieux démons."
